Star Wars fans come in many shapes, sizes, and ages, apparently. But this little Princess Leia fan may be the cutest one. In a recent blog for GeekDad.com, writer Jonathan Liu explains that while watching the original Star Wars movies with his older daughters, his youngest, a toddler, walked in to the room and ended up watching most of it with them.

Though he didn't think she'd retain most of what she saw, he was surprised when she seemed to recognize some of the characters and seemed especially interested in Darth Vader. "When he first appeared on the screen, she started mimicking the sound of his breathing. When the Imperial March started playing, she stood up and danced," Liu wrote in his blog. She even started pulling Tom Angleberger's Beware the Power of the Dark Side! off the bookshelf (it has Darth Vader on the cover).

Despite these clues, he was both shocked and amazed when she woke up from her nap singing the "Imperial March" from the movie. "Yes," he writes. "The force is strong with this one. But she seems to be leaning toward the dark side." Watch the video below:
