"a fondness that, to be honest, is firmly anchored in the Empire Strikes Back"
Speak for yourself. I love Empire, but what made me a lifelong Star Wars fan was the joy, optimism, humor and excitement of ANH!!
While I worry about parents taking young kids to this, I saw lots of young kids at all 3 LOTR movies, and they were PG -13. I think there will be some backlash, but if the film delivers, it will soon pass.
As far as kids having nightmares about Anikin burning, I think that's OK. I would point out to my child that Anilkin was greedy and made selfish choices, that's why he burned. These movies have always been designed as moral guides.
