    Join us and your fellow forumers as we celebrate the end of the Skywalker Saga with a watch along!
    What we'll be watching:

    1) Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
    2) Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
    3) Star Wars: The Clone Wars (film)
    4) Star Wars: The Clone Wars (TV series)
    5) Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
    6) Solo: A Star Wars Story
    7) Star Wars Rebels
    8) Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
    9) Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
    10) Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
    11) Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
    12) Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
    13) Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    This will be a year long forum event beginning on December 22, 2018 and ending on December 18, 2019, the day before we all go see the new film!

    How this is going to work:

    1) TV episodes will be viewed two at a time Saturdays and Sundays while films will also be viewed on the weekends
    2) A start time for each film/episode will be posted in this thread
    3) Discussion of each film/episode is absolutely encouraged while we watch
    4) A poll will go up with each film/episode and will last until the start date for the next film/episode
    5) I will post the results of each poll in thread before I replace them with a new poll
    6) Discussion/reviews for each film/episode will take place in between watch time
    7) We will be viewing them in chronological order and yes this includes TCW episodes


    I will be posting a schedule for each film/episode soon. If you think you'd like to take part in our watch along let me know in thread. Of course you don't have to watch the whole thing. You can skip anything you wish to. If you're late to the party you can catch up or begin where the rest of us are at. It's up to you. All opinions are welcome. All we ask is that everyone is respectful to everyone else taking part. There will be zero tolerance for any nastiness directed at other users. This is meant to be fun!

    I will be updating this OP with where we our currently at in our watch along so anyone can easily catch up.

    The Ewok movies and the Holiday special are missing!
    Last but not least do not forget to watch the Muppets Star Wars special before Episode V !

    I've changed the information a bit. I think it'll be a lot easier to do this on the weekends. More people will be able to watch then and we'll have more flexibility with start times. So we'll be doing two episodes each on Saturdays and Sundays. That will give us more time to discuss and review each episode before the next batch. And films will still be viewed on either Saturday or Sunday.

    I'd like to know the cellphone policy before I confirm anything.

    This is a cool idea though.

    What versions of the OT will we be viewing? I have the original theatrical releases but Im sure the more sensible choice will be the re-released special editions.

    Yeah, the latest versions of the OT.

    Still working on the schedule and I'll post it as soon as I'm done. Surprisingly scheduling 12 movies and two TV shows isn't as easy as I thought. :p

    So for TCW we're going to watch and poll the individual arcs together instead of each episode within the arcs. Of course you can still discuss and grade the individual episodes if you wish. * denotes a stand alone episode. They've been grouped with arcs but will receive their own discussion thread and poll.

    As you can see our first viewing is on 12/22 at 12:00 PM CST. The start time shouldn't differ too much but you never know so I won't be posting times until a week before the episodes/films are scheduled. If anything changes I'll let the thread know. Once we get into a groove I'll tag regulars when the view time is posted.

    Great idea!

    But why no Resistance? By the time IX is released, the whole Season 1 of Resistance will already be out plus probably the first half of Season 2 as well.

    It's just that. It isn't complete yet. Which is why I'm not including The Mandalorian either.

    Just a reminder: We start this crazy journey next Saturday! We will begin Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace at 12:00 PM CST. [face_dancing]

    The poll will go up after the film is over and will remain up until the following week.

    Well, The Clone Wars isn't complete either. Crystal Crisis, Bad Batch, and the final twelves episodes are not on the schedule. :(

    I know but it's unavoidable. By the time they're released we'll have moved onto Rebels and I figure most people will want to watch them at their own pace since they're new. But it would just be wrong to leave TCW out.

    Good luck all of you. I thought watching a trilogy in one sitting was commitment enough.

    This is epic and I hope you all enjoy it.
