Star Wars order of all movies and series

The multitude of main films, spin-offs and now also series from the Star Wars universe can easily lead to confusion about the correct order and chronology. To make sure you’re well prepared for this, we’re presenting various ways in which you can experience the adventures of Luke Skywalker and co.

In total, we have listed three well-known ways of following the plot of the Star Wars films. While the first two basically follow conventional guidelines, the third option is somewhat more individual. After that, we also provide you with an overview of the now well-filled series front of the franchise and place the respective plot correctly in time between the movies. So you’ll be well prepared for your next Star Wars movie session and will always know where you are in the timeline.

Star Wars Order – Option 1: Following the theatrical release

The easiest way to go through the “Star Wars” film series is to follow the order in which they were released. A total of twelve official films have been released since 1977. These include nine main films, two spin-off parts and one animated film. The two productions “Ewoks – Caravan of the Brave” and “Ewoks – Battle for Endor” are optional, as the plots are not part of the main canon.

The first trilogy, consisting of Episodes IV, V and VI, forms the original series and chronologically lies in the middle of the entire “Star Wars” universe. The prequel films followed with Episodes I, II and III. These take up events before the original trilogy. The three sequels, consisting of Episodes VII, VIII and IX, follow on from the end of Episode VI.

The animated film “The Clone Wars” fits directly between Episodes II and III. Finally, the spin-off films “Rogue One” and “Solo” complement the main series by providing additional stories and background to certain characters and events. This results in the following sequence:

Star Wars Order – Option 2: Sorted by time

An alternative approach is to watch the films in chronological order of their plot. To do this, the titles of the original films were numbered consecutively and, in the case of the first part of “Star Wars“, renamed “A New Hope“.

Star Wars Order – Option 3: In “Machete Order”

The third option was established by blogger Red Hilton. This so-called “Machete Order” focuses mainly on Luke’s story and prevents important twists from being spoiled for first-time viewers. In contrast to the chronological order, the surprises of the original trilogy are preserved in this arrangement.

Episodes II and III act as a kind of flashback. Episode I is optional, as the plot here is not central to understanding the main story and makes it easier to focus on the important characters. In this way, the story begins and ends with Luke, which means that episodes VII, VIII and IX, in which the protagonist plays more of a supporting role, are also omitted.

The two spin-offs “Rogue One” and “Solo” can equally be omitted in this order, as neither story is crucial to understanding the overall plot.

100 years before the events surrounding Luke, Obi-Wan and Rey take place, “The Acolyte” sheds light on the final days of the “High Republic” era. An era in which the legendary Jedi Knights were at the peak of their power and influence and were convinced that they had finally wiped out the Sith. The story follows Auro, an ex-Jedi student, who is torn between the dark machinations of the Sith and her former master’s attempts to return her to the path of light.

Which Star Wars order is the right one?

Ultimately, there is no correct answer as to which order is actually best for watching the ‘Star Wars’ series, as each method offers its own advantages and disadvantages. When viewed by release date, the twists remain unexpected.

The chronological order of the episodes allows for a deeper understanding of the plot and provides all the important background information, but anticipates some of the iconic surprises. Meanwhile, Machete Order avoids spoilers by including Episodes II and III, but can be distracting due to the stylistic difference between the trilogies. Of course, we can’t dictate which order you should ultimately choose.
