Star Wars: A must for all Nerds

By: Sophia Alves


There is no universe richer in stories, characters and worlds than the Star Wars universe. There's a lot to love about Star Wars, from Luke Skywalker's epic journey to cinematic space battles. 

What is a nerd?

The term “nerd” used to be used to refer to people who were extremely intelligent but socially inept. That definition still exists, but the term is now also used to refer to people who are passionate about a particular subject or activity. Nerds are often experts in their fields of interest and can be extremely dedicated to their passions.

Many nerds are fans of comics, anime, video games and other forms of "geek" entertainment. They may also be passionate about science, history, math or other intellectual subjects. Nerds are usually extremely creative and innovative, and many of them end up working in technology or other scientific fields.

Why do nerds love Star Wars?

Since 1977, Star Wars has captivated nerds of all ages. The franchise created by George Lucas tells the story of a galaxy far, far away, full of memorable characters, epic battles and a gripping storyline.

Nerds love Star Wars because the movies offer something for everyone: adventure, comedy, romance, drama, and of course, gunfire and explosions. In addition, the films are full of references to classic mythologies and literary works, which makes them even more interesting for fans of these themes.

Another reason nerds love Star Wars is the fact that the franchise is always renewing itself. New characters and stories are introduced in spin-offs and alternate trilogies, which keeps fans excited about what's to come.

the star wars movies

From the first time we watched a Star Wars movie, we were fascinated by the universe created by George Lucas. The franchise has spawned a number of feature films, including the three original trilogy films, the prequel trilogy, and the most recent sequel trilogy. In addition to films, the franchise also has a wide range of comics, books and games.

The Star Wars movies transport us to an entirely different world filled with aliens, robots and spaceships. The story follows the adventures of the Skywalker family as they fight the Galactic Empire and their Sith allies. The saga is marked by great battles, romance and unexpected twists.

Each film in the franchise is unique and special, but here are some of our favorites:

– Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977): The first film in the franchise and the one that introduced the world of Star Wars to a wide audience. The story follows Luke Skywalker as he teams up with Princess Leia to fight the Galactic Empire.

– Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980): The second film in the original trilogy and one of the most popular in the franchise. In that film, Luke trains with Yoda to become a Jedi and faces Darth Vader for the first time.

– Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983): The third and final film in the original trilogy. In that film, Luke faces Darth Vader once again and frees his family from the Galactic Empire.

– Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999): The first film in the prequel trilogy and the introduction to the story of Anakin Skywalker. In this film, we see how Anakin became one of the greatest Sith in history and how he became involved with the Galactic Empire.

– Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002): The second film in the prequel trilogy. In that film, Anakin falls to the dark side of the Force and becomes Darth Vader. We also see the battle between the Jedi and the Sith for control of the Galaxy.

– Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005): The third and final film in the prequel trilogy. In that film, Darth Vader completes his rise to power and destroys the Jedi. We also witness the final battle between the Sith and the Jedi that defines the future of the Galaxy.

– Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015): The first film in the sequel trilogy and continuation of the original story. In that film, we see the Galaxy at war again and the main characters struggling to survive.

– Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2017): The second film in the sequel trilogy. In that film, Luke Skywalker trains Rey in the Force and faces Darth Vader for the last time. We also witness the final battle between the Sith and the Jedi, which will define the future of the Galaxy.

the original trilogy

The original trilogy is the backbone of the Star Wars franchise, and while it might not be as technologically advanced as the last three trilogies, it's still a lot of fun to watch. Also, the movies are important for understanding the mythology behind the franchise.

The return of the trilogy

The Star Wars trilogy was a milestone in the history of cinema. The films were extremely well received by audiences and critics alike, and the franchise gained worldwide fame. The original trilogy tells the story of Luke Skywalker, a young lighthouse keeper who becomes embroiled in a galactic civil war. Skywalker joins the Rebel Alliance to fight the Galactic Empire, and eventually becomes one of the heroes of the Rebellion.

The last three films in the series were released between 1999 and 2005, and continued the story of Skywalker and his family. The trilogy is known for its exclusive focus on story and characters, without many action or fantasy elements. These films are considered by fans as the best of the franchise, and bring a new perspective on the original saga.

the new trilogy

The Star Wars films are among the most popular of all time. The original series, released in the 1970s and 1980s, is a cinema classic and has marked generations. The new trilogy, which started in 2015 with the release of Episode VII – The Force Awakens, has been a success both with critics and audiences.

The new trilogy manages to capture the essence of the original films, while presenting an entirely new and exciting story. The characters are complex and interesting, and the story develops organically and coherently. Furthermore, the trilogy has some of the best visual effects ever seen in a Hollywood film.

If you haven't watched the new trilogy yet, go check it out! You will not regret.

And now? The future of Star Wars movies

Since the last Star Wars franchise, a lot has changed. The world of movies is increasingly competitive and the saga will need to adapt to survive.

The Star Wars franchise is aging. Fans who grew up watching the original series movies are well into their 50s. Also, with the popularity of the show's expanded universe, it's hard for new fans to relate to the story.

The future of Star Wars movies will be interesting to watch. Disney will need to make some tough decisions to keep the franchise relevant to new generations.


When talking about movies for nerds, the Star Wars franchise is one of the first that comes to mind. The saga consists of 9 films, the last 3 being recently released, and all of them are amazing. The characters, the story, the battles and the mythology involved are what make this franchise a classic of nerd cinema.
