Notes and references
- According to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, the Jedi Temple of Luke Skywalker was destroyed six years before the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Therefore, since the events of The Rise of Kylo Ren 2 are set immediately after the temple's destruction, it can be deduced that the story takes place in 28 ABY.
