for my age group

I haven't watched the entire thing yet, but if you've got two hours and nineteen minutes to spare, go watch the documentary "Star Wars Begins." It's a fan-fueled retrospective with voiceover from the actors and from others behind the scenes, subtitled with some amusing comments and interesting trivia. Example: James Earl Jones was paid $7000 to be the voice of Vader in the first film. (That segment also includes on-set audio of Vader, i.e., we hear the muffled voice of David Prowse, with his English accent, emanating from Vader during the first strangulation scene on the blockade runner.) The film itself provides the narrative structure for the documentary. Have fun!
