OK, it’s official. I did it. I can no longer claim NOT to be a Star Wars nerd. Getting on the news in jedi outfit didn’t count, having a literal Star Wars museum in my basement didn’t count, going to the premeir of EP2 didn’t count…. but registering for Celebration III made it official. I am proud not to be a ‘trekkie’ but I am a big fan of Star Wars. To me Star Trek and Star Wars are very different, I mean, everyone knows that Star Trek is make believe! I’ve never been to one of these sci-fi events before, but I decided to attend this last one, since this will be the last SW Convention, at least the last one that really matters. Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw when I was seven years old – I’ll never forget that opening scene – it blew me away! I’d never even seen a movie, and what a movie to be my first. So in many ways, this final SW installment is the conclusion of a life-long story I’ve been following. Come Jesus, Come, but after May 19th, please! It’s only 78 days away!
Actually, the real reason I am going is that attendees will get a FREE talking Darth Vader action figure! I just CAN’T live without that! That’s worth registration, travel, and lodging!
Also, you may be interested in this spoof EP3 trailer. The original you can surf the web for, I edited a lot of the bad language and crude humor out of this, but what remains is still pretty funny and worth a good laugh. Star Wars Episode III: A Lost Hope Enjoy!
