Star Wars Sentiment Analysis

In this visualization I pulled dialogue data from Star Wars Episode I: New Hope and analyzed the sentiment over the course of the film. I also plotted the characters and locations relative to those sentiments. The primary visualization is a radial plot.


  1. How did you calculate the sentiment score? Interesting plot

    1. Thank you Arthur. The sentiment score is based on the dialogue which I mapped to scenes, location and character. The score itself was calculated using the sentiment package in R which identifies key negative and positive terms in the text based on a sentiment dictionary.
