What’s The Most Popular “Star Wars” Movie in Texas, Oklahoma & Other States?

I feel a disturbance in the Force!  In honor of it being “Star Wars” Day, Fandom.com analyzed data from its site to determine which movie from the Skywalker Saga is the most popular in Texas, Oklahoma and the other states.

But, honestly, the rankings don’t make much sense.  “The Empire Strikes Back”, which most people consider the BEST “Star Wars” movie, only leads in THREE states.  And while it’s not a complete surprise “A New Hope” has the highest number of states, with 11 (including both Texas & Oklahoma), it IS pretty concerning that it’s TIED at that number with “The Phantom Menace”.  I mean, how is that even possible?!

Here are the (questionable) rankings:

“Episode I: The Phantom Menace”  (1999):  California, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming

“Episode 2: Attack of the Clones”  (2002):  Alabama, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Dakota, New York, and South Carolina

“Episode 3:  Revenge of the Sith”  (2005):  Montana, New Jersey, and New Hampshire

“Episode 4: A New Hope”  (1977):  Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin

“Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back”  (1980):  Alaska, Georgia, and Hawaii

“Episode 6: Return of the Jedi”  (1983):  Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont

“Episode 7: The Force Awakens”  (2015):  Tennessee and Virginia

“Episode 8: The Last Jedi”  (2017):  Arizona and Pennsylvania

“Episode 9:  The Rise of Skywalker”  (2019):  Idaho and Maine


So, what’s your favorite “Star Wars” movie?
