  1. Something my sweetheart and I have definitely decided we are going to do when we have kids: my cousin's little girl barely knew any words, but she would flip up the hood of her hoodie and proudly proclaim "JEDI!"

  2. I had to stop A New Hope (the digitally remastered/stuff added ones) to explain that Han shot first and why that's OK.

    • Personally, I think George Lucas, even though he's the director and all, had no right to change that! Han was a bad-ass hero in the original and that's how it should be.

  3. You guys are idiots. Aside from Jar Jar being the worst character ever made, No one knows if Han shot first because the only footage was greedo being killed.

  4. This one is more great if your son is a boy. But i don't like that my daughter gets involve with this star wars world. I don't it to have an effect of feeling herself as a boy.

    • I’m a 24 year old girl and I adored Star Wars as a kid and watching Star Trek with my Dad was a great way for us both to bond and share.

      Don’t feel you have to deny your daughter that because you feel it’s “unfeminine”; I still played with my Barbies as well as stormtroopers and jedi knights as a kid and I am still a girly girl at heart.

      Plus all geek girls love Princess Leia, she’s a great feisty role model. :)

      • What WitchyRed said. I'm a dude who played with my sister's toys and she with mine when we were kids (no porno comments, thank you). We're both straight and well-adjusted adults now, so please stop your sexism before it affects your kids, Mr. Douglas.

        Leia Organa's a pretty good role-model for kids of all genders.
