To celebrate the launch of It’s A Stampede!, every day for the next year I will be presenting a totally informative, yet totally useless fact under the banner heading: ‘On this day in geekdom’.

Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

July 21st – On this day in 1978, 14 months after it first arrived in US cinemas, Star Wars is re-released in theatres. The re-release includes an additional line of dialogue, from C-3PO, that was not included in the original release. This is just one of the many additions and revisions that will take place in the Star Wars Saga over the years.

More tomorrow…
