"Did you see the new episode?!"
"I can't believe that Mando --"
"I watched A New Hope for the first time!"
Star Wars has been an essential part of my life for well, as long as I can remember. I grew up watching reruns of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi on TV with my dad. Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, lightsaber, Jedi, and Star Wars were common names in our household. I remember seeing Revenge of the Sith with my dad in theaters as a new 11 year old, sobbing during the Battle of Mustafar. When Episodes 7-9, Rouge One, and Solo came out, I was right back in the theater with my dad on opening night, watching wide eyed.
