It hurts me, really hurts me that my son thinks of Anakin Skywalker as a hero. His only real exposure to Star Wars has been through “The Clone Wars” cartoons so he has no reference for Storm Troopers as bad guys or Anakin Skywalker as the best villain of all times.

Maybe that is a good thing. Maybe when he finally watches the abominations that Lucas calls the first 3 Star Wars movies (which all of the rest of us call the prequels and would rather just forget) he will be deeply moved by Anakin’s decent to the dark side rather than just mildly annoyed at his acting skills
