Back in the summer 2005, I put up a tent in front of the Edwards Mira Mesa theater in San Diego to camp out for Revenge of the Sith for about a week. This was for a couple of reasons. For one, it was going to be the final Star Wars movie. As someone who literally grew up with Star Wars and had made the Skywalker Ranch pilgrimage, camping out in front of a theater for a week was the perfect way for... more.

Recently, LOST's David Lindelof told Rolling Stone that Episode VII would be the biggest event movie in modern cinema history, with the hype being twice what we saw with Episode I.

3 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on November 3, 2012 under Featured, Lists, Star Wars
When it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilm, the immediate overreaction and spamming of the Internet with angry and snarky comments was honestly baffling to me.
