Counting down the 229 days until The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
In the days leading up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, And There Came A Day will present links, images, videos, art, memories, laughs, theories and thoughts leading up to the big day… which happens to be on my birthday! ENJOY and may the Force be with you, always… or at least until 12.18.15!
“I’VE GOT TO GO TO THEM”
Luke Skywalker, when speaking of his vision of his friends Princess Leia and Han Solo in grave danger, said “I’ve got to go to them.” And he did. And we all know how that worked out: fighting Vader, losing his hand, “Ben, why didn’t you tell me” – ing. Yeah, not great.
What will be great, and what many of us may have to go to is AMC Theaters six movie marathon of the original Star Wars films leading up to The Force Awakens. Likely to be held on December 17 or 18, this marathon will feature all six Star Wars movies – likely including the updated and edited versions of the original trilogy – and will be screened Avengers-style at participating AMC theaters.
While my own re-watching (and retro reviewing) of the Star Wars movies will begin next month, it will be hard to resist this marathon come December. Very hard indeed.
