    I first heard about Star Wars when my father brought home the VCD for The Phantom Menace. And my brother and I absolutely loved the story! After that we followed the 5th and 6th movies. We even rewatched Star Wars 1, 2 and 3! 🙂

  2. Edwin Arceo says:

    I first heard about Star Wars when i was able to watch how the movie was made on TV. It was exciting because the moviemakers used a lot of scale models of the Millennium Falcon, the Death Star, and my favorite, the X Wings. Too bad I was not able to watch it when it was first shown because I was too young back then to watch a movie alone. (My dad won;t let me)

  4. Christina says:

    I fist heard about Star Wars when I was in grade 4, when The Matrix and Phantom Menace was released. My classmates were talking about those movies and their effects. Took me a couple of years to finally watch it.

  5. http://lonelyjoker.multiply.com/journal/item/276/Star_Wars

    First heard about it in FRIENDS where Ross had a Princess Lea fantasy.

  6. Ray Garcia says:

    I first heard about Star Wars when I picked up an old gold edition VCD of movies 4 through 6 here at home. I didn’t get much of the plot when I was a kid, but I still thought lightsabers were cool. And the “Luke, I am your father.” line got stuck in my head as well. It took a few more years before the first movie was released, and I tried playing through the video games too, but no luck there. 😀

  7. First heard about Star Wars through older cousins who won’t stop talking about the first trilogy.

  8. Andrew says:

    My earliest memory of Star Wars: receiving a copy of the oversized Marvel Special Edition comic book adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back from an uncle and getting the impression that the sheer scale of this story wasn’t just in the physical dimensions of the book.

  9. Cris says:

    Earliest memory of Star Wars is watching The Phantom Menace in my computer. It’s the first time I played a CD in my PC and the first time I heard of Star Wars.

  10. Chachic says:

    The Star Wars Moleskine looks great! I first heard about Star Wars when my parents took me to the cinema to watch the first trilogy. I can’t even remember how old I was when I first saw the movies.

  11. Tricia says:

    I first heard of Star Wars was when my mom took home bunch of CDs of the movies from an officemate. I’m not much a big fan but that’s Star Wars!

  13. Chari says:

    I first heard (or read,rather) about Star Wars on K-zone when I was a kid. I didn’t know anything about the movie series but surprisingly, I found a DVD set of the whole franchise. And that’s how I got to know Star Wars!

  14. Anina Rubio says:

    I first heard about Star Wars back in the 90s when my Mom rented a VHS copy of the three movies – A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi 🙂

  15. Frances says:

    I remember having a crush on Luke Skywalker as a kid, back in the 90’s when I would watch the Star Wars movies on late night TV specials with my parents.

  16. Steph Aves says:

    First heard about Star Wars as a little girl through my Dad, who’s a film fanatic! He carefully explained to me all the plot points and twists. Thanks Dad! (Thanks avalon.ph!) 😀

  17. I saw Star Wars (VI) accidentally airing on TV. I remember it was the scene when Princess Leia was captured by Jubba. After that, my brother and I rented the VCD of Episode 4, 5 and 6. 🙂

  18. I first heard about Star Wars when my uncle took me to see The Empire Strikes Back. It was the second movie I ever saw at a movie theater. I’ve been addicted to it since — put posters up in my room, collected Kenner figures, followed the canon and EU, and of course, stood in line and watched the movies religiously.

  19. Joan Macawili says:

    Funny bit about star trek, lol.

    First time I ever heard of star wars? Hmmm… I guess when I watched it in the movies as a kid. I remember the movie theater was jampacked, we literally had to sit on the floor. I don’t recall hearing about it before that though.

  20. Chris says:

    I first learned about star wars when I was really little. Being born in 1980 I missed the initial hype, buzz, craziness-whatnot the first time around. I remember being in a car with my parents going to the bank, and they gave me a star wars action figure when my parents opened a savings account for me…. It was amazing. Luke skywalker with a retractable light saber. Epic. It had to be at the release of return of the Jedi or empire strikes back, I have no clue which movie it was now… That was a long time ago, in a station wagon far far away…

  21. Ana says:

    The first time I have encountered Star Wars was when I was about 6 years old (early 80’s). My bro, an avid fan til’ now was the one who was into it. It was the betamax era. And he got a copy of the film. I was fascinated and intrigued for such a young age. Needless to say, that copy of Star wars was shown daily in our household due to my insistence. I got hooked with C3PO and R2D2. Got scared of Darth Vader. Loved the cuddly Ewoks (though they can be feisty sometimes) Hero worship Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. And bowed to the Sensei Yoda. Until that tape is well scratched from my repeated viewing. Thanks Avalon for this opportunity….May the Force be with you.

  22. I knew about Star Wars because my boyfriend is a big fan! I really want to give this to him for christmas because I know it would really make him happy!:D

  23. Mich Angeles says:

    I first heard about Star Wars when my dad rented VHS tapes of the first three films. I was only a kid back then but I was really fascinated with the story, even more when my dad explained it to me. Was a fan ever since. 😉

  24. Anne Margaux Quezada says:

    I first heard about star wars when I was in grade school. It was repeatedly advertise in the TV sets. And my uncles kept talking about it. But I fell in love with it when I saw phantom menace and the next movies after that. I had to buy the old movies just to tell myself that I’ve watch from start to finish!

  25. Gayna says:

    I first heard about Star Wars through my older siblings, they rented VHS tapes of the older Star Wars movies when I was about 9. Didn’t fully understand it then but that’s when my interest in strange-looking creatures (among other things) began. Was able to appreciate and love it all the more through my Speculative Fiction elective in college. 🙂

  26. Pocholo Felix says:

    I first heard about Star Wars when I saw a VHS of the original pre-special edition VHS tapes from my uncle back in 1995-1996.

    Never really thought about it much…then Episode I was released in 1999 and people started to chant: “QUEEN AMIDALAAAA.” then still didn’t bother.

    UNTIL…

    I saw Yoda fight Count Dooku in 2002.

    That changed my life forever.

  27. First heard about Star Wars when my Mom brought home the original trilogy on VHS when I was a little kid (about five or six years old). I’ve been harboring a crush on Luke ever since. 🙂

  28. Jonver David says:

    I heard Star Wars prolly when I was still in grade school and I loved it ever since (even though some parts of it were still a blur for me that time.) Most of it were given clarity as I grow up and remain a Star Wars fan. Not only that – but also a George Lucas fan. Star Wars is a classic and I think is an essential part of my childhood (having practically NO social life then.) I will always be a Star Wars die hard fan.

  29. AC Pineda says:

    I first heard of Star Wars during the late ’80’s, when Return of the Jedi hadn’t aired yet. My mom went shopping in Cubao. To keep my sisters and I occupied, my Dad pointed out that Star Wars Episode IV was airing OUTSIDE Farmers Plaza. If anyone remembers, they aired a lot of movies screened against the whitewashed walls of Farmers Plaza during that time. People stood across the street where Gateway parking now is to watch them. I stood across that very same street, holding my father’s and sister’s hands while I watched Star Wars Episode IV.

  30. Ronalyn Regino says:

    I’ve been hearing a lot of people talking about how great Star Wars is. But it was only when I met my husband when I really learned about it. In fact, he has a complete CD collection of the series. 🙂

  31. It was a long time ago…in a city not so far away (Quezon City), where I, 5 years old, sat down with my grandfather and uncles and cousins around the TV where they scheduled a Star Wars VHS Viewing party.

    Not knowing what it was, I was mesmerized by light sabers, droids, sith lords as well as the Millenium Falcon, Wookies and at least I knew first hand that Han Solo did indeed shoot first.

  32. julienne says:

    I think I first heard about star wars from my mother. She grew up watching lots of movies. Then back in high school (end of 90s), the Star Wars trilogy was re-released in cinemas! ^^

  33. MyMaria says:

    AWESOME GIVEAWAY!

    1. I think it was back in the 80s when my older male cousins would role play STAR WARS. It was all about Darth Vader back then and how they try to mimic is sound. And then I saw Queen Amidala… WOW! Then I realized Star Wars was a whole new world to explore.

    The first time I heard about “Star Wars” is from my Dad, who just came from Saudi, brought along Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back & Return of the Jedi VHS tapes way back in the early 80s. I was around 6 years old then and we really enjoyed watching it!

  35. Amuly says:

    My little brother was watching, and I didn’t want to because that was “nerd stuff”. Then Han Solo came onto the screen.

    I sat down pretty quick and watched all 3 in one day. Now, 20 years later, I’m proud to say that I am most definitively into all sorts of “nerd stuff”, not just Harrison Ford’s luscious locks and gorgeous grin in Star Wars.

  36. Claire says:

    Gosh, probably all the way back in elementary school! Everyone loved it. I was not a fan,but I’d love to win this for my little brother.

  37. Tin says:

    LOL @ Star Trek!

    I remember seeing “A New Hope” (back then the title was simply “Star Wars”) in a theater with my mom. Yes, in the 70’s XD I was 7 or 8 years old at the time and I worshipped Luke Skywalker! LMAO

    For some reason I didn’t like “The Empire Strikes Back” as much, probably because the good guys lost … and then I saw “Return of the Jedi” in the 80’s and my hero worship revived for a while. Haha good times!

  39. Ivanne says:

    I was raised by Star Wars geeks. My Dad and my brother were huge fans of the saga. So, the fever kinda rubbed on me too. We’d watch our VHS copy of Episode V almost everyday as a toddler. I’d dream about owning my own purple light saber someday, imagine myself as Princess Leia or go to the dark side as a Sith Lord.

    I remember watching the first trilogy on betamax with my dad when I was 3 years old! I remember watching the digitally remastered trilogy in the theater and latter getting the movies on VHS, laser disc, DVD and blu-ray! I played the Star Wars video games. I’ve been reading books from the expanded universe ever since I can remember too. It’s a love affair that has spanned 2 decades!

    I actually first encountered Star Wars a little late than most people. I’ve heard of it before but I did not really pay any attention to the “first” trilogy. I first watched the movie when digitally remastered copies was shown again in the moviehouses. And, right there and there I fell in love with the series! I remember how as a kid I kept on pretending to be Luke Skywalker and a stick as a lightsaber!

  42. Pat says:

    I first heard about Star Wars from my group of guy friends back in high school, but I didn’t really care about it so much because I was never a fan of anything sci-fi. And then year after year, I hear so much about it from my other friends that it got me curious, which to my boyfriend was a delight. During the last long weekend, he finally persuaded me to watch all six movies in one go (in blu-ray!) and surprisingly, I got myself hooked! Now I can’t stop talking about! A Star Wars notebook would be perfect for my everyday notes and reminders 🙂

  43. Macy says:

    I first heard about Star Wars during the summer of 1998. We were staying in my dad’s cousin’s house in Florida. My dad was on a couch, watching some movie on VHS. Being the curious/annoying child that I was, I decided to pepper him with questions while he was watching the movie.

    Me: “Who’s the tall guy with the funny mask?”
    Dad: “That’s Darth Vader.”
    Me: “Who’s the short guy in black?”
    Dad: “That’s the Emperor.”
    Me: “What are they doing?”
    Dad: “Sit down and watch the movie.”

    The movie was “Return of the Jedi”. Little did I know that this movie (and the two more that I watched relentlessly on VHS, plus the three new movies I caught on opening day) would change my life forever 😀

  45. Adrian Arcega says:

    I learned about Star Wars from my uncle back in ’83. Brought me to Greenhills to watch a big slug eat a smaller slug. I remember flashes of light. Opening crawls. A golden droid. The pop-up book from that movie.

    Now I have my own Jedi robes, a lightsaber, and a membership in the Rebel Legion (www.rebellegion.com). I have achieved Jedihood. Now if I can use the Force…

  46. Theresa Ranada says:

    I dunno when was the first time I’ve heard of Star Wars, but it did sound familiar (I remember the Ewoks though). The first time I’ve seen IV-VI though was in 2005, I think. Better late than never!

  47. izlight says:

    I learned about Star Wars when I first saw the film with my father and my older brother, I think that was back in 1999. And before the movie I keep hearing on their conversation about George Lucas which I thought at that time was the actor.

  49. Jac Jacinto says:

    It was the summer of 1996. My older brother took me in hand, sat me down, and had me watch Star Wars: A New Hope. A few hours later found me instantly hooked to the series, so much so that my older brother and I started collecting and quoting Star Wars lines at each other.

    A few years down the road, after playing the games (PC, Playstation, PSP), reading more than ten books and collecting quite a number of figurines later (and a lone green lightsaber), we’re still hooked, and it looks like there’s no end in sight. We plan on introducing it to our future sons and daughters too (and maybe hand down our collection, if we can bear to part with it! :D). Star Wars will always be our number 1 fandom. My brother even had his wedding cake topped with Anakin and Padme! Hopefully in the future, our kids will love it as much as we do. ?

  50. My dad kept a bunch of Betamax tapes in their bedroom when I was little and one of the titles he had was, “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope”.

    Even at that young age, I somehow felt that Star Wars was something that I had to experience. So I asked my dad and he enthusiastically told me to watch IV, V and VI.

    Of course, I loved it because it was awesome and especially at that time when special effects weren’t as polished as they are now. I remember asking him where I, II and III were and he said that they haven’t been made yet and that George Lucas decided to come out with IV, V and VI first. That just added to my fascination. What a strange way to go about things, I thought.

  51. Ymesako says:

    I learned about Star Wars through the movie franchise. It’s part of my childhood. When I was in grade school I wanted the Princess Leia hair. Later I want to be like Darth Vader!

  52. Valerie says:

    The first time I encountered Star Wars was through our neighbors. I think I was around 6 or 7. They were a nice couple, husband and wife, who didn’t have children of their own at that time so they would always invite us neighborhood kids over and play children’s movies while we were there.

    Return of the Jedi wasn’t exactly a “children’s movie” but I remember getting so fascinated with the Ewoks. Of course, I didn’t understand a thing about the story at that time, nor did I care. I was just happy to see cute teddy bear looking creatures running around in their cool village. 🙂

    First time I encountered Star Wars was when I was shown as a primetime Sunday movie in one of the local channels. I don’t remember much else except that I either wanted to be a Jedi, or one of the Sith lords, just so I could have a light saber. I finally got what the story was all about when someone gave us a VHS copy of the original (and still the best parts) trilogy.

    Up to this day, I keep watching the original and the prequels just cause…and I still want a light saber.

  55. Pauline says:

    My brother and I used to share a room. I say “used to” because it was our parents’ wise decision to separate us because we “competed to much with each other.”
    The story all goes back to that fateful day my uncle brought a Master Yoda figurine home from the US. Before that, as it is the truth, I didn’t really bother watching the movie which, apparently, my brother watched at least twice every weekend. I was fascinated with that green, wrinkled, yet somehow seemingly wise-looking figurine that stood in front of my brother’s battalion of toy soldiers and other Star Wars figurines. So fascinated, in fact, that after countless tries of asking my brother to just give it to me, I took it from its home on the top shelf and placed it on my part of the shelf which was practically filled with books and dolls. Somehow, I felt that Master Yoda belonged there. I started educating myself on the whos, whats, and hows of Star Wars just to show my brother that I knew much more than him. But what once was pride actually turned into a fondness for the franchise.
    It was after a few more days that my brother found out about his missing Master Yoda. Needless to say, a fight ensued between him and me, causing our parents to allow us separate bedrooms for the rest of our lives. Or whatever. In the end, I still got Master Yoda.

    First time I encountered Star Wars was during my early childhood years..I think that was in the 90’s. I saw these battery-operated swords that would light. It was like a magic sword for me. My rich neighbors had the best of them. Some stalls during fiesta also sell them. It was fun to watch those other kids sword fight.

  60. Lei Magat says:

    First time I encountered Star Wars was from my elder cousins who are true blue Star Wars fanatics. When I saw the movie, I was so fascinated with Master Yoda’s one-liner quotes and the somewhat reversed manner he delivers it. My favorite quote is “Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering.” Agree, do you? 🙂

  61. Danielle Alonsagay says:

    First time I encountered Star Wars was when I saw Star Wars books in a garage sale. I am not really much of a fan of the sci-fi genre but Star Wars changed that. I have copies of all 6 movies, and am currently addicted to the Xbox game. 😀 This franchise is one of the few things my brothers and I bond over.

    1. I don’t remember the exact age when I learned about Star Wars but I think I was young and my cousins were raving about it since they’re big sci-fi fans. I remember watching the first Star Wars movie with my family but since I was still young, I didn’t understand nor remember much about it.

    I did not hear about Star Wars until I was in my high school years. This was the time that I was into UFOs and such. My friend and I watched the old films and the stories captivated me. I promised to see every single film thereafter.

  65. Jhoanna Ballaran says:

    My very first Star Wars encounter was way back 1999, when me and my siblings watched Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace. We were so fascinated with the action-packed scenes that we really would want to have a sword for ourselves. After the movie, me and my sibling immediately bought a lightsaber for each of us and imitate the fight scenes in the movie. :))

    Got to first hear about the star wars movie when the first episode was about to be shown several years back and when finally shown in movies, it set an untrodden trail that changed the film industry standards. Unbelievable film making style then. Lucas was ahead of his time. Of course now, things are better and film making have evolved due to available revolutionary computer manipulation.

    You can’t forget the openning song once you’ve heard it.

  68. damnvixen says:

    well im not a sci-fi fan, but to take it from JT- I believe in the freedom of science fiction!

    I first heard of Star Wars when Natalie Portman portrayed a princess looking like a china doll, princess amidala, was it? or amygdala? i really dont remember lol..

    but what counts is my knack for notebooks and what could be more lovable than a moleskine? I want that sparkly moleskine!

  69. Allan Reyes says:

    The first time I heard about star wars is through my brother in the 80’s watching it on betamax.

  71. Irish says:

    I was about 10 and my dad took me to see Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in the cinema. That was the first time I’ve seen a movie and witnessed long lines at the box office and a standing room only theater. 🙂

  72. Lawrence Andrew Fernandez says:

    I first learned about Star Wars when I was still in grade school. I was rummaging through our old Betamax tape collections when I found one which says “A New Hope”. I popped it in the player and that’s how I got to know the saga. Up to now, I’m thankful for being curious that day for I wouldn’t have discovered the way of the Jedi.

  73. Jelina Tudio says:

    Me and my brother first saw Star Wars when it was introduced it to us by our parents. My parents loved watching movies and Star Wars was one of their favorites. The first one we saw was Star Wars: A New Hope and then the Empire Strikes Back and then the Return of the Jedi. We were so amazed by the story, characters and the technology..everything about it is amazing because it was different and because of that we became a fan of it. When we heard about another episode of Star Wars back in 1999 we were happy and excited because we thought that the 4-6 was the last one. Back then Star Wars was our joy and one of our favorites up until now it still is.

  74. Jan Ralph Perez says:

    I was four years old when my parents played “Return of the Jedi” on the Betamax in their bedroom and all my elder cousins showed up and watched the show at our house. I didn’t understand the story but was fascinated by all the starfighter jets zipping about in outer space. I turned over one of the chairs and pretended that it was my X-Wing fighting Imperial spaceships, and zipping all over the cosmos.

  75. I was in grade school and I bough Star Wars Comic Books in a garage sale!

    Mentioned the contest in a blog:

  77. […] a comment on the giveaway post about the first time you heard about “Star Wars”. It doesn’t have to be about the film, it […]

  78. Deniece Liza says:

    The first time I “heard” about Star Wars was the first time I watched the first Star Wars film. I don’t remember how old I was but I remember watching it at home, on a VCR. My cousin (who then lived next door to us) and I decided to watch it with my dad. I didn’t understand what was happening but I know that I liked the robots. Until now, I still love R2D2 which I thought was cool when I was a kid.

  79. JD says:

    Hearing the annoying screams of my cousins as they make a fool out of themselves copying the moves in the film prompted my introduction to the widely popular movie franchise of history!

  80. @BomberMerc says:

    Well, I already had an R2D2 plush pillow when I was 4. And this was before Lucas decided to remaster the original trilogy. Goes to show that I’m getting old. 🙂

  81. Stephanie says:

    The earliest memory I have of Star Wars is this Darth Vader mask/helmet that sits quietly, unnoticed, on one part of our study area back home at Bacolod. My dad apparently bought it when he and my mom went to Disneyland years ago. He bought that mask and the Star Wars trilogy in VHS. Yup, he is a fan. 😉

  82. camille quiambao says:

    The first time you heard about “Star Wars” is when I attended a costume party when I was a HS freshman and one of the upper class men wore a Darth Vader costume.

  83. Johanna Lee says:

    I first heard about star wars back in the mid 80s from my family.. I think I saw it in our tv but I can’t remember the plot at all. It’s the prequels that I remember more now.. And I have a strange obsession with darth vader now.. So cool!

  84. Richmond Lucas says:

    I remember hearing about Star Wars as a kid. My mom used to pop any of the first three movies on our betamax whenever I was restless. Have been a big fan ever since.

  85. Jinet says:

    When I was a kid, first heard about Star Wars from my older siblings. I still don’t understand it then. But now, hubby and I use to watch it over & over again.

  86. Shabby says:

    The first time I heard about Star Wars was from my parents. My parents and I would sometimes watch movies in the afternoon. I remember one of them was Star Wars, although I don’t recall which one we watched. I was too young to understand what the heck was going on, but it was cool enough that it’s one of the very few movies I remember from my childhood and during the glory days of Betamax.

    I blogged about this giveaway with my answer (as above) here — http://www.hyukta.net/journals-and-a-2012-planner/ and posted a tweet — https://twitter.com/#!/hyukta/status/136520523348844544

    I should have four points. How do we know that we have been entered in the draw?

  88. Edwin Arceo says:

    Oh, I should say five. 😎

  89. admin says:

    Everything will be counted efficiently. Good luck!

  90. matt says:

    I was about 3 or 4 years old when we first watched a star wars movie. I think I slept through the whole thing except for the ewoks part. haha The movie was too long for my toddler brain. 😛
