Timelines by Category

While many of the timelines have multiple forms of media, most fit under one or more categories, though some fit under more than one. Here are those categories and the timelines associated with them.

If you’d like a list of ALL timelines, visit our Alphabetical Index page.

This film timelines page lists all of the franchises with film as its core medium or the tentpole platform for a franchise. Many of the timelines on this list take place over multiple mediums with tie-ins in comic, novel, or games. This page lists all of our timelines with film as the core medium, meaning the medium that first appeared, or for which the franchise is best known. Just as Star Wars is best known for its films, which also came first.

Additionally, we hope you enjoy these and other timelines on the site. Therefore, let us know if there’s a timeline you want to see, and don’t see here. Contact us through the contact page and let us know. Chances are, if it’s a multi-media/multi-series story, we’ll want to have a timeline for it. Finally, if you see something we should change, let us know.
