She's never seen Star Wars — and today she's tweeting all 17.5-hours' worth
CBC Arts associate producer joins fans watching all 7 films, marathon-style
CBC Arts associate producer Lise Hosein has never seen any of the Star Wars films — maybe it's been on in a room where she's been, but she's never paid much attention. So when the chance came up for her to watch all seven instalments including Star Wars: The Force Awakens — that's nearly 17 and a half hours of lightsaber battles, bleeping droids and awkward brother-sister sexual tension — she tentatively stepped up to the plate. "What's the difference between a Wookiee and an Ewok?," she asked, with tongue only somewhat in cheek. May the force, and stamina, be with her.
