Yoda in Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back movie

Lucasfilm

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

That is one of the most iconic lines in movie history. The 'Star Wars' franchise began in 1977 with the release of 'Episode IV - A New Hope' and since has spawned eleven feature films, three TV series (with a forth on its way), and countless video games and animated series.

The upcoming Disney+ series 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' recently released its full trailer and announced that the Ewan McGregor led show will premiere on May 27th. Set ten years after the events of 'Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith,' the series follows Kenobi on Tatooine as he keeps a watchful eye on a young Luke Skywalker. Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, and Hayden Christensen are also set to reprise their roles from 'Revenge of the Sith.'

In case you want to rewatch the entire 'Skywalker Saga' before viewing the new 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' series, here is a list of all the 'Star Wars' movies in chronological order.
