Oh, Never Mind

Leland Chee walked back/clarified his mystery post from a few days ago (capped by Star Wars The Prequel Trilogy):

Apparently the post from the other day was to straighten out how many years take place in between films and stuff.

    Ah well. Still useful to have an official timeline, I suppose, even if it was nothing we didn’t already have. And we have a definite time for when Rebels starts.

    Guess that means Ep VII is sixty-six years after the Battle of Naboo. Wow. Lot of generations gone.

    Love Paul’s response on FB before the clarification: “Sigh. Timelines in SW. That’s probably where the problems started. Does no one remember it all took place a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away? Pure magic. Illo tempore. A timeless eternity. Classical mythology never needed no stinkin’ timeline.”

    Oh well, it was fun to entertain the possibility for a few days…
    Back to BBY I suppose.

    It would make sense, once you think about it, to have Ep IV be the starting point because that’s how it all began and that’s why we’re still here discussing Star Wars.

    Hm. I for one always kinda thought BBY was just a stupid, fanboyish thing. It made sense when all you had was the OT, but beyond that it’s just kinda useless.

    Well, never change a running system, ehm, timeline. That is probably the reason that the Battle of Yavin is kept as “Hour Zero”. Personally, I think the discovery of the Chosen One as “Hour Zero” would have been worthy of the mythological aspects of SW (do you agree, Paul F. McDonald?)
