The Star Wars prequels begin 32 years before the Battle of Yavin (BBY), the famous Death Star battle from the original Star Wars film. The discovery of 9-year-old Anakin Skywalker begins the Skywalker saga when Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn discovers that he is unusually strong in the Force – the energy field that connects all life in the universe and from which the Jedi draw their energy powers – and suspects that he may be destined to balance the Force.

Meanwhile, Darth Sidious, a Sith Lord allied with the dark side of the Force, works in secret to destroy the Jedi and manipulate the Galactic Republic’s political system. Exciting stuff!

All Hail Baby Yoda! Viewers were entranced by the little green dude who stole the show in The Mandalorian, a western-influenced action series centered on a laconic bounty hunter who gets caught up in gunfights on the edge of the galactic frontier. Set five years after Return of the Jedi, it features victorious rebels and shattered Imperial forces still engaged in combat, while also drawing on the backstory of Star Wars icon Boba Fett.

This recent Star Wars spinoff debuted as the flagship original series for the launch of Disney Plus in 2019. There are two seasons made up of satisfyingly bite-sized half-hour episodes. You don’t need to have seen any previous spinoffs to understand it, but Season 2 will be especially satisfying once you’ve seen The Clone Wars. For more details, check out our (spoiler-packed) recaps of The Mandalorian and its plethora of Star Wars Easter Eggs.

After the success of The Mandalorian, it was inevitable that the original bucket-headed bounty hunter would come back. Temuera Morrison takes on the role as an aging Boba Fett, fished out of the Sarlacc Pit and wandering the deserts of Tatooine in search of a new purpose. Technically it begs the question of where to place this show in the timeline as it actually tells two stories: a flashback right after Return of the Jedi detailing how Fett survived his fate in this film , and another in the same “present” as The Mandalorian.

However, it’s best to watch Boba Fett after The Mandalorian because there’s so much overlap between the two series – and one of the episodes serves as a pilot of sorts for The Mandalorian season 3. For all the Easter eggs and spoiler-filled discussions, watch our recaps of Season 1 of The Book of Boba Fett.
