George Lucas is the creator, writer, and obviously director of Star Wars. He originally planned to make three movies (a trilogy) and they were released in the seventies and early eighties. The first movie was titled, "A New Hope," the second "Empire Strikes Back," and the third and last "Return of the Jedi." These movies centered on the future universe where evil reigns and a rebellion against evil is lead by the only remaining Jedi: Luke Skywalker. It centers around Luke, his sister Princess Leia (although he did not find out she was his sister until the last movie because they were separated at birth), their friend Han Solo and his companion named Chewie (a Wookie whom he saved). Together, and with the help of droids R2D2 and C3PO, the three attempt to overthrow the Empire, which is the dark side government in power over the universe. The success of these movies was more than Lucas had ever dreamed for, and he was financially set for life. In 1994, Lucas began writing a fourth installment in the Star Wars series.

These movies would focus on the tragedy of talented Jedi Anakin Skywalker and his turn towards the dark side (and later become Darth Vader). So the new movies are titled episode one through
three and the older movies are titled episodes four through
six. Here is a complete list of the Star Wars movies:
Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Star Wars Episode V: Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
The Star Wars movies are indeed one long story of tragedy. It is the tragedy of Anakin Skywalker's life as he turns from a hopeful Jedi toward the dark side, later becoming the ruthless Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
