Star Wars Movies Titles in Chronological Order

Posted on Posted in Geek Stuff


The best way to watch the Star Wars saga films is in its chronological order. Because the movies were released on different decades and the production order does not match the story order, watching it in its release order requires you to jump around the timeline quite a bit. It also makes it feel less like a linear narrative.
