Release Order, Chronological Order, Machete Order, everyone has an opinion about the best order for watching the Star Wars movies. I have a new order to recommend: the Spoiler Order, one that preserves the famous “twists” of the franchise for longer than either the Release Order or the Machete Order.
As much as I love Star Wars, there are definitely some things I would change about it. This is the first in my new “Stephen Rewrites” feature. In Part 1, I talk about changes meant to enhance the Star Wars movies as we know them. In Parts 2 and 3, I change the stories themselves. Part 2 covers my complete rewrites of Episodes I-VI, and Part 3 covers Episodes VII-IX.
