I have a huge confession to make. I might lose many of you along the way, but I promise, I’ve changed my thinking. Ok, ready? Here it goes.. I never watched Star Wars before the most recent release, The Force Awakens. I was a little bummed when Disney took over and Minnie and Mickey now dressed as Star Wars characters. But, I’ve come around. I get it now. After watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens with my husband, I understand the craze. The constant excitement, non-stop adventure, and the need to know what happens next- Star Wars has all the elements of awesome film making. Let’s not forget the amazing graphics! I get it now!
Since my oldest has jumped on the Star Wars bandwagon along with my middle child who is fascinated by Darth Vader (she’s also the child who loves every Disney villain) asked to watch The Force Awakens, we decided to make it part of Friday Family movie night last week. Disney provided this awesome gift box for everyone to not only enjoy the film but be part of the action! Since my hubby is a Star Wars fanatic, I let him open the box. It was like taking a glimpse into his childhood when he saw all the goodies Disney and Hasbro provided us with.
How cool is this care package!? As we went though all the goodies, my husband explained various parts of the earlier Star Wars movies so I had a better understanding of the plot. Now I’m even more excited to see the earlier versions and finally be able to say I’ve watched and understand what Star Wars is all about! You can head over to Amazon to get your hands on the latest Star Wards movie and toys to create your own Friday Family Movie Night!
A huge thanks to Disney and Hasbro for providing everything we needed to enjoy a family movie night and learn more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
