Star Wars Conundrum: Sorted

I wrote before about the problem I have with showing my daughters the Star Wars series (well, some of them). It’s difficult to decide what order to show them which versions of the films, and how quickly.

Skip straight to the 1:00 mark to start. You’re not missing anything but the standard film.

Star Wars, starring Benny Hill as Jar-Jar… that’s just inspired. That it works so well is proof that Lucas had lost his mind when he wrote that character.
