I’m rewatching all of the Star Wars movies and most of the shows with my wife, cutting out some of the animated series to focus on the more interesting parts and/or where Ahsoka fits in, and reorganizing things to be in mostly-chronological order (overall timeline here).
Here’s the list I put together. I’ll be checking things off as I watch them.
