Release order

The release order follows, merely, the same order in which the films were released.

It gives you the notion of following Star Wars in the same way that the productions were released over the years. Thus, it simulates what the fans that have followed since the first, launched in 1977, have lived.

It would be as follows:

Movies in order of release

  • Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope
  • Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi
  • Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith
  • Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi
  • Han Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars Episode 9: The Skywalker Rise

Series and animations in order of release

  • Star Wars The Clone Wars (Six first seasons)
  • Star Wars Rebels (All seasons)
  • Star Wars Resistance (All seasons)
  • The Mandalorian (All seasons)
  • Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Seven

Chronological order

The chronological order is valid for those who seek to follow the story by following the facts in an organized manner, exactly where each fact fits, one production after another.

In this sense, the chronological order of Star Wars mixes films and series, including animations.

It is as follows:

  • Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars The Clone Wars (All Seasons) *
  • Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith
  • Han Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars Rebels (All seasons)
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope
  • Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi
  • The Mandalorian (All seasons)
  • Star Wars Resistance (Season 1)
  • Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens
  • Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi
  • Star Wars Resistance (Season 2)
  • Star Wars Episode 9: The Skywalker Rise

* Season 7 of Star Wars The Clone Wars can also be watched right after Star Wars Episode 3, as it goes directly into the history of the film and can deliver some spoilers to those who have never seen it.

Machete Order

The machete order is not official and was created by fans. She mixes the films in an unusual way, to try to pass a greater surprise experience to those who are watching.

It was created by a Star Wars fan blogger named Rod Hilton and is followed by some people today.

A curious fact is that the machete order cuts the film Star Wars Episode 1 – in the creator’s opinion, dispensable – and also does not consider the most recent trilogy (Episodes 7, 8 and 9), because it was created before.

According to its creator, this is the fastest way to watch Star Wars and get to know the story focused on Luke Skywalker, one of its main heroes, in a more exciting way – so it also does not include series or cartoons.

Thus, the machete order looks like this:

  • Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope
  • Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith
  • Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi

If you want to watch the Star Wars basics as quickly as possible, it might be a good option.

Choose the order that seems right to you and enjoy!
