Whether you love or hate the first of the Star Wars Prequels, you’re probably going enjoy his reactions – they kind of have something for everyone.
He was actually really nervous about seeing it for the first time. He knows the whole story and all the characters, but he also knows that tons of people really hate the Prequels. I’m not a big fan either, but honestly I’d watch Jedi working at the post office if they used their lightsabers from time to time.
His reaction to The Phantom Menace definitely enhanced my view of the movie. See what you think!

Watching the Star Wars movies with my son has been an amazing journey for me as a father and as a fan. I never would have imagined that seeing his awed responses and his deep investment would expand my appreciation and, astonishingly, even my understanding of the films.
His joy is infectious, and judging from the thousands of comments spread over all of the reaction videos I’ve posted so far, I am definitely not the only whose love for Star Wars has been heightened by seeing his journey through the Star Wars universe.
May the Force be with you, always!
