The late 1990s is the golden age for a certain generation of Star Wars fans – specifically those of us who first saw the trilogy on the big screen with the 1997 Special Editions. We were there for the birth of the EU and the succession of quality LucasArts videogame releases that followed, and witnessed first-hand as the phenomenon ratcheted up a gear in the run up to the release of Episode 1.
There was never a more exciting time to be a fan of that galaxy far, far away…
Hi, my name is Joe and I’m a Star Wars fan from the UK (and I got no love for the Empire, I can tell you that). The work of George Lucas has inspired my life in countless ways, and I am eternally grateful for the worlds and possibilities that he envisaged. Before Rogue One I was wary of Disney’s stewardship of the franchise, but now I’m starting to feel a little more optimistic.
