Your Definitive Star Wars Timeline is Here

With Star Wars: The Clone Wars returning for its final season on Disney+, now’s a good time to get a definitive timeline on exactly when each of our major Star Wars sagas took place. Sure, you can always Google to find out where each new Star Wars installment fits, but getting something official obviates that need. To that end, we can thank Disney+ for tweeting out an official timeline that situates all the feature films, animated series, and spinoffs in their proper order. While it’s not hard to figure out when The Mandalorian falls on the timeline, there are plenty of folks who might be interested in the series but not in finding out where it fits. Ditto for those folks who have heard good things about, say, Star Wars: Rebels or Star Wars: Resistance, and want to know when those animated series takes place.

Star Wars: Clone Wars begins streaming on Disney+ today. It is, officially, the series set the longest time ago, between the events of Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. 

For those of you who aren’t diehard Star Wars fans, the timeline helps establish where those spinoff films, Solo: A Star Wars Story and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story fit in. For our money, both Rogue One and Disney+’s series The Mandalorian are the most effective live-action additions to the canon. Meanwhile, Star Wars: Clone Wars gets to finish out its critically acclaimed run in style.
