Where is the series in the Star Wars timeline?

In broadcast in France on Disney + from April 7, the series The Mandalorian is eagerly awaited by the French public. Here’s what you need to know about his situation in the great timeline of the Star Wars saga.

[Mis à jour le 02 avril 2020 à 16h19] With the approach of the French broadcast of the series The Mandalorian on Disney ++, let’s take advantage of the calm before the storm to evoke what we know about the scenario of this one. First of all, note that the series starts between episode 6, The Return of the Jedi, and episode 7, The Force Awakens. To be completely precise, according to the official calendar, The Mandalorian is located five years after the Battle of Endor (that is to say in the year 9 after the Battle of Yavin, portrayed in A New Hope). In terms of geopolitical situation, the Galactic Empire suffered a heavy defeat on Endor: the Emperor Palpatine and his right arm Darth Vader are both dead. The New Republic was created from the ashes of the Empire and established the seat of the Senate on the planet Chandrila. The remaining Empire forces are dispatched to the edge of the galaxy, in the Outer Rim where the series The Mandalorian takes place.

As its name suggests, the series The Mandalorian follows a Mandalorian, a man of few words who lives according to the martial code of the Mandalorians and works for the bounty hunters guild. He sells his martial skills to the highest bidder and makes contracts in the Outer Rim until the day when an enigmatic client asks him not to kill someone but to recover for him a “child” whom he must bring back healthy and except, whatever the cost. The Mandalorian later discovers that it is not just any child, it is a youngster from the species of Yoda …

The flagship series of the launch of the Disney + platform on the subscription streaming market, The Mandalorian is an esteem and commercial success for the house with big ears. It was therefore quite logical that a second season was produced. The Mandalorian season 2 was filmed at the beginning of 2020 for a release in all likelihood at the end of the year. Doubts arose, however, as to a possible delay. The world having been plunged into a health crisis because of the coronavirus pandemic, it would not be surprising that the post-production of this season 2 is complicated, which could lead to a delay of diffusion on Disney +. Lucasfilm and Disney have not officially communicated on this subject, however.
