The League #4

This week’s assigment from the League of Bloggers is:

What media announcement had you throwing fist pumps and doing roundhouse kicks in the air? Did the final result live up to your dreams?

This one is easy for me: when they announced that Star Wars was going to be re-released in theatres with extended and additional scenes . I have not been that excited about any media announcement since then. I think I heard the annoucement 2 years before the first one was to come out and it seemed like an eternity until then. Nowadays 2 years flies by like nothing. Getting to see the Star Wars trilogy in the theatre was awesome! I vaguely remember watching Return of the Jedi in a theatre. I had watched the series so many times on TV and VHS that to actually sit in the theatre was fantastic. Plus, on opening day of Jedi I got a free exclusive Luke Skywalker action figure!

The best thing about the action figure- when I saw Jedi in the theatre as a kid they had stickers on the drinks and popcorn cups and if you mailed them in you could get a Luke as Jedi action figure- the same one I got for the re-release! Now the circle is complete!!

 I didn’t care too much for the extended and additional scenes but getting to see the movies again more than made up for it.

They did have some awesome poster art!

My runner up is when they announced Indiana Jones 4. But that movie didn’t make me too happy so we’re not going to talk about it…

    You might be! I liked parts of it but overall I feel with the talent behind the movie it shouldhave been tons better. But I still watch it occasionally. I do like the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, those are really fun.
