All the talk we’ve been doing over the past couple of weeks about Star Wars: Bloodline, and the deep analysis of the characters and events depicted in there, inspired me to finally put something out there that I’ve been working on behind the scenes for a while now.
It’s a New Republic Timeline resource. We’re all so curious (me too!) about what happened between 4 ABY and 34 ABY – that is, between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens – and we’ve already received such tantalizing hints about that time period, that I thought I would try to capture the main events, movements, and character beats that have happened in that three-decade span.
To date, there are more than a dozen works of fiction and non-fiction that cover the time period from 4-34 ABY, and we have them all listed on the Timeline resource page. We haven’t integrated all the information that’s out there into the Timeline, but we’re filling it in as we go, and we have most of the major points in there for you. If there’s a reference source you don’t see in the list on the Timeline page, then please let us know in the comments below.
In fact, we’d love to hear what you think of this resource, and whether it helps you to have a clearer picture of the state of the galaxy for those three decades. Please share those thoughts in the comments, too!
