This is a letter that was written to a family with younglings that are quite interested in whether The Force Awakens is appropriate for them.
I was very happy to be able to see the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens last night with my two boys who are ages 10 and 14. Together, we watch a lot of Star Wars movies and cartoons because it is a good story with interesting characters and exciting battles.
The new movie is just as exciting. There are lots of new characters and aliens that make it really fun. Rey, the young lady who seems to be the center of the movie, is a clever person that has lived on her own in the desert for many years. She doesn’t complain about how harsh it is to live there, but she hopes for the day when she will be rescued.
