Born in 77, so naturally I wasn't around to see any of the originals in the cinema. My earliest memory was a few years later when I was just a kid and saw the intro for ANH on TV long after bedtime. Mom chased me to bed just as Darth Vader showed up, and I didn't get to see the complete movie until the early 90s. Still, that imagine, that music and that character left an impression on me I have to this day. Even now I remember the feeling of not knowing what to expect, and then being blown away. My neighbors had several of the toys, and I read a few of the comic books and loved all of it.

The only annoying this is a comic book spoiled the Darth Vader-mystery, which was a letdown when I saw the movies. Oh, and don't forget the games. My personal favorite is by far TIE Fighter, but many of them were awesome. It's a shame we haven't had a great SW-game in a long time, though. I thought KotOR was merely ok, and even Old Republic was a letdown. It's grown on me, but not so much I'm addicted yet. I'm working on that, though.

Born in 98. Parents told me they took me to see Episode I in theatres when I was 1. My first words were Star Wars. I saw all the OT by the time I was 5. Saw Episode II twice in theatres, and Episode III three times. I have all the special editions, plus all of the original theatrical realeases of the Original Triology.

OT OG here. Saw it as a kid, and have been a Star Wars fan ever since. My dad explained Han shooting Greedo as "proactive self-defense" after the movie was over. lol

I was born in 1987, and my mom saw it when it came out. My mom has been a sci-fi fan for a long time and raised me on Star Trek. As a girl growing up in the 90s, I didn't get to see very many strong women in movies for kids, so my mom felt it was really important for me to see Star Wars because Princess Leia was a wise and strong woman. She also felt like it was one of the greatest stories of cinema and wanted me to see it. So when I was 11 and it came back to theatres she took me to see it. I didn't really get heavily into it but I loved the movie and Leia did stick with me as an example of a female character I wanted to be like.

As a kid in the 90s, I became a fan a few years before the special editions came out. It was freaking awesome to see Star Wars on the big screen.

I am a prequels generation fan. I remember watching Episode II, I would stand up on the couches to imitate the Clone Troopers swooping in to beat the CIS.

Born in '78. Didn't get to see the first one in the theaters, of course, but saw the rest. Had the old-school star wars toys. I miss those days.
