“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”This week, we visited El Capitan Theatre in the heart of Hollywood. This movie palace is currently showing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the second installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Joshua (2007), our newest Padawan, joined us for a blaster afternoon of fun!
During Joshua's visit to the legendary theatre, he received an exclusive tour of some of the original Star Wars costumes used in the movie, 'The Last Jedi'. And while the collection didn't include the costume of Joshua's favorite Star Wars character, Chewbacca, Joshua got pretty excited to see the Luke Skywalker costume worn by actor Mark Hamill.
The day's festivities also included a meeting and photo op with two Imperial Stormtroopers. Even though the Stormtroopers usually report to Supreme Leader Snoke, these two seemed happy to switch their alliance to Joshua for the afternoon. The day of fun was capped off with Joshua being able to select a toy at the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop located next door to the theatre, courtesy of the Disney Studio Tour.
Joshua is a big fan of Star Wars. He is an even bigger fan of anything baseball. He loves collecting baseball cards, knows numerous baseball facts and trivia, and of course, considers himself to be the Dodger's number one fan! He hopes to be a baseball player when he grows up. While he holds a slight interest in basketball, YouTube videos, and art classes, nothing would make Joshua happier than to eat, sleep, and breathe baseball all day and night...he's that obsessed!
When asked to describe himself, Joshua said, "I have some problems, but I'm a good kid." Jedi Master Yoda once said, "Always pass on what you have learned."
