I was 3 years old when I saw it in 77, so it's practically embedded in my DNA. Ever since The Phantom Menace came out, I get all the spoilers I can before seeing a Star Wars film so I can process and get comfortable with the things I don't like about it before going into the theater. Prevents me from fixating while watching and allows me to just enjoy the ride. That said, I won't speak of Jedi any further. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone. Plus, I'm not a good rapper
That said, HURRY UP AND SEE IT! I was not comfortable at first with the spoilers I read but absolutely loved the movie.

I was 2nd in line for "Return of the Jedi" in 1983. (My friend was first.) I had (probably still do) all of the comics from 1977 to 1983ish. With that said, I haven't seen a Star Wars movie since that abomination called Episode 1, the Phantom Menace. I would be excited if they make movies of the Timothy Zahn trilogy with Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Araman, I don't think that's gonna happen. It could but they've over-written the stuff that takes place after ROTJ. However, there is an animated Star Wars series called "Star Wars: Rebels". The show takes place about 5 years before ANH. The show is on it's mid-season break of it's 4th and final season. They did reintroduce Thrawn to canon in season 3 and he is still alive and searching for the Rebels at present. This season, they reintroduced his bodyguard/assassin Ruhk the Nohgri. The show airs on Disney XD. I think it's on all the major streaming services as well...at least until Disney launches their own streaming service later this coming year.
Raiders of the Lost Ark and the original Star Wars trilogy remain my favorite movies. The Star Wars prequels began a slide down into ignominy, the "revised" versions and those movies made in the 21st Century under New Management are crap to me.
