I waited for him to see the movies (we’re about to watch Rogue One after I post this leaving The Last Jedi the only one for us to all see)
I’ve been excited for him to watch Star Wars, but also wanted to wait till he was old enough to really ‘get it’. (He had..and she will..watched and loved the star wars lego movies and other various animated star wars things, but other than Back To The Future (and 2 and 3) been able to sit through a blah-blah-blah grown up movie…like superhero movies.
It was time to complete his training. <- See what I did there? He watched the first trilogy without any tears. The first scene he cried at was the same scene me and his mommy were watching (AGAIN) when we realized 'ok, this pregnancy thing is real!' [spoiler alert] When Ani was leaving his mom. It was quite interesting seeing him sad-crying from a movie, up till now they had been 'weee, happy, yay!' movies. The other parts were when anakin's mom died, when anakin destroyed the sand people and younglings, when he found out kylo ren was hans father, when kylo killed him, and when people on the planets saw the lasers coming at them. They are some pretty hardcore movies at points for the kids, but he's all in!
