THE Mandalorian has gripped viewers with its thrilling live-action sequences and bounty-hunting adventures.
But you could be forgiven for being a little confused about where the new Disney series fits in the wider Star Wars timeline. We've got the answers…
When is The Mandalorian set in the Star Wars universe?
The Mandalorian is set five years after Return of the Jedi and 25 years before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In other words – it's placed in-between the original Star Wars trilogy and the newer sequel trilogy.
Fans might have been able to guess this from the resurgence of the Empire and Luke Skywalker's return in season 2.
As fans will know, the Star Wars timeline revolves around a single event – the Battle of Yavin which is depicted in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Events before the Battle of Yavin are marked BBY -Before the Battle of Yavin – and events that occur after are marked by ABY – After the Battle of Yavin.
