How many Star Wars movies are there?
The original Star Wars began in 1977 and consisted of three movies, also known as the original Star Wars trilogy.
"Episode IV: A New Hope" (1977) was the first movie of the franchise, which was followed by the sequels "Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" (1983).
After that, a prequel trilogy was created under George in the early 2000s.
The trilogy was completed with the release of "Episode I: The Phantom Menace" (1999), "Episode II: Attack of the Clones" (2002), and "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" (2005).
However, in 2012, George sold the production company to Disney, clearing the path for a new sequel trilogy.
The order of the three movies was "Episode VII: The Force Awakens" (2015), "Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" (2017), and "Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)."
All nine movies fall under the "Sky Walker Saga."
Similarly, two films outside of the saga were released called "Rogue One" (2016) and "Solo" (2018).
With more movies in the production phase and Disney releasing television series on their streaming platform, fans are more than excited to know the future stories and new adventures.
