Disney Plus offers handy Star Wars timeline before The Clone Wars returns – CNET

Anakin Skywalker in animation

The timeline of Anakin Skywalker and his family’s adventures is a bit complicated, but Disney Plus tweeted a reminder.


The seventh season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars begins on Disney Plus this Friday, but you might need a reminder on when the story itself takes place. The streaming service knows this, so on Tuesday it tweeted a useful graphic placing the 11 movies, the live-action show and the three animated series in a timeline.

The nine Skywalker Saga movies — from The Phantom Menace to The Rise of Skywalker — are on the bottom row, while the spinoff movies and shows are up top. The Clone Wars takes place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the final two films in the prequel trilogy.

The timeline also reminds us that you can’t watch all of Star Wars on Disney Plus just yet; the 2018 spinoff movie Solo and The Rise of Skywalker are “coming soon.” The former will hit the service in July (you can still watch it on Netflix), but we don’t know when the latter will arrive (it came out in December and is still playing in some theaters).

It doesn’t include the canon video games, novels or comics, but those would require a much bigger graphic.
