Children of the Force #17 - The Star Wars Lines Special

November 19, 2015

A month out from The Force Awakens, I reminisce about going to the prequels on their opening nights. Most of the story focuses on the line for The Phantom Menace and how I was among the first in the world to see the opening ten minutes of TPM twice.

Star Warsy Stuff: 0:50
 : 
But first, we quickly talk about a bit of Star Warsy stuff. And we discuss what we might do while we wait in line for The Force Awakens and how we need to keep our yaps shut when we leave the theater so as not to spoil the movie for those waiting in line for the next show.

Story Time: 9:25

 : 
I hope you enjoy this story. It's not amazing or particularly ground-breaking or unique, but it was super fun to tell the kids. And I had fun editing it. I even used a needle scratch sound effect, the audio equivalent of a star-wipe. Fancy.

Outro: 37:00
 : 

We go out on a decent note. And a quick blurb about #WheresRey.

As I told and edited the story, I felt a bit like I was ripping off Bobby Roberts' Full of Sith special, Last Gasp, which is a great audio essay on Star Wars fandom and how The Force Awakens will change it. So go listen to that after you listen to this. Here it is: http://fullofsith.com/archives/1534
