What is the chronological order of the Star Wars films and TV shows?

02 March 2023
People care about the chronological order of Star Wars for several reasons. One of the main reasons is that the Star Wars franchise has a complex and expansive universe with a rich history, and watching the films in chronological order can provide a more complete understanding of the story and characters.

Watching the movies in order also allows fans to see how the events of the prequel trilogy (Episodes I, II, and III) set the stage for the original trilogy (Episodes IV, V, and VI) and the sequel trilogy (Episodes VII, VIII, and IX). This can help viewers appreciate the world-building and character development that went into the franchise as a whole.

Additionally, watching the movies in order can enhance the viewing experience by revealing hidden connections, Easter eggs, and references that might not be immediately apparent when watching the films out of sequence.

Overall, while it is possible to enjoy the Star Wars movies in any order, watching them in chronological order can provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the franchise as a whole.

Here's the updated chronological list of all Star Wars movies, television shows, television specials, and cartoon shows. 

There are other Star Wars shows in the works which do not yet have confirmed ABY year settings

  1. The Acolyte is expected to be set 100 years before the events of The Phantom Menace
  2. Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is set concurrent to the time frame of the Mandalorian
  3. James Mangold (Indiana Jones) has been announced as making a film about the creation of the Jedi, so that could be set thousands of years ago. 
  4. Ashoka is currently in The Mandalorian Universe
  5. David Filoni will write and direct a film that is a crossover between all the shows, leading into an Avengers Assemble type conclusion. This would be presumably be set before The Force Awakens. 
  6. It has been announced that Daisy Ridley is to star in a film set post The Rise of Skywalker in which she trains a new generation of Jedi. Sounds like Luke got robbed again...
