ISBN 978-1-5179-0542-2

Politics, craft, and cultural nostalgia in the remaking of Star Wars for a new age

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away—way back in the twenty-first century’s first decade—Star Wars seemed finished. Then in 2012 George Lucas shocked the entertainment world by selling the franchise, along with Lucasfilm, to Disney. This is the story of how, over the next five years, Star Wars went from near-certain extinction to what Wired magazine would call “the forever franchise,” with more films in the works than its first four decades had produced.

Focusing on The Force Awakens (2015), Rogue One (2016), The Last Jedi (2017), and the television series Rebels (2014–18), Dan Golding explores the significance of pop culture nostalgia in overcoming the skepticism, if not downright hostility, that greeted the Star Wars relaunch. At the same time he shows how Disney, even as it tapped a backward-looking obsession, was nonetheless creating genuinely new and contemporary entries in the Star Wars universe.

A host of cultural factors and forces propelled the Disney-engineered Star Wars renaissance, and all figure in Golding’s deeply informed analysis: from John Williams’s music in The Force Awakens to Peter Cushing’s CGI face in Rogue One, to Carrie Fisher’s passing, to the rapidly changing audience demographic. Star Wars after Lucas delves into the various responses and political uses of the new Star Wars in a wider context, as in reaction videos on YouTube and hate-filled, misogynistic online rants. In its granular textual readings, broad cultural scope, and insights into the complexities of the multimedia galaxy, this book is as entertaining as it is enlightening, an apt reflection of the enduring power of the Star Wars franchise.

The foundation of popular culture was shaken to its core in 1977 when George Lucas released one of the most important films in modern American history: Star Wars: A New Hope. A hardcover, richly illustrated joyride Star Wars: A Galaxy of Collectibles, frames four decades of intergalactic adventures with rare collectibles, astonishing collections and classic Star Wars images.

Showcasing fabulous movie props, original art, prototypes, movie posters, rarities, classic toys, and exclusive interviews with artists who created some of the most iconic scenes from the original movie trilogy, Star Wars: A Galaxy of Collectibles pulls back the curtain to reveal a stunning behind-the-scenes view of the world’s favorite space opera.

A treasure trove of seldom-seen wonders fill this galactic celebration, including:

  • Princess Leia’s Slave Girl outfit worn as a prisoner of Jabba the Hutt
  • Darth Vader’s helmet and costume
  • A working model of The Death Star from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
  • Chewbacca’s headpiece used in the original trilogy
  • An R2-D2 droid that sold for $2.76 million

  • Rare move posters

  • The key to the rebellion’s survival,
  • The one who never fails to save the day?

Could it be because he’s secretly a Zen master?

Discover your inner R2—and the truth about who you really are!

This delightful and illuminating romp unfolds in the form of a fictional dialogue between the author—a die-hard Star Wars devotee with a deep connection to Zen—and two cosplayers dressed as C-3PO and R2-D2 who insist on being called by their character names. Along the way, you’ll come to see what everyone’s favorite astromech can teach us about peace, happiness, and life’s true meaning.
