Mark Hamill Reveals His Ideal Order for Watching STAR WARS

Ever since George Lucas made the prequel trilogy of Star Wars, fans have been asking themselves what the best way to watch the films is. I personally have liked this method: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi. The problem with that is, where do you put Rogue One? In a recent interview with Collider, Mark Hamill was asked if he had an order that he recommends. Here’s his response:

I always think ... the way they were chronologically released.

Now, I may be wrong, because if you’re starting out fresh, you probably go: [Episodes] I, II,III, IV, V, VI ... uh, Rogue One? It’s hard, I mean, wait a second. Rogue One comes before IV! Yeah, so you go: I, II, III, Rogue One, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII ... I’m guessing.

As you can see, he also doesn’t really know what to recommend anymore. It can get confusing and I’m trying to figure out the order I will show my kids. If we go in release order as Hamill first suggests, we’ll see the Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, The Force Awakens, then Rogue One. That doesn’t make a lot of sense. If you ignore the spin-off films like Rogue One and Solo, it makes more sense, but if you include them, it starts to get confusing if you don’t go chronologically. What’s your favorite order to watch Star Wars?
