Star Wars is the brain baby of George Lucas. George Lucas is the amazing filmmaker who created not only the Star Wars franchise but also the Indiana Jones franchise. Even though the Indiana Jones movies are really popular in their own right, a lot of people know Lucas through the Star Wars movies. If you're an ardent fan then you've probably seen him in a couple of the Star Wars movies. He's been nominated for several awards including four academy awards (the Oscars). His 1973 movie, American Graffiti even got five Oscar nominations. So, he was pretty successful before the Star Wars franchise.
However, the arrival of the Star Wars franchise in 1977 was monumental for him and for Hollywood. It became the highest-grossing film at that time and it won a mind-blowing six Oscars. This, however, was not the biggest impact Star Wars made. The cult following this franchise inspired was absolutely massive. This was even more impressive because the first Star Wars trilogy did not exist as a comic or as a novel. Other franchises with this much impact usually existed prior to the movie, i.e Harry Potter, Iron Man, Superman, The Avengers etc.
George Lucas - creator of the Star Wars Franchise
In 1977, Lucas released this movie not knowing how much impact it would have. There was even a significant amount of trouble during the production of the movie which would normally be a bad sign but this was not the case for the Star Wars franchise. This franchise gave us a lot of characters to root for, to grow to understand and a lot of shocking plot twists but we still keep going back for more.
One such character is Yoda. Yoda is a very popular Star Wars character. He's been around for a while (before the Galactic Republic and during the Galactic Empire.) He's often ranked alongside Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi and Darth Vader. He is known for being very wise and powerful. He trained Jedi for eight centuries and also served as the Grand Master of the Jedi Order. He played very important roles in the pivotal Clone Wars. He also helped and instructed Luke Skywalker which led to the rebirth or revival of the Jedi. The bottom line is: Yoda is a very important Star Wars character.
Baby Yoda Is A Thing
Even though he's (spoiler alert!) dead, his legacy lives on. Plus, there's an entire Baby Yoda specie to look forward to. Yoda toys are actually selling out very quickly because of the internet's new obsession with the Baby Yoda. The set we'll be discussing today is not a Baby Yoda set but it's still equally as heartwarming. Plus Yoda was almost a thousand years old and if we take that into consideration, we have to admit he aged very well.
