Star Wars Day

Posted by Brittany

They just look so out of place among the unapologetically 1970s film style. One of the great things about Star Wars is that it’s campy without even knowing it, and I feel like the juxtaposition of the advanced CGI against the original film almost turns it into a mockery. The second thing that keeps making me laugh is how young all of the actors are! As a kid I watched Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher and I thought they were these great big grown-ups. Now, as I’m watching they look like kids to me — Harrison Ford would have been about my age during the filming of Episode IV, but Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were years younger!

It’s getting late, but I’m going to call on ‘The Force’ to keep me awake through the rest of this before it’s time to turn to ‘the Dark Side.’ We hope you got in touch with your inner Jedi today, but if you’re still learning to use The Force don’t worry — George Lucas’s birthday is in ten days so there will surely be another Star Wars celebration happening somewhere in the galaxy.

Tomorrow is Totally Chipotle Day — just in time for Cinco de Mayo!
