Canon Star Wars Release Dates

Release Dates, Star Wars

One of our most requested topics is the Star Wars release dates. It’s come up in Google Search Console and NicheIQ on Ezoic a few times, so we thought we’d review all the canon screen media. So, we won’t be including the 2003 Clone Wars or the cheesy Holiday special from the late 70s. Oh, and it will also not cover the smaller screen projects like Star Wars Adventures or Forces of Destiny. The LEGO special will also not be included.

Individual television episodes will not be used but instead placed within Seasons when the Season starts and ends. For a FULL timeline of canon Star Wars media, please use the Wookieepedia Page on the subject.

Also, the release dates will be the American dates as they are the most well-known.

So, let’s jump into it.
