About Star Wars Books

What's the Star Wars Canon?

The Star Wars Canon includes all movies, novels, comics and video games that belong to the official cycle of history. In contrast to the Star Wars Canon there are also the Star Wars Legends. These include books & comics that don’t belong to the official story, but are a kind of “what if” phenomenon. 

  • Star Wars Canon: this list includes all adapted works from the films and series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, as well as all novels published after April 2014
  • Star Wars Legends:  Following the Lucasfilm acquisition from The Walt Disney Company, all books published before April 26, 2014 were declared out of the barrel and then grouped under the name “Star Wars Legends”.

The calendar in the Star Wars universe is titled BBY and ABY, Before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) and After the Battle of Yavin (ABY). The Battle of Yavin in Episode IV: A New Hope occurred in 0 BBY/ABY.
