Jim Carrey thinks no one "can" top the original 'Star Wars' movies.

The 60-year-old actor admitted that George Lucas' space franchise, which started with an original trilogy in 1977 and has since spawned both a prequel and sequel trilogy and a multitude of television series, has become "great stuff". is, but nothing would come close to the early blockbusters.

Speaking to 'Collider', Carrey said: "You can't do better than that. That's why you can do other great Star Wars things. Because it's just so amazing, you know, it's one amazing source of material and ideas. But that first series of films was a mythology, as [author] Joseph Campbell said, that was a perfect mythology." The 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2' actor also claimed that his favorite film in the franchise is 'The Empire Strikes Back', the second film to be released. "'The Empire Strikes Back' has a special meaning to me because there was a time when I think I was about 14 or 15.

When that came out I got the John Williams soundtrack and I listened to it on my headphones. While I was reading late at night, I was reading Stephen King novels. And I was mixing media, I was going to read 'Salem's Lot' with the soundtrack to 'The Empire Strikes Back'. And so it has it all those wild memory connotations, to me that's wonderful," the star recalled.
