Re: How Old Were You When You First Saw the Star Wars Movies?

i went to see the first movie at the cinema.it was one of the high points of my life and i was in high school.i can never forget that golden 1970a star wars summer.i did not think about anything exept star wars for months.it made life in a dull north london suburb and a red brick school full of people i did not like ,bearable.

SF is what life is all about.

Re: How Old Were You When You First Saw the Star Wars Movies?

I thought I'd answered this one, but apparently not. I think I actually saw ROTJ first. I was about five, maybe younger. I loved the Ewoks. Probably saw the other films first but I can't remember.

Mind you when I did see them all I thought it so unfair that Luke didn't get the girl. But it would have been gross since she was his sister. tongue

Re: How Old Were You When You First Saw the Star Wars Movies?

I was about 4 years old when STAR WARS came to the theaters in the small town in Iowa where I grew up.
I can still remember the impression the Lightsaber left on my young and very impressionable imagination. My family tried in vain to convince me that they weren't real, but to this day I still bear a grudge against Santa Claus for bringing me fake-ass TOY Lightsabers instead of the real thing as I demanded.
I made my father take me to see it. I made my mother take me. I made my grandparents take me. I went with cousins, and I went with friends. Later that year I started Kindergarten and it's all we talked about.
I know for a fact that from "EMPIRE STRIKES BACK" to "REVENGE OF THE SITH" I was at a theater on opening night.
One of the aforementioned cousins I grew up watching them with later attended M.I.T. and is now a resident chemist for Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. He is working hard to come up with a working real-life Lightsaber... at least, that's what he tells me.

I'm 30 now,lol.

I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe.

Re: How Old Were You When You First Saw the Star Wars Movies?

The first time I was introduced to a SW movie was when I was when I was five or six. Or maybe seven. I only saw from Dagobah on, but I decided that it was my favorite movie. (That lasted all of one month!) The first time I really saw SW was Valentine's Night in 2001. My Dad created a monster! smile big_smile  And wasn't my mom happy about that!!

3 years old and I saw it on the tv. My family is a Star Wars family, and I get into arguements with them because they don't like Boba. sad

Re: How Old Were You When You First Saw the Star Wars Movies?

I saw ANH when I was 5 I think.  dad's a SW geek like me, and he likes Fett too.  I couldn't convince him to join the boards though.....

I was 2.  In fact, my very first memory is of the line of X-wings locking their S-foils.

ANH when I was like 6 or 7.  My first memory was Chewie.

I too saw the special edition ANH when it came to theaters. My dad started me on Star Wars with that movie even though I don't remember it at all, guess something as good as SW just sticks to ya whether you remember it or not
