Andreas Rauscher analyzes the complex convergence of film, video games, and other media within the Star Wars franchise. He argues that stylistic influence within the franchise extends in multiple directions, as while the games bear cinematic elements, the recent film entries remediate ludic concepts. Overall, he notes that the remediation of ludic structures and situations provides a key aesthetic element to Lucasfilm and Disney’s recent Star Wars films.
