Is a gigantic Star Wars fan.
It's not because of Princess Leia either. She loved the story of Darth Vader being good--then becoming evil--but then turning good at the end.
"He saved his son!" she always marvels. "He was mean, but Padme was right: there WAS still good in him."
When we went to Disney World, she HAD to do Jedi Academy. We waited in line for a LONG time, but it was worth it. Truly. (You can read about that experience here.)
She loved learning different moves with her lightsaber.
She especially loved when Darth Vader came out.
She's always loved Chewbacca:
And she's the kid at the park running around in a Darth Vader costume:
Some kids have told her, "Darth Vader is a BOY. You can't wear that." Natalie replies, "I can be whatever I want." Because she can. She understands Darth Vader was bad. But she also understands that he turned good at the very end.
So she'll be thrilled to see Star Wars: A Force Awakens on Christmas Day because yes, we bought 3D IMAX tickets.
She'll get to discover who Rey and Finn are. She'll see familiar characters. And we'll find out why Luke wasn't in the poster. ("I hope he didn't turn to the dark side. But if he did, maybe, MAYBE he'll remember how to be good like his Daddy...")
May the Force be with you.
