Star Wars Marathon: Nesting Viewing Order

Caitlin and Charlotte try a different viewing order for the Skywalker Saga, the Nesting or Matryoshka Viewing Order (as we’ve named it). Here’s the order: Start with The Force Awakens, then The Last Jedi, A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, Return of the Jedi, and, finally, The Rise of Skywalker. We go through each important transition and discuss why we loved this order and what interesting things we noticed. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers!
