It’s Star Wars Day!

Also mentioned above, it’s National Star Wars Day for all those scruffy-looking Nerf Herders who have come to love the franchise birthed by George Lucas in 1977.

On this day, May 4 (because, get it? It sounds like “May the Force…?), Star Wars fans from around the world gather on social media and within their respected homes to sit down with their families or with friends and watch their favorite films, tv shows, or spinoffs.

Although an informal commemorative day, the first ever Star Wars Day started in 2011. After 12 years, this May 4 day has brought millions of people together and has grown in popularity ever since.

The Debate Heard Around the World

Since the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), fans have been angry and disgruntled towards Disney for not creating a cohesive, comprehensive storyline that correlates with the original and prequel trilogies.

When TFA (The Force Awakens) was released, there were many rumors and speculations on who Rey was, where Finn came from, and where the story was going. It brought Star Wars back into the pop culture world (not that it ever left).

But the absolute icing on the hatred for the sequel trilogy came after the release of Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017). I did not enjoy the film.

Although it has beautiful cinematography and unique effects, the storyline did a complete turnaround from the previous film, leaving a sour taste in the mouths of many fans confused by choices made from their iconic legacy and new characters.

But that is my own opinion, and I know you have your own.

So I have to ask: per the viral tweet above, which Star Wars film do you think reigns supreme out of each trilogy? 

Sound off in the comments below, and May The Force be With You All! This is the way.
