That’s because the release order jumps around the Star Wars timeline instead of following it chronologically.

Star Wars fans can now watch all of the franchise’s content on the new Disney+ streaming service.

And to give fans some clarity on Star Wars Day – May 4th – Disney+ revealed perhaps the best way to see it all.

Of course, there are plenty of competing ways to view the sci-fi franchise as well.

Star Wars films in release order

When it comes to the major Star Wars films, there are different orders that you can watch.

One of the most popular ways is Release order – because the world saw them that way.

Star Wars movies in chronological order

Many fans argue chronological order is the best way to see the entire Star Wars series, but it can get a little confusing with all the new additions. Here’s how to watch the Star Wars movies in chronological order:

  • Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (plays 32 years before A New Hope)
  • Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (22 years ago)
  • Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (19 years ago)
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story (about 10 years ago)
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (ends just before A New Hope begins)
  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
  • Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (only three years after A New Hope)
  • Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (four years later)
  • Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (34 years later)
  • Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (34 years after A New Hope)
  • Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (35 years after A New Hope)

Star Wars movies in machete order: explained

There is also another pattern called The Machete Order created by Rob Hilton in 2011. This was designed to dispose of The Phantom Menace, one of the less popular films in the franchise.

And it hides the secret of Darth Vader the longest.

  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
  • Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  • Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

You then get the Machete Order with the sequel saga:

  • Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
  • Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
  • Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars in the Rinster Order

There is an alternative to this called The Rinster Ordernamed after mega fan Ernest Rinster.

This is similar to the Order of the Machete but retains The Phantom Menace:

  • Star Wars: A New Hope
  • Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
  • Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Of course, you can watch Star Wars in any order.
