*Anakin is 20 in Episode II, but he was 9 in Episode I, which took place ten years earlier. The explanation for this is that he turned ten right after Episode I, and the two movies are actually about ten years and one month apart.

**Older sources say that C-3PO was built 112 years before the Battle of Yavin, but this is apparently disproven in Episode I. However, it is still true from a certain point of view; Anakin built C-3PO largely from parts of a trashed protocol droid manufactured 80 years before.

†Older sources put Luke and Leia at either 18 or 20 years old at the time of Episode IV, but we now know that they are born in Episode III, which takes places 19 years before.
