Counting down...10 days to go!

As you might probably guess, I am a Star Wars geek. (I'm also a huge Star Trek fan...except for Voyager. Well, then again, I would not mind seeing what was under 7 of Nine's jumpsuit.). The final movie in the series is scheduled for release on the 19th of May....just about every where, EXCEPT Japan! As you can guess, I'm pissed off about that. According to the Star Wars web site:

The circle will at last be complete when Star Wars: Episode III is released to theaters in the United States and Canada, with a near-simultaneous release around the world, on Thursday, May 19, 2005. In Japan, Episode III will be released in July, the traditional month for Star Wars premieres. Exact information for other countries outside of the U.S. and Canada will be coming shortly, so keep checking for full details as May 2005 approaches.

In North America, May has been the traditional release date for Star Wars films since the first movie in 1977. The North American release dates for the previous films in the Star Wars saga are:

Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope - May 25, 1977
Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back - May 21, 1980
Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi - May 25, 1983
Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace - May 19, 1999
Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones - May 16, 2002

Looks like I'll have to travel to the U.S. soon. July is too long to wait.
