    my dad took me to see the re-release in '97 when I was ten, and thought, hey, that's pretty cool, and then forgot about for awhile. and then I watched TMP on VHS with my neighbor, and again I thought SW was cool, and same thing when I saw AOTC in theatres with my dad and sister. and a little over a year ago, I borrowed AOTC on VHS from my neighbor, and then it finally hit me that SW was the best thing ever. it kind of took awhile, but here I am, lol.

    It was a gradual process. A New Hope really caught my attentino and I was hooked after about half way through The Empire Strkes Back.

    When I was like 7 and my aunt was watching "The Return of Jedi" on VHS and I enjoyed the lightsaber battle between Luke an Vader. That's when I got caught on and wanted to learn more and such.

    When my cousin and I were watching the Special Edition on our way back from Orlando, 4 hour drive, I think we got through ANH, ESB, and then we watched Jurassic Park. :p

    I'm a fairly recent fan..I hadn't really seen any of the movies until about 6 or 7 years ago, when one Easter Sunday I borrowed my brother's videos and watched IV, V and VI all in one go

    I actually saw the classic trilogy in reverse order. So I was hooked after ROTJ.

    I have been a Star Wars fan my entire life. I really cant remember when I first got hooked on George Lucas' universe.

    When the Special Editions came out, I had no interest. My mother saw ANH with my brother and without me, since I refused. But when ESB started in theaters, she forced me to go with- and then I was hooked.

    When TPM came out.

    My parents were never into Star Wars so I'd never seen it before then. A day or so before I saw TPM I hired all the OT on video and I was like "This is amazing, why have I never seen this before?"!!

    I chose "When post 1991 EU began" since it was the only alternative that fit exact time I got into Star Wars. But it wasn't Zahn's books that made me a fun but seeing the old trilogy on a Swedish television channel in December 1994.

    Watching the OT on VHS when I was a child. I don't remember which one got me hooked.

    ANH. I saw it the first time on (German) TV around 1990, when we got our first satellite dish. Blasphemy, huh? I also saw the SE only on TV![face_whistling]

    The first SW movie I saw was TPM but I didn't become a fan until I saw ANH.

    Star Wars has always been a part of my life, but it wasn't anything special, until after I saw TPM. So that's what I picked.
