The data that needs to be collected for this task would simply as list of the key or main characters in the star wars series. I don’t want my poster to distract audiences with an overly complicated system of lines like the relationship chart for The Fast and The Furious. Instead i want audiences to be able to follow the system without it feeling it futile to even participate in using because of it’s over complexity. Because of this i will be narrowing the umber of characters to 15 and i will only be using characters from the original trilogy. I see this to be the best decision as the original trilogy for me, is the more iconic and memorable trilogy compared to the prequels. To collect the data i used the official star wars website which has a detailed and informative ‘databank’ http://www.starwars.com/databank.
The databank was helpful as it gave me an insight into how vast the star wars universe is, from this site i decided on my top 15 characters that will be used in the poster:
C3PO, R2D2, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Sola, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Ben Kenobi, Darth Vader, The Emperor, Jabba the Hutt, Lando Calrissian, Yoda, Admiral Ackbar and the Stormtroopers.
