So what’s your favorite moment of the Skywalker saga (on screen or off-screen)? Let us know in the comments below, and you could WIN this Blu-ray copy of STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. For me, I can’t narrow it down to one moment, it’s a tie. First is my Dad taking me to see the original Star Wars in 1977 in the theater, and getting sucked into this world as the opening Star Destroyer ominiously crept overhead. Second, taking my two daughters and wife to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the theater on opening day. This was the first time we could all watch a Star Wars movie in the theater, and I was thrilled to see my kids as excited as I was nearly 40 years ago.

Bonus material includes a feature-length, making-of documentary, which goes behind the scenes with the cast and filmmakers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and explores the legacy of the Skywalker saga.
