10. Star Wars

Star Wars 101

Star Wars has captivated multiple generations since A New Hope came out in 1997. The universe has only grown throughout the decades with new projects still to be released. There are movies, books, cartoons, and streaming series. For fans the Star Wars universe is truly immersive, for others, all the content can be intimidating. Where should one start? What is the Empire? Resistance? Republic? Sith? The Force? Jedi? Midichlorians? It can be a lot to keep track of. But the ongoing impact on pop culture cannot be ignored.
