A source close to the filming of the movie said there is no "drop-off" between the series finale and the start of the movie.
The trailer for the much-awaited and talked to death movie for the beloved series Breaking Bad is here, finally. “Fugitive Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) runs from his captors, the law and his past. Written and directed by “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan,” the description on the since pulled page on Netflix read.
The screenshot of the place holder page on Netflix came hours after Bob Odenkirksaid, “I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They've done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
We didn’t take Bob’s words seriously, but then the image was something coming from Reddit. Finally, Netflix released the trailer for the movie, which showed the DEA interrogating 'Skinny Pete' and asking him about the whereabouts of Jesse Pinkman.

In the trailer, Pete says, “I seen the little cage of his; they kept him in…I heard about what they did to him to make sure he kept cooking. So, sorry! I don’t know what to tell you. No way I’m helping you people put Jesse Pinkman back inside a cage.” This was something we long waited and now since the trailer is out we feel comfortable sharing a quote from a source who we believe is worked on the movie. She is the same person who warned us about the Mezcal photos, and she told us about the movie coming out, but we wanted to be sure the film was real before we published the quote.
The source said, “The last scene of the Breaking Bad TV series [Walter’s Death] was something the show ended on…and this, it’s like the very next frame from Walter’s Death. There is no drop-off. You saw Jesse's escape and the very next scene you will see in the movie is the manhunt for Jesse begins."

This quote just seemed so vague to us without much context then, but now after seeing the trailer, we can see the movie not doing any kind of time jump and just continuing the story from the point of the finale. We contacted our source again after the release of the trailer and asked if Walter will be making any kind of appearance, and her answer was “NO.”
During the Breaking Bad finale, Walter returns to Albuquerque and sets his family up with the money he’s got left. Walter meets his wife, and we knew he was going to do something, and the events will eventually lead to his death. During the final moments of the series, we see Walter trying to fight Jesse, but it was all a ruse to get him on the floor. Walter uses the jerry-rigged gun in the trunk of his car to kill all of uncle Jack’s men and kills Jack himself.
Watch: Walter comes to the rescue of Jesse
In the final moments of the show, we see Jesse get in an El Camino car and get out of the compound while police are coming to the scene of the crime. The jubilation, the happiness he felt during the final moment, was apparent as he was crying, laughing and banging the dashboard all at the same time and made his escape. With Walter wounded and almost dead lying in the lab’s floor and looking up into the distance the final episode ended if the source is to be believed then Vince Gilligan is continuing the story from the exact moment.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is coming to Netflix on 11 October 2019.
