Anonymous asked: Should I rewatch Star Wars in order of release or in story order?
I AM HERE FOR THIS QUESTION.
I’m about to blow your mind.
I’d tend to agree, though I’d like to add that 412536, that is simply holding off of episode 5 until you’ve seen 1 and 2, could also be good. Especially for the young first time viewers. That way you get the whole idea from episode 4 that Vader killed Anakin, then you get to see Anakin and Obi-Wan growing together in the first two prequels. You get attached and start to like them; you think “So this kid Vader is gonna come in and be Obi-Wan’s new apprentice, but be corrupted by growing up during war and fuck shit up in episode 3” and so you’re all good and expecting that to be the case, then you get to episode 5 and SHABAM!!! Turns out the young Jedi Knight you’d been identifying with for the past two movies, the tragic father of our hero, wasn’t actually murdered. He IS the murderer. This bright and good defender of the republic that you grew to love has now practically betrayed you too, because at this point you feel like you’ve come to know him. That way the plot twist in 5 hits you twice as hard. And then you see the bleak episode 3 where you learn how it all falls apart and 6 where the galaxy is made whole again.
