    Hi all,

    I'm gonna give the Clone Wars another try soon-ish and I wonder what's the best way to view the series? I understand that the release order episodes jump around from arc to arc a bit, and I'm more interested in watching the arcs as Complete wholes. So, does anyone have a good viewing order reccomendation?

    Thanks :)

    Right, so not the individual-arcs-by-themselves thing then; got'cha :)

    Out of curiosity, does anyone du the arc thing? (I saw a Hellogreedo vid and he's doing it, and I became intrigued).

    Oh, my Google skills suddenly found something. Here's hellogreedo's list:


    Thoughts?

    I all depends on what exactly you are planning to do. If you want to rewatch the entire series, than chronological is the way to go. Most of these arc are self-contained anyway. As for the others, for example he went from Supply Lines straight into the main Ryloth episodes. But, Supply Lines also goes right into Ambush (S01E01) and shows how the king of Toydaria is gradually swayed to ally with the Republic and by waiting for the Ryloth episodes you can get the sense how this occupation was going on for a while, as you watched other stuff happening.
    Besides, that list is not a viewing order in general, it's the viewing order in case you don't have a lot of time.

    Stupid question, I'm sure, but... Does CW s7 slot in at the tail end of the chronological viewing order?

    I ask 'cause I have yet to get around to re-watching the show, but now that we'll be getting D+ soon with a brand new season I want to do a full TPM+AotC+CW+RotS prequel extravaganza, and I wish to be sure I view the show in the best way possible :D (Last I saw it, I felt meh about much of the show, but I'm a different person now and I really want to love this part of the SW and are planing to set myself up for a good time, as it were).

    With the Kenobi & Cassian shows on the horizon, I want to get as awesome a dive into the PT as I can to give the bridging shows their best chance to succeed with me :)

    Yep. There’s a significant time skip in between Seasons 6-7, which is when the unfinished Crystal Crisis on Utapau arc, Dark Disciple novel, and the Son of Dathomir comic all take place.

    Chronological is the only way that anyone should view the SW franchise as a whole, IMO.

    Hey everyone, (sorry for bringing this back up but my crippling insecurities are acting up :rolleyes: )

    So, I started this thread back in August 2018, planning to launch into a completest Star Wars watching marathon. For various reasons, this didn’t happen (basically, because D+ launched MUCH later than I anticipated here in Norway), but now I’m ready to do this thing!


    I’ve got my D+ up & running and am ready to go, and I’m VERY excited to do this :D
    (Note, I’ve watched CW season 1-5 once before, like 6-7 years ago, but don’t remember much at all; hence the stupid questions).

    So, as discussed earlier, my gf and I will be watching CW in chronological order, as per the viewing order suggested on starwars.com.
    My question is related to where to put the PT films in regards to the Clone Wars series. I ASSUME that no CW episodes chronologically take place before Attack of the Clones, right? (I really cannot remember...)

    As for Revenge of the Sith, are any of the CW episodes set post-RotS? And if so, should one insert RotS into the CW season 7 somewhere, or just hold off on RotS and let that cap off the CW anyway?


    Thanks :)

    PS: This is finally happening! Woot! :cool:

    @Angelman I know this sounds crazy, but if we are going to try to stay somewhat chronological I would watch TPM, AOTC, CW and stop after S7 Ep9 , start ROTS and stop after the jedi retrieve palpatine, watch S7 Ep 10. Go back to ROTS watch through some of order 66, then stop and go back to S7 ep 11. After that episode finish ROTS, and then go back to CW and watch the final episode.

    I hope this made some sense! I think I might go back through and watch it this way myself!

    Thanks, it makes sense but I think it's a bit too disjointed for my current re-watching. I would prefere not to split up the RotS experience, if that makes sense? Perhaps watching the final arc -- Siege of Mandalore -- would be a workable compromize? Thoughts?

    I think it could be! And I definitely understand what you mean about the ROTS experience, and I think the Siege of Mandalore arch really takes it to another level also.

    Agreed with the people above in that chronological order seems to be the best way to do it. In fact, I myself want to rewatch The Clone Wars again soon. I've only seen the series once before, and at the time I did it by episode release date, but I think chronological order would be very enriching. :)

    Although, as mentioned above, I'm debating about what to do with the Siege of Mandalore arc. I'd prefer to watch ROTS all in one viewing. But should the Siege of Mandalore come before it, or after? Hmm...

    I say watch all of The Clone Wars, then the Siege of Mandalore, and finish off with Revenge of the Sith. It’s kinda jarring either order you go in for the Siege and ROTS, but watching the Siege first is a better alternative in my personal opinion. If you go with ROTS first, then it’s weird to see Anakin and Obi-Wan being chill and going about their business again if you watch the Siege right afterwards.

    The final scene of baby Luke with the twin suns is how the prequel era should always be finished out in a Star Wars marathon imo, no matter what order you watch them in. That alone warrants saving Revenge of the Sith for last.

    That's a very good point, @The Hero With No Fear, and I think we'll do it that way and watch RotS last with the entire CW series as context. No matter the internal cronology of the thing, RotS really is the dramatic end-point of the entire thing. (And, half the point of us doing this is trying and learn to love RotS -- a film that is not our favorite -- the way large swats of the fanbase does)

    We're in the second season now, with only two arcs left to go (Dutchess of Mandalore & Boba Fett arcs). Several arcs have been quite alright thus far, with just a couple of stinkers and two or three individual episodes that were excellent. Star Wars is cool :D
