In which order should kids see the Star Wars movies?!
But is this the correct way to view the movies? Technically the entire series is about Anakin Skywalker, his rise, fall, and redemption. To understand the full story arc one should view the movies in the proper sequence 1-6. If you start with 4, you think the story is about Luke.
That said, Lucas completely ruined any surprises for somebody watching the series in the correct order. I can just see a young viewer watching the movies in the correct order saying "Gross, he kissed his sister." before it was ever revealed Luke and Leia were related. It also completely negates the entire surprise ending of The Empire Strikes Back when Vader tells Luke he's his father, the pivotal moment of episodes 4,5 and 6.
So which is best - the historical order or the revisionist order?
