With D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, currently underway, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed not only new Star Wars content, but an official timeline for the galaxy far, far away.
The timeline was tweeted by Ryan Penagos, Vice President and Creative Executive of Marvel New Media. The timeline features all of the films (including upcoming The Rise of Skywalker), animated series and even the Galaxy's Edge theme park.
This new timeline also confirms the official titles for each era of the series. Prequels (the first chronological episodes as well as Clone Wars) take place during the "Age of Republic" timeline, while works between Solo: A Star Wars Story and Return of the Jedi take place at the "Age of Rebellion" and everything between Resistance and The Rise of Skywalker exist within the "Age of Resistance. Those who are eager to watch the full franchise in chronological order are sure to take advantage of this new timeline.
