My husband and I are huge Star Wars fans. We’re not totally fanatical about the movie series some some die hard fans are, but we do love the series and watch it every chance we get. We can pretty much talk right along with the characters in the movie and often quote lines from the movie.
We have even gone so far as to name two of our cats after Star Wars characters. We have a cat named Anakin and another named Padmé. Our dog was almost named Obi after Obi Wan Kenobi.
Coming to theaters is the first film in the series, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace like you never have before. It’s going to be in 3D!
I saw parts VI, V and VI in the theaters when I was a young girl. I never saw the prequels in the theaters. I think it would be pretty cool to see them on the big screen too. And in 3D! I can’t imagine how awesome the movie would be. I already love all the movies. I just think seeing them in 3D would be beyond cool.
This February, General Mills Big G cereals want to help celebrate the 3D launch by featuring collectible Star Wars pens in-pack of participating cereals. They are fun pens too. We have six of them – Anakin, Obi Wan, Yoda, Jar Jar, Yoda and Darth Maul.
There are eight exclusive Star Wars pens to collect including the ones I have (mentioned above) and Queen Amidala, R2D2 and C3PO.
You can find these pens inside participating cereals which include Cinnamon Toast Crunch (12.8 oz.), Lucky Charms(11.5 oz. – My favorite!), Reese’s Puffs (13 oz.), Cheerios (14 oz. – a family favorite), and Cookie Crisp (11.25 oz).
Each Big G cereal is made with whole grain and is an excellent source of calcium, so your younglings will have everything they need to start the day off right!
May the force and a tasty breakfast be with you.
The move is already in theaters (it opened on February 10, 2012).

- 2 Boxes of Big G cereal
