|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.|

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!
