Unless you either:
a) have never seen the Star Wars movies and want to avoid spoilers for when you do watch them, or;
b) absolutely loathe the Star Wars movies and could not stand reading anything at all about them;
then I highly recommend reading “Star Wars: Machete Order” by Rod Hilton. Fiction writers especially. We will all face choices of “which pieces of my story do I tell, and which do I leave to be inferred? What order do I tell those pieces in?” Taking each movie in the two trilogies as a “piece” of a complete story, Hilton explores several possible orderings to put them in, each with its own benefits and drawbacks, and finally argues persuasively for one particular order, the one he calls “Machete Order.”
Hilton’s description of how the complete saga comes together when watched in “Machete Order” is so well-thought-out, it actually makes me want to see the prequel trilogy, which nothing else truly has. Even if you don’t like science fiction, I advise every fiction writer to read this post and take a look at how he approaches the issue of ordering the story to achieve maximum impact.
