Star Wars FAQs

What Genre is Star Wars?

It's tricky to tackle what the essence of Star Wars really is. It has sci-fi elements, action, adventure, drama and more! However, there is a strong argument that Star Wars falls into a fantasy setting, as well as space opera. The introduction of the Force is, what one could say, the driving force for the argument that Star Wars is a fantasy movie set in space. As an element that can't exist in our reality, it's purely fictitious. There's also a strong case for Star Wars as a space opera. While the core movies tend to lean in one direction, just know that the introduction of additional TV series and spinoffs can have their own genres! For example, the popular Disney+ series, The Mandalorian is very much a space western. We can't wait to see what new surprises the Star Wars franchise has in store for everyone!

What are Star Wars fans called?

As you may very well know, there has been a years-long debate about whether Star Wars or Star Trek is better. (We'd like to say that you can legitimately enjoy both!) Star Trek fans are commonly referred to as "Trekkies" or less commonly "Trekkers", but what about the Star Wars fans? Believe it or not, Star Wars fans don't have an identifying name for themselves, unlike many other geeky fan communities! And you know what? That's okay, too.

Who are the good guys in Star Wars?

Like many other fantasy and sci-fi series, Star Wars has a good vs. evil fight brewing between two opposing sides. There are political movements as well as fights over the Force and its use, creating two struggles with two sets of "bad guys" and "good guys". There have always been differing views on the Force, with the Jedi (light side) fighting against the Sith (dark side). The perspective is usually that the Jedi are the good guys, while the Sith are the bad guys.

Then you have the Rebels and The Empire. The prequel trilogy shows how the Galactic Republic became The Empire, which is in full control of the galaxy by the time of the original trilogy. After the events of the original trilogy, it is revealed that the Empire is no more, and instead, you have The Resistance and the First Order. (The First Order rose up from the shambles of the Empire.) As we continue to see an expansion of the Star Wars universe, we'll probably see more governments rise and fall, but the light and dark sides of the Force are likely to continue as they always have.

How long ago was Star Wars?

The first Star Wars movie was released on May 25th, 1977. It was originally titled Star Wars, and later changed to Star Wars: A New Hope 1981 after its re-release.

What to know before watching The Mandalorian?

As we mentioned before, The Mandalorian deviates from the typical genre for other Star Wars movies as a space western. It's also a TV series, which you can only watch if you have Disney+. The events of this series fall in the middle of a bunch of other Star Wars movies and TV series, so if you're unfamiliar with the world of Star Wars, be prepared for some spoilers.

The Mandalorian occurs 5 years after The Return of the Jedi, which is the last film in the original trilogy. With the Empire licking its wounds, you're getting a glimpse at the rise of the First Order, which plays a huge part as the big bad of the sequel trilogy. If you're hoping to binge-watch some Star Wars movies or TV series during the party, don't forget to check out some of our favorite Star Wars drink and snack recipes!

What to wear to a Star Wars party?

This may differ from event to event, but in general, Star Wars clothing is encouraged. That may mean wearing a Star Wars shirt or hat. However, if it's specifically a Star Wars costume party, costumes may be encouraged or even required! And who doesn't love a fun costume party? You'll see that we have plenty of Star Wars apparel and costumes in the gift guide below should you be interested in snagging something for yourself before you attend.

And Now for Some Questions about Lightsabers

We sell Star Wars lightsabers, from telescoping plastic lightsabers to higher-end Force FX lightsabers, even lightsaber lights. What can we say? We're into lightsabers! That means we've also learned a fair bit of lightsaber lore, so let's tackle some questions about lightsabers!

Did Obi-Wan Have a Green Lightsaber?

No, Obi-Wan Kenobi had 3 lightsabers and all of them were blue. His first lightsaber was lost during his duel with Darth Maul and his second was taken by the Geonosians. Obi-Wan used his third lightsaber in both duels with Anakin/Darth Vader.

Who Has Darth Vader's Lightsaber?

Darth Vader used several lightsabers, but two of them were particularly notable. Anakin Skywalker's second blue lightsaber was taken by Obi-Wan Kenobi and then it passed to Luke and finally Rey. Darth Vader's red lightsaber was lost and presumed destroyed along with the Death Star II.

Does Darth Sidious Have a Lightsaber?

Darth Sidious had two lightsabers, both with red blades and nearly identical. He used one of them in a duel with Mace Windu and other Jedi Masters, and the other in a duel with Yoda. Of course, Sidious tended to let servants like Darth Vader do his bidding.

What Color is Qui-Gon Jinn's Lightsaber?

Qui-Gon Jinn used a green lightsaber throughout his time as a Jedi, up until his death in the duel with Darth Maul. Obi-Wan's own lightsaber was destroyed in the same duel, so he used Qui-Gon's lightsaber briefly to defeat Darth Maul.
