Movie Monday: Star Wars The Force Awakens Is Coming!

Star Wars fans are in a tizzy over the new The Force Awakens trailer! Take a look:

 

It’s about freaking time! Can you feel it? That’s the excitement of millions of Start Wars fans reverberating together in anticipation

Star Wars fans are super excited for another long-awaited installment in the series. Even after years of lull, Star Wars mania hasn’t really died down. Thanks to shows like The Big Bang Theory, which feature popular stars as big Star Wars fans, renewed interest just keeps soaring.

 

If you’re a ling standing Star Wars fan, you may still have strong opinions on when the “prequel” installments came out and if the originals were better than the newbies. If you’re a new Star Wars fan, you’re likely to enjoy them equally. But if you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen Star Wars, you should watch them before The Force Awakens comes out. Seriously, call off work and go watch them now.

 

Serious Star Wars fans recommend a certain order to watch Star Wars episodes for first time viewers, and it’s not at all what you’d think. It’s called the Machete Order:

  • 1st: Episode IV
  • 2nd: Episode V
  • 3rd: Episode II
  • 4th: Episode III
  • 5th: Episode VI
