Jon Favreau's STAR WARS TV Series Timeline Revealed

Jon Favreau's STAR WARS TV Series Timeline Revealed

It is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. We have a lot to look forward to, various film franchises and television series in development. Now we know when Jon Favreau's Star Wars show will take place.

In an interview with Nerdist, Jon Favreau teased what audiences can look forward to in his live-action television series, which will air in Disney's streaming platform. The series that he will be writing and executive producing will have new characters and will be set seven years after the events of Return of the Jedi.


It's unclear what the plot will be, this notion of the timeline is interesting. Return of the Jedi is set at 4 ABY, with some books and shows in the years after. But from there, the tie-in novels Last Shot and Bloodline take place in 7 ABY and 28 ABY, making a big jump.
 
This means Favreau's series takes place around 11 ABY -- a point in time that's unexplored in Star Wars canon. For some, that proximity to Return of the Jedi could be seen as amazing, considering how many stories there are to explore.
 
Favreau chimed in saying, “If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn’t have believed you. I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure.”
 
Are you excited to see what Favreau does with Star Wars?
