SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Star Wars The Force Awakens - COR­NETTO TRIL­OGY STAR, BIG SCREEN BROMANCER

The Star Wars tril­ogy. Even now it touches my life. I’m at a point now with a four-year-old son where we watched A New Hope to­gether and it was kind of amaz­ing. He sat there and watched the whole thing. My mum’s fam­ily were Welsh and so we spent a lot of time there, down on the west coast in Pem­brokeshire. I was there all sum­mer. We made camps on the river bank and played with our Star Wars fig­ures. Satur­day morn­ings we were al­lowed to go to a shop next to the cin­ema in fish­guard – one of those shops where you go in and think, oh it sells rock and post­cards and mugs with fish­guard on, but the more you go through there’s ac­tu­ally a sec­tion that sells Star Wars fig­ures. Ev­ery Satur­day we were there buy­ing Star Wars fig­ures. My ex­pec­ta­tion of what JJ is go­ing to do is tremen­dous. I had a meet­ing with him be­fore they started. We had lunch and he showed me round the sto­ry­boards. I could feel eight-year-old me do­ing a lit­tle spirit wee.
