Original Trilogy Still Outranks New Star Wars Movies In New Poll

There might be a lot of excitement building up over Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, however it seems like a new poll shows that fans still prefer the Star Wars original trilogy over the newer installments in the Star Wars franchise.

Research firm Morning Consult just recently held a survey asking 2,200 adult respondents various questions about various Star Wars topics, and one of the topics that they covered was the sample size's favorite Star Wars movies.

Respondents were asked to rank the films in the Star Wars franchise, and as expected, the original trilogy ranked the highest in the research firm's poll. Ninety-four percent of the respondents participating in the survey found Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope, Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI – Return of the Jedi pretty favorable, whereas films from the prequel trilogy had less than 90% favorability.

Episode I – The Phantom Menace got 84% favorability, Episode II – Attack of the Clones got 85% favorability, and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith got 88%. Lucasfilm's newest movies, The Force Awakens and Rogue One, both got 91% favorability.

91% isn't that bad, the respondents still seem to think pretty well of the sequel trilogy and the standalone movies in the Star Wars franchise. Guess it's just really hard to beat the original trilogy.

We wonder where the studio's latest movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is going to stand in comparison to all the other films in the franchise when it comes out this Friday, December 15, 2017.
