From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The chronology of the Star Wars fictional universe is subject to change as George Lucas has revised his films and deemed the revisions to be definitive. Lucasfilm manages the official continuity carefully. Their licensing arm, Lucas Licensing, maintains a Holocron database with four levels of official canon. Fan writers such as Nathan Butler augment this and in Butler's work, Star Wars Timeline Gold, he identifies 9 levels of officiality.[1]

The chronology is maintained according to narrated time rather than real-world time and publishing chronology. For this purpose, a calendar based upon the Battle of Yavin in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is used. In this dating system, BBY stands for Before the Battle of Yavin,[2] and ABY stands for After the Battle of Yavin,[3] so 50 BBY comes before 5 ABY, as with BC/AD in the Gregorian calendar. The defeat of the Empire at the Battle of Endor (four years after Yavin) has been used as an alternate starting year, but has been superseded by the current system. When Bantam Spectra held the license for Star Wars novels, they described their books as after Endor, but Del Rey, the current license-holder, exclusively uses ABY.

A galactic year is based on the length of a year on Coruscant which is 368 standard days, each being the length of a day on Coruscant. The days are divided into 24 hours of 60 minutes each, while the year is composed of 10 months plus additional festivals and holidays.[citation needed]


Time measurement in the Star Wars galaxy

In the official continuity, time is derived from the planet Coruscant:

  • 1 Coruscant year = 10 months (350 days) + 3 festival weeks (15 days) + 3 holidays (3 days) = 368 days
  • 1 Coruscant month = 7 weeks = 35 days
  • 1 Coruscant week = 5 days
  • 1 Coruscant day = 24 hours
  • 1 Coruscant hour = 60 minutes[citation needed]
