The time has come for the geek question of all geek questions: which is the greatest Star Wars movie? I was going to make this November’s poll to lead us up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. However, I have a feeling we’re all going to be talking a lot about Star Wars this month so I thought I’d unleash the beast into the geek pit now.
Mid-August, Disney hosts its annual expo: D23. It’s relatively new, but with each year Disney has been making it a bigger and bigger platform for announcements. There was a staggering lack of new information announced at the Star Wars panels at Comic Con. I think that’s because Disney is going to use D23 to announce the next phase of the Star Wars universe, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the full trailer for Episode VII and perhaps the teaser for Rogue One, as well.
So what is the best Star Wars film we have now? It’s the time to ask, because in six years the number of choices will have literally doubled. We’ve had 10 years at minimum to re-watch the last installment ad nauseum and debate. Who’s the king of the mountain going into a whole new era in a galaxy far, far away? VOTE (although I swear if I find someone voting for Attack of the Clones, I will grill you like a nerf steak)!!!
