‘Star Wars': All the movies ranked from worst to best.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens new teaser has been released on Thanksgiving Day and it focuses on the villain Kylo Ren, played by Adam River, but Luke Skywalker was missing. The Star Wars teaser was posted on the movie’s official Facebook page featuring some awesome battle scenes as well as a cryptic dialogue possibly between the mysterious villain Supreme Leader Smoke, voiced by Andy Serk, and Kylo Ren, E! Strong, resourceful, and with more than a dash of Carrie Fisher, her character Rey – often accompanied by appealing rollerball droid BB-8 – seems to unite the best of the old and new Star Wars worlds. It’s fun yet a bit weird to see the movies again after so long, and to realize there are entire chunks of The Empire Strikes Back that I can still quote from memory, and huge sections of Attack of the Clones that I forgot even existed.

The film also features fellow veterans Carrie Fisher as Leia, Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca and Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, who maintained his record of not being seen in any teasers, trailers, posters, merchandise or anything related to ‘Star Wars.’ In fact, the actress says, on her very first day of filming, she was almost reduced to tears by the film’s director JJ Abrams, after he criticised her for being “wooden”. “I was petrified. I thought I was gonna have a panic attack on the first day,” she told Glamour, in an interview published in the magazine’s new January issue. “Because JJ…he probably doesn’t remember telling me that my performance was wooden. It’s easy to pick on Episode I for Jar-Jar Binks and stupid little tow-headed Anakin, but that’s because the more insipid elements of Episode II weren’t quite so blatantly in your face.

Later on in the interview, she admits that, while she hasn’t yet watched the film, and had the chance to evaluate her performance, others have – including Steven Spielberg, who has apparently already watched it three times (we’re assuming he liked it). There was some good stuff in the movie, for sure: sinister Senator Palpatine, the jet-packing Jango Fett and the neon-drenched streets of Coruscant were all kinds of cool. From a refreshingly normal, non- showbizzy background – although let’s not forget that her great-uncle, Arnold Ridley, was in Dad’s Army – the London-born actress won a scholarship to her fee-paying stage school, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. But there was so much that was awful about this film, from the laughably wooden dialogue to the video game-y droid factory sequence (still one of the stupidest action scenes of any Star Wars movie) that it deserves its place at the bottom of the trash compactor.

Her Star Wars success propelled her to almost-instant fame – but, if her social media feeds are anything to go by, she’s managed to remain down-to-earth, regularly instagramming pictures of her dog, and enthusiastically expressing her love of the BBC’s Great Bake Off (both activities we whole-heartedly endorse) . Very cautiously optimistic.) Jar-Jar Binks almost singlehandedly sinks the film, but there’s plenty of other awful stuff here, like goofy droid soldiers, a boring trade dispute and cringe-inducing dialogue that wasted the talents of formidable actors like Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman. But the pod race sequence, the gripping Darth Maul lightsaber battle and seeing the origins of young Anakin (and his robot pal C-3PO) helped alleviate some of the pain. But anyone desperate for a few extra crumbs of Star Wars story will be disappointed: the actress is still neatly evading questions about her character’s rumoured background. Still, Revenge of the Sith was the least worst of the prequels, even if the romance between Anakin and Padme Amidala was like a Star Destroyer-sized fork scraping across a galaxy-spanning chalkboard.

It was surprisingly dark, better paced than either of the other prequels and had some great space battles and fight scenes, including a nimble Yoda going up against Palpatine in the senate chamber. You can hate on the Ewoks all you like, but those resilient little teddy bear people were far, far less grating than 90% of the aliens George Lucas dreamed up for the prequel trilogy. And yeah, Return of the Jedi ends basically the same way A New Hope did – except with a much cooler character dealing the final blow to the Death Star (Lando for life!) – and yeah, it was becoming clear by this point that not everyone who’d been cast in these films was a master thespian. Yet it doesn’t matter: a farm boy from a desert world dreamed of adventure and ended up meeting a princess, a wizard, a thief and all manner of amazing aliens and robots, before being swept into a rebellion against an evil empire and saving a whole damn planet. From the incredible Hoth battle sequence to the “I am your father” scene between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker – arguably the linchpin of the entire saga – it was scary, exciting and unapologetically dark, leaving our heroes defeated and scattered at the end.
