It’s May the 4th — May the Fourth be with you!

As the iconic first frames began to crawl across that big screen in 1977, I was instantly mesmerized. But I never dreamed that — nine movies and more than 40 years later — Star Wars would still be the huge cultural phenomenon that it is today .

Despite some inarguably cringeworthy moments, the series’ groundbreaking visual effects, majestic soundtrack, and good-over-evil happy endings have made it an enduring classic. And which of us hasn’t taken away some of its life lessons from our binge-watching sessions?
