I just stumbled across an early explanation of mine for Star Wars as I knew it at the time. It made me laugh, and I just had to share:
Did I mention that I am a Star Wars nut? Well, guess I should just say that I'm trying to read all the books. There's about 130 right now. Of the ones in the series, anyway. And there's 5 movies so far. Next summer they're coming out with number 6. It's the last one. Actually, it's number 3. Don't ask me why, but they made 4, 5, and 6 before they made 1, 2, and 3. So 3 will come out soon, and I can't wait! Let me list them in order.
Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
Episode 3: (unknown as of now)
Episode 4: A New Hope
Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
Episode 6: Return of the Jedi
Also, the two sets of 3 are seperated by 20 years. In the movies, and in real life. In 4, 5, and 6, Luke Skywalker is this kid and he becomes a Jedi and defeats the Empire with the help of his friends, Han, Chewbacca (he is a Wookie, alien), and Princess Leia. Her planet gets blown up by the Empire in the beginning. Anyway, 1, 2, and 3 are about Luke's mom and dad. How they meet, and get married, and turn evil and all that cool stuff. Oh, and in 1, 2, and 3, Obi-Wan is a Jedi, and he goes on to be in 4, 5, and 6 as the guy that teaches Luke to be a Jedi. Pretty cool. Actually, very cool if you're a SW freak. Oh, and the movie director waited 20 years after Return of the Jedi to make 1, 2, and 3.
