Do you have to say "spoiler alert" when it's a movie trilogy that's been out for decades? Whatever. Spoiler alert.
We watched the original Star Wars trilogy today with the kids. It was awesome. So much fun to relive those moments through their eyes. When Darth Vader told Luke, "I am your father," I thought Claire's jaw was going to fall right off her face. She was completely stunned. And then Luke is screaming, "NOOOO! NOOOOOOO!" and she was mouthing it along with him. Her little mind was blown.
And then at the end of Return of the Jedi, when Vader saves Luke and then dies, Zach's heart was broken. He was so sad because "it was his father and now he's dead." He couldn't stop crying. Poor baby. He wanted him to be a good guy and live happily ever after, and that didn't happen. During the whole movie he kept asking, "Why isn't he going to live with his father?" Because in little boy land, fathers and sons belong together, no matter what. He's such a sweetie.
And apparently he just thanked God for the people who made the Star Wars movies when he was saying his bedtime prayer. My children are Teh Awesome.
