The first seven editions of this chronology appeared on the imdb.com message board of Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series. At the moment, only the  7th Edition survives, as the Internet Movie Database has undertaken to delete inactive threads of a certain age. With the 8th Edition now issued, I image the defunct 7th will vanish before long. The earliest editions featured many changes between each, since, as episodes came out, the proper chronological order became more clear. Each time more clues were revealed and as I did more research, I refined the timeline.

Before you ask, “Wait, why does this episode go here rather than there?” know that in a future post, I’ll provide a walk through of the Chronology, wherein I’ll point out the details in the episodes and arcs that connect them to each other. I’m open to other thoughts as to how better they may fit together and to details I may have overlooked.

Also, there may come future episodes where information gained forces me to alter the chronological placement of some of the episodes, at which time I’ll update the Chronology again. For now, it seems, the series is advancing in a direct linear fashion, rather than its previous method of bouncing back and forth between the timeline.

Enjoy!

[Update: 02/08/12 It was brought to my attention that StarWars.com specifically cites the Season 4 of The Clone Wars episode “Shadow Warrior” has taking place BEFORE the Mon Cala Trilogy. Their explanation and evidence supports this, so the next edition will be revised to reflect it. Please take note.]
