Star Wars timeline: in what order to watch all the movies and series?

The Star Wars timeline has concluded and the official trilogies can be enjoyed on Disney +. It is a unique occasion because there are few opportunities to contemplate the whole saga again and not lose the order of the series to come. They will be appreciated again on TV, although with advantages and disadvantages, considering that since George Lucas unveiled this series , there has been much debate about the order in which it should be viewed.

Today, with so many animated and live action series, the organized way of following the saga has become a very complicated subject. With that element in mind, here we will share some sequences in which you can see this blockbuster that will illustrate both the most ardent fan and the newcomer who wants to catch up on Star Wars.

There are 11 films that comprise the Star Wars saga, if we do not include TV series and animation films. Two questions arise from the above aspects: what is the order in which they should be viewed? Who would be, after all, the true protagonist (s) of these serial feature films?

Light chronological order

Although the initial film was initially titled simply as Star Wars (Star Wars, 1977), later this name was changed, finally becoming known as Star Wars: Episode IV-A New Hope. In this way, it was shown that the order in which these tapes were released is not the sequence in which the events represented occur, giving rise to a dilemma.

When observing the films, according to their sequential order, they would be viewed chronologically and, as could be imagined, it is the favorite order of the creator of the saga, George Lucas. It is obvious, but it would take away from the fun because the most important plot of the series would be ruined by prematurely introducing Luke’s father, a stellar moment from Star Wars.

Obviously, this provision might seem designed only for the most knowledgeable. Even so, in this light order the series and normal films or that are part of the canon are included, excluding, therefore, any other type of series.

Rise of the Empire

  • Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars: the clone Wars (series)
  • Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  • Han Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars: rebels (series)
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rebellion

  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
  • Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

New Republic and First Order

  • The Mandalorian (series)
  • Star Wars: resistance (series)
  • Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
  • Star Wars Episode VIII: the last Jedi
  • Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Release order

The sequence indicated below is the order in which the films were released at the cinema. It is the one that is most often recommended for the simple reason that the original tapes were the ones that produced the Star Wars mania, considering that the mission of the other elements was to rescue some of this magic.

Although it is possible to maintain the plot of Luke’s father, the story often seems strange, since the prequels, which occupy a secondary position, jump towards the end of the story. Kids new to Star Wars may be a bit confused.

New films based on the saga such as Rogue One (2016) and Han Solo (2018) appear somewhat out of place because they happen between the originals and the prequels. Even so, they are side stories that serve to please interests, as are the series that would not make sense to mention given the length of all of them.

The debut of any of these films could be related to the moment in which they were released. Currently they can be exchanged, but always while the story of the prequels occurs.

  • Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
  • Episode V: the Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  • Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)
  • Episode I: the Phantom Menace (1999)
  • Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
  • Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  • Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)
  • Rogue One (2016)
  • Episode VIII: the last Jedi (2017)
  • Han Solo (2018)
  • Episode IX: the rise of Skywalker (2019)

“Machete” order

Fans have experimented and devised a variation on the order of these feature films, but they are just as fanciful. The Machete Order essentially makes The Phantom Menace disappear, because it is considered superfluous..

This sequence was created in 2011, so it does not incorporate the latest sequels that would come later, but since it was conceived by clumsy fans, it would surely also rule out The Last Jedi. Who knows what would happen to Han Solo, but it would include Rogue One.

  • Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
  • Episode V: the Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  • Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
  • Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  • Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)
