Firstly, I know we are all fed up with hearing about Star Wars… even I am and I never thought I would ever feel that way.
For May The Fourth, I made a video about how I grew up with Star Wars, from seeing it in a homemade cinema at about 5 years old, up to going to the UK premiere of Revenge of the Sith in London in 2005 (that’s me below). I only got as far as ROTS and you can see the video here.
It’s taken me a while, but I’ve now made part two of my journey, but this time, with Disney involved. I had a range of emotions when I heard that Disney was taking over Star Wars, from joy, to nervous, to a little disappointed. Over the course of the three movies, Episodes 7, 8 and 9… my disappointment grew.
In this new video, I haven’t gone into great detail about the movies, but I have said about how I feel about them, some of the things that annoyed me about them. Watch My Journey With Star Wars – Part 2 – The Empire Strikes Back.
