Star wars: the old republic characters
In the case of Star Wars transmedia, George Lucas’ franchise played an essential role, forcing viewers to get to know its entire universe by going beyond the movies and taking them to Star Wars video games, Star Wars books, Star Wars guides and Star Wars comics (among many other products) to learn about everything that happened in Lucasfilm’s galaxy. A spectacular, decades-long storytelling exercise that, with the stroke of a pen, was reduced to zero.
Star Wars Movie Mistakes You May Not Have NoticedThe Star Wars movie gaffes are often hard to find with so many edits and revisions. But here are a few that you can see.
For that reason, the old Star Wars canon fell apart and absolutely everything had to be rebooted. Besides, starting from scratch meant a new editorial line and the possibility for new generations to join the transmedia exercise they had been developing during all this kind. However, not all of what is currently called Star Wars Legends has been forgotten. Lucasfilm’s Story Group has recovered many, many concepts from the old expanded universe to include them in the new one. And these are some of those concepts, characters or facts!

Despite George Lucas’ bad omens, ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope’ was released on May 25, 1977, and was a hit. It generated nearly $800 million dollars at the time worldwide.
Although ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ was a huge hit, ‘Star Wars’ far outperformed Spielberg’s film, but in return it left no less than $12.5 million (about $46 million in today’s dollars) in the bank account.
In addition to its charismatic characters, the most celebrated aspect of the double galactic trilogy is its locations. So, as a tribute, taking advantage of the release of Episode VII we have selected the buildings and constructions of the story that began “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”:
The huge debt of $300 billion, more than €250 billion, dragging down Chinese construction giant Evergrande is starting to take its toll. The U.S. fund Oaktree Capital has announced that it has been awarded two major projects of the Asian developer for a debt amounting to $1 billion, about 870 million euros at the current exchange rate. These are ‘The Castle’ project in Hong Kong and a tourist complex in Shanghai that aims to emulate Venice. Read more

As shown in the novelization of Revenge of the Sith, in response to the decree, nearly two thousand senators, including influential senators such as Bail Organa, Mon Mothma, and Padmé Amidala, issued a petition calling for the restoration of the Senate and removing Palpatine from power (although in the deleted scenes of the Revenge of the Sith DVD, we see the senators thinking of rebellion). Palpatine not only ignores the petition, eventually ordering the arrest of many of the signers, accusing them of being traitors. Those who were not arrested were forced to openly support Palpatine’s policies, however, those senators were able to secretly initiate a plot against Palpatine and the new Galactic Empire. That event, as well as the Great Jedi Purge – the near elimination of the Old Jedi Order (orchestrated by Darth Sidious and Anakin Skywalker – who by then had become Darth Vader) that followed – helped set the stage for the Civil War.
