spoilers for seasons 6 and 7 of The Clone Wars

In season 6 of TCW, Fives tries to uncover the truth about the clones' inhibitor chips, ultimately dying in Rex's arms as he's killed. In season 7, during the events of Order 66, Ahsoka seeks out the report Rex made about Fives' findings to learn about the chips.

This could have been mentioned somewhere and I missed it, but how much time takes place between these events? Wookieepedia says that Fives died in 19 BBY. This is the exact year that season 7 (and Revenge of the Sith) take place - so did Fives die only months before? Do we have a more exact number?

The same year.

Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places both the final episode of season 5, The Wrong Jedi, and the unfinished but canon Utapau arc in 19 BBY. According to an official series chronological order guide, all of season six takes place between that season five episode and the Utapau arc. That means that season six also takes place in 19BBY.

Sequence Episode Title
108 520 The Wrong Jedi
109 601 The Unknown
110 602 Conspiracy
111 603 Fugitive
112 604 Orders
113 605 An Old Friend
114 606 The Rise of Clovis
115 607 Crisis at the Heart
116 608 The Disappeared
117 609 The Disappeared: Pt. II
118 610 The Lost One
119 611 Voices
120 612 Destiny
121 613 Sacrifice
Crystal Crisis On Utapau Story Reels
122 A Death on Utapau
123 In Search of the Crystal
124 Crystal Crisis
125 The Big Bang

The atlas also places Revenge of the Sith in 19BBY.

I'm sorry the answer isn't super specific, but it would appear to be all that we have at the moment. More speculatively, Ahsoka's arc with the Martez sisters seems to occur pretty shortly after her leaving the Jedi Order. I would then guess that the gap between season six and the film is a few months at most.


A few months, less than a year is currently the only answer we have

I don't think it's been specified exactly in canon

  • While this is correct, it would be a better answer if you could at least reference a more canonical source than Wookieepedia to establish the timeline.
