Little Boy's Reaction To Seeing Star Wars For The First Time Is Joy Unconfined (Video)


This little boy's reaction to seeing Star Wars for the first time is pure magic.

In fact, it reminds those of us of a certain age how we felt when we first set eyes on Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo and Chewbacca for the first time: excited beyond delirium.

In this wonderful video, dad Sam B shows his three-year-old son James the original 1977 blockbuster (it's now called Star Wars IV: A New Hope, for the unitiated).

The toddler's reaction is joy unconfined; an outpouring of happiness to warm the coldest of cockles.

When Sam first puts the movie on, James asks: "What's this, daddy?"

But as soon as the theme song starts, he declares: "I like it!"

And he likes it A LOT.

James goes wide-eyed with wonder, pointing at the screen, babbling about 'Darth Vaders', 'Storm Woopers' and 'a People'.

His reaction is so sweet it has amassed more than 180,000 views on You Tube.

Oh, to be a kid again!

I wonder if us Star Wars veterans are going to erupt into such wonderment when we get to see Episode VII: The Force Awakens for the first time when it comes out in December 2015....
