Talking to Your Kids About Star Wars

Because no one should live in a world where Han didn't shoot first.

The gang at Asylum have prepared a PSA:

Here are some sobering facts about the world today: Every day, millions of kids go to sleep having never been introduced to Chewbacca, and, worse, countless more think Greedo shot first.

We here at Asylum want to make sure you and your child have an open and healthy conversation about Jar Jar and the differences between a “good trilogy” and an “uh-oh trilogy.”

“Because no one should live in a world where Han didn’t shoot first.”

  1. Is there a link for the PSA?

  2. Nevermind… My bad. I saw the video and thought it was an ad,

  3. Franklin says:

    In all “seriousness”, we’ve basically taken this approach – our son watched episodes 4-6 first. And yes, I’m a bad person because he already knew that Darth was Luke’s father. But we’ve now finished episode 1 and I’m proud to report he doesn’t seem to give a shit about Jar Jar Binks.

    /But what about the Clone Wars? He loves that stuff.

  4. Neil Hudelson says:

    Has anyone on here watched the clone wars and other cartoons in the Star Wars universe? After episodes 1 and 2, I couldn’t bring myself to watch any more–I stick with 4 through 6 exclusively.

    But I was always curious if they had any merit…
