Star Wars is kind of a big deal for the LiveJournal U.S. crew. We can break into a conversation about our favorite moments in a galaxy far, far away faster than Luke Skywalker can start complaining about missing a trip to Toshi Station to pick up power converters.

To celebrate the release of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray, we're giving away a Star Wars gift pack to one LiveJournal user who writes our favorite Star Wars movie pitch in Friday's Writer's Block on the LiveJournal homepage. The winner will receive a copy of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray (or DVD equivalent* if you don't have a Blu-ray player) and a few other Star Wars related items.

Your movie pitch could be anything. Write a sequel, a prequel, or anything in-between. You're eligible as long as your story takes place in the Star Wars universe. Entering is easier than bull's-eyeing womp rats in your T-16 back home but winning will require... A creative force, if you will.

General rules:
Keep submissions limited to 300 words or less
No droids allowed!

* The Blu-ray version of the Star Wars saga is not being released on DVD at this time. A winner requesting the DVD version of the films will receive the most recent release of the Star Wars films available on the DVD format.

Star Wars VII - The Quest for Peace
With the control and fear of the Empire now gone, the worlds in the galaxy resumed self control. For many it was an easy task to return to the ways of the once stable Republic. All the civilized worlds agreeing to rebuild the Senate to help ensure the peace. Before too long though there arose a few sinister characters who attempted to usurp power by means other than honorable.
A request from the Senate that the Order of the Jedi be reborn and they call on the aging Luke Skywalker and Leia Solo, the only known people that the Force was strong within to search for others who could become Jedi's and help senate maintain the Republic. Luke and Leia who had opened a school to help guide others who were found to posses the acceptable levels of midiclorians stresses the importance of self rule and local laws to the Senate but agrees to allow some of their star pupils to assist the Senate as agents to help seek out those who would disrupt the peace.
The adventures of these agents range from comical to the thrilling in their attempt to obtain the needed information for the Senate. C3PO and R2D2 are the only characters from the previous trilogy's who extend into the next episode as they are the messengers between the School and the Senate.
