Great podcast. As a kid, I was into everything Star Wars when it was first released. I had all of the initial figures, including the special stand you could get via mail order and the Death Star play set. I had to convince my parents that I needed two figures each of the Stormtroopers, Jawas, and Sand People to represent they were always in groups. I read all of the Marvel comics and still have them. I read all of the early novels and thought the Thrawn trilogy should have been filmed. I was thrilled when the comics moved to Dark Horse because the art was stronger and the stories were more mature. Then, the day Star Wars died came. It was May 19, 1999. I returned to the theater in 2002 and 2005 with hope but always left the theater disappointed. I lost interest in everything Start Wars as the books and comics focused on the prequel characters that I found so bland and uninteresting. Even so, I still have hope for Star Wars VII-IX and I really think that Disney should adapt the Thrawn series as a trilogy of CGI films to fill the gap between VI and VII. I guess I'm an eternal optimist.

Must say that I loved the novels and Dark Horse comics that were out in the 1990s. So many great stories being produced that I could have never foreseen how bad the prequels would be. Like Shag, I enjoyed listening to the audio adaptations. When we saw the Phantom Menace in 1999 they're was no attempting to convince ourselves that it was good. We left the theater disillusioned :-(
