May the force or 4th be with you. Droves of Star Wars fans celebrate Star Wars Day on May the 4th so of course we are joining in on the fun. One of the most popular franchises in cinematic history, Star Wars first debuted in 1977 and remains to this day a cultural phenomenon. The franchise now contains 12 films, a Disney + series, oh, and an entire land at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. So if you’re one of the millions of fans of the Star Wars Universe, I take it you probably have one or two favorite Star Wars Movies.

This is where I admit (and proceed to hide) that I think I’ve seen maybe one and a half Star Wars movies. And both of those were probably before the age of 12 so a few years ago! I’m slightly familiar with the original set of characters thanks to Star Tours at Disney. And I did experience Galaxy’s Edge last month at Disney World. Though I was certainly outside of my element. But perhaps in honor of this holiday, I’ll open Disney + and start a Stars Wars Film tonight. Should I go with the favorite? Or go in order?
