    To be honest, this is one of the few weak spots within Empire. We simply don't know how much time it took for Luke to be trained, we don't know how long the major part of the chase was, nor do we know how long it took to reach Bespin, especially without a hyperdrive. Yeah, Hoth and Bespin are close, but so are we and Alpha Centauri, and that's four light years away!

    I love the leeway on the time though. If we get out of some set time frame, it does make for a good story to think Luke was training for weeks. And then new adaptations (that are even canon) can add things as they go along, like for instance, the elephoth story in So You Want To Be A Jedi? (the new junior adaptation of ESB). It made something fresh in a story we know already, and just the retelling in a different light makes for fun reading.

    Before Disney had purchased Lucasfilm, it had stated that Luke's training on Dagobah and the Falcon's journey to Bespin (with a broken hyper drive) at least two to three months. The problem is that I do not know if this is actually true.

    It's likely not far off. The basic, interfilm timeline has remained the same:
    TPM -(10 yrs)- AOTC -(3 yrs)- ROTS -(19 yrs)- ANH -(3 yrs)- ESB -(1 yr)- ROTJ
    The rough time frame within each film probably is the same as what it was established to be in the past.

    Lol strip Sabacc? That would explain how Leia got so good playing as mentioned in "Bloodline" lol. :cool:

    That is correct! Traveling at sublight speed would take long even at a short distance.

    So that's why he got so annoyed at being interrupted by C3P0. He'd spent weeks grooming her for that moment ;).

    Blame dad Anakin who was so strong in the Force that he foresaw that and created Threepio with a "interrupting potential suitors" chip for his daughter lol.

    The only explanation they came up with during the West End Game’s books was a back-up hyperdrive for the falcon that took 20 time longer then it’s the primal one (0.5 Lightspeed). So let’s say Anoat to Bespin with a class 1.0 hyperdrive would take about 2 days, that then 20 days just with the backup system.

    Just with sublight drives, it would have taken them years to cover the distance.

    But damn, Hoth is hard to find on those old charts. The same system mentioned the travel distance between Dagobah to Bespin being 1 day and 3 hours.

    AstrogationGazetteer.jpg

    Here’s another theory, the travel piggybacked from Hoth to Anoat, then onwards to Bespin (see galaxy guide 3):

    "The Falcon was able to reach the Hoth asteroid belt under its own power. (The Illustrated Star Wars Universe states that the asteroid belt is in Hoth, not Anoat as Movie Trilogy Sourcebook says.) When it exited the belt, pursued by the Star Destroyer Avenger, Solo did his daring maneuver that mounted the Falcon on the Avenger’s conning tower. The Avenger then took a brief jump through hyperspace to rendezvous with the rest of the fleet in the Anoat system. When the fleet broke up in the Anoat system, the Falcon detached, and proceeded, under its own sub-light power, to Bespin. Along the way to Bespin, Solo risked using the Falcon’s aged and unreliable hyperdrive backup for short “hyperspace skips” to cut down on the time."

    Or just read Pablo on this: https://moon-swing-chronicles.obsidianportal.com/wikis/errata-galaxy-guide-3

    How long did the "Illustrated Star Wars Universe" say it took the Falcon to reach Bespin? Because, that is more or less how long Luke's Jedi training on Bespin lasted.

    I go by Luke training for a few weeks but less than 3mo. It seems to fit the story & character for him to get in depth training but not like a regular Jedi.

    I'm going to go with no less than a week, no longer than a month or so. Enough time that fuel and rations would be a concern, prompting them to want to find somewhere to repair quickly, but not long enough that there were mentions in the script of food or fuel shortages.

    well in ROTJ he went back to finish his training so he must have been on dagobah for the first time for a very long time to "finish" his training .

    Luke was probably on Dagobah with Yoda for at least a few weeks. After the events of "TESB", he stayed away for at least a year and "completed" his training via a handbook that he had found inside Obi-Wan's Tattooine's hut. After rescuing Han, Luke finally returned to Dagobah, but Yoda was dying by then.

    Considering that Luke had began his training on Dagobah around the same time that the Falcon managed to evade the Empire in the Hoth system and had ended it a day or two after the Falcon's arrival on Bespin, I would say that the amount of time for Luke's training and the Falcon's journey to Bespin were roughly the same, give or take a day or two.

    Personally, I feel that the handling of this time frame regarding Luke's training and the journey to Bespin is one of the weak spots of "The Empire Strikes Back".
