Star Wars broke the world of entertainment news when the franchise first burst onto the scene in 1977, and movies haven’t been the same since. It changed the format, and Star Wars is now one of the biggest media properties in the world.

Jump to the Star Wars movie you’re most interested in to get the latest news.

How To Watch Every Star Wars Movie In The Best Viewing Order

Jump to the Star Wars series you’re most interested in to get the latest news on that show.

History Of Star Wars On TV

Star Wars has made numerous attempts at jumping to television and making a splash in the world of entertainment news. It began with the laughably bad holiday special. That was followed by two Ewok adventure telefilms and even a droid-focused Saturday morning cartoon series.

Aside from some marginally successful animated shows like Clone Wars, none of it really worked until November 12, 2019, when The Mandalorian debuted on Disney’s new streaming network, Disney+. The Pedro Pascal-led series has launched an entire universe of Star Wars series on the streaming platform.

Now Star Wars is a streaming juggernaut, with top-rated television shows and news of new shows being released monthly.
