We already spend far too much time thinking about Star Wars as it is, and that ratchets up to 11 around May the 4th, a silly pun meme that was turned into a fake holiday devoted to everybody’s favorite space fantasy franchise. Naturally, there’s no better time of year to argue about which pieces of the incredibly expansive Star Wars franchise are the best.
It can certainly be easy to forget the full breadth of the Star Wars franchise, since there are so many old chunks that very few people care about anymore. But since the franchise remains one of the biggest ever, it’s all been preserved and is available on Disney+. Except, of course, the original versions of the original Star Wars trilogy–only the updated, worse versions of those films are available to stream legally.
So if you’ve forgotten what all there is to watch in this franchise, we’ve assembled a ranked list of every Star Wars movie and TV show that’s ever been released, from the ones you know (like the three movie trilogies) to ones you’ve forgotten ever happened (like the Ewoks and Droids cartoons from the 1980s). Except the Lego Star Wars specials. You’re on your own with those.
You’re gonna wanna strap in, because this journey is not going to be a short one.
