Did Star Wars Really Happen?
OK, this started as some fun with me messing with my friends heads in a series of Facebook posts while I was rewatching the original Star Wars trilogy, but it grew so out of hand I thought I’d expand on it here. To mess with your head. The Premise It’s simple: Star Wars didn’t really happen the way it did in the movies. Sure, there was an evil galactic empire that overthrew a good-natured republic and killed off a whole bunch of space-wizards in the process, but that was in the prequel trilogy and I’m not going to go there because while they’re kinda watchable movies they’re also pretty bad as far as the details and canon consistency are concerned, so I’m just going to focus on the original trilogy: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.
