I find your lack of Star Wars disturbing.

With Star Wars Day coming up on May 4th, plenty of people are already planning their Star Wars-themed celebrations.

This “Wookie Rookie” as they’re calling it has a huge task ahead of them, but if you think you’re up for it, scroll to find out how you can apply right now.

What You’ll Do

In order to be eligible for this dream job, you absolutely must be a newbie to the Star Wars franchise. That means you’ve never seen any of the movies or TV shows or played any Star Wars video games. Yes, that even includes The Mandalorian.

You might also be wondering about the order you’ll be watching the movies in, since there is some debate on the “correct” order to view them. The films will be watched in release order, meaning it will be as follows:

  • Episode IV: A New Hope
  • Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
  • Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  • Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  • Episode VII: The Force Awakens
  • Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
  • Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

If selected, you’ll have seven days to watch all nine films, so plan your viewing schedule accordingly! That means watching roughly four hours of the franchise every day.

What You’ll Win

Of course, taking on the gauntlet of watching all nine Star Wars movies is no easy task. Watching the marathon of movies takes over 25 hours! Thankfully, FinanceBuzz plans to reward you for all your hard work.

To repay you for your time, the winner chosen by FinanceBuzz receives a $1,000 cash prize. Aside from that, they will also get $100 to cover the cost of streaming all the movies, movie tickets for The Phantom Menace, and any snacks needed.
