Star Wars according to a 3 year old

Bad news for all those fans out there who think George Lucas is a complex genius. Turns out the whole plot of the original Star Wars film can be summed up neatly and accurately in 90 seconds — by a toddler. This one drinks juice and peruses a calendar while sharing her surprisingly deep insights on the various characters, like C3PO ("the shiny guy always worries") and Darth Vader ("he'll getcha!"). If only someone's kid could have explained Episode III: Revenge of the Sith so pithily before we all paid to sit through that galactic cheese.
