With the release of the new Star Wars film this past weekend, the excitement was in the air at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It was fun seeing these Storm Troopers wandering through the crowd. Star Wars was the first sci-fi that I was drawn into. I remember going to the theatre to see it. However, what I really remember, is my parents renting a VCR and the movie Star Wars for the weekend. My sister and our friends watched it over and over again.

What I still find amazing about these movies is just how ground breaking they were. The technology that was invented just to make them happen is impressive. What I love pondering though, is how our lives today are affected by the imagination used to create stories like Star Wars and Star Trek. The aspects of these stories that inspired people to invent what we use as ‘every day’ today. Things like the cell phone I used to take this photo.
All it takes is a spark of imagination!
