Confession: after starting our with a huge head start on most of the folks in this forum (just guessing!) by seeing the original Star Wars as a wee kid back in 1977 in theaters a half-dozen times or more, and greatly enjoying the original trilogy…I kinda fell off the Star Wars wagon.
Can still remember being disappointed by Phantom Menace…and then when Clones came out I was moving across the country and it was easy to skip because it also fell short of fan expectations. And then I was moving again when the third prequel trilogy movie came out and skipped that as well, since I’d not seen the second.
I did finally watch, uh, Episode VII a few years back, and I liked it more than I think hardcore Star Wars fans did. Always meant to see VIII, but had time conflicts the times that friends were going and missed out. And if you’ve committed that much, might as well see the latest, right? In for a penny, in for a pound and whatnot.
Plus Rogue One (which I gather is pretty good) and Solo (which I gather is less a fan favorite) are out there. So put those in. 11 movies!
Oh, and The Mandalorian. Maybe that goes at the end?
So here it is. I’ve probably got more time than I’ve had in years on my hands, even with just a reduced work schedule. I’ve got 4K versions of all the films at my fingertips thanks to Disney Plus.
So what’s the viewing order here? Chronological by release date? (Middle trilogy, prequels, Disney?) Chronological by events depicted? And regardless there, where should I slot in Rogue One and Solo?
Thanks for any input and advice!
