'Star Wars' novice sought to watch nine films for $1,000


Published in Weird News

(UPI) A financial advice website is seeking someone who has never seen a single Star Wars movie to watch every film in the Skywalker saga and make $1,000 in the process.

FinanceBuzz announced it is celebrating the upcoming Star Wars Day -- aka May the Fourth -- by paying someone $1,000 to watch all nine of the Skywalker saga films.

"We're looking for someone who's brand new to the franchise -- a first-timer to the Force, a true young Jedi -- to rate and evaluate the saga from an outsider's perspective," the posting states. We'll use our Wookiee Rookie's analysis for an upcoming story on the franchise.

The website said the chosen candidate will watch each episode in release order.


"Starting in chronological order (by release date), you'll make your way from Episode IV: A New Hope all the way to Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. And if you're wondering why we didn't start with Episode I, you're probably the right person for our job," FinanceBuzz said.

The Star Wars "side-hustle" pays $1,000, plus $100 toward the cost of streaming the films and going to see Episode I: The Phantom Menace in theaters for its upcoming 25th anniversary re-release.

Applications are being accepted on the website through the end of the day May 4.
