I think the Wachowski brothers realize that The Matrix phenomenon might just be their one-hit-wonder, and it seems like they sure are doing a lot to extend the franchise beyond a simple three movies… They’ve actually written everything you see below, with the exception of five of the Animatrix stories.

Matrix Timeline:

  • The Animatrix was sort of a prequel to the Matrix series.

  • The Matrix

  • The Matrix Reloaded

  • Enter The Matrix was loaded with over an hour of live action footage shot specifically to fill in some backstory for Reloaded.

  • The Matrix Revolutions

  • The Matrix Online plans to continue the story indefinitely.

This chat transcript with Jason Hall from Monolith says it all:

“The Matrix Online is the true continuing story of the Matrix franchise. Larry and Andy oversee it personally and the story will continuously evolve. We have a whole team here that will be doing nothing but adding to the game on a monthly basis. We are not messing around with this. This game is going to be like no other.”
