A long time ago in a galaxy that makes no sense

One of the most beloved franchises of all time, Star Wars is a futuristic, intergalactic adventure ironically set “a long time ago.”

Since 1977, the world has loved the deep-space story of an unlikely hero, an evil empire, and a misguided chosen one whose destiny will keep the galaxy in balance.

Over the years, we’ve seen the original story developed not only in chronological order, but with prequels and late sequels that have brought us new characters and expanded plots that have only deepened our love for the franchise.

And while any fiction needs to be taken with a grain of salt, because it is, after all, fiction, there should still be enough continuity to allow us to take the plot seriously.

Sadly, Star Wars doesn’t always do that.
