    Hey guys.

    Thanks for letting me join, I must admit I’m completely new to watching Star Wars. I watched one of the new ones a couple years back, however just watched the first one for the first time.

    My grandfather worked on the first film, drew some of the original R2d2 drawings.
    Looking forward to watching them all now!

    what’s everyone’s favourite film?

    Welcome aboard! Cool that your grandfather worked on the first film drawing R2-D2, who is one cool droid:cool:

    My favorite film is Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

    We hope you enjoy our forums. We have some really passionate fans. I myself, have been a fan since I first saw ANH in 1977. Yes that also should tell you that I am old. :)
