#DAPsMagicTFA: A Tweet-Along of the Star Wars VII Blu-“Rey”

A couple nights ago, @mr_daps and the crew had the extreme geeky privilege of being some of the first people to watch Star Wars Ep. VII on Blu-ray from the comfort of the DAPs Studios. Naturally, we took to Twitter with the hashtag #DAPsMagicTFA to share our reactions to the film via live-tweet. And, as always happens when you put a group of geeks in the same room, things got …entertaining, to say the very least.

Here are a few of our highlights from the evening, as shared by @mr_camjaxn, @DAPsMurray, @Caitiebear13, @lauramarie08, @ladivajenny, and of course, the masterful @mrdaps himself!

So, of course, we all had a strong reaction as soon as we pulled that vacuum-sealed plastic off of the packaging.

Now that we were no longer constrained to theater etiquette, which normally doesn’t allow for excitable geek comparisons, we got to work making ALL the cross-references.

And oh, don’t get us going on all the Hamilton references. The fact that @Lin_Manuel wrote a song for the Cantina scene didn’t hurt, either.

Now that we’ve had a little time to sit on our feelings for the characters in the film, watching them again brought some stuff out.

As with any film, if you watch it enough times, you catch some weird stuff. Now that we were free to share our thoughts aloud, some interesting observations surfaced.

Give it enough time, and the DAPs Crew gets wonky. Here were some of our more random thoughts.

We had a great time, and can’t wait to have everyone enjoy the movie in their own homes (with the awesome special features as well!). If you’d like to do your own live-tweet, add to the fun by using #DAPsMagicTFA, and be sure to let us know in the comments below!

Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens hits stores April 5th, 2016. ‘Til then, good luck, and may the Force be with you.
