The wide influence of Star Wars has meant that its existence as a phenomenon of popular culture could not be ignored, yet by no means did it mean lack of criticism. As Brooker notes, the film’s popularity and simplicity seemed to have discouraged the academic circles from analyzing the Star Wars films as texts, instead focusing on it as a cultural phenomenon: its audiences, merchandizing, and special effects (2009, p. 8).
