Since some bloke called George Lucas took a gamble with his ‘epic space opera’ film in 1977, Star Wars has gone on to become a pop-culture phenomenon spanning decades and spawning the most successful film merchandising franchise in history. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or new to the Force, we’ve gone and located all the Star Wars movies on the net available to stream, rent or buy in Australia.
