This series has taken the world by storm with its captivating storyline and stunning visuals. But where does it fit into the Star Wars movie timeline?
The Mandalorian Series
First things first, let’s talk about The Mandalorian series itself. This is a live-action TV show that premiered on Disney+ in 2019 and was created by Jon Favreau. The story revolves around a lone bounty hunter who is hired to protect “The Child,” also known as Baby Yoda, from various threats across the galaxy.
The Star Wars Movie Timeline
Now, let’s dive into the Star Wars movie timeline. The franchise has released nine main saga films so far, starting with “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” in 1977 and concluding with “Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker” in 2019.
The events of these films take place over several decades, with each movie picking up where the last one left off. The timeline is as follows:
- Prequel Trilogy
- Episode I: The Phantom Menace (32 BBY)
- Episode II: Attack of the Clones (22 BBY)
- Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (19 BBY)
- Original Trilogy
- Episode IV: A New Hope (0 BBY)
- Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (3 ABY)

- Sequel Trilogy
- Episode VII: The Force Awakens (34 ABY)
- Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (34 ABY)
- Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (35 ABY)
Where Does The Mandalorian Fit In?
The Mandalorian series takes place five years after the events of “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.” This places it firmly in the timeframe between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy.
To be more specific, The Mandalorian takes place in 9 ABY (After the Battle of Yavin) which is five years after the fall of the Empire and six years before the events of “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.” This means that some characters from the original trilogy, such as Boba Fett, could potentially make an appearance in future seasons.
So there you have it – The Mandalorian fits into the Star Wars movie timeline between “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens.” If you’re a fan of both the movies and this new series, then you’ll definitely want to keep watching to see how it all ties together. With stunning visuals, a captivating storyline, and connections to beloved characters from previous films, there’s no doubt that The Mandalorian will continue to be a hit among Star Wars fans for years to come.
