Freed Iranian Captive Wants "To See The Star Wars Movie"

Apparently spending 2 years in a notorious Iranian Prison does not stop the quest for "The Force."

The reporter from The Washington Post named Jason Rezaian released a statement after he was rescued in a prisoner exchange with Iran on Sunday.

“I want everyone to know that I’m feeling fine, and I feel lucky to be here at a place where I can get such terrific care," says Rezainan, but he does relay what he particularly wants to do next.

The Washington Post shares his statement, saying:

"For now, I want to catch up with what’s been going on in the world, watch a Warriors game or two, and see the Star Wars movie.”

This guy has the right idea.

Hey, Star Wars Cast / J.J. Abrams, maybe you should send him some autographed swag?!
