Hey everyone! I'm a long time Star Wars fan who grew up with the original trilogy but I just found this site tonight! I guess I'm more of a casual fan than a hardcore geek but I grew up watching the originals on TV and I saw the 97 special editions in theaters. I saw episode I in theaters too though I didn't see the others in theaters. I have the 97 special edition versions of episodes IV through VI on VHS and I have the unaltered editions on DVD. I also have all of the prequel trilogy on DVD but I've never read any of the EU books and comics and I don't have any Star Wars merchandise. But the announcement of a new trilogy in the works made me excited about the series again so I was looking for a Star Wars forums to join to discuss the series with others. I'm also a big fan of fantasy and sci-fi in general and I'm a really big fan of anime and manga. It's nice meeting everyone and here's to hopefully another decade of Star Wars excitement and fun!
