I grew up with Star Wars. I specifically remember playing with my Death Star base with Luke, Leah, Han Solo, C3PO, R2D2, Darth Vader, and a Stormtrooper or two. It had the trash compactor filled with sponge-like trash – it was so cool. I think my best friend at that time had an actual Millennium Falcon – now THAT was cool!
So you’ll understand why I set my DVR to record last weekend’s “Star Wars: the Legacy Revealed” on the History Channel. Just got a chance to watch it today and I was not dissapointed (although it was weird seeing Dan Wrather talking about the Force).
All in all, a very interesting show. It really pulled to light the amazing storytelling by Lucas comparing the movie and its characters to historical stories & myths, biblical stories, archetypes, governments, wars, etc. Pretty interesting stuff. If you are either a Star Wars or History fan, I highly recommend it.
