My 4-year-old has somehow developed an interest in Star Wars - wants to check out books from the library (currently reading about Yoda) and talk about BB8 and R2D2 and lightsabers.

I'll admit I've never seen the movies except the first of the original trilogy as an adult (I fell asleep) and the first of the new ones (Jar Jar Binks...ugh). But I'm open and a little excited at the prospect of getting into it even though it passed me by the first time.

My husband is itching to show at least the first movie of the original trilogy to our just-turned-4-year-old. It seems a little dark/violent but I'm not all that familiar with it. Common Sense Media says to wait until age 7. What do you think?
