Ten years ago today, Greedo shot first for the first time – that is, on January 31st 1997, the A New Hope Special Edition was released, ushering us into the a new era of Star Wars fandom. A kinda scary era where it seemed everyone on the internet was obsessed with Han’s blaster and prequel spoilers and the ethics of CGIing twenty-year-old films.
Seriously though, for some of us the ANH SE was the first chance to wait in line and see (at least so we’d remember) Star Wars on the big screen. I can’t recall ever waiting in line for a movie before this – my friends and I rushed to the theater right after school to be first in line for the 6pm show, playing Egyptian Ratscrew for hours.
What’s your ANH SE story?
