After revealing a new timeline order at Star Wars Celebration 2023, Lucasfilm now has descriptions for each era and a list of which story belongs where.
The Timeline For Star Wars' 22 Movies & Shows
Not only did Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy unveil this franchise timeline divided by era at Star Wars Celebration, but she also announced two brand-new eras bookending periods fans already knew.
The following is Star Wars' official list - and descriptions - of these nine eras in their timeline order and with their corresponding movies, shows, and video games.
Note: Star Wars fans used the Battle of Yavin and the destruction of the Death Star as a reference point for measuring time. Therefore, events occurring before A New Hope are noted with BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin) and ABY (After the Battle of Yavin).
Dawn of the Jedi (0 BBY - 25,000 BBY)
While many of the eras on this list have existed for some time, that's not the case for Dawn of the Jedi, as it was one of the two recently announced at the latest Star Wars Celebration.
Set more than 25,000 years prior to The Phantom Menace, James Mangold is attached to direct a Star Wars film set in this era which has been described as a Biblical epic about the "first Jedi to wield the Force."
The Old Republic (25,000 BBY - 1000 BBY)
Since Disney purchased Star Wars in 2012, Lucasfilm has yet to release a canon project within this era.
But according to Star Wars, The Old Republic is when The Republic and the Jedi Order emerge, and it's also when a "schism within the Jedi leads to the creation of the Sith..."
The High Republic (300 BBY-82 BBY)
Star Wars describes The High Republic as a "golden age" of The Republic with Jedi Knights protecting the galaxy and heightened interest in exploring the Outer Rim.
The following are the current Star Wars set during this era:
This list looks to expand on the small screen in 2024 with The Acolyte, Star Wars' first live-action Disney+ series set during the end of The High Republic era.
Fall of the Jedi (32 BBY-19 BBY)
Spanning George Lucas' Prequel Trilogy, the Fall of the Jedi begins with the return of a "long forgotten menace" and centers on a "full scale war with the Jedi Knights at the frontlines."

Rise of the First Order (34 ABY - 35 ABY)
