Star Wars 101: From the Force to Hairy Walking Carpets

About this Training

Star Wars is a household name, a franchise emboldened by its recent acquisition by Disney. Generations of people have lived through the evolution of this amazing universe of pulpy and action-driven stories. It has inspired an entire galaxy of interesting species, characters, and empires all woven together by an all-powerful Force wielded by the guardians of its power and balance. The world of Star Wars spans movies, television, cartoons, toys & collectibles, games, comics, amusement parks, and an entire category of viral internet discussions. The themes of light and dark are blurred by strong characters that have broken their molds since George Lucas’s Star Wars IV: A New Hope was released in theaters on May 25, 1977. Join us in in our exploration of a galaxy, far, far away, in this brief introductory exploration of the Star Wars Universe and, as always, May the Force be with you!
