THE Mandalorian has returned on Disney+ for a second season with Mando and The Child travelling all over the Galaxy.
With plenty new faces – and some old ones – Star Wars fans have a lot to sink their teeth into, but where exactly does the events of the series fall into the wider Star Wars timeline?
The franchise all began with the 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope, and was followed by The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983).
The final film in the original trilogy saw the fall of the Empire and the Rebels finally achieve victory, and The Mandalorian takes place five years after the events of that movie.
In the Star Wars universe, time is categorized around the Battle of Yarvin, which was the battle of the Death Star.
Return of the Jedi was set in Four ABY (After the Battle of Yarvin), so this means The Mandalorian takes place in Nine ABY.
So the Empire and the likes of Darth Vader has fallen, but it takes place years before the events of The Force Awakens and the First Order.
Show boss Jon Favreau previously said about the show's time frame: "It was really compelling to me, what happened after the celebration of the Empire falling.
“The revolution is successful, and then what happens? Now what? It’s fun at first, but it gets very complicated very quickly.
“The idea of that world of after the Return of the Jedi, and what would happen, and the type of characters that would survive.
“What it was like until the New Republic took over?"
The second season picks up straight after the events of season two, but there's no guarantee the already commissioned season three won't feature a time jump.
The Mandalorian season one and the first episode of season two are available on Disney+, with new episodes for season two dropping every Friday.
