Star Wars Fan Theory Claims All Titles Are The Wrong Way Round
When it comes to the Star Wars franchise, to say there are a lot of fan theories would be an understatement. The latest arrival has some serious legs though, claiming the titles of the space opera film series have been wrong this entire time.
This is the case argued by TikTok user 'Fake Disney Facts', who uploaded a video in which he describes how each of the nine movies' titles would make a lot more sense if they were swapped around with one another.
Hear him out - once you do, you'll never go back. For example, in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, we meet Anakin Skywalker, and so the narrator reckons the film should instead have been named The Rise of Skywalker.
For Revenge of the Sith, viewers are reminded that order 66 happens and the clones attack. And so the suggested title is (you guessed it) Attack of the Clones.
The latest release, The Rise of Skywalker, sees Palpatine return from the dead, making him The Phantom Menace.
Equally compelling cases are made for every film in the saga, with many fans agreeing with his theory.
"Pretty solid logic," commented one user, while another described it as: "Just about the most brilliant fan take I've seen!"

Elsewhere in a galaxy far, far away, Disney recently confirmed that Taika Waititi is set to direct a new Star Wars movie.
News that the Thor: Ragnarok director would helm the project was announced on the franchise's official webpage.
It says: "Academy Award winner Taika Waititi, who recently won Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit and directed the widely-acclaimed first season finale episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+, will direct and co-write a new Star Wars feature film for theatrical release."
And if that weren't exciting enough, Disney also revealed that Leslye Headland (Russian Doll) is working on another Star Wars TV series for Disney+.
According to the House of Mouse, Headland will write, executive produce and serve as showrunner for the series, which adds to the growing list of shows for their streaming platform.
That includes season two of the popular The Mandalorian, as well as the currently unnamed series following the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope (or, should we say, Attack of the Clones and Return of the Jedi).
