Star Wars for beginners: how they never told you

in #english5 years ago

Hi, Steemians! In this opportunity, with the help of some sources, I will dare to tell you the story of my favorite sagas: Star Wars

Before starting: I know it is difficult to explain "Star Wars" because there are thousands of details that fans do not want to leave out and that confuses those who try to understand history for the first time. Also, the story does not start at the beginning, it starts in the middle: in 1977, in episode IV, then the V Y VI. 16 years later they made 3 other films that told the beginning of the story, that is, episodes I, II and III. After Disney bought the franchise 3 years ago, it was decided to make the last 3 episodes of the story, that is to say the VII, VIII and IX and in that we go now.

The protagonist of all the films is a boy named Anakin Skywalker. Anakin is a slave who lives his life quietly. Everything changes when he meets two Jedi (Qui-Gon Jinn and his disciple Obi Wan Kenobi) The Jedi are a kind of space samurai. They even have a code of honor similar to the samurai and are responsible for protecting the universe.

The Jedi discover that Anakin can use the force, which is an energy that is in the whole universe, present in all things and living beings. The Jedi can use force and move things and even control minds. These Jedi are on a mission protecting the young Queen Amidala. The Queen and little Anakin become friends. The Jedi take the boy to train him but on the way, Qui Gon Jinn is killed by a Sith. The Jedi are the light side of the force and the Siths the dark side, the hate side, the revenge side, etc. So, the counterpart of a Jedi is a Sith.
Obi Wan Kenobi promises, then, that he will train young Anakin in the ways of force. 10 years later,Anakin is an apprentice of Jedi, but he is very powerful, that makes him very arrogant. But his teacher, Obi Wan, tries to teach him all the Jedi precepts. However, Anakin is sent to protect the former Queen Amidala - now senator - and falls in love with her. Which is forbidden for a Jedi. So both end up having a secret affair. They even get married. On the other hand, such a Chancellor Palpatine orders to create an army of clones with the pretext of helping the Jedi but in reality he is amassing more and more power every day. And it starts to return a bad influence for Anakin, who is afraid because Padme Amidala is pregnant.

Palpatine tells him that the Jedi do not know many things and convinces him to leave the Jedi order and join the dark side to save her. Anakin dreams that she will die. And so, Anakin stops being a Jedi, abandons the side of the Light, passes to the dark side and becomes a Sith who is known as Darth Vader. But his friend, Obi Wan confronts him and the discussion ends in a spectacular battle where Anakin loses his legs and an arm. Then, his body burns completely. Anakin has to wear a mask to breathe and some devices to be able to live. Padme dies giving birth to twins and both are sent to different parts of the galaxy. And to top it all, Chancellor Palpatine - who is also a Sith - becomes emperor and uses the army of clones to kill all the Jedi. A few manage to escape and now the galaxy is controlled by an empire, led by Emperor Palpatine and his right hand Darth Vader. But that does not like many people and secretly form a rebel alliance against the empire and in that alliance many years later, is the daughter of Darth Vader: Princess Leia. Leia is captured by Darth Vader, her father. But he does not know what his father is and manages to send a message addressed to Obi Wan in droids that end by chance, in the hands of Luke Skywalker.

And so Obi Wan and Luke are going to rescue the princess. But they need a ship and a pilot and here they enter, the mercenary Han Solo on his ship: the Millennium Falcon and his friend and co-pilot Chewbacca (it's the one that looks like a giant dog but it's actually a species called "Wookie")

Together they manage to rescue the princess but before leaving someone stops them: it is Darth Vader.
Darth Vader and Obi Wan fight, teacher and student meet again. But Obi Wan dies and his spirit tells Luke to look for Master Yoda to finish him training.

What Darth Vader wanted from Princess Leia was to give him the plans of the Death Star, a giant special base with the power to destroy a planet. With those planes the rebels could destroy it and without the Death Star the empire would not be so strong. Luke decides to join the rebellion. The Death Star has a structural failure - put by an engineer loyal to the rebellion - a shot in its core destroys it. And so the rebels play everything in one last battle in space. And thanks to the help of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker uses the force to shoot at the core of the death star and manages to destroy it. But the empire plans to counterattack in a big way ...

While Luke is with Master Yoda finishing his Jedi training, he learns that Han Solo has been captured, the rebels are about to be destroyed and he returns to help his friends. He enters a base and there he finds himself face to face with Darth Vader who is too powerful and cuts off Luke's hand. And there he asks him to join him, that together they would be invincible, and he confesses that Obi Wan never told him the truth, and there Luke finds out that Darth Vader is his father.

In order to talk about my favorite saga, I share this figure of Princess Leia that I LOVED. It's from @wartrapa. I have already an idea of what I want for my birthday.
