I’m think of inventing my own super powers for a Jedi, mainly precognition, in three tiers like other super powers in Tiny D6 Supers. 

Tier-1.  Block shots as an action:  enemies attack with disadvantage (roll only a 1D6), and also only hit on a 6.   

Tier-2.  If the attacker rolls a 1, the shot is deflected back and hits the shooter. 

Tier-3.  Blocking no longer requires an action and is now a passive power.  If you are hit, aka the attacker rolled a 6, you can evade as an action by rolling a 5 or 6 on a 1D6.

Pathetic. Back in my day we chucked four year olds into the Tomb of Horrors with nary a weapon nor health potion. And we gave them GURPs character sheets even though we played DnD. They weren't real men until they could explain what THAC0 was.

Seriously though I'm running B/X DnD for a group of kids and you'd be surprised how easily they clock onto various things. And Star Wars D6 is way less complicated than B/X. I'd say just have a liggtsaber save. Have him make tgat when attacked at range. Fairly simple for a 4 year old to understand.

Take some sage advice straight from the movie, "Let the Wookie win"

He's 4, so dont sweat the rules too much. Maybe on that five or six on a D6, make it a 6 only? Maybe give the light saber a certain amount of damage it will deflect from successful hits before it needs to be recharged? Make it easy on the kid, make sure he has fun, and as he matures and learns math, make it tougher.

I dont know the Tiny D6 rules, nor do I know your son, so take from it what you will.

But whatever you decide, have fun!

Yes, that paralleled real life child labor of that time too. Now Amazon does the same with twenty-four year olds.

The Tomb of Horrors really went downhill fast when Bezos bought it. Capitalism gone mad.
