Today is May 4th.
Last year at this time, there was a buzz in the air. We were anxiously waiting for Episode 7.
Considering the buzz kill that Episodes 1-3 were, many fans, myself included were naturally concerned. Episode 7 could rejuvenate the narrative and the fandom. Or it could just another overblown, special effects driven, short on plot and character science fiction film.
Last December our patience was rewarded. Episode 7 was everything that 4-6 were and much more. We were excited to meet the new characters and reunite with the old characters we’ve respected and adored for years.
To my fellow fans, I say may the fourth be with you. We will meet again in December for Rogue One.
