Postby poncho » Tue Dec 06, 2016 12:18 pm

whats the time frame between each films?

so between anh and esb and so forth for ep 4-6

i assume esb and rotj is a couple of month or so

anh to esb must of been a while because the death star was 3 1/4 rebuilt in esb

Interesting - I'll be honest, I assumed they were in 'real time', so around 3 years.

You'd think it would take 5 or 6 years to get close to building a death star!

I seem to remember something about a couple of years before Empire and a year before Jedi.

I'd like to know how long a period of time ESB is set over. Either it's set over months or it all happens in a day. :lol: And you thought you had a hard day.

I think it's over a pretty short period.

Hoth must only be a few days - maybe a week?

Ignore dagobah because that seems to take longer than everything else running parallel to it. The asteroids and Bespin can't have been too long either as it was pretty much all action. Could have taken a few days to get to bespin I guess.

On bespin Han and Leia didnt really settle in before it all went to shit, they could have been tortured for a while, maybe a few days - if it was weeks, then ESB is way darker than I thought!

I think it is over about 2 weeks! Tough times.

Yeah. And wearing the same clothes for days. Although that was good news for my mum's budget, Luke's outfit is absolutely guffin' by the time he got to Bespin.
