In 1980, in a garage converted into a cinema at the bottom of a garden in Plymouth, was a 5 year lad, watching a cut down version of the attack on the Death Star from Star Wars : A New Hope. His mouth was open in awe and his eyes were wide, as he watched the X-Wings make the final run down the trench towards the exhaust port.
As I have had said, it’s one of my first ever memories. Star Wars has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. In 1999, George Lucas was going to release The Phantom Menace…I was so excited, more new SW movies!!! Then Disney took over and they announced Episodes 7, 8 and 9!!!
In 30 days from today, Star Wars : Episode 8 : The Last Jedi will be in the cinemas. I’m not going to the midnight showing, coz I know I’ll be too tired to enjoy it, but I will be there, first thing, on the Thursday morning to see it! I’m more than a little excited.
I’m doing a Countdown to TLJ, with some photos, all taken by me, of sexy Jedi, Steve & Tommy (the naughty Storm Troopers) and some other pics of Star Wars throughout my life. It’s just a bit of fun, so I hope it makes you smile. And, if you’re a nerd like me, it will build to the excitement of The Last Jedi!
May the Force be with you, always!
