Today is Star Wars Day, why today you ask, well look at the title and think about today’s date. “May the fourth be with you”. It was not until my son told me this morning that I had any idea there was a Star Wars Day. I remember going to see the very first Star Wars movie which I guess is now considered episode 4? I have no idea. Beyond the original three I have not seen very much of the others. As a kid I really liked the first one and at the time it was considered cutting edge special effects, but looking at it today and with all of the computer special effects I can see how dated it is. I enjoyed the movies as a kid but I never became a Star Wars geek, and like I said I don’t think I have seen all of the other movies outside of the original three. I didn’t have a bunch of Star Wars toys, heck I can’t even remember having anything Star Wars related not even a poster.
Disney has bought the rights to the franchise and is reportedly working on a new Star Wars movie. I know a lot of people are excited about it, me like most movies, I will probably just wait until it goes to Redbox to watch it. Anyway happy Star Wars Day and “may the force be with you”
