Longing For Luke And Leia

The more years that pass and the older we get, A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away begins to make more and more sense.  Star Wars and 1977 slip farther back into history every day, but that infamous sentence carries more weight, more emotion and memory, it seems, with each minute that goes by.  We kinda think George Lucas knew that it would, too. That his intention all along was not just to make Star Wars popular back in the day, but to make it even bigger - more Force-ful - as a story best remembered, and longed for, as much in its own science fictional world as it is in our real one. At least, that's what we suspect...you?
