Star Wars Retold

You’ll remember what we said about fabula and sjuzhet, I trust. Well here’s a concrete example of what I mean. Take the fabula of the original Star Wars trilogy. One treatment of that sjuzhet is George Lucas’s series of films. Here is another treatment; same fabula, different sjuzhet (a guy gets his friend, who has seen bits and pieces of the films but not seen any of them all the way through, to recount the story). Actually I prefer this version. The animation helps. [AR]
