just how long is the time scale for Revenge of the sith?
i was watching it again yesterday and it occurs to be that months
Padme isnt 8 months gone at the beginning of the film but gives birth to healthy looking babies.
anakin talks about "lately i get the feeling they are hiding things from me" or similar talking about the council after his appointment to it.
i cant find much online except people saying its 9 days?
The nine days timeline comes from Issue 84 of Star Wars Insider, although I think it might just be one author's guesswork. Padme is apparently very pregnant but hiding her belly; Anakin hasn't seen it before because he's been on the front lines of the Outer Rim Sieges for months. The "lately i get the feeling they are hiding things from me" line seems to be in general, not just after his appointment to the council. Menkooroo (talk) 08:37, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
I think I remember seeing somewhere, I think it was the ROTS visual dictionary, that Anakin hadn't seen Padme or been on Coruscant for six months, so she would have had to be pregnant that whole time. Is that any help? Commander Code-8To say hi, press 42 21:15, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
While on the topic, and so as to not to introduce a near-identical thread, how long is Empire Strikes Back? Luke mentions alot of things he's learned from Yoda, as well as experiences, in various EU sources that weren't depicted in the film. He must've trained on Dagobah for considerable time, since once he leaves he won't return again until Return of the Jedi.--Ernesto1035 (talk) 15:47, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
There are definitive dates for the start and end of each movie in The Essential Atlas, I believe. I don't have a copy around to check at the moment, though. NaruHinaTalk 17:04, October 22, 2012 (UTC)
The 19 BBY article puts the Battle of Coruscant concluding on 16:5:20 and the duel in the Senate on 16:5:23; so three days. But keep in mind that the citation for those two entries is simply 'Episode III', so it's quite possible it's wrong.
Contrarily, Order 66: A Republic Commando Novel places the Battle of Coruscant as ending 1085 days after the Battle of Geonosis and Order 66 coming down on 1089 days ABG—so four days.
I'm not sure where the 9 days estimate comes from, honestly. But the timing of the events of Episode III are a little fuzzy. Same with ESB, really. — DigiFluid(Whine here) 18:44, October 22, 2012 (UTC)
I think it would take a bit longer than a few days for Republic spies to find out that Grievous was hiding on Utapau.Commander Code-8To say hi, press 42 06:59, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
Actually Sidious probably was getting bored of the war so he decided to execute Grievous anyway, so maybe the 9 days thing could be accurate. Commander Code-8To say hi, press 42 06:59, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
