It’s Manic Monday!
With the holidays wrapping up it’s always a tad crazy. My mom and I actually were able to see The Force Awakens on Christmas Eve and had such a nice day! Who doesn’t love Star Wars? Pinky and Keith are huge fans and Pinky did a wonderful recap of when she met the cast of the seven episode saga!
Check out her recap below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here in a Star Wars state of mind after seeing the film four times since it opened.
Obviously, we loved it! Of course, that should come as no surprise to anyone who knows my husband – Keith just happens to be one of the biggest Star Wars fans in the planet.
For our wedding, we not only had little Star Wars mini-figurines in all the boutonnieres,
but Keith’s groom’s cake had a Star Wars theme, as well.
Last year we had a blast attending Star Wars Celebration down in Anaheim and were able to meet not only Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher (aka Luke and Leia),
but also Jeremy Bulloch (who played Boba Fett),
and Felix Sila (who was one of the Ewoks).
We also got to take some fun photo ops
and even saw a pink R2-K2 robot (did you spot it in the new film?).
Previously, we’d had an awesome experience meeting both Oscar Isaac (who plays Poe Dameron)
and Femi Taylor (who played one of Jabba the Hut’s slave dancing girls, Oola).
But even before I’d met Keith, I had the good fortune to meet several people involved in the Star Wars saga – from the older films to the most recent one. Andy Serkis (who plays Snoke),
Ewan McGregor (Obi Wan Kenobi),
Greg Grunberg (Resistance fighter pilot, Snap Wexley),
Hayden Christensen (Darth Vader),
Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn),
and Simon Pegg (Unkar Plutt).
Hopefully I’ll be able to meet some of the breakout stars from the film – especially Daisy Ridley, I love her! – at some point, but for now I’m stoked with all the people I’ve met so far. If you haven’t see The Force Awakens yet, I strongly suggest you do. May the Force be with you.
