Our series of interviews From Different Points of View highlights Star Wars fans from across the world and allows them to tell you about Star Wars fandom from their point of view and how it has influenced their lives and the direction it has taken them.

This week’s point of view is Jason McNally.

When did your love of Star Wars begin and what was it that drew you to it?

1977, Mom took me to see it when I was a little kid and I was instantly hooked!

How has Star Wars influenced you?

It’s about hope and faith and standing strong against injustice and tyranny. I have taken that into my life always.

What is your most memorable Star Wars moment?

There’s been a few but I’d have to say that meeting Anthony Daniels at Celebration V was pretty exciting for me!

How do you celebrate your fandom, do you for example collect anything, cosplay or have a tattoo?

I have a collection that is the admiration of my friends. I have figures, POPs, props, and I also have a decent art collection.

What’s the best part of being a member of Star Wars communities?

I have made some of the best friends I could ever imagine knowing.

What are your next plans for Star Wars?

I’d love to write for The Mandalorian. I have my tickets for Celebration Anaheim, and my girlfriend and I are doing Disneyland the same week so it’s a week of Star Wars! Soon as Disney+ is available, I’m signing up.

What are you looking forward to from Lucasfilm Ltd and Star Wars in the future?

The Mandalorian!

Is there anything that hasn’t happened yet in Star Wars that you would like to see happen?

I want to see a story in a part of the galaxy we’ve never seen, where the inhabitants have no idea what a Jedi or the Empire is, but there are Force users and a great story!
