I plan on introducing my 5yo nephew to the franchise over the holidays. What kind of reactions have any of you received when doing something similar? Any particular movies or characters that stand out as being favorites?

I did the same thing years and years ago. He liked the prequels more than the original films, and now its the opposite since he has grown up. He also is extremely opinionated and thinks the Last Jedi was the worst movie ever made because of what they did to Luke. Quite a turn to be honest since he liked Hayden Anakin and now Luke is his favorite and the unaltered OT.

My niece on the other hand really likes the Disney trilogy. And Rey. Really likes Mando and Baby Yoda, and Clone Wars and Ahsoka. She doesn’t really care about Luke, Han or Leia or any other Boomer characters. I explained its Gen X not boomer.

LOL Yeah, my nephew liked them well enough and has asked to rewatch them since, but he actually watched The Mandalorian first and was hooked on that, so trying to explain why those characters weren’t in the films was a bit of a challenge. We ended up watching the OT and Force Awakens, as I felt like he’d probably get the most out of those, and he had a good time. That’s all that matters in the end. 😃
