  • Awww....I’m totally crying too!! Very touching spotlight on a big-hearted Star Wars family. Star Wars = valuable life lessons and it’s the reason I’m still watching decades later.

    • @Dorian Grey No, this isn't an ad campaign. That's not the point of these Star Wars stories. You sir.. are the people that twist things into something it isn't. Our Star Wars Stories is about the people of the fandom and how much people have had their life changed in such a positive way from Star Wars.

      WildcannonzWildcannonz11 aylar önce
    • @Niko Janatuinen I thought that was pretty plain. Getting people emotional and all happy feely watching good wholesome family time is not going to work as an ad campaign. What did you think I was saying? Are you one of those twisted people that tries to turn everything someone says into something that it isnt?
