February 3, 1959 and February 9, 1964. The day the music died and the date it was reborn on the Ed Sullivan Show, both days burned into the collective memories of pop culture fanatics everywhere. But what about May 25, 1977?
If you were a teenager then chances are you felt the earth shift. It was the day Star Wars opened, kicking off a cultural phenomenon that continues to this day.

C-3PO, Riz Ahmed, star of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on his childhood love of the franchise, the father of the light sabre Roger Christian and Pablo Hidalgo, the ultimate Star Wars fan and keeper of the myths as part of the Lucasfilm Story Group.
