I was never a fan of Star Wars. Gasp! I know, right? When we were kids, my father used to make my brother and I watch the original trilogy over and over (and over) again. As a girl that was more interested in ponies than storm troopers, it was difficult to stay engaged. Fast forward to 2016, I revisited the original Star Wars movies. I decided there had to be more going for it than Harrison Fords ultimate babe-dom and the intrigue of the Ewoks. Of course, there was.
It’s funny how a movie made over 30 years ago is still wildly popular as it is today. The amazing part is that it will most likely carry on for another few decades. Why do I think that?
This past December I got commissioned to make a stool for a little boys Christmas present. When given the option of cars, planes, or Star Wars, something in my heart told me to go for Star Wars. It seemed like a no brainer. I fashioned what I thought to be a perfect gift. Only days, after he received it, Carrie Fisher passed away. By a twist of fait, the most bad ass princess of all times passed away just in time for the next generation to carry out their love of Star Wars.
