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...

"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...

Han's P.O.V

I was checking the engines on the Millenium Falcon when Leia strode past me. She ignored me.
She had seemed tense recently. I wondered why she was being hostile towards me.Did I offend her? Did I upset her?
She walked out to the balcony, I followed her.
"Leia?" I called to her.
"Yes" she replied without turning to look at me.
"What's going on with you lately? One day you're all over me, the next you don't want to know me?" I questioned her.
"It's just..." she trailed off "It's just! It feels like all we have in this relationship is sex!"
she yelled furiously.
"Hmmm?" I mumbled still confused....

Wedge Olkan and his squad were still at Twilek Bridge, when Imperials started heading towards them.

Yarrin: They have rocket launchers!
Wedge: Stop them first! Otherwise they'll destroy this bridge!
Republic Soldiers: *Shooting the Imperials*
Stormtroopers: *Shooting the Republic* Look, reinforcements are coming to help them!
Republic Soldier: *Playing the bagpipes*
Franklin: *Running with the others* Come on, we're almost there!
Shock Trooper: *Aiming his rocket launcher at Franklin's group* Take them out first, then finish off the others. *Fires a rocket*
Republic Soldiers: *Get hit, and fall into...

The tank was still in front of the bank. The driver thought the coast was clear, until this happened.

Kelly: *Walks out onto the street from one of the buildings to the left*
Big Joe: *Walks in from the right*
Oddball: *Following Big Joe*
Imperial 57: *Turns the turret towards the three Rebels*
Kelly: *Holding an A280C*
Big Joe: *Holding an A280C*
Oddball: *Moves back part of his coat, revealing a holster carrying an SE14C*

The three of them started to walk slowly towards the tank. The driver still had the tank's big gun pointed at them, but was curious to see what they had planned.

Kelly:...

The rain was still pouring down as Big Joe and Babra made their way to Major Colwin.

Big Joe: Come on Barbara, hurry it up!
Babra: Hey Joe.
Big Joe: What?
Babra: Don't call me Barbara.
Big Joe: Well that's your name, isn't it?
Babra: But my real name is Babra.
Big Joe: *Pushing Babra towards another building* Get over there.
Babra: Ow, take it easy!
Big Joe: *Makes it towards a door, and knocks twice* Hello?
Rebel: Who's there?
Big Joe: Big Joe.

Some where near Coruscant.
Year 57 BBY.

Electric sparks and laughter echoed through out the hall . The sweet smell of sweat tantalized the senses as did the dear face of her opponent.
Sota Slayer woke to that fading memory, as she trailed her quarry. Getting up from her command chair to recalibrate the tractor beam's settings, she caught a tear sliding like a thief down her cheek. Sota wiped the offensive liquid onto her jacket with disgust. If she'd never had any feelings her life would have been so much for the better. " But then who would you be?" The chuckling comment made her jump. Closing...

As Jorg eased a breath, he looked around. "Where is she?" Vizan's face fell. Jorg grabbed his wrist."She can't be, I was there longer. It should have been me." Vizan bowed his head.
" She wasn't strong enough. They couldn't save her."
Jorg swallowed hard against his grief." How long?" His brother took a shakey breath."She didn't last the night. That was two days ago." Vizan turned as his brother's grief became more then he could bare. Jorg caught at his brother's sleeve, his eyes wide with pleading. " They have to be lying. They have to be." Vizan gripped his brother's hand gently. " No. I...

"STAR WARS: EPISODE V - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK" (1980) Review

From a certain point of view, I find it hard to believe that the 1980 film, "STAR WARS: EPISODE V - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK" has become the most critically acclaimed STAR WARS movie by the franchise's fans. And I find it hard to believe, due to the film's original box office performance.

I was also surprised that "THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK" was released in the first place. Despite the ambiguous nature of villain Darth Vader's fate in the 1977 film, "STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE", I had assumed that film's happy ending meant the...

My charcter, Bree Maloria is a young 17 year old jedi in training. She falls in love with Anakin Skywalker. Bree was born on Corellia, her parents names are Ginger (mother), and James (father).
Bree loved her parents so much until stormtroopers attacked her city and killed her parents.

She decided to go to Tatooine to become a jedi and look for somewhere to live.
When Bree turned 15 she was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi. He brought her to the Jedi Temple to see if she will become successful in the future. Yoda saw that she would fall in love with someone in the Jedi council. Bree was afraid because it was forbidden to fall in love when you are a jedi. Yoda and Mace Windu warned her to look out for other jedi so she can't be in love.
Yoda also suggested to Obi-Wan to train Bree.
He wanted her to work with his padawan, Anakin Skywalker. 2 years later, Bree finishes her training with Obi-Wan. She finally meets Anakin on
Naboo. Anakin and Bree both become fast friends and team members.

After that encounter with Vader. Leia ran outside to wait for her father. " Im sorry for your loss-what does he care!" she fumed to herself.

Over the next 2 years things got even more ugly between Leia and Lord Vader as she continued her mission for peace and justice; while Vader continued to ensue fear into the hearts of every creature in the galaxy.

Leia did manage to finally get the written details of the Death Star in hope for a weakness. Her ship the Tantive IV was on route to her home planet from receiving the stolen information.

" R2-D2 come here, you have to see these plans safely to...

The U-Wings were approaching a runway, but the Toydarians were attacking it.

Rebels: *Shooting at the Toydarians with cannons*
U-Wing Pilot: *Watching the commotion* What a way to fly into a war, no ammo, and no fuel.
U-Wing Pilot 53: We have to land somewhere.
U-Wing Pilot: *Hits a button to lower the landing gear* One of the gear's aren't coming down. Corporal! Can you fix the gear, and make it go down?
Rebel Corporal: I'll try sir.

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.
General Ozzel: *Walks into the room* What is going on?

One of the Rebels named Alan lost all of his money from a crap game, and was going around a big room with lots of beds. He was desperately trying to get more money from one of his friends.

Alan: Hey, can you lend me a hundred credits?
Rebel 32: No.
Alan: *Walks to another bed* What about you?
Rebel 59: I don't have any credits to spare.
Alan: *Climbs on top of another bed* Can you spare me 50 credits?
Rebel 49: Buzz off, I'm trying to read a book.
Alan: *Climbs down* 25 credits? Anything. *Walks over to his friend Paul*

A group of Republic pilots were together in a bar at Coruscant. Word soon got around about the Empire's intentions to attack.

Ken: And of course we'll have full support of the Rebel Alliance.
Justin: Well at least someone's trying to help us.
Ken: Naboo, and Mygeeto will help us too. They won't join in on the fighting, but they're sending pilots to volunteer.
Captain Smith: *Walks into the bar* Right you two, General Capta wants us at the airfield on the double. Let's go.

The two pilots followed the captain out of the bar. Once they arrived at the airbase, they saw a few Z-95's, along...

"ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY" (2016) Review

When I had first learned of Disney and Lucasfilm's plans to create a series of stand-alone films within the STAR WARS franchise, I felt a little taken aback. I had felt certain that the new owners of the franchise would stick to a series of films that served as one chapter in a long story. But following the release of "STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS" and my slight disappointment over it, I was willing to accept anything new.

"ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY" was announced as the first of a series of those stand-alone film. However, I found...

John: *Putting a trap on a tree, and moves it's wire towards one of the plastic poles*
Morris: *Moves up to the last pole on the speeder bike. He gets out, and places the last trap on the pole, and gets it's wire attached to another plastic pole*

Kelly and Babra walked into the building with Colonel Allandra. Big Joe was angry as he talked to someone else on the radio.

Big Joe: I don't know how many times I have to tell you! Your artillery is being dropped on our position!! You are missing the Imperials, and hitting our boys!!
Kelly: Take a seat. This'll only take a second.
Colonel Allandra: *Sits down*
Big Joe: You can't hear me. The reason you can't hear me, is because of those orbital strikes you keep firing!! THAT ARTILLERY IS HITTING US, INSTEAD OF THE IMPERIALS!!! GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL!!!!! *Gives the radio to Little Joe*...
