Posted by admin with Comments Off

As I told you a few updates ago, MTV will air all six episodes of Star Wars this weekend!!!

What are you doing this weekend? Actually, don’t answer that. I’ll tell you what you’re doing this weekend. As a Memorial Day weekend treat and lead-in to this Sunday’s episode of Behind the Screen, MTV will be running all six Star Wars movies between Saturday and Monday. If you’ve seen George Lucas epic space fantasy, then you know exactly why you should be tuning in. If you don’t well here are all the reasons you need to settle in with some popcorn for a long, lazy weekend in front of the TV.

Darth Vader livesThe Fall of Anakin Skywalker

Hardcore Star Wars fans like me have some issues with George Lucas’s approach to the most recent trilogy, starting with 1999′s The Phantom Menace. Wherever your opinions fall with regards to the new movies, it’s hard to say a foul word against Anakin Skywalker’s (Hayden Christensen) beautifully orchestrated descent into the Dark Side of the Force. In addition to be able to witness the birth of Darth Vader, Revenge of the Sith’s climactic lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Skywalker, his former pupil, adds new context to A New Hope’s the first movie released in the series rematch saber duel.

There’s one final reason you should tune in for this weekend’s .Star Wars. marathon on MTV. On Sunday night at 11pm, right after .Episode IV. ends, you’ll be able to get some insider Hollywood scoops on the latest episode of Behind the Screen.
