    To be honest I have barely any memories of seeing Star Wars in the cinema, although I was there. The queue however I can't forget, and was like no queue I had ever seen before. But I think my memory of that experience became clouded by the rest of the phenomenon after that. For me, the story lived on in the story book I got bought, through the toys and, of course, the repeated viewings on video (recorded off the first TV broadcast).

    I wonder if that's why so many people have a problem with the new sequels. They're not sequels to those three films from the 70s and 80s. They're sequels to a cultural phenomenon. There's no way they could live up to that.

    Hello, fellow Star Wars fans. I'm pretty new around the neighbourhood.
    I was born in '81, so I grew up with the OT.

    Every morning, from when I was around four, I dragged a chair up to the TV and watched a copy of A New Hope, I put the chair on a cushion and: voilá I was shooting tie fighers in the falcon along to the movie.

    Anyway, I'm a lifelong fan and love the movies. Yes, even the prequels! Still trying to wrap my head and heart around TLJ. I hope it's gonna grow with me. Maybe it will even be elevated after EPIX.

    Peace!

    Welcome aboard, @Han Salsiccia! Thanks for joining us.

    You'll find that many of us did the same thing in our childhoods, and maybe still do that when we plug in a film, haha.

    Feel free to let anyone with a Staff or Moderator banner know if you have any questions or concerns. We'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Hello There!

    Introductions... Hmm. Well, as with most of you, lifelong Star Wars fan. Grew up with the original trilogy, saw the Prequels in Theatre, and have yet to be disappointed with any of it. Well, except Attack of the Clones.... That was a disappointment, but still good! Just, you know, not great!

    I'm still on the fence, after all these years, so I'm not actually sure if I'm Imperial, Rebel, Separatist, or First Order. I didn't even know about most of the EU until I read the Thrawn Trilogy in the late '00s. It'll probably take me a while, but I'll catch up, I'm sure. I've been |----| this close to starting on a Cosplay for a couple years now. One day. I love Phasma's armour, and love the story behind it even more!

    Any questions, ask away!

    Hi,
    I'm Thomas from Munich and I discovered the Star Wars Movies when I was in hospital. Back then I binge watched all the movies and I'm looking forward to the conversations here. :)
