For those of you who do not know today – May the Fourth – is a big deal for Star Wars fans. The topic this week for Think Write Thursday is to write a post about Star Wars.
I am a definite fan. Now I am not a devotee but I do love the movies. The original 1977 version is one of the first movies I remember seeing. At the time I did not really know how to read so I remember my mom reading the scrolling text at the start of the movie to me.
I also remember my sister covering my eyes at the scene in The Empire Strikes Back when Han cuts open the tauntaun and places Luke inside. I wanted my own ewok so bad and thought they were so cuddly. I remember having R2D2 and C3PO underwear. Darth Vader scared me to death.
I find it somewhat funny that I have such an affinity for these movies. I really do not like any other shows or movies of the sci-fi genre. I remember crying when my brother made me watch Battlestar Galactica or Star Trek back in the day (we only had one TV – gasp!). Maybe it is because I was so young when I saw them that it made an impression on me. I remember wanting to be Princess Leia and putting my hair in the buns like her.
I have not seen Rogue One yet. We do have the DVD and eventually I will watch it on our projection screen in the basement. I have tried to get Clark interested in them but it has not really worked so far. His father and I try not to be to disappointed.
