I love Star Wars for many reasons. I was but a very small youngling when my father took me and my mother to see it. There were many young couples with babies there and I was the quietest one in attendance, EXCEPT for when Darth Vader first appeared.
My Mother still to this day swears that I "Cackled with Glee" when the Dark Lord Took center Screen!
I've been a Star Wars Fan almost since BIRTH, and it holds a magic for me that will ALWAYS endure. I love Lightsabers, X-Wings, and of Course that bucket of bolts owned by a scruffy looking nerf herder, known as the Falcon.
One thing I found as I grew Older, was that I had an affinity for Japanese Culture, and storytelling, not surprising since George Lucas used a LOT of Japanese cinema and cultural influence in his Space Opera known as Star Wars. As an adult, I appreciate the subtle nuances that set the atmosphere for the saga, and one thing that stands out to me is that EVERYONE in the Star Wars Universe Has a NAME. That shows that George Lucas allowed creativity in his art department to shine through. It gives every character a backstory, and a history to bring them to life.
George Has many ties to some of my favorite creative minds in Hollywood; Spielberg, Frank Oz, The Late Great Jim Henson and his legacy.
Not only has created an "Empire" (pun intended) from an Idea scribbled on varies notebooks throughout the 60's and 70's, but he has created a universal entity that fans the world over share and love...
Thank you George! No matter what people say about you, good or bad, I want to personally thank you one day, because my childhood would have been REALLY boring without your Movies!
So Basically, I love Star Wars, because it is a FAMILY the world over. It is NEVER going to be forgotten, and has become such a pop culture Icon that it has cemented itself into the pages of our history books forever.
Without Star Wars, NONE of us would be on this forum speaking of Lightsabers, and typing a reply to a topic for a Spin Video raflle!
