How do you bridge the gen­er­a­tion gap? In my house­hold – along with mil­lions of other house­holds around the world – the an­swer can be found in Star Wars. As a high-heel wear­ing and non-ath­let­i­cally in­clined mum to two su­per­hero-ob­sessed and karate-kick­ing boys, it’s not of­ten we find com­mon ground in our pre­ferred en­ter­tain­ment. And it’s rarer still to dis­cover a film that shaped my own child­hood as much as it does theirs, some three decades later. But thanks to the re­newed fas­ci­na­tion in all things Star Wars due to the new tril­ogy, the orig­i­nal films from the late ’70s and early ’80s con­tinue to en­chant Gen­er­a­tion Z. All of which makes this week’s cover star, Mark “Luke Sky­walker” Hamill, a rare fig­ure who can truly claim to ap­peal to fans of all ages.
