Ok Star Wars fans, in honor of today (May 4), I thought I would start a thread pertaining to the greatest story every (ok, so the prequel trilogy sucked majorly, but nothing beats the originals). Feel free to post comments on your favorite characters, movies, expanded universe books, hopes for the new movies starting in 2015, etc etc.
Favorite movie: The Empire Strikes Back - "And I thought they smelled bad on the outside..."
Favorite character: Obi-wan Kenobi
Hopes for the new movies: when I originally heard the news I hoped that they would adapt the Timothy Zhan books covering the reign of Grand Admiral Thrawn (which takes place 5-10 years after Return of the Jedi). Although I'm dissapointed they aren't doing that, I'm intrigued by J.J. Abrams being in charge of the reboot. At this point I am cautiously optimistic (they can't be worse than the the prequel trilogy, right??) but not overly hopeful. Thoughts.
