I Ranked All "Star Wars" Content From Being A “Great Disturbance In The Force” To “The Force Is Strong With This One”

A long time ago in a living room far, far away, a young child sat on her family’s worn-out couch and watched Star Wars: A New Hope for the very first time. This marked the beginning of her journey into one of the most renowned media franchises of all time. And what a journey it has been!

While I’m obviously obsessed with certain shows and movies, not ALLLLL Star Wars content has passed the Force vibe check for me. That being said, here are my personal rankings of all the Star Wars TV shows and movies to date.

13.The Mandalorian

Ahsoka did its job in serving all of the nostalgic content for Rebels and The Clone Wars fans. Seeing all of these animated characters come to life, especially when the casting is so spot on, hit all of the right notes for me. Nonetheless, I do think the series threw out some of the character development that the Rebel animated series did so well building up. Was it just me or did Sabine act like a completely different person in this show? Clunky characters aside, it was worth it to see Hayden Christensen take on the mantle of Anakin again, sporting the same look the character had in The Clone Wars. Also, that small cameo of a particular stormtrooper made me gasp in utter joy.
