The much publicized upcoming link got me thinking about the optimal viewing order for the Star Wars saga. The logical approach is to view the movies in episodic order (which is how Cinemax plans to air it). But I'm not so certain that this is the best way to watch Star Wars.

What follows is a rundown on the only four *viable* ways to view the Star Wars saga that I can think of. Sure there are other viewing orders, but these are the only ones that make sense from the standpoint of storytelling and continuity.

Here goes:

Method 1: By Order of Episode

This approach is clearly the viewing order intended...

It was a dark and stormy night in Naboo. Rain was falling down hard as lightning strikes flashed nearby, followed with the sounds of thunder.

Imperial Officer: *Slowly walking back and forth, making sure the Stormtroopers load everything onto the Star Destroyers* Not long now, just keep it moving!

What the Imperials didn't notice was that a Metra, was parked next to two AT-ST's. Inside was a female officer being held hostage by two Rebel's.

Their Metra is the one on the bottom: link

On the planet of Pira-after the first battle of Geonosis.

Ticara bowed low to the Keeper, the old man came forward and placed a loving kiss upon his only remaining heir. His grand-daughter." What brings our gracious king's newest passion to see an old man?" Sicar saw the disgust on her face as she rose up from her bow. " When?" It was a question all to often asked these days, one that he had no answer for as of yet. He looked out the window at the cherry tree that had grown so well in these 35 years. Under it the sad bundle that the Imprinted one had asked to bury in their garden. With only...

So Luke, Leia and Lando Headed for Tatooine. It was a such a ways out from other star systems. It was not even part of the Republic.

Once they reached Tatooine they knew they could not just barge into Jabba's Palace. Luke remembered where Ben's old house was beyond the dune sea. They went there to change into clothing and armor that would disguise them.

Then Luke headed back to the Dagobah system while Leia and Lando headed for Jabba's palace. " Please Hurry back Luke. I don't want anything to happen to you too...by the way, is something wrong. You look so shocked and scared" asked Leia worried...

Half of another person? she wondered. Standing there in the nude under the starlight. She put on her silky white nightgown and decided she was being a hormonal 18 yr. old.

" It just cant be. My mother is dead. My father is dead, and I have no living realitives." She then started to cry again. She always wanted to know her real parents and if she had any siblings.

But now was not the time to stress. Her and her foster father were going to meet the Emperor tomorrow and she needed sleep.She laid down on her bed and fell asleep.

Meanwhile...Lord Vader and the Emperor were having a visit.

We Know the story of Luke and his relationship with his father Darth Vader. But we never got a look at Darth Vader's relationship with his daughter Princess Leia. Enjoy!

That fateful dark and dreadful day in the galaxy. Padme Amidala on the medical bed dying with only a few minutes to live, looked over at her two beautiful twins. She knew in her loving heart that even though she would die, her children would carry on her strong spirit for what is right but not always easy....and though it was painful she thought of how they would grow up with a part of their now fallen father in each of them....

Orrian decided to disobey General Veers, and have Ozzel in charge instead of Jörgenstien.

Orrian: He left Naboo, and is going to Kinyen to celebrate his wife's birthday.
General Ozzel: A majority of our officers have left to take part in some war games on Mygeeto. Grand Moff Lebelt is with them. She has ordered Musker and the others to go to their usual spots by the beaches in Champalla. She is still convinced that the Rebels will start the invasion there.
Orrian: It's a good thing that you're in charge, instead of Colonel Jörgenstien. Otherwise, we'd be in trouble.

"STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII - THE LAST JEDI" (2017) Review

Following the success of the Disney Studios' first hit STAR WARS film, "STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS", I had assumed that producer-director J.J. Abrams would helm the next chapter in the franchise's Sequel Trilogy. I was eventually surprised to learn that Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, hired writer-director Rian Johnson to both write and direct "EPISODE VIII".

My positive reaction to the news about Johnson being hired by Lucasfilm originated with my reaction to his 2012 film, "LOOPER". I found Johnson's 2012 film to...

Colonel Turner: Here he is. At the Schloss Adler. The Castle of Eagles. Believe me, it's well named, because only an eagle can get to it. Our job is to get inside there, and get him out as soon as possible.
Colonel Kramer: Major Debeldun, in charge of shipping in weapons.
Republic Soldier: Green light go!

"Master Yoda, I have tried all forms of meditation. Yet been unable to pinpoint from where these disturbances come." Obi-wan said the jedi master. Yoda frowned deeply. All had felt the Force's sudden surge, and had been on the look out ever since. Nothing was ever found. Some said it was some new Chosen One or perhaps some life force joining the Force. Yet that question only breed more questions. " Capture your dreams you must, answer your questions they may." Obi-wan shook his head and produced the vid cube from his pocket.
"I've already done so.What answers it leads me to do not bring comfort...

General Lizzon was inspecting other sections of Sandy Point when another General walked into the control tower.

General: Where did all the X-Wings go?
Tower Operator: General Lizzon's orders. His main concern is sabotage.
General: Unacceptable. Get those X-Wings back out there now. We need those pilots to get up in the sky as quickly as possible if an enemy does attack. Also if Lizzon's really worried about sabotage, he would leave those X-Wings the way they are, so that the guards can watch them all without having to turn their heads. Now, as I said earlier, get those X-Wings back out there.

"THE LIGHTSABER CONNECTION"

A great deal has been made of the light saber given to potential Jedi acolyte Rey by former smuggler Maz Kanata in “STAR WARS: EPISODE VII – THE FORCE AWAKENS”. It was during this moment when young Rey experienced visions of her past as a child and her future encounter with villain Kylo Ren. It was this moment when movie audiences became aware of her connection to the Force.

I really do not recall how I felt when I first saw this scene. After all, it has been at least two years since the movie’s release. Yet, the more I think about it, the more I have come...

As a die hard Star Wars fan,I have been eagerly awaiting for episode 8 since seeing the end of The Force Awakens.This time there was a new director at the helm,Rian Johnson.

I will try to make this review as spoiler free as possible(for those that haven't seen The Last Jedi yet) ...

I have just come from seeing The Last Jedi.Like all previous Star Wars movies,there are tons of special effects and giant explosions,and this one is no different.There were some old returning favorite characters and we met some new faces as well(Laura Dern,Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran) and who could forget...

On the way to Beebee, Logan and Meghan stopped in another town.

Meghan: This will be a good place to look for a blaster.
Logan: Aren't you forbidden to use blasters?
Meghan: I already used yours once. I might as well have my own.
Logan: Alright, you find yourself a blaster. I gotta get two more detpacks. We'll meet back at the speeder bike.
Geonosians: *Flying past, carrying Geonosian Carbines*

Captain Needa, and Major Lesden were talking to Colonel Jörgenstien.

Captain Needa: Since General Ozzel isn't here, perhaps you can talk to Lord Vader in Endor, and see if he'll send us anymore tanks.
Colonel Jörgenstien: Well thanks to General Ozzel's silly assumption of an invasion in Cenell, we can't get any tanks to defend Champalla. I just called Cenell, and they believe Han Solo is leading an attack.
Orrian: What? Last I heard, he was in Hoth.
Colonel Jörgenstien: You see my point? You should not have put General Ozzel in charge.

Republic Captain: *Unveils a miniature dummy paratrooper* This is Rupert. Now we're going to fly Rupert into Naboo, behind enemy lines, and we're going to drop him on the ground. When he does, he's going to do something extraordinary. *Hits a switch on the back of the dummy's head*

Tiny explosions occurred which looked like blaster shots.

Republic Soldiers: *Closing their eyes*
Republic Captain: Settle down now. We're going to do this with Rupert, and many of his fellow comrades. This will distract the Empire, and have them head away from the landing zones where the real paratroopers land.

"SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY" (2018) Review

Following the release of Lucasfilm's ninth film, "STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII - THE LAST JEDI", the STAR WARS fandom seemed to be in a flux. Although the film received a positive reaction from film critics and was a box office hit, for many reasons it created a division within the franchise's fandom. And many believe that this division, along with a few other aspects, may have produced a strong, negative impact upon the next film released by Lucasfilm, "SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY".

Why did I bring up this topic? Easy. "SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY" proved to be Lucasfilm's...

Back on Twilek Bridge, Franklin, and Martin lead a squad to a nearby town.

Danielle: Where are they going?
Wedge: They're off to take one more town from the Imperials. Then this battle will be over.

Yuvana was a small town, but it had big buildings. This included a hotel, and a casino.

Shawn: *Waiting in an alleyway with Tom, and Dyle*
Franklin: Alright, on a count of three.
Martin: One.
Tom: Two.
Dyle & Shawn: Three!

They ran out of the alleyway, and ran towards the casino. Fifty seven other soldiers were right behind them firing their blasters at the Imperials. They turned right to go across a...
