Or should it be: A LONG LONG TIME AGO, IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY...?
Star Wars was released on May 25, 1977.
Happy 30th Birthday.
Other than a weird US Postal Service tie-in and an airing on CineMax tonight, this day shall pass with little fan fare.
Is it a Jedi mind trick? Or is everyone in denial about this. The fact that Star Wars is freaking 30 years old makes me feel old.
To put this into some context, the time between Sgt Pepper and STAR WARS is 10 years. It was 30 years between 1947 Best Picture GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT and STAR WARS.
