Joey Deez Blog "40th Anniversary"

May 25, 2017

 

If you woke up today with a little bit of extra energy you must be one with the force because this is no ordinary Thursday. 40 years ago today one of the greatest films franchises of all time debuted is sci-fi fantasy greatness inspiring many generations to dream of a being Jedi. Hard to believe that 4 decades ago people everywhere gathered to enjoy Star Wars, probably thinking that it was just a geeky fad that would blow by over time; boy were they wrong. Now one of the biggest names in movie history, we are still getting new films that destroy the box office every year.

 

I remember as kid growing up with the first three films and loving every moment, even the scenes with Jar Jar Binks. BJ loved the originals, so of course I watched those with him and they did not disappoint. Now we both get to revisit our childhood with the new Star Wars movies that are coming out and I think I can speak for both of us when I say, we’re freaking loving it. If I had to pick a favorite from the series it would have to be the 6th movie, Return of the Jedi. I love wrapping up story lines with a bang and they certainly did that. We’ll just ignore the part with the fuzzy little bears, even if I did think they were pretty awesome when I was a kid. What about you Rock-A-Holics……
