    Hello, everyone! I'm from San Diego, California, just a couple hours from Hollywood and the studios where Star Wars movies are made. I don't own any of the merchandise from this franchise, outside of the movies.

    I haven't watched any of what isn't a movie relating to this saga. I'm barely aware of the cocaine-fueled Holiday Special from the seventies. I've only seen brief clips of various cartoons and whatnot. Fot me, the movies are kind of what it's all about. I hope to get to talk to all of you about them!!

    Ken

    Another me! Yay!

    (I too only care for the films...well, and now the Mandolorian because, hot ####! Good stuff!)

    Welcome aboard - there's plenty of film discussion. I tend to geek out on the films as a craft more than the in-world theorizing, but you'll find lots of stuff.

    Tip: learn how to profile browse users. If you see a post you like, chances are good that if you look at their profile, it'll lead you to more threads and posts through their activity records. This forum really rewards paying attention to users and interacting with them on their profiles.

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    My apologies, I was supposed to introduce myself here. But I got excited when I saw Mandalorian discussions. Soooo...
    I'm "the dinh" a nickname from my favorite series of books.
    From the Tampa, FL area. Work in a Construction Materials Test Lab(which is very boring), do a lot of traveling for my work. Married with 2 kids. There are very few Star Wars books that I have not read, mostly those would consist of the newer books. Haven't read many comics. Have seen all the movies. Watched the Clone Wars in it's entirety and Rebels in it's entirety. Love Star Wars, wish I was born a wookie. Look forward to the discussions!

    Hey - long time star wars fan! Can't wait to jump in and discuss the movies. I'm one of the few people who love the prequels just as much as the OT. I'm also in denial about the existence of the sequels.
