On May 25, 1977, Star Wars arrived.

I could wax nostalgic and tell you what that did to my seven-year-old imagination, how it changed my life, how it encouraged me to envision “a larger world” … but I’ve told that story in Through a Screen Darkly.

I’d like to know your Star Wars story.

  • Where did you first see it?
  • With whom?
  • How old were you (if you’re willing to share)?
  • What was your first impression?
  • How has your impression changed?
  • Did the movie have any kind of influence on your life and imagination?
  • Do you resent anything about it?
  • Did it do more harm than good to movie history?

And then, of course… the important questions:

  • Who’s your favorite character?
  • What’s your favorite line?
  • Visually, what’s your favorite moment?
  • Did you buy Star Wars toys? If so, which was your favorite?
  • Do you still have them?

And finally, the most important question in the Star Wars universe:

  • Which film is the best, and which is the worst, in the six-film franchise?
