Introducing your friends to Star Wars
In this episode:
- Getting into Star Wars can be tough. It has a
huge history and a gigantic fanbase, and with 50 years behind it,
some people are intimidated by the franchise and don’t know how to
jump in. Never fear, geeks! We’re here to help.
- Inspired by our resident Jedi Noobs
Chocobochica and CapsuleJay (among others!), we want to make sure
that Star Wars is not unapproachable. We provide suggestions on the
best viewing order on the movies, as well as jumping-on points that
aren’t necessarily even tied in with the films.
is a huge swath of Star Wars-related media out there, so if you’re
a book person, we recommend books (specifically, audiobooks!), or if you’re a gamer, there are always
video games, and if you like to binge, you can even jump in with
some of the cartoons and even different ways to watch
discuss the oft-mentioned Machete order, as well as how The Force
Awakens (Episode 7) changed the way you jump in and get accustomed
to the galaxy far, far away.
spinoffs like the recent Rogue One and the upcoming Han Solo films
present unique ways to dip your toes in without needing 50 years
worth of history to make sense of it all.

wrist strap over other controllers.
