Disney Changes Star Wars Timeline To Center On The New Sequel Trilogy
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary changes the traditional dating system which originally focused on A New Hope as its starting point (BBY – Before the Battle of Yavin/ABY – After the Battle of Yavin).
The new system is now oriented around Disney’s sequel trilogy. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is referred to as the “Starkiller Incident,” meaning the calendar divides around BSI (Before Starkiller Incident) and ASI (After Starkiller Incident).
How do you guys feel about the new change?
