Immediately, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Chewbacca became everybody’s favorite characters.
Then, in the 1980, The Empire Strikes Back introduced new characters to the story and names such as Boba Fett, Lando Calrissian, and master Yoda. The story also presented iconic locations in this universe such as the ice planet of Hoth and the Dagobah system, home of hermit, Yoda.
The Return of the Jedi was released in 1983 as the final episode of what is known today as the original trilogy. This sixth part (but third release) of the story, presented the final battle against the Galactic Empire, and the epic face-off between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.

Following Phantom, Episode II Attack of the Clones debuted in 2002 and Episode III Revenge of the Sith was release in 2005. These three movies developed the story of the Skywalker family. First, we meet young Anakin Skywalker as a slave, living with his mom. Then we travel to Tatooine to the heart-breaking sequence in which we learn that Queen Padme Amidala dies giving birth to Luke and Leia. Also, we witness Anakin embrace the Dark Side of the Force to become the dreaded Darth Vader.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the first stand-alone film, and covered new ground. During a chaotic period, a band of unlikely heroes leave their past aside to do the extraordinary: Steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction.
If they succeed, they would be remembered as the saviors of the galaxy. If they fail, death might be their destiny.
This 2015 film introduced a whole set of new characters and events and presented the big screen debut of characters such as Saw Gerrera, an Onderonian resistance fighter who, as a leading member of the Onderon rebels, fought against the Confederacy of Independent Systems on Onderon during the Clone Wars.
This title in the Star Wars canon can be related to three different productions. The first one, Clone Wars, also known as the Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars was released in 2003 and explores the conflict set in Attack of the Clones that directly leads to the events of Revenge of the Sith.
The Clone Wars were instigated by the Galactic Republic to stop thousands of planetary systems from leaving the Republic to form the Confederacy of Independent Systems, also known as the Separatists.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a 2008 animated film that takes place within the saga, also between Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: revenge of the Sith and follows Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as they help the Jedi clan to stop a Separatist droid army and the attempts of the Sith to gain control of the galaxy.
Moreover, 2008 was also the year for the release of The Clone Wars, a 6-season series that works as a prequel to both Star Wars movies, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. During this series, we become witness of the different adventures of the most famous Jedi knights such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan, Mace Windu as they dodge the evil plans of Count Dooku and Chancellor Palpatine.

Where should I start watching Star Wars: The original trilogy or the prequel trilogy?
This is a question that can lead to the fiercest debates among Star Wars fans and now, with Rogue One, things get even more complicated.
For traditional fans, a new Star Wars viewer should follow the release order of the movies, starting with 1977’s “A New Hope”. Then, move to the prequel trilogy that starts with 1999’s “The Phantom Menace” and finally, enjoy 2015’s “The Force Awakens” and 2016’s “Rogue One”.
Other fans argue that following Star Wars’ timeline and not the release dates is the best course of action to avoid confusion.
Additionally, you have the robust sub plots developed in both “Clone Wars” series and the 2008, animated movie “The Clone Wars” which are connected to the movies mentioned before, which makes understanding the timeline even messier.
Any way you choose, you are in for the most epic story in the galaxy. Enjoy!
