It’s going to be a big year Star Wars fans. A new season of The Mandalorian has hit our screens, Ahsoka is debuting this year and there are many more projects hyper-speeding their way into production. If you’re hoping to celebrate the galaxy far far away with a solid binge session, we’d like to help facilitate the logistics of that.

Let’s start with what we’re going to watch

If you’d like to work your way through the movies alone, there are 12 in the collection. For the sake of this piece, I’m including all side stories and spin-offs in this list of films so flicks like Solo: A Star Wars Story win a place in the list.

The full collection of Star Wars movies in order includes:

Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)
Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)
Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)
Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (2017)
Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

However, if you want to get the complete Star Wars experience you’re going to want to add major series to your binge session, too.

Obviously, you need to cut the list somewhere because there are also LEGO series and a heap of animated titles as well. I’ve decided to work with:

  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars (series)
  • Star Wars Rebels
  • The Bad Batch
  • The Book of Boba Fett
  • Andor
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Tales of the Jedi
  • The Mandalorian

You can find all of these on Disney +.

If you think I’ve missed anything major feel free to yell at me about it in the comments and I’ll do my best to fill any gaps.

How long will it take you to watch it all?

The films work out to be about a day’s worth of watching. I’ve worked it out to sit around 27 hours and 15 minutes long.

Series are considerably longer, of course, especially when you look at Clone Wars which is seven seasons long.

The Mandalorian (including the recent season three) is 1,020 minutes so far which equals about 17 hours. 

The Book of Boba Fett is about 5 hours and 30 minutes, and The Bad Batch is about 16 hours.

Clone Wars is 2 days, 18 hours and 30 minutes. (Unless you only watch key episodes, of course.)

Star Wars Rebels is about one day, 13 hours and 30 minutes and Tales of the Jedi is 1.5 hours.

Obi-Wan Kenobi came out to 4 hours and 30 minutes and Andor ended up around 9 hours and 30 minutes.

If my brain hasn’t turned to mush at this point (which it may have), that looks to be about 160 hours of screen time aka about 6.5 days.

May the force be with you, pals. You’ll need it to get through this binge watch.

You can find all of these Star Wars titles on Disney+  in Australia so hop on the service now to start your mission.
