    OK All - Now Oregon Jedi has already asked the question: "What are you doing to prepare for the upcoming movie??"

    My question is far more important: "What are you doing to prepare for the aftermath???"

    We have now spent years, and decades, waiting for "the next" Star Wars film. What will we do without this anticipation. How are we preparing ourselves emotionally for the "final curtain"?

    For me, I have been trying to get into a new series of SW novels. I am trying to get into the Clone Wars series, but its slow. Without Luke, Han and Leia, I am having trouble getting into them.

    Well, I will have to countdown the days until both of the tv shows arrive and for all of the films to be converted to 3-D.

    Get ON with life....*sniff*

    Awe come on guys! There were SW Fanatics long AFTER classic t. and WAY BEFORE new t.! They didn't have a "movie to look forward to", they just lived SW because it was awesome. Not because of the "hype".
    So this next generation will do the same. SW will no longer be in the spotlight anymore, just as before this new trilogy. But it will always be THERE. A remembered, loved, and classic story about the Jedi.

    haha, yeah right -- I hate it when people say, "Get on with life." For real fans, Star Wars will always be with them, always be part of their lives. You can continue to enjoy the films forever.

    For me? I'll be watching ROTS over and over all summer, at least 50 times, I want to break my AOTC viewing count. I'll also be promoting my book and probably working on an Episode III book.

    I've just heard today that I'll be writing a chapter in a book by the guy who wrote Jacking Into the Matrix. I'm very excited for the opportunity so I'll be doing LOTS of Star Wars related work and enjoyment still... ;)

    After may 19th, I will likely still see it a couple more times, but the truth is for me in between the prequels even, I get more excited about other movies than starwars, then when the next one gets close I get caught up in it again(which is fun). This summer still has Batman Begins, War of The Worlds, and Fantastic Four, Mr and Mrs Smith, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Brothers Grimm, The Longest Yard, Dukes of Hazard, The 40 Year old Virgin, Thumbsucker(which i was an extra in, and one of my friends has a part in), Bewitched, The Island.

    After that, but still in 2005 we still have:
    The Legend of Zorro, Chicken Little, Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, King Kong, Underworld sequel, and even Zathura looks interesting.....

    Then we have a ton of cool stuff in the pipeline....
    Spider-Man 3 with two new villians,
    Casino Royale the new James Bond movie,
    X-men3 with Dark Phoenix,
    Bryan Singer's Superman Returns!
    Pirates of the Carribean 2
    Ghost Rider with Nic Cage
    Miami Vice by Heat director and with Jamie Foxx
    Joss Whedon of Buffy is doing a Wonder Woman movie
    New Animated Jerry Sienfeld movie
    2 sequels to Sin City and a Conan movie by Robert Rodriguez
    Potentially an Indianna Jones IV
    even a will farell curious george could be good.
    the Da Vinci Code with Tom Hanks
    Mission Impossible III
    Spy Hunter
    Passion of the Clerks

    and these are just the Genre type films, there will be tons of great dramas and independents that will fill in the time around these. In addition we will have a weekly dose of new starwars soon via the tv.

    Probably not everything ive listed will appeal to everything, obviously some of it appeals to me WAY more than others, but hopefully your eye will catch something else that will entertain you in the theaters....

    Remember, the force will be with you...ALWAYS...

    Of course I get excited about many other films as I run a critical review site, so I try to see basically anything major, but Star Wars is rare, it's special. You don't get a chance at this very often, so I wouldn't give that way personally.

    I really can't understand the fans who say, "Yeah I'll see it about 3 times in theaters, that's enough." After 3 times, you can't recite any of the dialogue, you won't have time to look at the backgrounds, you can barely even know the plot by 3 viewings. I spent the first 10 on the plot and then start to memorize after maybe 15 to 20 viewings, then background details thereafter.

    I think the minimum number you can see a Star Wars movie and really understand it well is 10 times, and that's a bit on the light side. These movies are only in theaters for a limited time, it's such a special event, it's worth returning over and over, if not just to appreciate the film yourself, then to support Star Wars and hopefully make ROTS one of the 3 highest grossing films of all time.

    We need fans who show up in support every weekend, for every week of the theatrical run. I'll be there 3-5 times per week, but seeing a new Star Wars movie once per week, I mean come on, that's not very much. Maybe I'm just an unusual fan, but when I see a new Star Wars movie in theaters, I am not satisfied like, "Well, I saw that, great! It was awesome. Now onto the next thing." Heck no. I see it once and I'm dying to see it again. After every showing, it's like an amusement ride, I want to get back on it again and see it again as soon as possible. I simply cannot go 3 days without seeing a Star Wars movie while it's in theaters because to me that's a wasted opportunity. I feel bad every day it plays and I'm not there.

    I'll probably have seen ROTS 10 times before the end of the first week pretty easily. One on May 12, before the premiere, then two or three on May 19, another on May 20 (I'm busy this day so only once, haha), a few on May 21 I'm sure, and probably every day for a while. I'll miss May 24 because I'm busy that day too, but I'll make sure to show my support and fill those seats.

    55 viewings, here we come! Well, maybe more, depends how long it plays, but I'll guarantee 55.
