To Conclude

Even though theaters thought Star Wars would bomb and never actually believed it could become what it is today, history has shown that the underdogs often win. This franchise has influenced many people’s lives and has become the ultimate guilty pleasure for those who seek both action and comedy, with a bit of romance and thriller mixed in.

However, I do know all those movies are quite long, and you may not be able to watch them all in just a few days. Until you find time for a marathon, enjoy Star Wars quotes that have marked some of the best decades of the US film industry.
