Star Wars Canon Chronology

This timeline follows only those movies, episodes, books, and comics which Disney considers official canon. It does not include the canon video games or The Clone Wars story reels, nor does it include any of the “Star Wars Legends” (Expanded Universe) material which was formerly considered canon. In the future, I plan to publish a timeline of the EU material, which will exclude all of the “canon” material released since April 2014.

  • Movies – Bold italicized text
  • “Episodes” – Bold text in quotation marks
  • Novels – Italicized text
  • “Short Stories” – Text in quotation marks
  • “Comics” – Italicized text in quotation marks

I generally don’t read comics, so placement of the comics (and some of the short stories) is based on the “Timeline of canon media” article on Wookieepedia. I have also not yet seen any of the regular episodes of Star Wars Rebels, so their placement is based on the Wookieepedia article as well. The placement of everything else is based on several sources, including my own observations.
