In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#28: Seeing The Phantom Menace
First off, let me say it is now less than a month away from The Force Awakens! It’s kinda hard to believe. It takes me back to waiting and burning to see The Phantom Menace. I was living back east at the time and traveled into New York City to see it with my brother and a friend. I was bouncing off the walls excited. The day before was agony (not really, because I was in New York with PLENTY to do, but you get the idea). We waited in line for a couple of hours before and time seemed to slow down. Midnight couldn’t come fast enough! But it was that buzz… that feeling of seeing new Star Wars for the first time in years. To be with friends and family, to share that experience. I know, it sounds corny, but you also know what I am talking about. When that crawl hit the screen with the John Williams music, it was magic. Something I will get to revisit in less than a month.
