Henry Hammond: A Star Wars Story

The year was 1993. In the basement of my pal Scott’s house, a cluster of six year olds embraced the pandemonium while our parents partied upstairs.

Shiloh Kamrath: A Star Wars Story

I first saw star wars when I was 6 or 7, I really can’t remember when. It’s been such a long time….well maybe not that long, but let’s not gets hung up on that. I remember that me and my friends were trying to decide what to watch and one of them said we should watch star wars(a new hope). Now, I did not want to watch star wars. I mean, I straight up had fit; I was not watching star wars. Enter, my mom, and like most mothers, she knew best. She convinced me that I really should watch the movie. Now, I kind of think she regrets what she did, but too late now for that. Needless to say, I loved it. Lucky for me there were still star wars movies coming out at that point. First, I got the special edition box set of DVD’s for Christmas, and then I watched the prequels. However, over time I slowly got away from star wars. I wasn’t really aware that there was any star wars outside the movies, so there was nothing else out there for me, and as far as I was concerned star wars was doomed to the shelf as “just another good movie”.
