When does the Mandalorian series take place in the Star Wars timeline?

The Mandalorian has been a smash hit amongst old Star Wars fans as well as the newer ones since it was released. The Disney+ series tells the tale of Din Djarin, a bounty hunter and one of the few remaining Mandalorians in the galaxy. The show is one of the few Star Wars live-action productions to take place between the original trilogy and the recent sequel trilogy.

Naturally, it can prove to be confusing to keep track of how the timeline of the show matches up with the films – but we are here to sort it out for you in no time.

So where exactly does the Mandalorian fit in the Star Wars timeline?

Before we delve any deeper, it is worth knowing that – like the Gregorian calendars that are followed in the real world – the timeline revolves around a single event.

In this case, it’s the Battle of Yavin (otherwise known as the first assault on the Death Star in A New Hope). That’s referred to at 0 BBY – Before the Battle of Yavin. The Mandalorian takes place in 9 ABY – nine years after A New Hope and, interestingly, five years after the Emperor’s defeat in Return of the Jedi.
