We Need To Talk, Son . . . But Not Today

As mentioned before, my 5-year-old son is more than passingly familiar with the Star Wars universe, but there are gaps in his knowledge.  For instance, he’s watched numerous episodes of The Clone Wars, so he knows who Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka are, and he certainly understands that the title “Darth” is a Sith title, but he’s shown little interest so far in sitting down to watch the full-length movies, so some of those knowledge gaps are . . . significant.

Case in point:

Last night I was mentioning how certain sections of the Internet have exploded following the season 2 finale of Star Wars Rebels because it featured the long-awaited face-off between Darth Vadar and . . . ahem, Anakin Skywaker’s former padawan, Ahsoka.  Having watched a clip of the encounter, I was describing it to Lala and L’s Mother when L, wanting to be included in the storytelling, chimed in, “And then Anakin came to help her.”

I had no idea what to say to that.

I still don’t.
