I grew up reading Mag Magazine, and the original Star Wars movie was one of the best ever. Gwynn Watkins:
Following the release of The Empire Strikes Back, popular topics of discussion included ‘Is Darth Vader really Luke’s father, or is he lying?’ and ‘If the first and second movies are actually the fourth and five movies, how long will this whole Star Wars thing go on?” In 1982, Mad Magazine attempted to answer some of these questions by revealing George Lucas’ top-secret “Master Plan for Future Space Films,” a hilarious parody that purports to reveal the storyline for the first 12 Star Wars movies.
12? Here’s the blast from the past, nearly 24 years ago.
This thing is a franchise without end.
