Writer Watches ‘Star Wars’ for the First Time, Live Tweets It

Sarah Gailey is a writer, and on the night of December 25th, while the rest of us were playing with our latest toys and arguing with our relatives, she made a revelation on Twitter:

That’s right! In the midst of Star Wars mania, barely a week after The Force Awakens released, Sarah was brave enough to announce to the world that she hasn’t seen a single flick from the saga.

That’s ok Sarah, The Phantom Menace wasn’t for Star Wars fans either.

So she undertook the task of marathoning the Original Trilogy over the course of two days, and thankfully for us, she live tweeted the experience. The result was glorious.

Immediately it becomes clear that Sarah was watching a very different movie than the rest of us…

Yes! Space Voldemort takes center stage, and Sarah follows him on his adventure to capture those dastardly space criminals, led by Space Indiana Jones, some whiny brat named Luke, and his companions Gold Robot Man and the Space Trash Can.

Sarah’s hatred for Luke becomes the absolute best part of this adventure, as he just becomes more and more selfish and a terrible friend…

Of course, Star Wars is a tale full of twists and turns, and sometimes Sarah’s observations cause concern for those of us who know the ultimate outcomes.

Following the tweets is like watching a child grow up. You see her fall in love…

You see her get her heart broken by disappointment…

And, in the end, you learn stuff from her that you never before realized. Like the fact that your hero may actually not be the best role model…

Experience Sarah’s full live tweet in its entirety. The best parts were left out of this story, so you have a lot to look forward to. It gets NSFW at times, so be prepared for that, but quit being such a Luke about it and just check it out:
