Introduction

One of the greatest epics in modern cinema, Star Wars: A New Hope introduces a set of memorable characters who have charmed movie-goers for decades. Who can forget naïve and eager Luke Skywalker, the brave and determined Princess Leia, or the brash and charismatic Han Solo? Few villains can create chills and such a strong on-screen presence as the iconic Darth Vader.
