My Thoughts:
This was now the first time, that I have shown my son this movie. He is going to be seven years old soon. I "prepared" him for Star Wars with the Nintendo Switch game "Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga". We started the game with the chapter for this movie (the order of the story how it is supposed to be watched :) ). We finished recently the first part of the game which covers this movie. And he is a big fan of the Star Wars LEGO sets.
So I tried to show him this movie in the hope he will enjoy it. He managed it in one sitting :)
And he enjoyed it the whole way through. And I also still enjoy this movie quite a lot.
