The Phantom Menace kicks off what most Star Wars fans refer to as the prequel trilogy, which also includes Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. An official timeline for the new Star Wars media initiative The Upper Republic has been released. Separate several different eras in the Star Wars saga. And it gives each one a new name. Perhaps the most interesting title comes from the trio of films directed by George Lucas that was released in 1999 and ended in 2005.
The Star Wars prequel trilogy is now officially called Fall of the Jedi. This includes the three films mentioned above that trace Anakin’s backstory, from being a slave in the Tatooine desert to his turn to the dark side as Sith Lord Darth Vader. Fall of the Jedi also includes the animated series The Clone Wars. There are 6 eras contained in the new timeline, which begins with The High Republic.
The High Republic is a new story initiative spanning several different mediums, including books, comics, and at least one upcoming television show. None of the new projects contained in La Alta República are included in the timeline itself. The timeline arrives with the release of Marvel Comics’ The High Republic # 1 and the new Star Wars novel The High Republic – Light of the Jedi. These posts are the first to be released and predate the events of The Phantom Menace by several decades.
The High Republic and Fall of the Jedi are the first two eras represented in the new timeline. They are followed by the third era, which is now known as the Kingdom of the Empire. Below this heading is the upcoming animated series The Bad Batch, which follows a group of Clone Troopers after The Clone Wars.
Also included in this Solo era, the second Star Wars Story released that follows Han and Chewbacca in their early days.
The fourth era recorded in the timeline is called the Age of Rebellion. Included in this era is the second Star Wars Rebels animated series followed by the first Star Wars story, Rogue One. The original trilogy also falls under the Age of Rebellion, which includes A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.
The fifth era on the map is called The New Republic and contains only The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars television show. But it can be safely assumed that the recently announced Disney + series Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic are also part of this era.
The final era included in this new timeline is called the Rise of the First Order. Includes the canceled Star Wars animated series Resistance and the new Disney film trilogy with The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker.
