As we near the end of the 2023 Capes and Tights Star Wars Week and it’s time to rank our favorite live-action Star Wars movies and tv shows.
This list is compiled of all the movies and television shows based in the Star Wars Universe. We polled Capes and Tights Podcast guests Ryan Lessard, Jonathan Hedrick, Paul Eaton, our writers, as well as a few friends of Capes and Tights to determine the best list possible.
Each live-action Star Wars project was assigned a point value based on where the movie or show ended up on each respective list and added them up. The highest point total got first and the lowest last and so on.
16. The Star Wars Holiday Special
Chewbacca and Han Solo try to get to the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk to celebrate Life Day, but are impeded by an Imperial blockade. Chewie’s family passes the time with various forms of entertainment.
While not available to stream currently, The Star Wars Holiday Special classifies as a live-action special and therefor earns a spot on our list. This past holiday season Justin Soderberg and Gibran Graham discussed the holiday special on an episode of the Capes and Tights Podcast.
