Why Star Wars Rocks my Geek Family

Sharing is caring!

The official announcement of the Star Wars VII cast rocked this obsessed Star Wars Family

My family has been huge Star Wars fans for as long as I can remember. By family, I’m including the beginning of our love which was created by my Dad, and our constant obsession of Sci-Fi movies, shows, and even comic books. With the announcement of the official cast of Star Wars: Episode VII, I squeed and snorted with glee this morning. I have thing for Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca!) so seeing his name listed, officially, made me proceed into a light faint whilst sitting in my desk chair. Then, I saw it. The three names I had been wait on. The intergalactic trio, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. They will all be back for the next part of the saga. Let the nerds rejoice!

The announcement of new actors was equally exciting, since new faces really are needed for a new trilogy. But, you just have to love that the creators, producers and director (shout out to the homey J.J. Abrams) are intelligent enough to know that true fans will need more than a nod to the original cast. We need to see them, on the big screen, continuing the story.

As a mom who’s encouraging the Star Wars love that my children now have, we will all enjoy that first time we see Star Wars: Episode VII on theaters. We’ll also enjoy the second, third and fourth time as well. Veteran fans and new fans sharing their intense appreciation for one of the best movie sagas of all time.  Now, the real question is: how am I going to get my family of (almost) 5 to the premiere? I mean, we HAVE TO go now, don’t we? I mean, it’s Star Wars. Star Wars rocks!

    Um, how did I not even know they were making another movie? My boys haven’t even said a thing…. which makes me wonder if they even know. This is awesome! Especially who’s going to be playing in the movie! We will definitely be haunting our local theater when this comes out. A Star Wars marathon may be in order too.

      Whoop! We got the Star Wars Mickey Ears from Disney World. It’s one of our favorite hats in the house.

    That hat is so cool!

    I’m glad you get to enjoy the new one at the theatre as a family. I bet that will be awesome! You’ll have so much to talk about

    I ‘m not a fan because I just don’t know about it, being an island girl and all that, but I’ve heard quite the lot about the show 🙂

      You’ll have to sit down and watch it. If you have cable, they will be on TV this weekend for May the 4th (it’s an unofficial Star Wars Holiday).
