But I may have underestimated its continued allure today. In the 1 minute video embedded below, a 3 year old girl summarizes the plot of Star Wars with surprising accuracy, and with the characteristically off-beat but insightful observations of a young child. (This video has already had more than 13 million hits on You Tube.)
If you don't have 90 seconds to watch it, here's some of what she says:
- On C3PO, "The shiny guy always worries..."
- On Obi-Wan Kenobi, "He keeps saying, 'Luke: learn how to do this little light up sword.'"
- On Darth Vader, "Don't talk back to Darth Vader... He'll getcha!"
