Watch the movies

If you have the Star Wars movies on DVD or digital downloads, have a marathon with all your favorite films.

If you don’t, that’s OK too because TBS is having a marathon, which already started!

The Phantom Menace aired overnight with Episode II: Attack of the Clones starting around 3 a.m. ET. TBS is airing every episodic Star Wars movie and Rogue One for its May the 4th be with You marathon.

It’s never a bad time to watch the movies, but is there a better time than today!

Although, while TBS is airing the movies in order from I through VI, then Rogue One, and then Episode VII: The Force Awakens, that’s not everyone’s preferred ways of viewing all the films. so, this way will have to do for now.

It’s also a good chance to re-watch the prequels as they’re finding a resurgence as the generation of Star Wars fans who grew up with these films are getting older.

So if you can’t leave the house, or it’s raining or even just want some background viewing, the TBS marathon is a perfect way for you to enjoy the franchise’s holiday.
