Because I have already checked, can there be a tag synonymy called star-wars-1 considering it doesn't exist and it is very accurate to which star wars movie we are talking about. Instead of it being star-wars the-phantom-menace as 2 different tags, could we have it like star-wars-1, star-wars-2 etc.

Reason for star-wars-2 is because when you watch the start of the second star wars movie, that itself says star-wars-2, so why not?

    Depending which version you watch, Star Wars Episode IV is simply titled "Star Wars"

  • But the opening scroll specifically refers to it as "A New Hope".

So why not?

It's unnecessary and confusing.

The tag for explains its purpose.

An epic space opera film series created by George Lucas. Use this tag when asking questions about Star Wars. If you're asking about a particular movie, also tag the question with the tag for that movie (for example [a-new-hope] or [the-empire-strikes-back] etc).

Plus there will be arguments about which is "2"...Is it Attack of the Clones or Empire Strikes Back?

A tag should be unambiguous and ...isn't.

  • It is quite obvious which one it is: it says purely in the movie.

  • It's not "obvious". Ask anyone which was the first Star Wars movie and they will all answer "A New Hope". I might be in favour of star-wars-episode-1 but again, it's redundant. What is the overriding need for the tag?
