Man oh man... The anticipation, the build up, the hype... I would argue that the months and weeks building up to that May release date in 1999 where the greatest time to be a Star Wars fan. The most fun time to be a Star Wars fan, that's for certain!
Here is a compilation of news footage about the camp out and line up for tickets at my local theater. - I remember getting a call at work from a friend saying that people where lining up and we had to be there NOW! I lied about having to go get my wife, and rushed out of work. I made it in time to be 5th in line!
Good time, good times... But why did I think the bucket hat was a good look?
