Okay, I have to be totally honest, I haven’t watched Star Wars since I was little. It’s funny, back in the day, I went through this short but intense phase of being obsessed with The Phantom Menace- which apparently isn’t even one of the good Star Wars films??? I was a child, I didn’t know any better. Yep! I was six years old, and I had the weirdest crush on bearded and robed Liam Neeson.
I am looking forward to the new film though. The release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is approaching fast! And maybe I’m not ‘gonna see it in the cinema on opening night’ excited about it. But you know, I will see it!
I get this weird sense of admiration when someone who grew up near to me makes it to ‘the big time’. John Boyega is around my age, and growing up, he must’ve lived no more than a ten minute walk from me. So now, and since Attack The Block, I get this second-hand.
