Exactly 30 years ago today (25th May 1977), Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope was released in the U.S. There are be lots of event lined up in the U.S to celebrate this day.
In L.A, there will be a marathon screening of all six movies! O_O gosh, on average one movie was about 2+ hours – that would means 15+ hours of non-stop screening.
But what I want to get my hands on is the US Postal “Star Wars” commemorative stamps. I wonder where in Malaysia I can buy it…
^ see, they are lovely ^^ …I checked the StarWarsShop.com and it costs about US$ 19.90 without shipping & tax! That would means.. over RM 100 (including shipping & tax) O_O But that shop don’t ship to Malaysia! What ?!
News regarding the anniversary:
- CRIEnglish article
- BBC 30 pieces of trivia about Star Wars – you need to read this, it’s very interesting ^^
- BBC Interview with Anthony Daniels aka C-3PO
My favorite characters for all six films are the droids (C-3PO and R2-D2). They are a lot funnier than the human characters. Han Solo came third. But his ship, Millenium Falcon, is my favorite Star Wars ship.
