I grew up with Star Wars. It was as a huge part of my childhood development. I am 31 years old, Episode IV is older than I am. I never had a chance to see the original trilogy in the theaters. My first memories of Star Wars came from watching The Empire Strikes Back on an old VHS tape, recorded off of television. It wasn’t until we received a collector’s edition VHS set for Christmas that I experienced a Star Wars movie without the bits of commercials. Regardless, these stories are so powerful that, for me, three decades have passed and the films are still exciting and have progressed from simply a piece of pop culture to a modern day mythology.
