On May 25, 1977 (A Long Time Ago in a galazy Far, Far away…) Star Wars Episode 4 came out in the movie theaters. This movie was a milestone for many and helped launch the science fiction boom of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s which can be compared to the Comic Book Movie boom that we are currently in. The Adventures of the Jedi Luke Skywalker fascinated many while the villain a Dark Jedi or Sith known as Darth Vader captivated the hearts of others.
Flash forward 22 years and George Lucas, the Trilogy’s original director released a prequel trilogy detailing how Darth Vader decided to go down the path to the Dark Side of the Force. This Prequel Trilogy is considered by most to inferior to the Original Trilogy. There are lots of theories why, including the fact that George Lucas was revered so much by now that no one put his crazy ideas in check, but that is a discussion for another episode. This episode we will be discussing what the correct order to view these movies are.
We cover Purist Order, Release order, Episode Order, Ernst Rister Order, and Machete Order. Let us know which order is your preference.
