Happy anniversary, Star Wars (May 25th)! Did you know, that on May 25th in 1977 the original Star Wars movie was released? It was an enormous Memorial Day weekend box office hit.
You can celebrate by watching it again! Andersen Library has a copy of Star Wars in the 2nd-floor Browsing DVD Feature Films at “call number” Sta (they’re alphabetical by title). In fact, we have the original trilogy there (Star wars: A new hope, The Empire strikes back, and Return of the Jedi), and the prequel trilogy (The phantom menace, Attack of the clones, Revenge of the Sith) so you can make a whole Star Wars weekend of it. For extra fun you could check out the parody film Spaceballs too (2nd-floor Browsing DVD Feature Films, Spa).
And there’s more than the films! Search Research@UWW to find that Andersen Library has books such as The ultimate Star Wars and philosophy: You must unlearn what you have learned (online ebook from Wiley), novels such as Star Wars: The Force awakens (2nd-floor Browsing Books, PS3556.O756 F67 2015), video games such as Star Wars battlefront (2nd-floor Browsing Video Games, Xbox One Sta 2015), and graphic novels such as Star Wars rebellion. Volume 2, The Ahakista gambit (2nd-floor Browsing Graphic Novels, PN6728.S73 B334 2008).
Please ask a librarian (visit the Reference Desk, call 262.472.1032, or choose to email or chat) for assistance with finding additional materials.
May the Force be with you this weekend!
