Can you believe it’s been 30 years since we first heard, “Luke, I am your father.” Where were you when you met Yoda and Boba Fett for the first time? Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is entering middle age and it makes me feel old. Of course, I am old. Moving on…
CNN wants to hear your fond memories of the flick:
iReport and Geek Out! want to know what you remember about seeing this movie for the first time. How much did you anticipate it beforehand, and how has it affected you since? Did it lead to any traditions with friends and family? Have you passed it on to younger generations? Did you see it in the theater in 1980? If so, share photos from the era. Did your “Star Wars” collection begin in earnest at this time? Post your photo of you with your memorabilia from back then.
I’ve been having a great time browsing through the collections some of the “iReporters” are showing off. Check them out, and tell your own story here. Of course, we’d love to see your stuff too, so why not make it a twofer and fill out the Cool & Collected collector profile?
