Part 2: Things I Learned From Star Wars And George Lucas

Continued from Part 1, which I wrote while watching Episodes IV-VI. Part 2 is as I’m watching the beginning trilogy of the Saga.

1.) Lucas didn’t have a computer that could do what he needed, so he built one from scratch.. It wasnt like they could just walk in a best buy and get a laptop to bring their imagination to life. And even after it was built it was still a fraction as powerful as the ones we have today. Talk about adversity, what a great lesson in overcoming obstacles and seeing an idea through just to make your dream a reality.

2.) There is good in everyone, you just have to find it. Up until the end of Episode 6, I thought Darth Vader was pure evil. Outside of Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader was clearly the meanest and darkest person in the galaxy. But even before the final battle, Darth Vader had to stop and consider if he should go to the light side with Luke.

3.) Sometimes you have to walk away from it before returning. George Lucas took 25 years between the atart if the saga and finishing it.

That’s all I got to because I refused to watch episodes 2 or 3. Jar Jar Binks was so annoying, and the acting was robotic. I’m not even trying to be funny, I really gave up on it. FWIW, Episode 5 was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
