STAR WARS ART GALLERY #11
Star Wars is a multi-genre mythology and multimedia franchise created by George Lucas in 1976. Comprising movies, novels, comics,
video games, toys, and numerous television series, the Star Wars franchise employs archetypal motifs common to religions, classical
mythology, and political climax, as well as musical motifs of those same aspects.
As one of the foremost examples of the space opera subgenre of science fiction, Star Wars has become part of mainstream popular
culture, as well as being one of the highest-grossing series of all time. In 2012, The Walt Disney Company bought the rights to the
franchise from George Lucas for 4.05 billion dollars. Since then, Disney has split off Star Wars into two main categories, those
being Star Wars Legends and Star Wars Canon, with Canon being the "official" story of the franchise.
