Why Talking About Star Wars is Hard

  One thing I was thinking of last night was the way people talk about the Star Wars series.  I have noticed there are a lot of confusing ways to address the films/sets of films, so why not look at those for fun huh?  This is not a comprehensive or even serious list, just something I thought of before bed that I hope you enjoy ^^  Also, if I missed anything that you guys have heard that's confusing, weird, awesome, etc, leave a comment or send it to me on twitter @Alias_Lea!  I don't think there are any spoilers in here btw!


What People Say What It Can Mean What Can You Say Instead?
"The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. movie" The X movie to come out, or the X movie in the chronology. "Episode 1, Episode 4, etc." or "The Phantom Menace, A New Hope, etc."
"The first ones" The first 3-6 to be released, or the first X number in the chronology. "The Original Trilogy" (IV,V,VI), "The Prequels" (I,II,III), or the Original six (or something more catchy).
"Star Wars" The entire franchise, latest movie, or Episode IV? Depends on context???
"The Clone Wars" Episode II, the event in canon, the 2003 animate series, or the 2008 animated series? "The Clone wars movie, the old clone wars show, the new clone wars show."
"The Animated Series" Droids (1985), Ewoks (1985), Clone Wars (2003), Clone Wars (2008), Rebels (2014) Name of show/see above
"The New Ones" This will soon include not only VII, VIII, and IX, but also 3 (or more) spinoff films including Rougue One. "The Sequel Trilogy" (which sounds a little lack luster to me. Any better ideas?) and "The Anthology or Spinoff Movies/series/trilogy."
"The Bad Guy" The Emperor/Chancellor Palpatine, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, General Grevous, Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett, The Sith, The Empire, Stormtroopers, The First Order, Hux, Kylo Ren, The Supreme Leader, Jar-Jar Binks, George Lukas, etc. etc. etc. ..........
"The bad guy from..?"
"Star Wars Christmas Special" A fate more painful than the stomach of a Sarlacc Nothing.  Forget it's existence.
