It’s May the Fourth, Happy ‘Star Wars’ Day
It is May the Fourth, which means it is 'Star Wars' Day. How are you celebrating?
For the first time since the beginning of the 'Star Wars' saga, we are able to watch all nine episodes at once on 'Star Wars' Day. All of the episodes are now available on Disney+ for you to enjoy. For those of us that grew up with 'Star Wars,' this means a lot. We spent most of our lives waiting for the completion of the saga and we saw the final episode in December of last year. Now we can watch them all from home.
If you are trying to break someone into the complete saga, it is going to take you some time. How long will it take exactly? Well, here are the run times for all nine episodes.
- 'Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace' - 2 hours 16 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones' - 2 hours 22 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith' - 2 hours 20 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope' - 2 hours 1 minute
- 'Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back' - 2 hours 4 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi' - 2 hours 11 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens' - 2 hours 18 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi' - 2 hours 32 minutes
- 'Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker' - 2 hours 22 minutes
That means that it will take you 20 hours and 26 minutes to watch The Complete Skywalker Saga. That doesn't even include the extra movies that have been tossed in along the way like 'Rogue One' and 'Solo.'
Also premiering today on Disney+ is 'Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian,' which is an eight-part docuseries that goes behind-the-scenes of 'The Mandalorian.' It will contain interviews with the cast, never before seen footage, and more. The show was great and I can't wait to watch the docuseries!
The biggest question when it comes to watching all the episodes with someone new is, what order do you watch in? All the episodes in story order or the order that they were released in theatres? In my opinion, the only way to teach someone new is to watch them in the order that they were released. What are your thoughts?
