Star Wars: The Acting Awakens — A Guest Blog by Eric Onkenhout
Star Wars is typically known for its masterful story-telling, and its ground breaking special effects. However, the one aspect that Star Wars is not typically known for is its acting. That is why I want to discuss some examples of great acting performances in Star Wars. When Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope premiered in May 1977, movies with such a profound classic tale of good vs. evil were not the norm–hence the long-lasting effect it had on the following generations. The same goes for the special effects; a whole entire special effects division (ILM) had to be built in order to perform the incredible effects that have influenced movies to this day.
