The best comprehensive Star Wars Timeline putting all the books films, comics,  film, TV and games  in Chronological order based on Year Zero as the time of ‘ Star Wars IV: A New Hope’. The full index below…….. All dates are given as Before ‘A New Hope (BNH) and After ‘A New Hope’ (ANH).

As far as I can work out Steve was an early contributor to Jedinet and he produced this definitive timeline some years ago. It has not been revised for a while and, with the TFA changes to the cannon, it has become a little incomplete. However, it is still a very useful resource putting much of the diverse Star Wars material into context and order. The Timeline is again now open and if we have missed anything or not got round to including it please feel free to let us know. We appreciate your assistance.

Jedinet has changed ownership a few times, over the years, and the new editors really don’t know who Steve was, but we are very grateful to him for his efforts. If you know who Steve was (you may even be him) please  contact us.
