-Pre-Republic Era (Which I haven't even looked into yet)
-Old Republic (Where the comic series Knights of the Old Republic take place as well as the very fun video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, and even a series called Darth Bane which I also haven't looked into)
-Rise of the Empire (Where episodes 1-3 of Star Wars and... The Clone Wars... take place)
-The Rebellion (Where episodes 4-6 take place)
-And many more afterwards.
Since they said Harrison Ford would be playing in the new movies I would assume it doesn't take place before the Rebellion. But with Disney in charge what kind of plot will it have? Everything seems to have been solved with the whole Sith problem... So what are they planning? I would assume we're going to see a load of new characters unless they get the bright idea to let it star the originals? I doubt that but will the new characters be related to the old ones?! Oh so many questions why not post what you think down below!
