Fresno’s Benjamin Salisbury isn’t just a passive fan of the “Star Wars’ world. He often dressed in black attire as a staff officer in the local Darth Vader’s 501st Legion.

At a recent convention in Tulare, Salisbury talked about his early memories of “Star Wars” and his feelings about the upcoming movie.
