Worst Star Wars Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Star Wars Holiday Special

Before you even think of watching this, just think of sitting in a cafe, with everyone around you speaking a different language you cannot speak or understand. That's what this film is like, but goes on for 2 hours. Also, did I mention how dull it is?

I watched about ten minutes of it, and I finally was laughing so hard, I had to stop. I can't believe this was not a joke. - JustAnAccount

Wow I thought Phantom Menace would be number 1. I thought everyone hated Jake Lloyd's acting. The first movie with Jar-Jar.

The only thing worth watching here is the Boba Fett animated sequence. Other than that, it is the worst movie of all time.

2 Star Wars, Episode II - Attack of the Clones

This movie is easily the worst out of the 6. Bad story, bad characters (except Obi-Wan) terrible, terrible dialogue and it is so boring. Even the lightsaber duel wasn't very interesting. Sure, seeing Yoda use a lightsaber was cool at first, but that lasts 1 minute, out of 134. Even the Phantom Menace got that right - Ponmon

If this list was about Just Star wars episode 1-7, this would be at Number 2. The Force Awakens was worse.

This movie may be technically better than the Holiday Special and the Ewok movies, but what did expect from this movies? This is a Major Big Budget Star Wars release as part of the main Episodic saga. And for that reason it is in my opinion the most disgraceful and painful of the series. - Darth-Snorpy

A Terrible movie
Episode 1 was not good. Underdeveloped characters and boring senate things made it a boring movie. But it had good things. Obi Wan, Qui-Gon and Darth Maul were really good and the pod race was good as well. Episode 2 however, had annoying characters and the light saber battle was boring. Also Yoda vs Dooku felt too cartoony to enjoy. The dialogue is worse then anything I have seen. The one good thing is Jango Fett, which does not matter because he was unimportant and had a lame death.

3 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

One character that stood out to me was Jar Jar Binks. There is a conspiracy theory on why Episode 1 *ahem* Phantom Menace was so bad is that Jar Jar is a Sith Lord. I'm not kidding. Not a lot moviegoers have ever noticed it. He may be a comical alien character on the outside who likes to mess things up, but what if Jar Jar did those mistakes on purpose? What if Jar Jar donned a black robe and was armed with a red lightsaber? Did he plan to let Palpatine/Darth Sidious lead Anakin to the Dark Side of the force? A lot of questions may go unanswered. Anyways, you can go to YouTube and type in "evil jar jar binks" on the search bar to find that video.

All I had to say is that this is worse than episode 2. The only good parts of this episode is the racing scene and the final battle. Also, this is episode 1 but its rushed. There was already a battle in the beginning. In episode 2, the story is slow, but isn't as bad as this one. After 15 minutes, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan encounter a toad with horrible grammar. WHAT? And then, we have Jar-Jar Binks. damn it, Jar-Jar is stupider than Patrick. His stupidity is everywhere. His stupidity is the reason why this movie is bad (even though I am a fan of Star Wars). As for the prequel trilogy, I loved episode 3 the most and was the only good movie. So, yeah. This one is the worst. In episode 2, Jar-Jar Binks isn't stupid anymore and only appeared in the first few minutes.

Oh Jake Lloyd! The awfulness of this performance just kills me. - dureckl

I can agree, though I found out a creepy thing that he attended my future high school. Sure I knew that famous people came from where I live like Michael Jackson but Jake Lloyd and three Modern Disney Channel actors really?! - Anonymousxcxc

This is what you get when you mix bad acting and an extremely stupidly written script - a dull crap, filled with the worst CGI effects in the franchise, plus the imbecile abomination called Jar Jar Binks. God I hate this creature, it is a torture just listening to him talking with his incredibly weird accent and it only worsens the whole failure! Also, the idea for little boy Anakin smashes you like the smell of socks. Probably they think it’s very original, but for me it just shows the lack of any capabilities from the producers. So boring. The most forgettable cinematic experience in the history of the 20th and 21st centuries. Shame on this ‘movie’... - Kalo

4 Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Why does Esoka exist? She is a mistake? Is she Eight? She's a good liar, she called herself a Jedi. Jabba's son exists (that's a bad thing in case you haven't seen the movie). Jubba calls his son a Puddgy Muffin? What? This movie exists and that's a bad thing!


5 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This movie is painfully overrated. Story sucked, plot was boring and similar to New Hope storyline, poor pacing, too many plot holes, cheesy humour and mediocre acting. And in the end they killed off the greatest Star Wars character Hans Solo in efforts to promote the new disney princess, Rey. Yes, this movie sucked and I hated it. And worst part is that this film got a high rating. Either Disney is paying off the critics or the critcs are blinded by the nostalgia factor or feminism. 92% my ass.

This movie didn't make sense, it was too much like "A New Hope", which was great, but this is just unoriginal, the bad guys, such as Kylo Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke just came out of nowhere, and the new evil group, The First Order, is just a popped out of nowhere bunch of weirdos who think they are the ultimate terrorists, but they don't realize they aren't, yet they made another Death Star, and when they destroyed the New Republic, they didn't realize that they didn't wipe out all of it, and another horrible part, which would shock you, was that Kylo Ren just dumped Han Solo out of Star Wars, by killing him, which was the stupidest thing to do in Star Wars, besides making bad movies, and the DS3 was destroyed by the good guys by finding that same dang weak point, which is WAY overused, and Rey just simply grabbed Kylo Ren's light saber using the Force, like she knows how to use it without even training, which doesn't even make sense.

This just shows you that J.J. (Jar Jar) ...more

One of my favourite movies series ruined! And there is one company to blame and that is DISNEY.

6 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rouge one's treatment of the imperial military completely destroys their image to most people. Disney has continued to ruin the Imperial by treating every single one of them like idiots. Star wars rebels (besides being a overall lazy show) severely damaged the imperial army/navy's image. Rouge one shows one person (Baze) kills at least 20 storm troopers and in one battle said person is able to kill all 8 death troopers (aka elite storm troopers). The reason rouge one did this is because (in my opinion) they were too lazy to show a effective enemy. They also show the imperials being incompetent the death star being used on imperial facility was moronic. If Tarkin was real he would have turned the death star on the rebel fleet (assuming they could turn it in time) Instead of just leaving Darth Vaders one star destroyer to destroy the fleet. The imperials not being ordered to evacuate Scarif is just so lazy any real military wouldn't want to loose so many officers and troops for no real ...more

Rogue One somehow manages to be worse than Last Jedi.

I actually liked this movie!

I felt no emotions for the characters what so ever

7 Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

This movie is a piece of garbage. I mean, what's so exciting about Snoke's throne room battle? That fight scene is lame. It's not even a light saber battle, which contains Rey's idiotic screaming... oh yeah, speaking of light saber battle, Luke vs Kylo Ren was absolutely the WORST fight scene ever in my life. All that happened was Luke and Ren stare at each other and run across each other, with Kylo Ren striking Luke's shoulder, which was ok because he missed. Oh yeah, I deserve to spoil this movie. This is the longest Star Wars movie which was pretty useless because it's so boring, and there is absolutely no plot. The story is about the Resistance trying to escape the First Order, in which Luke trains Rey in order to defeat Kylo Ren without falling into the supreme leader's trap, which was somehow a parody of episodes 3, 5, and 6, so, that being said, there's no story. What made this similar to episodes 3, 5, and 6 is that, the Resistance dies which brought back the Rebellion ...more

I never left cinema more disappointed. This movie biggest failure is maintain the Star Wars lore, but it also fails in the plot that most of the time doesn't make sense or is irrelevant and below bar acting. And don't forget the worst scene in the entire franchise.

This is the worst Star Wars movie to date, it has bland plot and poor acting, too much CGI, yet George Lucas did not envision any Star Wars story like this, and it looked like they never tried hard enough about learning the Force.

Umm...y’all meant BEST STAR WARS MOVIE? I’d like to see these whiny fanbabies try to write a film even half as good. I’d wait, but I have more improtant stuff to do than cry about a movie.
‘It’s not my Star Wars! 1! 1” you may cry, but newsflash: it never was. Star Wars is for everyone, not just whiny manbabies who can’t handle a female main character in a movie. If TLJ ‘ruined Star Wars’ for you, you weren’t a real fan to begin with. If you didn’t like the movie and can’t handle not whining about it, leave the fandom. We don’t need arselochs like you.

8 An Ewok Adventure
9 Ewoks - The Battle for Endor
10 Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars

Kind of funny. - JustAnAccount

We don't want star wars ruined by this show


The Contenders

11 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Best prequel

The best prequel, it met up to Star Wars for its prequels, but still, it wasn't the best.

To me the best Star Wars Movie and the darkest - westofohio

More like revenge of the prequels - it's the only one that people like. - JustAnAccount

12 Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure
13 Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

This one was great, it shouldn't even be on here, it was another masterpiece.

This movie is a masterpiece... why the hell is this here

Could have been better compared to some other Star Wars stuff, but it was pretty awesome. - JustAnAccount

I like it! But I don't think it's a Masterpiece! people only say that it is because of the epic scene in the end!

14 Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales

This is a T.V. show - Midevilnight

15 Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion

This Thing, Oh Gosh, I Forgot About It - VideoGamefan5

16 Solo: A Star Wars Story

No wonder they had to fire Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Those two direct good movies like 21 and 22 Jump Street, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (I thought the sequel was overrated), and The Lego Movie. But why Ron Howard? I just hate his previous movie, Inferno. That movie was crap. And now, he's gonna ruin this. Disney is such a jerk for ruining the whole saga. I already know this is gonna be crap because no Harrison Ford=No Han Solo, and the guy dosen't even look like Han Solo (looks more like Captain Kirk from the first Star Trek movie), and this is from the director of that crappy Inferno. At least it's not Rian Johnson or Michael Bay.

Avengers Infinity War, take all the money. Harrison Ford has been replaced. I already know this is gonna be bad due to the fact that the Han Solo in this movie looks ugly, and I bet it's not even popular because not much people are talking about it.

I saw this already. It was THAT bad. If you hated TLJ, you will hate this one more. It's too slow, boring, and has terrible actor replacement. Alden is not a good Han Solo. The Millennium Falcon dosen't look like a Millennium Falcon. The villain was corny. The fight scenes are corny. And this was an insult to A New Hope. The cinematography and background design looks too futuristic even though it's a prequel to A New Hope. Just wait for the Kenobi spin-off. This one is not worth it. Just watch Deadpool 2 instead. That movie was AWESOME!

This movie is as bad as TLJ. This should not earn it's money at the box office. Please, I beg you, don't see this movie. It's cheesy, predictable, and boring. Alden's acting is completely garbage.

I want Kathleen Kenedy fired before episode 9.

17 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

This counts in the list even though its not Star Wars becuase THEY HAVE COPYRIGHT! They used Jabba as a cameo but just changed the name, and this is a ripoff to the greatest franchise ever.

18 Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

This was a great classic, it started Star Wars, and it turned out to be good.

Not my favorite one but it is amazing, it had the most oscar wins in 1978 and got nominated for best picture

It's a little boring because it is so old. But back in the day I bet this movie was legit.

You just HAD to put this here, didn't you? - JustAnAccount

19 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

But.. But.. This one's the best.. - LizardKing99

This was the best one ever, it shouldn't even be on here.

This movie is great

The movie sucks and is very overrated. I prefer New Hope over this anyday.

20 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The new trilogy is crap. I had to put it in this list again because of how awful this one was... no wait... garbage is a good word to describe this film. Crap is also another word to describe this film. It is that bad. Poor shame, rotten tomatoes. You totally just wanna defend/support Star Wars. I don't see any reason why you thought this was excellent. This whole movie is just to insult Star Wars fans and is made for non-Star Wars fans. Even Mark Hamill seemed to be insulted by this. Thank god he warned us it was bad before it was released. And this was all because of DISNEY. Why do they always borrow other companies and ruin them? Answer: they just want money. They just want to be the biggest company yet, and Disney has been the oldest studio yet, made in the early 1920's-30's. I do not want to understand the mind of Disney where they borrow other companies and ruin them. So, I won't spoil anything about the movie, but all I will spoil is: this is about the Resistance, not the Jedi.
