Let me preface by saying that a lot of people are going to find this hard to believe. I have never seen Star Wars. Growing up my parents were more into music than movies so I never got to venture down that road to a galaxy far far away. By the time I was old enough to discover the legend on my own several of the movies had already come out. I felt that I was too far behind to catch up. Now that I’m older and the hype is rebuilding I have put it on my list to try and jump on the bandwagon. I would love to sit down and watch all of the movies in the proper order but what college student has time for that? I love that Star Wars has bridged the gap between generations and its following spans farther than most people realize. When I was little my mother and I read every single Harry Potter book. I’ve seen all the movies at least five times. Since the beginning I have been part of the Harry Potter fandom. There are few people out there that have not seen or read anything of J.K. Rowling’s. That might raise an eye brow with me but then I realize that I am on a similar boat with a different franchise. There are several expansions of movies and books that I would love to get into and read or watch. Books like The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and even The Avengers movies. I could go on and on. Perhaps one day I will find the time to settle in and make the long journey into the different worlds. But for now I am finding peace with the fact that I don’t have to be a part of every fandom or popular thing that comes along. Just because it isn’t my cup of tea right now doesn’t mean I might not enjoy it later even after the hype is gone.
