Today marks the Return of the Jedi's 30 years anniversary!

It is by today, May 25th 2013, exactly 30 years since Star Wars episode VI Return of the Jedi launched at the Theatres. 30 years since the first Star Wars Trilogy reached an end. 30 years Since Darth Vader died by saving the Gallaxy. 30 years since the Galactic Empire fell and the war between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance ended.

I'd like to know, how many here watched the premier of Star Wars ep. VI Return of the Jedi when it first arrived in may 25th 1983?
For those younger fans, when did you first see this amazing film?
How did you spend this day today and (if you lived then) 30 years ago?

Do tell.
And may the force be with you all.

I wouldn't be born for a few more months when it came out. Although my mom did see it in theaters so I guess I was there.

Happy Birthday ol' boy! Your looking great.

I'll always love Return of the Jedi. It a great film in it's own right and probally my personal favorite from the saga. I remember seeing it when I just turned seven and right after having to go to Burger King to get a special Star Wars cup.

It's the first movie I have any real memory of ever seeing in the cinema, and as a result it had an ENORMOUS impact on my entire life. The original Star Wars Trilogy as a whole remains one of my very favourite things in all of science fiction, and while The Empire Strikes Back is without a doubt the BEST of the bunch, Jedi will ALWAYS BE my personal favourite.

I was born in '92, so unfortunately well over a decade too early to have seen it premiere. However, I grew up with the original trilogy; A New Hope was the first movie I ever remember seeing.

Star Wars as a whole blew me away, stimulating my still growing imagination and has continued to inspire me since, and will continue to inspire me henceforth.

You and me both, brother. I was also born in 92, I also watched a New Hope first (Was 6 or 8 years old when I watched it) and I also became a fan of the franchise as a whole.

Fun story; I actually discovered Star Wars as a kid with Return of the Jedi. When I was five (in 1995), I came up to my dad with the VHS and asked "Papa, je peux regarder le Retour du Jedi?" But as I still didn't know anything about Star Wars back then, I pronounced "Jedi" the same way I pronounce "Jeudi" (Thursday) in French.

As for the original launch date in 1983, I had to be around -7 years old, I think. XD
