Rebels

5-0 BBY


Watch contemporaneously with the entries below.  Each entry will detail when it should be watched in relation to Rebels.   

 

Battlefront: Twilight Company

Chapter 1

6BBY

 

The majority of this book takes place in 3 ABY.  However, there are four Flashback Chapters involving the main character, Namir (NOTE: he goes by different names before he joins the rebellion).  For now, just read Chapter 1, which is the first flashback.  We'll pick back up with this one soon.  Listen to contemporaneously with Season 1 of Rebels.  

Lost Stars

Chapter 1-6

6 - 4 BBY


We left off with the Prologue so now we'll pick up with Chapters 1-6, which can be listened to concurrently with the 1st Season of Rebels.

Rebel Rising

6-5 BBY


We covered Chapters 1-10 earlier so now we pick up at Chapter 11 and continue through the end of Chapter 23.  Listen to concurrently with Rebels Season 1. 

Leia: Princess of Alderaan

4-3 BBY


This book can also be listened to concurrently with Rebels Season 1 as well as the beginning of Season 2.  You just want to make sure you finish before you get to Season 2, Episode 12: A Princess on Lothal.  

Forces of Destiny 
S2E15: A Disarming Lesson

4 BBY


Watch this episode of Forces of Destiny between Season 1 and 2 of Rebels by clicking the link above.

Battlefront: Twilight Company

Chapter 7

4BBY

 

The majority of this book takes place in 3 ABY.  However, there are four Flashback Chapters involving the main character, Namir (NOTE: he goes by different names before he joins the rebellion). For right now, just listen to Chapter 7, which is a flashback that occurs in 4 BBY. 

Thrawn

5-2 BBY

 

We covered Chapters 1-19 earlier so now we'll pick up at Chapter 20 and finish the book concurrently with Rebels Season 2.  Be sure to finish before you get to Rebels Season 3. 

Forces of Destiny

S1E8: Bounty of Trouble

S1E10: Newest Recruit
S1E18: Crash Course

S2E1: Hasty Departure

3 BBY

 

Watch Bounty of Trouble after "A Princess on Lothal" which is Season 2, Episode 12 of Rebels.  The other three episodes should be watched in the order they are listed above in between Seasons 2 and 3 of Rebels. You can watch these episodes by clicking the blue links above.  

Rebel Rising

5-3 BBY


We left off at the end of Chapter 23 so now we'll pick up with Chapter 24 and continue through the end of Chapter 42.  Remember to skip over "Month #4" as we'll do all the month chapters just before Rogue One. 

 

Listen to this section concurrently with Seasons 3 of Rebels.  For continuity purposes, make sure you get through Chapter 34 before you watch Season 3, Episodes 12 and 13: Ghosts of Geonosis Parts 1 & 2.  

Forces of Destiny:
S2E11: Art History
S1E7: The Stranger
S1E15: Accidental Allies
S2E4: Jyn's Trade

3-2 BBY


Art history can be watched anytime after Rebels Season 3, Episode 16: Legacy of Mandalore.  Once you reach the end of Chapter 42 in Rebel Rising you can go ahead and watch The Stranger, Accidental Allies and Jyn's Trade by clicking the blue links above.   

Thrawn Alliances

(Empire Era)

2-1 BBY

 

We covered the Clone Wars Era of this book earlier in the marathon. So now we only have to focus on the other half, which is good because you want to try to squeeze this one in by starting it after the end of Rebels Season 3 and finish before Season 4, Episode 6: Flight of the Defender.  

 

To stick with just the Empire Era of this book, listen to the First Prologue and then Chapters 1, 3, 8-9, 12-13, 16-17, 20 and then the Second Epilogue.  

Thrawn Treason

1-0 BBY

 

Rebels Season 4, Episode 10: Jedi Night is so emotional that you may need to step away from your TV for a while after watching it. Fortunately, that is exactly where Thrawn Treason picks up (technically the novel begins mid-way through Jedi Night, after Thrawn speaks with Tarkin, but you can't stop watching that episode). You'll need to finish the book before Thrawn's appearance in the Rebels Series Finale, Episode 15: Family Reunion and Farewell.  

Lost Stars

Chapter 7 & Chapter 8 (5:23)

2-1 BBY


Here we'll do Chapter 7 and up to minute 5:23 in Chapter 8 of Lost Stars after you finish Treason & Rebels but before you move on to Rebel Rising.  Note that our next Lost Stars entry will be within the From A Certain Point of View entry.  

Battlefront: Twilight Company

Chapter 21

0 BBY

 

The majority of this book takes place in 3 ABY.  However, there are four Flashback Chapters involving the main character, Namir (NOTE: he goes by different names before he joins the rebellion). For right now, just listen to Chapter 21, which is a flashback that occurs in 0 BBY. 

Rebel Rising

Chapter 43 - End of Book
3-0 BBY


Here we pick up Rebel Rising at the beginning of Chapter 43, listen through the end of Chapter 46, then go back and do all the "Month" chapters (1-6). 


The Epilogue is an alternative take on Jyn's meeting with Mon Mothma and Rebel Command at the beginning of Rogue One.  So if you want, you can watch up until that part of the movie, pause it, listen to the epilogue, and then continue on with...   

Rogue One

0 BBY
 

Watch contemporaneously with Battlefront II (see below). 

Battlefront II: Instant Action (Scariff) 

0 BBY

 

Under the Instant Action Mode of Battlefront II, there are various maps you can play that line up with various moments throughout the Saga.  You can play them contemporaneously with their respective battles to feel even more immersed in the action. Play the Scariff map contemporaneously with Rogue One. 

 

Episode IV: A New Hope

From a Certain Point of View

Lost Stars

Battlefront: Twilight Company

0 BBY - 0 ABY

 

I've selected 11 short stories from From a Certain Point of View and incorporated them, along with some Chapters from Lost Stars and Battlefront: Twilight Company, into an Episode IV mashup which goes as follows:

 

Listen to FCPOV: Raymus after finishing Rogue One and before you start A New Hope.  

Listen to Lost Stars, Chapter 8 minutes 5:23 - 15:21.  

Watch A New Hope until Ben yells "No Luke. Its too dangerous!" (40:04)

Listen to FCPOV: Master & Apprentice

Watch A New Hope through Han & Jabba's meeting (54:11)

Listen to FCPOV: Added Muscle

Watch A New Hope through Alderaan's destruction (59:11) 

Listen to FCPOV: Eclipse

Listen to Lost Stars, Chapter 8, 15:21 - Chapter 9, 15:22

Listen to FCPOV: Verge of Greatness

Listen to Twilight Company flashback Chapter 32.  

Listen to FCPOV: The Trigger

Watch A New Hope through Tarkin says "This had better work" (1:36:39)

Listen to FCPOV: Time of Death

Listen to FCPOV: There is Another

Listen to FCPOV: Palpatine

Watch A New Hope through the End of the Movie.

Listen to FCPOV: Contingency Plan

Listen to Lost Stars, Chapter 9, minute 15:22 - End of Chapter.   

Listen to FCPOV: The Angle

Battlefront II: Instant Action

0 ABY

 

Under the Instant Action Mode of Battlefront II, there are various maps you can play that line up with various moments throughout the Saga.  You can play them contemporaneously with their respective battles to feel even more immersed in the action. Play the Yavin 4 and Tatooine maps after A New Hope. 

Lost Stars
0 ABY

 

Listen to Chapters 10-12 of Lost Stars concurrently with the Solo comic below.

Han Solo

0 ABY


This is the first of a few comics taking place shortly after A New Hope. This one should be read concurrently with Heir to the Jedi.  

Heir to the Jedi

0 ABY

 

Listen to this concurrent with the Han Solo comic. To stay true to chronological order, you should finish both before you move on to the comics below.     

Star Wars

Darth Vader

0 ABY

 

These two comics are grouped together because they overlap each other so much chronologically. Here is the starting order to follow going by their issue number:

Star Wars 1-3
Darth Vader 1
Star Wars 4
Darth Vader 2-4
Star Wars 5
Darth Vader 5
Star Wars 6
Darth Vader 6

Star Wars 8 - 12

Darth Vader 7-13

Star Wars 13

Darth Vader 14

Star Wars 14

Darth Vader 15

Star Wars 16 - 19

Darth Vader 16 - 25 

Star Wars 1-25


Read concurrent with Lost Stars and the Battlefront novels listed below.  See Wookieepedia for the remaining chronological order of these comics.  This much at least gets you to our next entry...

Doctor Aphra

0 BBY

 

I had the Dr. Aphra comics on here until the audiobook came out. Admittedly, this site is geared more toward audiobooks than comics (for now).  You can't go wrong either way though.  If you do the audiobook, listen to concurrently with the comics above.  If you do the comics, start this series after you finish Star Wars #25 and read concurrently with the Lost Stars and Battlefront 2: Inferno Squad entries below.   

Battlefront II: Inferno Squad

0 ABY


This is a companion novel to 2017's Battlefront II campaign mode, which will be featured later in our marathon. The first chapter in this book takes us back to the Battle of Yavin, so you could argue this should come earlier on our list. But Heir to the Jedi has to come first to time up with the comics. So just consider the first chapter to be an introductory flashback.  

The Freemaker Adventures

3-4 ABY


This TV show may be geared towards the little ones, but it has plenty of humor for the adults (e.g., Graballa the Hutt is played by the same guy who does Master Shake's voice in Aqua Teen Hunger Force and they are basically the same character... which is a good thing). While I doubt it is considered Canon, its story ties in heavily to some of the most important events in Empire and Return of the Jedi.  For now, watch episodes 1-3 prior to watching The Empire Strikes Back.

Lost Stars
1 ABY

 

Listen to Chapters 13 and 14 here.

Battlefront: Twilight Company

6 BBY - 3 ABY


Skip over the flashbacks we did previously (Chapters 1 and 7) and listen to Chapters 2 - 6 and 8 - 12, up until minute 31:18 of Chapter 12.  Once there, stop and watch the FOD episode below.  Then we're ready to start watching The Empire Strikes Back.

Forces of Destiny

S1 E5: Beast of Echo Base

Watch this anytime during, but before the end of, Chapter 12 of Battlefront: Twilight Company by clicking the blue link above.  You should watch this before watching Empire.
