    That to me is what makes Star Wars so fascinating. The vastness and the abject fervor of the fanbase is incredible. The fact that just as many people (if not more) that were not alive to see the OT in the theaters are just as jacked as those of us that were.

    I saw ESB in the theater when I was almost 4 but I barely remember it. I definitely remember seeing Jedi in the theater a couple of times when I was 7. #oldguy :)

    8 hours and 13 minutes!!!!!!!!

    Return of the Jedi was released a few years before I was born... I watched the (pre-SE) OT over and over again in the 90's, so much so that the tape comes off the reel of ESB if you rewind the VHS tape completely :p The Phantom Menace came out when I was in Junior High, Revenge of the Sith came out the month I graduated high school.

    I don't have a costume, but I've got three Star Wars shirts to decide between for wearing to the theater tonight: OT characters, X-wings in front of the Alliance logo, and a blueprint of the Falcon. Think I'll go with the Falcon since it seems like it's going to have a very prominent role in this one. :)
    This will be a day long remembered: the rebirth of Star Wars. :bluesaber:

    I'm just shy of 11 hours away! :D

    I was 5 when I saw ESB! #stuckinthemiddle

    I'm not wearing a Star Wars shirt, only because it will possibly spark conversation with people that have no regard for spoiler-free folks like me.

    I have to say, I'm glad that you, as someone who was born after ROTJ, has as much enthusiasm as us old folk.
    May The Force Be With Us!

    I was born the December right after ROTJ came out. I grew up with the OOT thanks to my dad. Discovered the EU when I was 10/11 and really was hooked. I love SW & ESB....but there's something about ROTJ that I really love. Its kinda weird, but when I pop my ROTJ DVD in and hear the opening fan fare I start giggling like a little kid. Don't do that with any of the others.

    My new re-watch plan is to watch ROTJ every day at least once until I see TFA on monday. Keeps my Star Wars enthusiasm up AND keeps me out of TFA trouble. Double win!

    I think I'm going to re-visit my t-shirt collection to see what I have...

    5 hours 39 minutes for me.

    Honestly, it doesn't even feel real. I've waited for so long, it can't possibly be over.

    I've still got 5+ hours to go. Definitely doesn't seem real.

    I never thought another Star Wars movie would be made... "Come on, [J.J.] ol' buddy... don't let me down!"

    5 days for me. Christmas festivities are keeping my mind busy, so there's that.

    Just finished watching the entire saga last night. I'm ready to go.
