  • Directed by: Dave Filoni
  • Written by: Henry Gilroy, Steven Melching, Scott Murphy
  • Cast: Matt Lanter, James Arnold Taylor, Ashley Eckstein, Tom Kane, Dee Bradley Baker, Christopher Lee, Samuel L Jackson, Anthony Daniels

Emperor Palpatine, Count Dooku and General Grievous are poised to rule the galaxy. The universe rests in the hands of the daring Jedi Knights, led by Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, along with brand-new heroes such as Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka. Like the more recent 'Star Wars' films, this is fairly tedious…

  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo
  • UK release: 25 May 2018

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

  • UK release: 14 December 2017

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and…

Troublemaker Jyn Erso (Jones) and Rebel intelligence officer Cassian Andor (Luna) lead a rag crew across the galaxy to make contact with Death Star chief engineer Galen (Mikkelsen), Jyn's dad.

  • Cast: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker
  • UK release: 17 December 2015

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he? Fans can rejoice: Episode VII is sensational and surprisingly emotional, with a finely-crafted script and effects that never overpower the performances. Star Wars is back in a big way.

  • 2005
  • US
  • 2h 20min
  • 12A

  • US

  • US
  • 2h 22min
  • PG
  • Directed by: George Lucas

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

  • 2 stars
  • 1999
  • US
  • 2h 19min
  • U
  • Directed by: George Lucas
  • Written by: George Lucas
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd, Ian McDiarmid, Ahmed Best, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Pernilla August, Frank Oz
  • UK release: 16 July 1999

On the surface, the plot structure of this limp prequel isn't a million light years away from the original Star Wars. At times you'd think there was more animation than live action on screen – and maybe it's this toning down of the human element that left the film lacking soul.

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi

  • 1983
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • U
  • Directed by: Richard Marquand
  • Written by: George Lucas, Lawrence Kasdan

  • UK release: 2 June 1983

Luke struggles to help Vader rid himself of the dark side of the Force, while he rebels launch an attack on the second Death Star after rescuing Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt's palace.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • U
  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz
  • UK release: 21 May 1980

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

  • 5 stars
  • 1977
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • U
  • Directed by: George Lucas
  • Written by: George Lucas
