Introduced my 7 year boy to starwars (new hope)

Post by poncho »

Even though hes 7 hes running along at 4 years old mentally.

Long has he seen me collecting 'old rusty figures'
He recognises the starwars logo and dark vader and he recognises laser swords. It's time I thought..... It's time to show him starwars 1977!

He loved it! :D He jumped on feet when the ships were shooting. He told the old man dark vader was too powerful for him and that he should go back to the desert and stay in his cave where its safe(wise words). He also loved the wistling blue tin robot. He wondered why the princess didnt wear a crown. He asked if dark Vader had a nasty cold as he couldn't breath properly.

Ahhh the innocence you can shove modern day Pixar emotional twaddle. Laser swords and spaceships are where it's really at to capture the imagination of a little boy.

Wish I could relive starwars through young eyes.

Hang on I think I just did. Roll on Empire
