Epic Star Wars Dadfail

So I've already ruined the first kid by showing her Star Wars way too early, and she freaked out at the spooky cantina scene, and has never come back. K2's more into it, though.

I believe in Rod Hilton's Machete Order for viewing Star Wars: IV, V, II, III, VI. But we just haven't ever gotten around to buying the prequels, and so the no one's seen past Empire Strikes Back yet.

Which I completely forgot when I, in an adrenalin rush, showed K2 the new Star Wars VII trailer.

Cut to Darth's mangled mask. "WAIT, HE DIES??"

Hear the voiceover. "WHO HAS A SISTER?? IS THAT LUKE? WHOSE SISTER IS HE TALKING ABOUT??"

WHOA MINDBLOWING GIRLS UPDATE: OK, DT reader Kelli just blew my mind and but the whole Machete Order thing into question by sending a link to Amy's discussion of girls and Star Wars and Episode I. Can having a female character do more than swoon, get pregnant and die overcome the embarrassing minstrel show that is Jar-Jar Binks and the shaved Ewok blight that is young Annikin? I believe it can. Amazing.
