The first time I saw STAR WARS was at the Murray Bridge Drive-In, somewhere between 1982-1986.
Interestingly it is one of lots of moment in my life that remains a strong visual memory:
My stepbrothers and I lay in the back of a Toyota Lite-Ace Van, watching tie-fighters chase X-wing-fighters across the starry black sky. Sci-Fi stories had jumped off the page into our minds.
Now it makes me smile that the EIGHTH episode of the epic is under production for release in 2018.
Jai will be seven-years-young by then, ready to keep the fan-base alive.
Let’s hope his mummy is OK by then for him to see it.
