Star Wars has grown to become one of the entertainment industry’s biggest franchises over the decades. It started out with 1977’s Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Since then, the franchise expanded intro a trilogy, followed by a prequel trilogy and a now an in-production sequel trilogy. It has also given rise to books, animations, standalone movies, games, toys and practically all kinds of novelties you can think of.
The Empire Strikes Back released in 1980, followed by Return of the Jedi in 1983, completing the first trilogy. The prequel trilogy includes Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Attack Of The Clones, and Revenge Of The Sith.
Younger generations and older fans have both been enjoying the sequel trilogy, beginning with Episode VII: The Force Awakens in 2015. Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release in 2017. The third installment, whose title is yet unknown, is set to be released in 2019.
The first stand-alone Star Wars film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, premiered in December of 2016. It is set to be followed by a Han Solo movie in 2018 and a third movie in 2020.
George Lucas’s universe has seven TV series to its name so far, though not all are considered canon. Most notable among them are The Clone Wars and Rebels, which follow events that predate the first trilogy of films.
