I’ve fallen into using “SW '77”. It’s better than the revisionist “A New Hope/Episode IV” malarkey, and it avoids confusion with the broader franchise.

I say both. But i don’t say Star Wars 1977, Just Star Wars. And A New Hope.

Use the force, move the Jedi Rocks.

Man, I remember being 8 years old in 1993, watching Star Wars on VHS. It always confused the hell out of me that the first movie was called Episode IV in the title crawl. Lucas is a madman.

Like…if you wanna do prequels, fine I guess. But do them like the X-Men movies did. First Class is a prequel, but nobody refers to it as the first X-Men film. Episode numbers just make things weird. It infuriates me when I hear about people who are new to star wars starting with Episode 1.
