Today is December 18, 2013. That means that there are two more years until Star Wars: Episode VII debuts on the big screen.
When the release date was announced in early November and I relayed the news to my staff at work, my student library assistant turned to me and asked, “So that means you won’t be here [working]?” He’s right. I plan to be on the queue for the midnight release. It’ll be a cold December day, so I’ll make sure to be bundled up with all of my Star Wars garb.
I’m looking forward to meeting many Star Wars fans that night. I’m also preparing myself mentally for the inevitable critics that will take to the Web and pick at the details. I can’t wait to take a seat and travel back to that galaxy far, far away.
I’m glad we’ll have Star Wars Rebels to hold us over. The next decade will be an exciting one for Star Wars fans everywhere.
