Star Wars and General Mills #Giveaway

Challenge the boys at my house to naming something better than watching the epic first episode of the Star Wars Saga and watch their eyes roll in wonder until one of them spouts, “Watching it in 3D with your fellow Jedis, of course!” I remember going to the theaters as a child and watching the thrilling Podraces with delight and staying ‘inside the story’ right down to the final lightsaber battle. Now you can enjoy Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace like you never have before.
