After the success of Star Wars, the sequel became one of the most highly anticipated films of all time, giving George Lucas and his team a high bar of audience expectation that would continue for every subsequent film in the saga. What they gave us became know as one of the best sequels of all time and what many consider to be the finest movie in the Star Wars series to date.
