We thought this holiday it may be fun to "discover" the Star Wars movies. We have borrowed some, but are in a muddle about what order they're supposed to be watched in. We have got II, III, IV, V and VI. My husband thinks that you should watch them in release order, which is IV then V then VI, and I, II and III last, as they are prequels, released later. This would work nicely because we haven't got I, and you can't seem to buy it. For the avoidance of confusion (haha, we're very confused) the ones we have are: II Attack of the Clones III Revenge of the Sith IV A New Hope V The Empire Strikes Back VI Return of the Jedi My husband's theory is supported slightly by the fact that II and III look different from the rest, their writing is in gold, while the rest are in silver. So, should we watch IV tonight? Will we know what's going on, or will we be confused by not having prior knowledge?
