Elle (elleay) | 140 comments Okay, I am so far behind in watching the Star Wars films I'm probably not qualified for this challenge. The last SW franchise film I saw was Revenge of the Sith. Yeah, I know. My Star Wars membership is in jeopardy. But I remember waiting in line outside the local mall to see the first Star Wars film in 1977. Though I was very young, I am one of the originals, so no one's takin' my Star Wars membership card away from me! Since I'm not up on the latest characters' names and such, I'm goin' old school for this challenge. A classic.

Elle, I remember those days, too. The lines were so long it was ridiculous. That was when I fell in love with Han Solo (Harrison Ford). I wanted to be Princess Leia. The Force is the theme through out the films.


message 5: by Elle (new)

Elle (elleay) | 140 comments I figured The Force was alive and well even in the latest episodes. My mother's crush on Harrison Ford started with that movie and continues to this day. I wanted an R2D2 of my own. Still do.

That would've been a tough acronym! I was having a hard time with the "I" in Leia until I realized The Last Namsara series name was Iskari

Yep, BB-8 is a cutie for sure, but since I haven't watched any of the movies he's in, my emotions haven't been engaged. Even if I do watch the movies with BB-8 and start to care, R2D2 will always have a special place in my heart. You know, first love and all that.
