Can you remember who introduced you to Star Wars?

There is a divide in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household between those who love everything about Star Wars and those who have yet to watch it.  Currently, Piglet and I are in the minority as we are the only ones not to have seen any of the films or TV series.  I have at least enjoyed some of the books with the children.  However, it is Mr. Boo’s love of Star Wars that has been passed down to Roo and Tigger.  

Can you remember who introduced you to Star Wars?

Whilst Mr. Boo has always been a fan of Star Wars it was his love of LEGO Star Wars that drew the children in.  Asking Daddy questions about the characters and ships that he was building that lead to watching their first Star Wars film.  From that first film, they have gone on to enjoy each new film and can tell me exactly what order they are despite not being released in number order (why is that? all too confusing for me). 

During a trip to Disneyland Paris, this year is when the Star Wars franchise really hit home for Tigger.  Watching one of the live shows Chewbacca walked right passed him in the crowd and oh his face was an absolute picture.  He was completely made up and ever since has been making time to enjoy all things Star Wars.  From the films and Star Wars Rebels series, his Yoda plus and mini lightsaber (he has the green lightsaber on his wish list) and the novels that co-inside with the franchise.

This year sees Star Wars celebrating their 40th Anniversary and I always wonder that when a franchise meets a milestone like that if they ever thought it would have still been going strong all those years later.  Mr.  Boo has loved the films since his childhood, watching them with is Grandad and is something he has passed on to his children.  I wonder whether my children will be passing this down to their own children one day?
