How many times have you thought about doing a Star Wars mega-marathon that includes all the movies and series? It is not necessary to have much knowledge of the franchise to know that it’s not a few hours…and only the connoisseurs are aware of the madness we are putting on the table.
A Star Wars movie marathon is already a considerable undertaking, but things get complicated when we add the series. The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett aren’t a big problem, but The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels are another matter. Let’s start with the simplest: a movie marathon would take us nothing more and nothing less than 25 hours (approx).
Episode I: The Phantom Menace: 02 hours and 16 minutes.
Episode II: Attack of the Clones: 02 hours and 22 minutes.
Episode III: Revenge of the Sith: 02 hours and 20 minutes.
Han Solo: A Star Wars Story: 02 hours and 15 minutes.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: 02 hours and 14 minutes.
Episode IV: A New Hope: 02 hours and 05 minutes.
Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back: 02 hours and 07 minutes.
Episode VI: Return of the Jedi: 02 hours and 15 minutes.
Episode VII: The Force Awakens: 02 hours and 18 minutes.
Episode VIII: The Last Jedi: 02 hours and 32 minutes.
Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker: 02 hours and 22 minutes.
In other words: watching a marathon of all the Star Wars movies so far would take us little more than a day uninterruptedly. Add an extra hour or two between trips to the bathroom and preparing both food and snacks. Things get complicated when we add the Star Wars series up to Ahsoka (5 episodes): total of 158 hourswhich is 6-7 days (approx).
The Clone Wars (T. 1-7): 54 hours and 21 minutes.
The Bad Consignment (T. 1-2): 14 hours and 53 minutes. Obi-Wan Kenobi (T. 1): 04 hours and 03 minutes.
Star Wars Rebels (T. 1-4): 28 hours and 26 minutes.
Andor (T. 1): 08 hours and 23 minutes.
The Mandalorian (T. 1-3): 16 hours and 39 minutes
The Book of Boba Fett (T. 1): 05 hours and 28 minutes
Star Wars: The Resistance (T. 1-2): 15 hours and 39 minutes
The Jedi Chronicles (T. 1): 01 hour and 21 minutes.
Visions (T. 1-2): 05 hours and 33 minutes.
Ahsoka (until Episode 5): 03 hours and 47 minutes.
USE: The list does not include LEGO movies, series and shorts, Star Wars: The Adventures of the Young Jedi and other minor ones.
Taking all this into account, if you want to do a marathon including the films and series mentioned, then it would take you a whopping 183 hours, which has been 7-8 days. Once again, keep in mind that all figures are approximate and do not take into account breaks to go to the bathroom, eat and replenish some snacks… much less sleep.
In conclusion: currently it is almost unviable do a marathon of all the series and movies (and it will get worse over time), unless you have a lot of free time and little desire to sleep. The movie marathon is more viable and it is possible to watch several series in one weekend. The biggest problem on the list is The Clone Warswhose duration is very long.
