Star Wars isn't a series of movies. It is a cultural phenomenon. It's a cultural touchstone that is constantly reinventing itself, splitting into more and more media by the day. First, there were movies and lunch boxes. Then there were toys and video games. Soon there were television shows, novels, even an actual religion recognized in the UK.
Opinions on the evolution of Star Wars vary. Some fans really did love the prequel film trilogy. Some have taken to the new trilogy. Many knew the original three films and read the books, pretending the rest of the franchise's development hasn't happened. Many children were introduced to the series not through the movies or television shows, but by their PlayStations. Star Wars can be experienced visually, or on the many soundtrack albums released as CDs and MP3s.
