Last December saw the debut of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, marking the end of the Skywalker Saga that fans have been following for decades. However, after all this time, it turns out that it should have taken the title of a different Star Wars film.
Well, that’s according to one Star Wars fan who shared a TikTok video, proving that rearranging the Skywalker Saga movie titles would fit much better with the actual events of each film. The clip is from the Fake Disney Facts TikTok account, who started by explaining why Episode I is supposed to be titled The Rise of Skywalker instead of The Phantom Menace because this is where we meet and discover that Anakin Skywalker is the Chosen One.
Attack of the Clones should have been named Revenge of the Sith because this is when Darth Sidious made a move to destroy the Jedi, marking the Sith’s revenge plot. While Revenge of the Sith takes the Attack of the Clones title because this is where Order 66 took place and the clones attacked, and so on. You can check out the full video below!
At the time of the writing, over 600,000 people have liked the video, suggesting that the fan who made this isn’t alone in thinking that there’s been a mix-up with the Star Wars movie titles. It’s interesting that with the fan’s observation, things came full circle with Episode I taking Episode IX's title and vice versa. This video shows the continued fascination with Star Wars as well as how these films spark debate amongst fans in certain aspects of the franchise.
