A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . .
Here talking about the original trilogy: Episode IV A New Hope, Episode V The Empire Strike Back and Episode VI The Return of the Jedi, not the later prequels. I think Star Wars is a rite of passage, most of the parents saw the original trilogy and blew their minds and they are now eager to share that magic to their kids.
A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to introduce 3 boys to Star wars (back then they were 4, 6 and 8 ) and I can tell with not doubt in my mind that those nights change their mind. The 3 of them felt in love with the movie and the characters specially Luke Skywalker and Wicket. For the younger there was only one part that really upset him, the trash compactor in Episode IV, beside that he watch the trilogy with no problem. Beware although, make your research and watch yourself the 6 movies before show it to them because they will ask a lot of questions of the past an future of the characters.
