    Something I've been thinking lately has to do with colors and how they relate to the latest movies. At the time of the classic trilogy, and even today, whenever I think of ANH the yellow comes to my mind. When I think of TESB is the white, and when I think of ROTJ, is the green color. Something obvious because most of these films are set on planets with a visual that the predominance is one of these colors. The same thing now comes with the new movies and it seemed interesting to me how JJ, RJ, the writers and Lucasfilm used it intelligently trying to match each movie with each color. This is apparent and it was premeditated since the beginning with the teaser posters of each movie already suggesting the predominant color in each movie. And every color has a meaning or multiple meanings.

    Starting with TFA we have the color yellow (and a lot of orange) which in different or most cultures represents optimism, happiness, brilliance, lightness and hope. Synonymous with the forthcoming new force that alludes directly to Rey (Ray - Sun - Yellow / orange).

    In TLJ the predominance of the photography is the color red that alludes to blood, danger, power, passion and desire for example. And I think these colors fit perfectly with character of Kylo. The wound on his face is still open, unhealed, as are the cracks in Crait's soil. His biggest threat is still Snoke, who inhabits an entirely red room.

    And for the Last the color blue for TROS. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. This color I have more problem to correlate with one character, but if I try to guess is about Rey too. Exegol and Palpatine are pure blue here and in Rey's veins flows the Palpatine blood. Good allusion.

    I would like to know if you guys, like me, always tought in a special color when you think in one of the SW movies.
    Strangely this association doesn't work with the prequels to me. And I wonder why?
    Its also interesting to know what else you can add in my statement about the colors movies relation.

    I definitely associate TLJ with Red (It is still the best SW poster since the OT posters) as Crait always comes to mind. I definitely associate TROS with blue as that battle between Rey & Kylo on the Death Star and the waves crashing in. TFA and yellow are more about the beginning with Rey and Jakku for me.

    Color has always been important Star Wars. It's not just the ST. The light side tends to wear bright color clothing. Leia, Padme and Rey have worn white in their perspective trilogies. Anakin wore black in Clones and Sith; he wore white in TPM as a sign of innocence because he was a child. Han wore a mixture of black and white with his jacket. To signify, that you know he is a smuggler and a scoundrel while having a heart of gold.

    You'll notice that at the end Empire and the beginning ofROTJ he is wearing pure white because he is innocent. He is also reborn a new man so to speak in ROTJ. It's interesting that Luke's final hero outfit is full black. Considering how the bad guys in the saga have worn black. I guess to tell the audience he could go to the dark in ROTJ? A cheap misdirection? I think ANH is purple because of Princess Leia being the focal point and purple means royality.

    This is how I see. The dark outfit of Luke in ROTJ is a hint that maybe Luke can go to the dark side, that being son of Vader maybe there's something evil inside him. But later on in the movie one part of his outfit show us the color white, demonstrating that Luke is good at heart, at the inside.
