We’d planned it for weeks, but I’d been thinking for years about my little son seeing Star Wars for his first time.
I’d been getting a little anxious with the swiftly approaching release of The Force Awakens. I wanted my little lad to see A New Hope and its original cast of characters — Luke, Han, Vader and crew — before he learned any more friggin’ spoilers, or got hyper interested the new movie before he’d had the chance to start at the beginning. The proper beginning!
I figured his reactions were going to be adorable, so I videoed us watching the entire film and edited it into this short video. I also knew he was going to ask a bazillion questions, so I did an online survey about how many:

May the Force be with you and your kids, always!
