    Hello fellow fans.
    Some of you may be aware that I've recently interviewed some members of YJN for a story that will appear in the St. Catharines Standard.
    I'm thinking of running a companion piece with the main story, a collection of thoughts from several different fans.
    My request here is quite simple, just finish the sentence, "I love Star Wars because . . . "
    Brevity is important, and while I appreciate all the help with this, I may be unable to use all the responses posted.
    Thanks again for all your help.
    Cheers.

    Kalvin doesn't want to hear my answer again. Somebody must be willing to say why they love the movies?

    How could I ever forget that classic? :p (Sorry Stef)

    "I like Star Wars becuase it is more intresting than Real Life"

    Though it has been pointed out that it still would have sounded dorkier if I had referred to real life as "RL" but the fact that I used the term "Real Life" is still pretty bad ;)

    Well, I'm from London, so I hope you don't mind if I post....

    I love Star Wars because of the Lightsaber fights and the costumes. The first costume I ever tried to make, when I was about 10, was an Obi Wan Kenobi costume, but I've gotten better at making them since then.

    Don't worry Bayley, I'll be gentle.
    And by the way, the movie is pretty damn good.

    No worries, my lips are sealed. All I will give away is that Anakin turns into Darth Vader ;-)

    I like Star Wars because it inspired me. When I first saw the films I was 6, and since then I have had a huge fascination with space and as I grew older, it grew into more of a scientific interest. Now, my ultimate career goal it to work in a space science field, most likely astrophysics, and maybe someday, go up in the shuttle myself. I also found Luke's story quite motivating. He's a nobody from the middle of nowhere, and ends up saving the galaxy.

    And I guess all the spaceships and lightsabers and stuff are cool too. :p

    I like Star Wars because.... I guess because of the story to it, it's not something that's common, so it keeps you grounded that way, but it's just an amazing story, to me it's one of those "love conquers all" stories. :)

    And ugg you guys! I wasn't paying attention to what I was saying!

    And he still is hot, but really, I've seen better ;)

    Hello, I'm from Singapore and saw your post...hope you don't mind

    I like Star Wars because it is something we can all relate to, the lovable characters, the unpredictable storyline, the problems and challenges faced, and the sticky situaions the protagonists always find themselves in, etc. It is a modern fairytale, a simple story of good versus evil and how good always triumphs in the end. It us all a sense of hope that everything will turn out right and encourages us to never stop believing in our dreams.

    From the Halton Boards, hope you don't mind...

    I love Star Wars because it opened up a whole new realm in my imagination. There is so much more to it than just the 6 movies, there are the books, the fanfilms and fanfiction...nevermind a great community of people behind it! Well, that and who wouldn't want the power of the Force?

    I heard this was published last week. Is there an online version? or can someone scan it and post it? I'd like to see the article.

    I tried to find the "online" version also but did not fine anything. I think the Standard is really picky and choosy regarding what content is put on there website. It is a very limited amount from each paper day to day.

    Unless Kalvin has a supper secret web address I'll try to scan the article and get Justin to post it for everyone.
