Here's Why the Star Wars Movies Might Need to Swap Names

Netflix podcast host Kris Tapley created a silly stir recently with a minute-long TikTok showcasing an argument for renaming all the Star Wars Skywalker Saga movies.

Titled “Why Every Star Wars Film Has the Wrong Title,” the video quickly, and humorously, takes viewers through all nine episodes, rearranging the titles — from Episode I: The Phantom Menace to Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker — to explain why they should all be switched up.

Check it out…

Here’s Tapley’s suggested naming:

  • Episode I: The Rise of Skywalker
  • Episode II: Revenge of the Sith
  • Episode III: Attack of the Clones
  • Episode IV: Return of the Jedi
  • Episode V: The Force Awakens
  • Episode VI: The Last Jedi
  • Episode VII: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Episode VIII: A New Hope
  • Episode IX: The Phantom Menace

So what did y’all think? Does this new sorting of titles make sense? Do they make more sense than where they are now?

In other movie news, Courteney Cox is returning for Scream 5, Michael Jackson tried to play Professor X in 2000’s X-Men, and Karl Urban (The Boys, LOTR) revealed he had a secret cameo in The Rise of Skywalker.
