The character perspective/phycological lens allows the viewer to see Star Wars: A New Hope through the eyes of the many main and supporting characters. It is the most effective for reflecting on the different personalities, thoughts, and their growth over the course of the movie. We can see how diverse the cast is and how their goals orient the movie in different directions. As the viewer, the character perspective lens grants us a better understanding of their wants and fears. In cases with dynamic characters such as Han Solo, it is easy to evaluate their development throughout the story plot. In the beginning, the movie introduces Han Solo as an arrogant, selfish, and narrow-minded person who only cares about getting a bountiful reward. By delivering Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and the droids safely to Alderaan, he would receive a large amount of money. Along the journey, we can see how the characters contrast with each other. When the Millennium Falcon was trapped in the Death Star, Luke discovered Princess Leia was imprisoned on board. Although Han Solo was against rescuing Leia, he perked up when Luke said they would get a reward for saving the Princess of Alderaan. With the persuasion of a bounty, he agreed. By looking at Han Solo’s background, we understand his thoughts during the scene. He grew up in an environment full of crime and knows to put himself before others. If he does not get anything out of doing something, he won’t agree to it. Through the eyes of Luke Skywalker, we know that he is attracted to Princess Leia through his first impression of her in the hologram. Knowing that he has a chance to present himself as a hero, he will do it to try and impress her. Also by being the male protagonist, it is his job to save the female in danger because of the gender standards at the time. By looking through the character perspective lens, we understand how these two different characters react in the situation. When we get to the climax of the movie, Han Solo and Luke split paths. Luke chooses to help the Rebel Force and fight the Death Star while Han’s deal is complete and he is happy with his reward. He understands that his task is done and he has no interest to help them further. Although Han Solo concluded that his job was done, he returned to help Luke when he was in a time of need. With his aid, Luke was able to blow up the Death Star and bring the Rebel Force to victory. In the end, both Luke and Han Solo were given medals to commemorate their bravery and assistance. We can see how much Han Solo has grown since the beginning of the movie, from someone who didn’t care about the well being of others to a character that returns to aid his friends. The different character perspectives also tie in with the other lenses including the gender, racial, and social power lens. With Leia being a female and a noble, her objectives will greatly differ with Han Solos who is a male and in the worker class. To conclude, the background of the characters heavily reflects on their actions in the film. Factors including gender, race, and social class also influence their perspectives.
