The nature of Star Wars means that you don’t just have the movie to look at for clues and hints to aid your obsessive theorising. On 25 April 2014, the decree of the great rodent overlord (aka the Walt Disney Company) effectively wiped out over two decades of novels, games and comics, re-branding the old EU as ‘Legends’ and announcing that only books published past that date would be considered part of the new canon.

While this was obviously a blow to fans of the old EU, it means that there are now exciting possibilities for books, comics and games to interface with the new mythology established by the sequel trilogy.

In the sub-sections in this part of the site, I provide a guide to some of the books in the new canon that are most likely to reveal clues that will aid theory building  for the sequel trilogy.
