So, not to cause an alarm, but before a couple of months ago, I had never seen a Star Wars film. I understood what it was all about. I understood some of the more common culture about it, but never have I ever seen a show, or movie. Makes watching some of the Robot Chicken episodes kind of hard to grasp at times. When I was younger, I thought that Darth Maul was Darth Vader without his suit on. That was when I was like five or so years old. I know they aren’t the same people now, don’t yell at me Ha-Ha!
So shortly after meeting my fiancé, he introduced to idea of me watching all things that had to deal with S.W. I, of course knew somewhat how much that would be, was not really wanting to start this little endeavor. Did you know, before the Solo movie that just came out, that it was roughly 92 hours of footage I would have to watch? He wore me down, of course, and we stated to watch everything in chronological order. That’s right! I didn’t know that it was out of order as much as it was!
Why did George Lucas start with Episode IV-VI and then go back? Was it to make it more interesting? I don’t know, but it caught to eyes of a bunch of people. It was the first of its kind.
Did you know that Star Wars was a German musical on T.V., also casting Mark Hamill as Luke and Darth Vader playing the trumpet? Neither did I. Came as a surprise to my fiancé too!
