There’s been fierce debate among Star Wars fans about the correct order to watch the six films before The Force Awakens.
Now, the franchise’s creator George Lucas has waded in himself with the definitive answer.
The director was asked by Vulture which was the correct viewing order for him.
He told the site: ‘Start with one. That’s the way to do it right: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. That’s the way they’re supposed to be done. Just because it took a long time to film it doesn’t mean you don’t do it in order.’
Lucas wasn’t the only one they asked.
Here’s what the other celebs they quizzed had to say about it.
Daisy Ridley (I, II, III, IV, V, VI): ‘I would say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, because for a young person it’s easier to understand the chronology.’
John Boyega: ‘I would say whatever you want! Watch 3, 6, 2, 1 — do whatever you want to do so long as you experience it a very unique way and enjoy it.’
Mark Ruffalo (IV, V, VI, I, II, III): ‘From the first one made to the most recent. Straight through. They just build up nicely that way. That’s the way I saw it, and I’m a little bit of a throwback.’
Aaron Paul (IV, V, VI, I, II, III): ‘You start with the original Star Wars movie. There is no other way. Maybe it’s nostalgia. Or maybe it’s not even that. I have no idea why I feel this way, but you should watch them in the order they were released.’
