"And so my king died, and my brothers died, barely a year ago. Long I pondered my king's cryptic talk of victory. Time has proven him wise, for from free Greek to free Greek, the word was spread that bold Leonidas and his three hundred, so far from home, laid down their lives. Not just for Sparta, but for all Greece and the promise this country holds."
So says Dilios in the final segment of 300. Why was this line important? Well, it points out that a year went by since the death of Leonidas. This year is mucho importanto, as this single piece of time will be covered in the sequel to 300.
300 Sequel... Prequel
The good people at IESB caught up with Zack Snyder and got the director to give some new details on the upcoming sequel/prequel for 300. It turns out that Snyder has no say on the sequel's story, Frank Miller has full creative control, but does know when it takes place.
Snyder also said it will take place between the Battle of Thermopylae and the Battle of Plataea, the battle that narrator Dilios is at while re-telling the story of King Leonidas and the mighty Spartans to a new group of warriors at the end of 300.
In short: 300 was action-packed and it covered a few days. Imagine covering an entire year.
