I’ve put together the ultimate guide to watching movies in order lists from my blog- check these posts out when you have questions on what to watch next! These lists cover Marvel movies in order, Star Wars movies in order, Harry Potter movies in order, Disney Halloween movies and Disney Christmas movies— and more.
Blogging about entertainment over the years means I get a lot of emails and requests from my community of movie lovers.
One of the biggest requests I’ve received revolves around the best way to watch movies in order when discovering a new fandom.
The Ultimate Guide to Watching Movies in Order
Believe it or not, there are people who haven’t jumped on board the Millennium Falcon just yet!
Gasp, I know.
We’re talking things like Star Wars and Marvel, though there are others that make the movies lists I’ve put together.
Here are a few links to check out that will hopefully help your next movie marathon go smoothly.
Movies in Order Lists
The first thing to know is that most of these movies in order lists come with options.
There’s really no bad way to watch a Marvel movie marathon or to catch up on the Harry Potter movies. Trust me, I’ve tried them all!
But sometimes you might be short on time or looking to follow in a specific order such as chronological order or release order.
These movies in order lists try to provide you with the reasons why you might want to watch a new fandom in a specific order.
Start Your Marvel Movie Marathon
Marvel is HUGE right now.
YUUGEEEEE I tell you!
And it’s about to get even bigger in 2019.
Captain Marvel comes out in March and Avengers 4 (untitled as of yet) is scheduled for a May release.
And if you want to stay up to date on the upcoming Marvel Movie Lineup, be sure to stop by and check this post periodically. As releases are announced, I’ll make sure this list is up to the minute!
The first post I wrote along these lines came about just over a year ago.
I was lucky enough to attend the Thor: Ragnarok red carpet premiere and a few friends, family, and blog readers were interested in all things Marvel leading up to my trip.
They wanted to know what movies to watch before Thor: Ragnarok.
To help them follow along and get ready for all things Thor, I started with this post:
Turns out, it was super helpful!
And to date, it’s the most popular Marvel Movies in Order post I’ve written.
I figured if this was a good starter post, then maybe I could write another one with more details and ways to watch Marvel movies in order.
This mega Marvel movie marathon post was born!
It’s all there for you, laid out with a variety of movie watching options.
You can watch the Marvel movies in chronological order, Marvel movies in release order, and there’s even a short list for folks with less time.
But really, you just want to watch them all!

Start Your Star Wars Movie Marathon
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… I watched my first Star Wars movie in the theaters.
My parents couldn’t wait for a babysitter to see The Empire Strikes Back, so there I was, 3-years-old, watching my first Star Wars film.
Parenting done right: because I was hooked and have been a life-long fan of the franchise!
Just like with Thor, I started with a primer for The Last Jedi:
And in case you didn’t know, we’ve got a Star Wars movie coming in December 2019- so you’ll want to start your Star Wars movie marathon now to get prepared!
This sounds like it’s going to be the last Star Wars movie for a while, so I’m going to be soaking it in when it hits theaters next year.
What better way than a deep dive into the various lists of Star Wars movies in order?
From a New Hope to Solo, you’re going to need these lists to see which way makes sense to you.
Are you a Star Wars chronological order watcher? Or maybe a Machete Order watcher?

The big news surrounding Harry Potter right now is the controversial 2nd Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Critics are mixed; some are loving the movie and the characters.
Others are questioning JK Rowling and her vision.
The good news? There are more Harry Potter movies coming, so I’m hopeful that some of those answers will be revealed.
