There is an implied "and" here. Results will have both words somewhere in them.

star or wars

This will broaden the search to include results that contain any of the words.

star -wars

To search for things containing "star" but not "wars" you can put a - before the word you want to exclude.

"star wars"

Results will have exactly that phrase in them.
