My DS has seen the first movie when he was about 4.5 and it didn't bother him- and he is very sensitive! I think because it's so fantastical (ie lightsabers not guns) a lot of it went over his head at that age.
He's watched lots of the Clone Wars series too, which are cartoons and rated PG so may be an option for some kids who aren't 'ready' to watch the movie yet (again there's a fair bit of violence in clone wars but it's cartoon violence and pretty tame)

DS was 5 when he watched the original three and then nearly seven when he watched the other three and he was fine with them - obviously we watched them with him and like FL said I think it's the fantastical nature of them that meant wasn't scared or upset. He's nearly 8 now and he's really sensitive - he was beside himself watching Oddball because the fairy penguins were in danger but StarWars? No worries!

4yo DD has watched all 6 Star Wars films, some of them twice & enjoyed them. She recognises all the characters & knows that Darth Vader is actually Anakin. She has also watched some of the cartoon Clone Wars series (think it's called that) as well.
The odd part was a little iffy (like when Anakin gets burnt in the last one) but we talked about it & she was ok (no nightmares or anything).
