Is Rogue One Episode 8? Does Rogue One happen before Episode 1? Here's the quick answer of where Rogue One falls on the Star Wars timeline.

Is this movie around the same time period as Episode 3? Well, kinda after that. The movie's whole plot is taken from a sentence in the opening crawl of "A New Hope", which vaguely describes a group of Rebels stealing the plans to the Death Star from the Empire. By the time "A New Hope" starts, the rebels and Princess Leia have the plans and are being pursued by Darth Vader. So Rogue One is the story on HOW the rebels get the Death Star plans.

Episode 3......ROGUE ONE.......Episode 4.

Does that help?
