There are now 7 'official' movies and one animated movie. Disney bought the rights to Star Wars from George Lucas for $4 billion and they announced that they would… make three new films. Episode 7 was released in 2015, with the last two scheduled for release in 2017 and 2019. The Star Wars Clone Wars (2008) animated movie was released. It is called Star Wars the Clones Wars and follows between The Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. It was the lead to the TV series (of the same name). There was also a TV movie released in 1978 called Star Wars Holiday Special. This is a relatively unknown movie in the saga due to its flop with audiences and was never rebroadcast. It was never released to VHS and its only real existence lies with fans who recorded the movie and now share it with download sites and torrent sharing sites. So you could call this one 'unofficial'. There are ewok movies but they have nothing to do with the story line of Star Wars. Here is an updated list in the order of release and release dates: Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977); Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980); Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983); Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999); Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002); Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005); Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008), animated, precursor to TV animated series; Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015) (MORE)

In Episode IV, all ofthe Tatooine scenes were filmed in Australia, including theunderground homes. In fact, in Australia, there are actually peoplewho live in houses exactly like those seen in Episodes II and IV.It's a different architectural design and George Lucas actuallypaid these people to borrow their homes for the shooting of hismovies. They're not just props and sets! You can actually go toAustralia and find these houses and live in them!
