    We all know the line "A Long Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away" (judging by the topic this forums are mainly about) and this got me thinking what is happening Not So Long Ago In A Galaxy Not So Far Away (aka "Our" universe). So I came up with this rough timeline of movies (made by Lucas/Spielberg) to show us what modern times in the Star Wars universe look like.

    Indiana Jones 1-3
    Saving Private Ryan
    Red Tails
    The Pacific
    Band of Brothers
    American Graffitti
    Indiana Jones 4
    More American Grafitti
    Jaws
    Munich
    E.T.
    The Goonies
    Jurrassic Park 1-4

    *I know this films vary in tone but I would like to point out that life does have lighter and darker point at times.
    **I debated putting E.T. into the mix but I figured that very few people actually knew what went on and that the government kept the people who did know about E.T. quiet.

    Feel free to add movies if you think they would fit and if you see a movie that does not fit well please tell me why so it could be removed from the timeline.

    P.S. If this is not the right place for this mods please move this to the right place.

    American Graffiti happened in '62 and IJatKotCS in I think '58. So those two need to be switched in your chronology! Also, don't forget to put Poltergeist between ET and The Goonies!

    And surely Abrams' Super 8 belongs in there too. What year did that take place in?

    Are you trying to create some bizarre theory that every single Lucas/Spielberg film is set in the same universe?

    No. Not all. Close Encounters of the Third Kind just would not work.
