If there is one thing that the internet generation has in common, it’s Star Wars. From the first movie in 1977, kids have enjoyed the movies, toys, clothing, decor, and most of all, the make-believe play from a time long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away. These childhood memories from all over are archived at the website I Gew Up Star Wars. It has years of image and video submissions from Star Wars fans.
Do you remember playing with your STAR WARS figures in the sandbox? Do you remember running around the schoolyard at recess on a snowy day pretending you were riding atop a Taun Taun? Do you remember talking your parents into watching STAR WARS at the theater just one more time, because nine times just wasn’t enough? Do you remember begging your Mom for that Stormtrooper figure you walked past at the grocery store? If you remember any of those things, you have come to the right place.
Looking at these pictures makes me regret not being able to grow up with Star Wars, but then I console myself with the fact that I did get to watch the first man walk on the moon live on TV. -via the A.V. Club
