Synopsis of Star Wars: A New Hope Screenplay:

The original screenplay of “A New Hope”, the first episode of “Star Wars”, the classic sci-fi film saga. Published to coincide with the launch of the remastered films, featuring stills from the production.

Star Wars – A New Hope was the first film released in the Star Wars saga. The film happens 19 years after the formation of the Galactic Empire. Construction has finished on the Death Star, a weapon capable of destroying a planet. Princess Leia Organa, leader of the Rebel Alliance, receives the weapon’s plans hoping on finding a weakness, but unfortunately for her and the rebel alliance, she is captured and taken to the Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived all alone for years on the desert planet Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training as they — along with Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2 — attempt to rescue the Princess from the Empire.

Derived from George Lucas’s original story, the screenplay was composed by George Lucas. This produced a psychologically complex piece of epic storytelling, treasurably enhanced by the verbal jousting – and the affecting romance – between Han Solo and Princess Leia.
