How Does The Star Wars Movies Work In Chronologically

How does the Star Wars movies work in chronologically?

The chronological order of the movies are ( Phantom Menace (I), Attack of the Clones (II), the Clone Wars (not a live action and isn't an episode as such ), Revenge of the Sith (III)), A New Hope (IV), The Empire Strikes Back (V) and finally Return of the Jedi (VI). George did episodes IV, V, VI first as he thought their story was stronger than the first three. Disney are currently making episode VII and will be set thirty years after the events of Return of the Jedi. ( https://www.universeguide.com/entertainment/starwars ).

In what chronological order do the Star Wars movies run?

If you want to incorporated the clone wars, then I would watch in this order

1. Phantom Menace
2. Attack of the Clones
3. Clone Wars
4. Revenge of the Sith
5. A New Hope
6. Empire Strikes Back
7. Return of the Jedi

And due to George Lucas tinkering with the originals, and especially Return of the Jedi, it should be watch in chronological order.... ah, but there is only one caveat that I must ad, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi both had suprises (both had unexpected revelations) which makes those scenes anti-climatic if the movies are watched chronological instead of years the films were release - just an opinion),

What are the names of all star wars movie chronologically?

You are correct Episode IV: A New Hope was indeed the first Star Wars movie released, and was originally just entitled "Star Wars" the episode title came only after it was clear that there would be sequels...and prequels eventually. Yes it matters a great deal with which movie you start, and the information I have stated above is one of the more obvious reasons the order you watch the movies in should be 4,5,6,1,2,3. If you would like another logical reason why this should be the order, lets take into consideration what the question truly is. Essentially you are asking, "should I watch THE trilogy, or the PREQUEL trilogy?" Prequels and Sequels are essentially the same animals (hence the similarities in the names) and both of them serve the exact same purpose, however they serve it in different ways. The goal of both prequels and sequels is to FOLLOW UP and CONTINUE an already established story arc. The only difference between them is that chronologically one happens before the already established story arc (prequel) and one happens after. Regardless of this stipulation both of them are supposed to FOLLOW UP/CONTINUE a work that is already established and well known. George Lucas created Eps IV-VI first and that became an established well known, and well loved story arc. Lucas made the prequels to complete the story, and fill in the blanks and questions. Therefore all of the plot twists, revelations, and all of the other beloved nuances of cinema, were designed specifically for the order in which they released. If you watch them in chronological order (for the very first time) you will lose the power and the significance of the plot twists and significant revelations, and the entire story will become a little more lackluster. In terms of logical story flow and the consistency of plot development it is just as incorrect to watch a Prequel before an original work, as it is to watch a sequel before an original work. While I respect "Kenny"s point of view, as a life-long Star Wars fan it pains me to see people recommend watching the movies in chronological order (if its your first time) and not only does that order not make sense to me as someone who grew up with Star Wars, I have just explained to you why it does not even make logical sense if you are seeking the "REAL" experience.

If you have never seen them and are unaware of the biggest twist in cinema history then you should definitely watch them as follows:Episode 4: A New HopeEpisode 5: The Empire Strikes BackEpisode 6: Return of the JediEpisode 1: The Phantom MenaceEpisode 2: Attack of the ClonesEpisode 3: Revenge of the SithEpisode 7: The Force AwakensEpisode 8: The Last JediRogue One and Solo could basically be watched whenever especially Solo but I’d recommend watching 4–6 before watching Solo so you can understand a feel for the characters more.You can start with Rogue One in the sequence because 4 directly follows it and it really isn’t a bad intro to Star Wars.To watch them chronologically if you know the twist:Episode 1: The Phantom MenaceEpisode 2: Attack of the ClonesEpisode 3: Revenge of the SithSolo: A Star Wars StoryRogue One: A Star Wars StoryEpisode 4: A New HopeEpisode 5: The Empire Strikes BackEpisode 6: Return of the JediEpisode 7: The Force AwakensEpisode 8: The Last JediEpisode 9:(Untitled, December 2019)Note after going through these I highly recommend The clone Wars(Takes place between 2 and 3) and Rebels animated series(Takes place between 3 and 4), also in 209 there will be a live action series released on Disney’s streaming platform that will take place between Episode 6 and Episode 7.Enjoy!

What's the exact chronological order of Star Wars the Clone Wars?

The first was Star Wars I, The Phantom Menace.
It was Anakin as a 10 or 11 year old boy.
The next was about 10 years later, Star Wars II, Attack of the Clones.
After that comes Star Wars II.V, The Clone Wars Movie. (LOL).
Then comes every and all Clone Wars episode.
These cover Anakin at about 22.
(I'm using Anakin and Luke for bases)
After that is Star Wars III, Revenge of the Sith.
It's Anakin at 25 or so.
Then, 20 or so years later, it's Star Wars IV, A New Hope.
Luke is 18, 19, or 20.
Then comes Star Wars V, The Empire Strikes Back, about 6 months later.
Last comes Star Wars VI, Return of the Jedi, probably a year later.
The movies are in correct order, but I'm not sure about the ages

Star Wars Chronological order?

i am looking for more of a beggining to end summary here
fill in anything i am missing and tell me what is wrong

ok, so obi-wan and qui-gon go on some negotiation mission and the get captured, then escape

then the need to go to that desert planet and find aniken in a junk yard and felt the force with him, he then raced for his freedom

then they thought he was the chosen one, but yoda said he was too old and too angry to become a jedi

then he saves them in a war (questionable)

then it skips 10 years later and he is a jedi and fights in the clone wars, (they win?)

then in the next episode they find out who the other sith was and aniken goes to the dark side

then padame(?) has their children a boy and a girl

why does she send luke to tatoone?

then the original trilogy happens, i havent seen the first 2 in a while (i need a memory refresher)

then the last one they win against vader and sidius and they have a party with the ewoks



what am i missing?

Instead of derisively blowing off your question I'll attempt to give you an answer as these movies actually were fairly popular among children and have gained a bit of a cult following since their release.Lucas and the production crew originally envisioned this as being set 150 years after ROTJ, and personally I rather enjoy the thought of it. Far after the movies and interstellar wars are over, when the Galaxy has quieted down, this little adventure takes place out on Endor, since long forgotten. I think it fits well with the surreal nature of the films.Alas it was not to be though, this timeline would have raised questions about Wickets age as he still appeared as young in the Ewok movies as he did in ROTJ. So for practical matters it was decided that the films would be set right after Empire strikes back 3 years ABY (after the battle of Yavin). The propaganda, Cindel, actually makes an appearance later in the EU as a journalist during the Black Fleet Crisis.No matter what you think of it, they added a good deal of backstory to the forest moon of Endor along with a charming story and for that I appreciate them.

Watching all of the Star Wars films, including Solo: A Star Wars Story, would take 22 hours and 30 minutes if you were watching the original editions of the original trilogy, and 22 hours and 40 minutes if you were watching the special editions.
