As a member of the (very small) social media team here at Lucasfilm, I have the honor of reading, responding to, laughing at, loving, and sharing all of your Star Wars conversations every day. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet; every Friday, I’ll share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!
My dad introduced me to Star Wars when I was pretty young, and as I got older, he dutifully brought me to see the Special Editions and prequels when they came out. (For the kids, right? Definitely not because he wanted to see them.) I may not have latched on right away, but I credit him for my love of Star Wars. This is a theme I see every single day in our fandom: parents passing on what they have learned to their younglings. The power of the Force really brings people together, and it’s awesome.

Even if our kids are really, really furry.
I’m looking forward to watching all of your Star Wars Weekends fun! Stay hydrated and use #SWW2015.
