Happy Birthday (And Thank You) George Lucas



When I was seven years old my uncle took my cousin and I to see "Return Of The Jedi." I hadn't seen the previous two films but through the toys and the tales my cousins and friends had told me I felt like I already knew the story. And indeed I did. This one film literally changed my life. When I see the film today I can still remember that seven year old sitting in the theater. When Emperor Palpatine attacked Luke Skywalker ("now Young Skywalker...you will die") and Luke shrieked in pain as his father Darth Vader looked on I can actually see my seven year old eyes widening. When Vader ultimately threw the Emperor over to save his son I cheered. As an older man now I tear up when I see the same sequence. It's the reason I make my own movies today. Movies are magic, and The Star Wars Trilogy is one of the most magical cinematic experiences of all. I may soon feel fatigue like the rest with a 'one-movie-a-year' plan that Disney has now, but I will NEVER fall out of love with it. And the genius who brought this to life is George Lucas. Happy birthday and thank you from a grateful fan.
