The force is strong with this one...fzzt *reveals lightsaber*

Star Wars canon has gone through a lot in the past few years. The Pre-Disney era was a mess with countless comics, novels and games. Most of which contradicted each other. But there have recently been two timelines released.

The Timeline released by Disney

And The Timeline contained in the novel "Lords of the Sith":

So which is correct? They are both pretty much the same, apart from the inclusion of the Marvel Comics series. The second one goes into a much greater level of detail by including dates. However I prefer the first timeline given by the novel "Lords of the Sith".

There are however other ways of viewing the series:

1.) A shockingly obvious one but more than likely the most popular..... Just the six films

-The Phantom Menace

-Attack of the Clones

-Revenge of the Sith

-A New Hope

-The Empire Strikes Back

-Return of the Jedi

2.) For haters of the prequels, the name changes and the remastered additions.....

-Star Wars (or just "A New Hope")

-The Empire Strikes Back

-Return of the Jedi

3.) For people that can't let go of the EU.....

-There are countless numbers of Comics, Novels and Games. So I'm not even going to try.

4.) For lovers of Filoni's work.....

-The Phantom Mence

-Attack of the Clones

-Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2014)

-Revenge of the Sith

-Star Wars: Rebels (2014-)

-The Original Trilogy

5.) Or my personal favourite.....

-The Phantom Menace

-Attack of the Clones

-Star Wars Clone Wars (2003-2005) *note the difference in show

-Revenge of the Sith

-The Original Trilogy

But unfortunately these are no longer canon timelines. If you don't want to be confused stick to the films, but if you don't mind complication then I'd recommend watching timeline 5. However I now follow the timeline in "Lords of the Sith" (the first official canon timeline).

There are loads of timelines to follow in the Star Wars Universe. What do you subscribe to? One of the new official timelines ("Lords of the Sith" or Disney released). Or do you prefer one of the five other timelines. Or maybe you have a different one of your own. Whichever please tell me in the comments below. Thankyou for reading.
