Ciocon told BuzzFeed the franchise was a big part of her childhood.
"It was a source of joy, inspiration, and occasionally a means of escape," she said.
When Ciocon met her future husband, she said their mutual love for the films "deepened" their relationship.
"We bonded over a lot of things; Star Wars was a wonderful addition," she said. "We invested in our own lightsabers. Now they're at the center of our dresser. When we found out they were making Episode 7, we knew we had to go to opening day."
