When it comes to debating war of starsThe prevailing thought is that all opinions are equal. That changes a little when you’re 7-foot-1 and you’ve just been drafted number one overall in the NBA.
Andor episodes 1-3 review
Victor Wembanyama is a 19-year-old French basketball phenom who was selected number one overall by the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA draft in June. Sports experts believe he could be a generational talent in the mold of Michael Jordan and LeBron James because he’s really, really good and too really, really big.
His unprecedented mix of size and skill made Wembanyama an instant celebrity to both sports fans and non-fans alike. And for those who aren’t sports fans, a podcast interview this summer revealed that Wembanyama isn’t just a huge success war of stars Fan, his ranking of his favorite movie is something you have to hear to believe. Here is the clip starting at 57:18 of the Old Man and the Three podcast.

Yes, you heard that right. One: Revenge of the Sith. Two: Attack of the Clone warriors. Three: The Empire Strikes Back. Then, almost most importantly, He doesn’t even want to acknowledge the new films.
There is so much to unpack here. The first is that Wembanyama, as he reminds us, was born back in 2004 Revenge of the Sith was even released. So it makes perfect sense that Sith is the image that he may have seen first and therefore became his favorite. From there, which film leads directly to his favorite film? Attack of the Clone warriors. And then what is the most loved? The Empire Strikes Back. So this wild, completely crazy ranking makes at least some sense. Some.
The super hot take here, however, is that the 19-year-old doesn’t even want to count the sequel trilogy of The Force Awakens. The Last Jedi, And The Rise of Skywalker. These films, released when Wembanyama was 11, 13 and 15 respectively, should have been right in his wheelhouse – the target audience if there ever was one. But he hates her. Is this just a new case of prequel syndrome, where the films he was probably looking forward to didn’t live up to expectations and are now vilified? Will he, or perhaps his children one day, see these films later in life and adopt them as prequels, thereby reassessing the critical consensus? We will see.
And yes, we fully admit that this clip is four months old, but it’s only just made its way in our Twitter feed– right at the start of the NBA season – and we hadn’t seen it before, so maybe that applies to you too.
