Recently, a few of my friends with children have grappled with a difficult question: What's the right age to introduce children to Star Wars? How young it too young to appreciate the hero's journey Luke embarks on, or the eternal conflict of good versus evil? Is Emperor Palpatine electrocuting Luke with lightning from his fingers too intense for some kids? Is Jar Jar Binks ever appropriate for sentient beings of any age, ever, anywhere?
Thankfully, parents still looking for guidance can turn to this PSA for advice.
In all seriousness, it's been interesting to observe how the children of my acquaintance respond to Luke and Han and Darth Vader. (With great enthusiasm, for the most part.) So S4 readers who are parents: At what age did you (or do you plan to) screen Star Wars for your kiddos?
