Star Wars is a long-running space opera multimedia franchise, which began from the 1977 film Star Wars (retroactively retitled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) directed by George Lucas. Throughout the films in the Star Wars saga, creator George Lucas was determined that the universe he envisioned would have a "lived-in" look to it. Thus, the many weapons seen in the saga are in fact visually modified or based upon real-world weapons.
The following lists the media set in the universe of Star Wars:
The Original Trilogy (1977-1983)
The Prequel Trilogy (1999-2005)
The Sequel Trilogy (2015-2019)
The Mandalorian (2019-)
