The first movie I remember seeing in a theatre was Star Wars. I most likely saw some cartoony matinee thing before that, but first memory is going to see Star Wars in 1977. I was 7 years old.
Now, more than 35 years later, my two sons are just as big a fan as I ever was. Not yet 6, Zacharie has a bedroom with Star Wars logo in it, Charlie brushes his teeth under the watchful eye of Yoda and the movies will be watched around campfires this summer.
It truly has become a part not of popular culture, but of culture. Star Wars is one of the commonalities that bind us.
As you can expect, I’ve written a few posts about Star Wars, so today, for Star Wars Day, click through and May the 4th Be With You.
