in Entertainment, Events, Star Wars

Michael Aiello is a huge Star Wars fan. His father is directly responsible for this. . .

My love for Star Wars was completely brought on by my father. He bought every toy that existed before I was born and I had these wonderful ships and characters waiting for me when I got a little older. All which I still own to this day btw.

I remember listening to the soundtrack albums till the record wore thin. Star Wars has been in my blood, like many of us, since birth.

I have successfully handed down my love for these modern day fairy tales to my son. Who just about every night as he drifts to sleep, quietly hums John Williams’ brilliant “Force Theme”.

I intend to make his very first Star Wars theatrical experience a memory that he will hopefully keep with him just as I have with my father taking me.
