Resistance is set “about six months” before The Force Awakens

Fan Jose Ruiz noted an interesting bit of information in the code for the Resistance page on It pegs the show’s setting as “about six months before The Force Awakens.”

Set about six months before The Force Awakens, Star Wars Resistance tells the story of Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order.

The timing of the series isn’t mentioned in what was sent out Friday, but if it’s in the page’s meta description – which is there for search engine purposes, i.e. “When is Star Wars Resistance set?” – I doubt it was ever meant to be a secret.

Here’s Ruiz’s tweet:
