Interesting view of things.....
But we ALL knew in 1977 when it first came out, that it wasn't set on Earth OR in our future.
It was pretty well drummed into the audience from the opening credits, that it was a Galaxy Far Far Away, and Long Long ago. It was accepted by the
audience, as it was intended.
Lucas always said it was based on his childhood days of cinema serials like Flash Gordon from the 1930s.
Fast forward 40+ Earth years, and "Some" modern people are now so mentally challenged, they see things that were never there.
Although, the Strangest thing about the Early Star Wars movies was Luke Skywalker........how he changed from an all American kid, into a totally
different person, aged 10 years in 2 and had a face transplant.
Its only been the last 10 years or so, with the information super highway, that everyone now knows he had a serious car accident at the time and his
face had to be rebuilt. (along with all the other problems that would have presented for the production crew of the Star Wars francise).
Still, it is what it is.......
