Kids, in general, are not turned on by SW.
You'd bite your tongue if you saw my 2 1/2 year old son and 5 year old daughter completely captivated this past weekend watching Empire Strikes Back. They watched ROTJ on Sunday and then wanted to watch ESB again! Even let them play with my beatup old 1979 Millennium Falcon, you know the old diecase Hasbro stuff that a long time ago were made in the good ol US of A
There is something about SW, at least the originals that can be timeless if it's passed down. My kids love it but are a bit young for the whole thing, I skip over the Wampa and Rancor, etc. and no way are the watching ROTS!
To circle back, I have to say I was very excited at the thought that my kids will get to be a part of the opening night energy after dad stood in line for 16 hours and see all the nerds dressed up and cheering. Wait, this is going to be weird, there will be no 20th Century Fox drum up!
