A Long Time Ago… 35 Years, To Be Precise

Has it really been 35 years since A New Hope… er, I mean Star Wars, hit theaters?

Every time I watch Episode IV, I remember being a kid. Let’s celebrate with a trip down memory lane.

Her FANgirl opinions can be heard on the podcasts Hyperspace Theories and Fangirls Going Rogue.
