1.  Watch all 3 original trailers with your kiddos to give them a glimpse into your own childhood and how movies used to be hyped! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kd5_WzYcH0

1977

2.  Share with your family the first time you experienced Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope. If you saw it in 1977 share every detail of how this movie changed our world. Fun Fact: Star Wars was released in only 43 theaters and in the first weekend it made 1.5 million. Big money back then!

3.  Watch the making of Star Wars! Kids sometimes think computers can do everything to make cool effects in a movie. Show them what determination was needed to change the way films were made forever without computers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIlYk7KQe-s

4.  Finally, get them psyched out of their minds and plan for another first experience that will never come again! Watch the trailer for Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens and start planning now for 12/18/15!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngElkyQ6Rhs
