How to Star Wars Correctly
It blows my mind how vast the universe is. In fact it’s so big that creatures exist who have never seen Star Wars! WHAT?!?
Granted, everyone has different tastes and sci-fi may not be their thing. But hey, I’m not into rom-com and yet I’ve seen The Princess Bride. Truth be told, I’m actually more of a Star Trek fan, but that’s another blog.
A common comment I hear is that the movies are confusing since they’re not in chronological order. It’s true, the canon's space-time is confusing since the first movie released was “Episode Four” and “Episode One” wasn’t released until much later. (Like 20 years later.) Then there are other storylines, series, even video games sprinkled in between that were released throughout the years.
As a public service to the inhabitants of this universe and those in a galaxy far, far away, here’s my recommendation* on how to watch Star Wars so that the storyline makes sense chronologically.
*Disclaimer: this is just my recommendation. The internet is full of varying opinions, and this is simply one of them :) Enjoy!
