When Star Wars was released in 1977 it went on to serve as the highest grossing film of all time (until ET knocked it out in ’82). Meaning, a ton of people went to see it.
Now, fast forward 30+ years and if you attend a Star Wars convention you are very much considered a geek. So, what will be the new “geek” in the year 2025? What popular movie, game, or activity that is around today will people be having mega-conventions for? What will geeks of the future obsess over? What will our kids be writing about in GeekDad then?
Well let’s take a peek into the time machine!
