Disclosure: Thank you to General Mills for #sponsoring today’s story and inspiring me to share my love of Star Wars with my children!

Who is your favorite Star Wars character that you wanted to be? Han Solo, seemed to always be my favorite in the original first three films. I don’t know if it was cause his best friend was a Wookiee, or that the Millennium Falcon was the best ship in space. I don’t know, I grew up loving and adoring Star Wars. The adventures that they brought me as a yongster fueled my inner space hero. The other thing that fueled my inner body was a variety of Big G cereals. There were many days when I would sit and enjoy a bowl of cereal and play with a couple of Star Wars action figures.

For a limited time, Big G is teaming up with Lucas Films and inspiring people like you to create Edible Episodes with Star Wars collectible pins.

You can look for the collectible pens in specially marked Big G cereals starting now and until supplies last (end of December 2013).
