Disney Plus is a huge topic of conversation right now with millions of people stranded at home with nothing to do. On Friday, Onward will make its debut on the streaming service which we're insanely excited about. But, what about some of the other series on Disney Plus that'll take much longer to get through therefor holding us over just a little longer from complete boredom? With the announcement of the all-new Mondo Avengers: Endgame Vinyl, we got to thinking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how confusing it may be for some. We all know Star Wars was released in a wack order, and it can be a little confusing to understand where to start in the Marvel Cinematic Universe too. Let's break these down and create a timeline of where to start and end in each major series in the Disney Plus cannon.

Star Wars

With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker being added to Disney Plus just a few days after the parks closed indefinitely, *almost* the complete Star Wars Universe is now available on Disney Plus. The only exception is Solo: A Star Wars Story which is expected to release on July 9th, The OG movies came out in a weird order, with the middle three movies in the main story coming our first, followed by another three which were all prequels, and finally three more acting as sequels. So, which movies should you watch first? Well, to best understand the story, you'll want to watch the movies in the following order:

  1. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (set 32 years before A New Hope)
  2. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (22 years before)
  3. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (19 years before)
  4. Solo: A Star Wars Story (about a decade before)
  5. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (ends moments before ANH)
  6. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope 
  7. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (three years after A New Hope)
  8. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (four years after)
  9. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (34 years after)
  10. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (34 years after)
  11. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (34 years after)

This is the chronological order that the movies are intended to be watched in. It's weird though because you start with horrible, early 2000's graphics and CGI (as well as JarJar Binks which nobody wants) and progress into even worse 80's movie technique that's so bad-yet so revolutionary in film that it'll be remembered for the rest of time. After your blast to the past, the last 3 movies are highly advanced 2016-present day movies. The entire Star Wars chronological viewing experience is just weird and somewhat confusing, but necessary to understand the story. If you'd rather just watch the movies in the order they came out and have a better progression of sci-fi space movie technology, here's the order in which the movies came out:

  1. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
  2. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  3. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)
  4. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)
  5. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
  6. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  7. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)
  8. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
  9. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (2017)
  10. Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
  11. Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

This will mix the story up a bit, and honestly isn't the most recommended way to watch the movies. The ultimate viewing order which consists of every series in the Star Wars Universe right now is as follows:

  1. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (set 32 years before A New Hope)
  2. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (set 22 years before A New Hope)
  3. The Clone Wars animated series (begins 22 years before A New Hope, ends 19 years before)
  4. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (set 19 years before A New Hope)
  5. Solo: A Star Wars Story (set about a decade before A New Hope)
  6. Star Wars: Rebels animated series (set five years before A New Hope, with an epilogue set much later)
  7. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (ends moments before A New Hope)
  8. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
  9. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (set three years after A New Hope)
  10. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (set four years after A New Hope)
  11. The Mandalorian (set around nine years after A New Hope)
  12. Star Wars: Resistance animated series (set 34 years after A New Hope onwards)
  13. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (set 34 years after A New Hope)
  14. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (set 34 years after A New Hope)
  15. Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (set 35 years after A New Hope)

 

Currently the two ongoing series are Star Wars: The Clone Wars which is currently in its final season, and the Mandalorian which is currently in production for its second season. There's also a Obi Wan Kenobi live action show in production, which will take place in-between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Marvel

The Thanos reign is officially over within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we move on to a new era of an unknown sort. With a plethora of upcoming Marvel shows and movies in production right now, we're only getting started with the studios growing list of offerings through 2022 and beyond. But as for the Thanos area, there's a LOT to work through. If you wanna save some time and only watch the essential movies, this is the order to watch to follow the storyline:

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger (1943 – 1945)
  2. Captain Marvel (1995)
  3. Iron Man (2010)
  4. Iron Man 2 (2011)
  5. The Incredible Hulk (2011)
  6. Thor (2011)
  7. Avengers (2012)
  8. Iron Man 3 (2012)
  9. Thor: The Dark World (2013)
  10. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
  11. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2014)
  13. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
  14. Ant-Man (2015)
  15. Captain America: Civil War (2016)
  16. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2016)
  17. Doctor Strange (2016 – 2017)
  18. Black Panther (2017)
  19. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
  20. Ant-Man and The Wasp (2017)
  21. Avengers Infinity War (2017)
  22. Avengers: Endgame (2019)

This order will best follow the MCU story and is the most recommend way to view. If you're looking for the release order, which doesn't follow the story and only really ties together because of the end credit scenes (which don't actually matter anyway) this is how you'll want to view:

  1. Iron Man (2008)
  2. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
  3. Iron Man 2 (2010)
  4. Thor (2011)
  5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
  6. Marvel’s The Avengers (2012)
  7. Iron Man 3 (2013)
  8. Thor: The Dark World (2013)
  9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
  10. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
  11. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
  12. Ant-Man (2015)
  13. Captain America: Civil War (2016)
  14. Doctor Strange (2016)
  15. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
  16. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
  17. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
  18. Black Panther (2018)
  19. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
  20. Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)
  21. Captain Marvel (2019)
  22. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
  23. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
  24. Black Widow (was May 1, 2020, now TBA)
  25. The Eternals (November 6, 2020)
  26. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 12, 2021)
  27. Untitled third Spider-Man movie (July 16, 2021)
  28. Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021)
  29. Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5, 2021)

Now, if you want the ultimate Marvel experience and you want to watch every single movie and show currently available in the Marvel cannon, it would take you over 9 days of continuous viewing to complete all of them, but we're stuck in our homes anyway so why not right? Also note that not all of these titles are available on Disney Plus. Movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Ant Man and the Wasp are slated to make their way to the streaming platform later this year. None of the one-shot films are on Disney Plus either, however can be found in the bonus features of their respective films (most can also be found online).

This is the ultimate list and while yes, we recommend viewing in this order, we understand why some would chose to skip some of the less-essential films and shows in the list. Better yet, the Marvel Universe is just beginning! there are six Marvel films in production and even more shows in production, getting ready for their Disney Plus releases.

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe 

  • Black Panther 2 (May 6, 2022)
  • Captain Marvel 2 (TBA 2022)
  • Ant-Man 3 (TBA 2022)
  • Blade (TBD)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (TBD)
  • Untitled Fantastic Four film (TBD)

Ultimately, we hope these lists help you better navigate some of the most popular movies on Disney Plus and use this as a tool to help keep you occupied during quarantine!
