I know I posted about this before, but a lot has changed since then.
So, if you were going to try to watch it ALL in chronological order, except the Lego cartoons, would it go like this?
- Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace
- Star Wars – Episode II: Attack of the Clones
- Star Wars: Clone Wars (animated microseries)
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars (3D CGI movie)
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars (3D CGI series)
- Star Wars – Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
- Star Wars: Droids (animated series)
- Solo: A Star Wars Story
- Star Wars Rebels
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
- Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope
- The Star Wars Holiday Special
- Star Wars – Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
- Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure (made for TV movie)
- Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (made for TV movie)
- Star Wars: Ewoks (animated series)
- Star Wars – Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
- The Mandalorian
- Star Wars Resistance
- Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens
- Star Wars – Episode VIII: The The Last Jedi
- Star Wars – Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker
Forces of Destiny and Galaxy of Adventures are messing with me by jumping all over the place. Does Blips belong there too?
Shut up about canon.

Also, would be fun to see in the mix:
- Laugh It Up, Fuzzball: The Family Guy Trilogy
- Family Guy: Blue Harvest
- Family Guy: Something Something Something, Dark Side
- Family Guy: It’s a Trap!
- Robot Chicken: Star Wars
- Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II
- Spaceballs: The Animated Series
- Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back
Light it up in the comments. Maybe someday we’ll continue Star Wars movie nights. Peep all my Star Wars related posts.
One thing people seem to be good at is arguing over texts. We can argue different points about the same information. How many interpretations are there for the constitution? And that’s just one language. Hit up the Torah, Bible, or Koran that’s been translated into different languages a few times and it’s absolute chaos. People seem to focus on minutiae instead of the big picture.
I can easily imagine a post-apocalyptic dystopian future where the Star Wars films have become the basis for religion. People will subscribe to their own versions of the Jedi and Sith philosophies and have an overall high regard for the force. Some people will say it’s all fiction. Magicians will use levitation and spoon-bending illusions to “prove” that the force is real.
I can imagine sects breaking out of each group of trilogies, finding their own interpretations of the overall themes to be the only correct way to see things.
Some will say Anakin/Vader brought balance to the force. Some will say it was Luke. Some may focus on the new characters to come. Some cults will say you have to go to the dark side before you can be redeemed by the light and that is the only true path to Jedi salvation.
Some will argue that the original films unedited are the only true word. Some will argue that the standalone films and animated series are like the apocrypha, and can’t be true canon.
Monasteries will open and instead of vows of silence, they will talk like Yoda.
Books will be written trying to prove that the holiday special did in fact exist.
People will kill each other arguing over who shot first.
I think you now have a script for Idiocracy 2: Idiocracier.
