This may have been an exaggeration, but the films also show quick travel to many points throughout, such as Rey and Chewie heading to Ahch-to at the end of The Force Awakens. Of course, this could just be moving the plot along quicker.


I was rewatching TESB just the other day and thought about this. It's more circumstantial evidence that hyperdrive technology really can get you from one side of the galaxy to the other in less than a day. It makes sense in-universe, though. Just consider IRL how we can get from one side of the world to the other today in less than a day. Only a century ago, that would have been considered fantastical.
