Which order should I watch Star Wars movies?

I’m planning on some content changes and want to talk more about some of my other passions. A big one is Star Wars, it’s been a constant through my life and I wanted to share my love for the series more.

In preparing for this year I wanted to do a rewatch, writing down my thoughts on each movie and maybe even doing a podcast.

Here’s the order that I’m going to be watching them in

  • Episode I
  • Episode II
  • Episode III
  • Solo
  • Rogue One
  • New hope
  • The Empire Strikes Back
  • Return of the Jedi
  • The Force Awakens
  • The Last Jedi

Don’t expect Disney+ in the UK

Sadly when I read the following I dreaded thinking about what might happen for us in the UK.

Notice launch in the US.

For a Star Wars fan looking forward to The Mandalorian it’s got me worried.

I’m thinking that Disney will instead push TV onto their SKY channels as they did for Rebels, alienating an entire audience who doesn’t want to pay for subscription TV.

I’m really hoping I’m wrong.

How to watch Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures in the UK

Myself and my daughter sat down to watch Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures on YouTube only to be presented with this.

I tweeted out to a few of my favourite Star Wars Podcasters and the social media team (thanks to Michelle Buchman) at Star Wars got back to me.

Turns out if you’re outside of the US and Canada you will need to use Star Wars Kids.

Star Wars, The Mandalorian announces directors and first image

The new streaming series from Jon Favreau just keeps on looking more positive. Aside from the bad ass looking Mandalorian in the image below the list of directors and creatives at Lucasfilm is top notch. Having Dave Filoni on board is a very positive step, having George Lucas’s padawan involved in live action is great. He’s long been doing great things on the animation front with clone wars and rebels and having him on live action in some capacity is only good.

I also can’t believe I’m seeing Taika Waititi (Thor Ragnorok, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) directing an episode.

Can’t wait for this.
