Today The Hubs aka Tyler is filling in with a post about his childhood Star Wars memories and some new games from Hasbro tied to The Force Awakens which comes out next month. Take it away Tyler…..
There’s a new Star Wars movie coming out…
Hello? How could anyone NOT know at this point! It has to be the most anticipated movie release EVER. My own kidlets certainly are buzzed about seeing it – our tickets are already in hand. We’re going with our extended family (Nana, aunt & uncle) the day after Christmas and even seeing it in IMAX 3D!
Until then, it’s going to be a LONG 6 weeks in our house!
I remember back when the first movie came out in 1977 — Episode 4, although it wasn’t called that back then — and it was playing four times a day at the movie theater in my hometown in Colorado. My friend Kevin and I would spend all weekend at the theater watching it, racking up views in a kind of strange childhood competition. I think we must have seen Star Wars over 100 times by the end of its first run!
