Jon Favreau explains the connections of the Star Wars series

The revival of Star Wars started with The Awakening of the Force, as we know, led to the creation of the Canon, a precise and detailed chronology of the events of the franchise that includes not only the films, but also novels, video games and comics. Without forgetting the TV series, which especially with the arrival of Disney + represented a unique way to expand the universe of the galaxy far, far away. The importance of seriality for the saga is increasingly important, so much so that recently Jon Favreau wanted to clarify the links of the Star Wars series.

The links between the Star Wars series explained by Jon Favreau

The serial dimension of the franchise began with The Mandalorian, set after the events of Return of the Jedi, but recently we have seen how it is Emphasis was also placed on Rise of the Empire, the period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, thanks to productions such as Obi-Wan Kenobi or the future Andor. These last two series are far, chronologically speaking, from the fulcrum of the most beloved series, but Jon Favreau, one of the minds of the Star Wars series together with Dave Filoni, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly gave his own interpretation to the connection of the series of Star Wars, with particular attention to the post-Return of the Jedi series, namely those he created with Filoni:

The series we worked on (The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, Skeleton Crew), are set in the period immediately following Return of the Jedi. Between Episode VI and Episode VII there are about thirty years, which are still unknown, at least on the small screen. Which leaves us a lot of room to find new stories using the characters that populate them. In The Mandalorian, we have begun to incorporate these characters, we remind viewers that they already know them. And those unfamiliar with the franchise may get to know them for the first time. In this way we have characters who are connected to each other and who move between the stories, creating a map to explore.

Fans of the franchise explored those three decades through the works of Legends, non-canonical adventures that kept the Star Wars myth alive in comics and novels. The new official chronology born with the Sequel Trilogy has 'erased' those stories, thus allowing profound connoisseurs of the franchise such as Filoni and Favreau to create the real events that shaped the galaxy after the fall of the Empire.
