What would you say if you were invited to The Press Junket of the year? Of course you say yes!!! I’m on my way to LA today to attend the Star Wars Press Junket where I’ll be interviewing my all time favorite actor Harrison Ford. Can you imagine what that’s going to be like? I can’t. What would you ask him? If you have any ideas PLEASE leave them in the comments I remember a LONG time ago he was in an interview on The View and they asked him if he wears Briefs or Whitie Tighties and he was like, what are Whitie Tighties? It was super funny and I know the answer so I can’t ask him that. AND Not only is that exciting, it’s also exciting to get to interview other actors from The Force Awakens, the director J.J. Abrams and the President of Lucas Film Kathleen Kennedy. J.J. Abrams is one of my favorite directors so I’m super excited to meet him too.
Star Wars has been a favorite movie series for me for such a long time. I can’t even remember the first time I watched it. My mom and dad weren’t really big fans even though my dad dressed up as Han Solo for Halloween one year and surprisingly he looked a lot like Harrison Ford. He still does a little, what do you think?
Hmm, maybe not. But back in the day!!!! I really got into Star Wars right before college and then during college. I had friends who also loved Star Wars we would have all night long trilogy movie nights. We would play Star Wars Trivial Pursuit and I would lose. It was hard, really hard. My student id in college had my photo on it for about 10 minutes. I found this photo here and cut the head off and pasted it in place of my head. So for all four years I was Han Solo.
Now we are of course raising our children to be Star Wars fans. They have seen every single movie, every episode of the Clone Wars and Rebels. They know about the world of Star Wars than I ever did, I bet they could pass Star Wars Trivia Pursuit. SO they are super jealous that I’m going to this press junket.
I’m also going to be doing a Press Day for Zootopia and interviewing the film makers. Do you guys have any animation questions for me?
After that I’m going to do a set visit for Agent Carter. (you know I’m a Marvel fan). Then we also have plans to learn more about The Bachelor and Galavant. Oh wow it’s going to be a busy couple of days but I’m sure the euphoria of Star Wars will keep energized. So follow along!
