"May the Force be with you” entered the modern lexicon as a new kind of science fiction film when "Star Wars," opened at 32 theaters. George Lucas’s space epic, starring Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, featured stunning special effects and was a smash hit worldwide. It went on to win six Academy Awards out of 10 nominations — plus an additional special Academy Award for sound effects. The film was part of a larger saga and in later years was retitled Star Wars — Episode IV: A New Hope as prequels were released.
