With 4 seasons, the production is set 14 years after Episode III and five years before Episode IV.

9 – Star Wars Resistance

The recent animated series mimics Japanese anime style and takes place three decades after the events of The Return of the Jedi, in the trilogy Star Wars and tells the story of a pilot who was recruited by the New Republic to spy on the First Order. The series also starts six months before The force awakens and eventually intersects with the story of the film.

8 – Caravan of Courage

Starting a film franchise for TV in 1984, Caravan of Courage takes place on the moon of Endor and introduces the Ewoks in a story in which they help two young human brothers while trying to locate their parents. The production won an Emmy for Outstanding Special Visual Effects the following year.

Mandalorian, launched last year, the series may have only one season with eight episodes, but it has already left its mark on the universe of Star Wars. Thanks to Clone Wars, the Mandalorian people have piqued the interest of fans for some time. With this series, the dreams of fans of the franchise come true as they really get to know the lifestyle and adventures of these people.

4 – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The 2016 spin-off did a great job of explaining the story behind how the rebels were able to acquire the secret plans of the death star they used in A New Hope. It made sense that all the main characters would complete the mission at the cost of their lives, since they were not part of the original trilogy, and since the mission itself was dangerous.

3 – Third trilogy
