The Best Star Wars Movies Ranked

For nearly 44 years, the Star Wars franchise has been one of the most successful business industries promoting movies on intergalactic sci-fi action. Here are 10 of the best War Wars Films ranked in a successful order. 

1. The Empire Strikes Back 

Even though this was not the first Star Wars movie to hit the big screen, this film was undoubtedly flawless. This is a movie whose masterpiece is almost equivalent to Scarface. What makes this movie such a masterpiece is its terrific dialogue, the deepest characterization, the most compelling story, and the best individual moments of the lot. But the best part would have to be the amazing plot twist at the end between the galaxy’s fiercest villain and the newest generation of Jedi. The biggest Star Wars plot twist

2. Star Wars a New Hope 

The importance of understanding the original Star Wars film was feeling the exciting thrill of witnessing the beginning of a movie revolution. There are so many aspects in this movie that make it so amazing. From the Jawas and Tusken Raiders in the desert, the canteen scene, the beauty of the Millennium Falcon, the fear of Darth Vader and the stormtroopers, the space battles, and lightsabers. It is a sheer joy and not hard to see why it has touched the hearts of both children and adults. The first ever Star Wars film


3. Rogue One 

As hard as it is to believe, who would have thought that a Star Wars film from 2016 would have more positive ratings than all the other films. What makes this film so great are its plots. In this film, everyone dies which is very similar to “The Empire Strikes Back”, the character casting is brilliant starring brilliant Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, and Forest Whitaker. But like all great Star Wars films, you have to include that one character that makes the movie so great, Near the end of the film, we got to see a revamped glimpse of the infamous Sith Lord Darth Vader again.

4. Return of the Jedi 

In this film what we thought would have been the final movie in the film series, turned out to be just the beginning. In the Return of the Jedi, this film pickups up where Luke and Darth Vader left off having their first-ever lightsaber duel. In this film, Luke is a fully trained Jedi who finally takes on his Darth Vader for the first time and at the end of the movie, all of our questions are finally revealed when we get to see for the first time what the infamous Darth Vader looks like with his mask off.

5. Revenge of the Sith 

This movie is probably the most enjoyable to all the prequels because we finally get to see how the menace of Darth Vader came to be. Who is Darth Vader you ask? Why it is none other than the child prophecy himself Anakin Skywalker. That’s right, the ending took us all by surprise never thinking that the most honest and skilled Jedi would turn into the most powerful villain in all of the Star Wars films. Now when you re-watch the Empire Strikes Back, you can understand Darth Vader’s most iconic movie line “I am your father” a lot better. Star Wars most powerful villain


6. The Force Awakens

This was the first Star Wars movie to hit the big screen after 10 years before Revenge of the Sith, and everything about this film is all new. This movie shows the lives of original Star Wars actors Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Laya living their lives 30 years into the future. There are a few new actors, but what gets the crowd excited is seeing another reincarnation of the infamous Sith Lord Kylo Ren, who is the grandson of Darth Vader. So, you can tell, there is a big family similarity. The newest generation of Star Wars films

7. Solo: A Star Wars Story

Even though this film technically is not that much of a Star Wars film in most people’s eyes because it does not have that much lightsaber action, it makes the perfect film for telling the origins of our favorite characters. As you can tell from the title, this movie focuses on the life of how Han Solo came to be along with his friend Lando Calrissian who is played by singer Donald Glover. See how these two became the best dynamic duo in the Star Wars film series. Star Wars best character development

8. The Phantom Menace

One of the unique things about watching Star Wars films as an adult rather than a child, you can decipher a lot of key themes and plots that are references to the society that we live in ourselves.

But of course, we should not forget how we get to see the famous Anakin Skywalker as a child. Star Wars films that focused on real issues in today's society

9. Attack of the Clones 

From a little farm boy to a Jedi apprentice all of the characters from the Phantom Menace have all glowed up in this movie. As you can see in this film, Anakin Skywalker is still on his way to becoming one of the galaxy’s strongest Jedis as well as finally confessing his feelings to his lifelong love interest from childhood Padme. If anything, this would probably be the one Star Wars film centered on romance. The biggest love interest in Star Wars

10. The Last Jedi 

If you are a true Star Wars fan, answer this who was the Last Jedi near the end of the series? If you remembered from all the other previous films, you would have remembered it was Luke Skywalker.

In this film, Luke Skywalker is given the biggest ultimatum of his life to either keep hiding from the empire or train a new age of Jedi and help the resistance stand up to the empire. Star Wars last Jedi
