Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi’s Timeline, Explained

Each Tales of the Jedi installment takes place at a different point on the Star Wars timeline, which makes sense, given it’s an anthology series. None of the show’s episodes explicitly state their respective in-universe dates, however. What’s more, Episode 6, “Resolve,” includes an unspecified time jump that could amount to as many as 13 years! So, what we’re saying here is that dating Tales of the Jedi‘s six entries is a bit of a challenge. For the most part, the best we can do is narrow it down to a specific date range. That said, we can confidently state the exact date of two episodes.
