It doesn’t seem to matter that 30 + years has gone by since the beginning of the Star Wars epidemic! It doesn’t seem to matter that the little boys, that were so taken with the likes of R2D2 and C3PO, Luke Skywaker and all the rest of the crew, first catapulted onto the Silver Screen are now in their 30s and 40s.
By Christmas of this year, there will be a whole new generation of kids, who love Star Wars and won’t be able to get enough of the magical science fiction characters, who after all these millenniums are still fighting so that good wins over bad!
There is just so much action happening that our eyes and our minds are inundated with images and we can forget what is real, what could be real, and what is fantasy. I guess that’s part of what makes the whole Star Wars experience what it is. We can and do allow ourselves to be taken away and experience the Force in all it’s fantasy. We can even continue to enjoy our break from reality with all the “Star Wars” stuff that brings back the memories made for us during the story that is unfolding before our eyes.
For me and my “kids” that’s what we call getting a big bang for our buck. And even though Star Wars is a Fantasy Story, it is also an Epic Story. Who doesn’t like it when the good guys, outnumbered by the thousands, still manages to survive and even thrive. Everyone loves rooting for these underdogs.
Can you just imagine the delight on your children’s faces when their Advent Calendar is unfolding to be a scene from one of the Star Wars Movies.
With the new technology out there, there is a quad Remote Control Millenium Falcon, and I’m sure every big boy is going to want one of those….
I know my two boys (40 & 35) and their father, will be fighting to get their hands on one of these ! There isn’t a man around who wouldn’t enjoy flying that baby. Or you could give it to the little boys, so that the father’s can take it outdoors to show them how to use it….
I already know that my younger son has his eyes set on the Titanium Series of Vehicles. They will be sitting on his desk at work so that when he gets stressed out, he can pretend to blast whatever is bugging him! After a few sound effects in his mind, I’m sure he will smile and get on with
whatever needs to be taken care of.
For those boys in the younger years, there will be Lego sets, to build several of the Star Wars Space Ships! They have a great Imperial Destroyer that just looks like a blast to put together.
