Happy Birthday Star Wars!

It is hard to believe, but “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” opened in theaters on May 25, 1977- 39 years ago today!

I was only a baby when the inaugural Star Wars movie was in theaters, but who would’ve thought on that day 39 years ago that the movie would turn into one of the largest franchises in history and would shape pop cultures for four decades, and counting.

To celebrate this anniversary, check out this amazing website/infographic from illustrator Martin Panchaud. It is  a 4,845 inch long graphic that tells the story of “A New Hope” in a very interesting and creative way.

Happy Birthday Star Wars!

I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times.I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets.
