My husband remembers seeing this in the theaters, and I wish I could claim the same bragging rights, but alas I was too small.  However, I’ve been a lifelong fan of Star Wars and count it as probably the first movie to solidify my status as a true geek girl!  I can’t wait to see what J. J. Abrams does with this franchise. All Star Wars, all the time.
