Femnista Nov/Dec 2016: Star Wars


How old were you when you first met Luke Skywalker? Han Solo? Princess Leia? The doids? Did it shape your childhood, adulthood, or teen years? Were you front row center at the first screening or a latecomer? Did you start watching with the prequels or sequel? Does it matter? You kept coming back for more, because George Lucas created an incredible galaxy full of unforgettable characters, that is still as stirring today as it was in the 70’s!

  1. Really looking forward to reading this issue! Star Wars was the starting point for my life-long science fiction obsession. When I first saw Star Wars on my parent’s VHS set, my sister and I were young enough that our dad read the alien language subtitles for us aloud. I still hear his voice in my head when watching the original trilogy.
