Edit List

The Star Wars franchise is perhaps the most famous series in film history. Besides being an homage to the sci-fi serials of the 40's that creator George Lucas grew up on, it also helped to revolutionise the film industry as we know it. It helped to make the summer blockbuster an important staple in the industry, but also helped to develop special effects and the way that the stories in film were told. In short, it changed film forever, and it still has influence to this day.

But what connections do Star Wars and the Criterion Collection have? More than you would expect. The following list contains the numerous actors, directors, writers and so on who have both been in Star Wars and a Criterion film at some point. Hope you enjoy, and may the force be with you!
