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.

    3. That was my question too!... never thought sentiment could be visualized in numbers and charts. That pops another question, what chart type is this? is this all done with Tableau alone?
