Star Wars is part of the classic film canon, and the more I re-watch them, the happier I am that my boys are obsessive devotees. If you haven't already, consider letting your kids watch the series, at least the original three.
Some stories are better left untold. I didn't need to know that the Force is the cause and effect of midichlorians. I didn't need to know that Anakin Skywalker was actually a pretty whiny and annoying kid and adolescent.
As a kid, one of my favorite comic book series was What If? by Marvel Comics. Set in random alternate realities, each issue placed a familiar character in unfamiliar territory (e.g. What if the Hulk had the brain of Bruce Banner? What if the world knew Daredevil was blind?).
How can we sit back and simply let our beloved stories mirror lingering and embarrassing gender roles that barely have a place in today's culture, less so in our futuristic fantasies? Yes. Yes. "Long time ago / Far Far Away," but you know what I mean.
A professional pundit was fired because he wrote an opinion piece that was factually inaccurate. Is that even a thing? "Journalists" can get fired for saying things which are false (things that five minutes of fact-checking would have proven laughably wrong), and for other stupid comments?
May 4 is unofficially "Star Wars Day." In other words, it's the only time of the year -- other than Comic-Con -- that grown adults can run around with plastic blaster rifles and carry on conversations in Ewokese without ridicule.
