The Star Wars six-pack

This just in from the Hollywood Reporter: all six Star Wars films will be screened at Leicester Square in London on May 16, one day after Revenge of the Sith premieres at the Cannes festival and three days before the film opens to the general public.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I suspect this will be the first time the special-special editions of the original trilogy (i.e. the 2004 DVD versions, as distinct from the special editions released in 1997, and as even more distinct from the original editions made between 1977 and 1983) will be seen in a theatre.

The question is, in what order will they show these films? In the order they were produced, or in chronological order? Which would make more sense? This could be almost like discussing the proper order in which one should read the Narnia books…

    From what I’ve read (aintitcoolnews) they are going to be shown in the order produced.

    IV, V, VI, I, II, and then the world premiere of III.

  • Ah, yeah, that would make sense, kind of like the “trilogy Tuesday” they had for the Lord of the Rings films, the day before the last one opened — show all the movies everybody has already seen, and then top it off with the premiere of the brand-new one.

  • I’d be pleased if they put it in a sort of random order. Or, bookmark a popular scene and run all the other scenes in a near-random style a la Pulp Fiction”.

    Now, that would be interesting.
