For Our Star Wars Stories, host Jordan Hembrough (Toy Hunter) travels across the United States talking to Star Wars fans about their unique journeys with the saga and its impact on their lives. Because Star Wars is such a cultural phenomenon that impacts people far beyond most other movies or brands, it results in interesting stories of inspiration and passion.
Mickey Capoferri, senior director of online content and programming at Lucasfilm and executive producer of Our Star Wars Stories describes it as “a celebration of the fans.” He goes on to say that “It’s a look at how Star Wars has inspired and excited people in different ways, and influenced them to do things that maybe they didn’t think they could do. … It has deeper meaning and creates a deeper inspiration than I think any other franchise does.”

It’s not a stretch to say that Star Wars is more than just a movie. It’s a cultural phenomenon. Parents and children, friends, and even strangers wearing Star Wars T-shirts can share Star Wars’ timeless story of hope together. But for some fans, that message has a lasting impact long after they leave the theater.
Jordan Hembrough (Toy Hunter), has teamed up with Lucasfilm to shine on a spotlight these fans in Our Star Wars Stories, a digital series premiering tomorrow (October 2, 2018) at 9 a.m. PT/ET on the official Star Wars YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook channels, as well as StarWars.com.
