RANKED: The Star Wars movies, from worst to best

Star Wars. Nothing but Star Wars.

At least, that's how being on the internet is going to feel for the next couple months, in the lead-up to the Dec. 20 release of The Rise of Skywalker. The film will reportedly put a bow on the nine-part saga that began back in 1977, and it will definitely make all the money.

As the film's final theatrical trailer dropped this week, we're hopping on the bandwagon and running down the Star Wars movies, from our least favorites to the absolute best. We're sticking to live-action, theatrically released features, so don't expect to see Ewoks: The Battle for Endor or the 1978 Holiday Special (which would obviously be No. 1 if it were being considered).


Here's our list; you will no doubt disagree.
