STAR WARS MARATHON
November 29, 2013  | By David Bianculli

Spike, 2:00 p.m. ET

 

Well, it’s a mini-marathon, really: a sequential showing of what are now the first three movies in the Star Wars cinematic narrative. (In other words, these are the three prequels to the story begun with George Lucas’ first Star Wars film in the mid-Seventies.) The action begins at 2 p.m. ET with 1999’s Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. And features a markedly young Natalie Portman as Padmé, a role she would repeat in the next two films as well. 2002’s Episode II – Attack of the Clones follows at 5:30 p.m. ET, and today’s trilogy of Star Wars films concludes at 9 p.m. ET with 2005’s Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
