Star Wars Memories (stories)….

Hello there,


I recently purchased another behind the scene / anecdotal Star Wars book.

This book was written by Craig Miller, a life-long Sci-fi fan who was lucky enough to work for Lucasfilm during the initial pre-production of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back.


He became the first Director of Fan Relations and instigated Bantha Tracks, the fan newsletter plus collated the Membership Kits sent out to fans.

Working with the talented people like Charles Lippincott and Gary Kurtz this book tell the story of marketing, a then unknown, product from a very young director to studios and fan’s who had never heard of Jedis’ or “The Force” and never imagined Wookiees or Yoda!


Craig’s book is a great read and page turner, at over 400+ pages it doesn’t feel heavy in anyway and there are lots of accompanying images from the production of the films and the marketing items brought on to sell Star Wars.

I love a non-fiction tale of how the films were brought to the big screen and the effort required by artistic individuals working towards a greater good.


Let me recommend you add it to your collection as soon as possible.

More Star Wars content….

Hello there,

It looks like we will be treated to more Star Wars this festive period with the release of “The Book of Boba Feet”.


Disney have announce that the show will start streaming December 29th on Disney+

As yet we don’t know when the story will start, will it be flashbacks to how Boba escaped the sarlacc, where he has been since the end of Return of the Jedi, will other Bounty Hunters appear and what is the end goal?

We will have to wait to see what the impending trailer and episodes brings….

Disneyland Paris – expansion?

Disneyland Paris expansion

Hello there,

Thanks for coming to the page…..please spread the word!

As a resident in the UK, I have followed but not yet visited Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at both Batuu East & West and was hoping that something like this would be built closer to me at Disneyland Paris.

Now the Galactic Star Cruiser, Halcyon, is due for launch in 2022, I thought, where are we at closer to home?

Up until the COVID pandemic there were concept designs and scant information released to say that Europe would get an expansion.


Sadly in the fall of 2021 it looks like the proposed “Star Wars Land” is now off the table, with only the Frozen & Marvel areas/lands breaking ground. Why? Who knows?


So, in this post, I thought I would upload the information I have to this point to show what could have been and what should have opened 2024/2025.

Proposed to be built as an extension in the Disney Studios backlot (South West), in the park. A scaled down version of what is located in the USA, included 1 ride, rumoured to be Rise of the Resistance plus a merchandise shop and restaurant.

It would have a themed waiting line with full size X-Wing fighter, no Millennium Falcon for Europe.

3d images have emerged and it would appear the ground has been broken for Frozen fans but not for Star Wars fans!

Maybe it will still happen?

Should we get something bigger and better?

Collecting is a big part of Star Wars. Ever since the earliest merchandise, fought over by an astute, George Lucas, from 20th Century Fox was release by Kenner in the US and Palitoy in the UK plus many others around the world we want it.

Since 1977/78 I have bought, been bought and gifted many items from across the range of items figures, vehicles, creatures to toothbrushes, flannels and earphones.

Although not every item I own, I have uploaded many images to the Collection section of the website. There you can look at Prequel / Original / Sequel trilogy items.
