The Film: Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith (2005)
The pitch to kids: It’s Star Wars. What didn’t get pitched?
The complaints: “Revenge of the Sith featured toys for young children as well as a Burger King toy giveaway and several other food promotions that clearly appealed to preschool children, despite George Lucas’ public statements that the film’s violence and dark themes were inappropriate for children under six,” announced the Children’s Advertising Review Unit.
What we really think they’re worried about: Kids wanting to take after Anakin Skywalker.
You know- emotional constipation, wooden acting, turning to the dark side. And making lava look like a playground.
