Stars Wars is just one work in a long line of science fiction literature that began with Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, among others. As long as science fiction remains relevant, Star Wars and everything that came before and after it will remain relevant if only because future science fiction works will have been built upon them. If Star Wars is given a place alongside stories like "The War of the Worlds" and "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea," then I'm sure it will still be around a century later just like those works are still around today. Modern fantasy literature began with Arthurian legends hundreds of years ago and those exact same legends are still being told today.
