The Chronological Timeline Order of the Star Wars Movies

With all the Star Wars films coming out these days, you could be forgiven for not keeping track of what the chronological order of them is. Where does the ‘Solo' film fit in for example?

And that's a fair question for the casual viewer who hasn't seen either of those films. Not to mention The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett (with its post-Jedi flashbacks), The Acolyte (set 100 years before TPM), Andor, and Rangers of the New Republic!

So, here's the list of every single Star Wars film and Disney Plus show in chronological/narrative order.

The one where a young Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-gon Jinn escape a hostile blockade to find allies and come across a young boy who turns about to be the Chosen One.

1. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999)

The one where Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé Amidala, while Obi-Wan Kenobi investigates an assassination attempt on the senator which leads to … an attack of Clones.

2. Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002)

The one where after the Republic's victory on Christophsis, Anakin and his new apprentice Ashoka Tano must rescue the kidnapped son of Jabba the Hutt.

3. Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008 – 2020)

The one where Anakin and Obi-Wan rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. Anakin is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy by Palpatine, succumbs, and becomes Darth Vader.

4. Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005)

In the second of the Anthology series, the young Han Solo meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca (and learns his family name) and encounters Lando Calrissian years before joining the Rebellion.
