Star Wars Story Group Timeline

The way the world works:

The Walt Disney Co. bought Lucasfilm in 2013 and with it, George Lucas’s old half-done episode VII outline that fans knew of from a 1983 Mark Hamill interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UGV7WVB-bA) but which Lucas denied the existence of any time the topic came up. The news divided fandom because it was assured that the expanded universe would “break”, just like it did in 2008 with George’s The Clone Wars. Disney took a less destructive approach but a far more fan-dividing step by putting an end to the expanded universe, now referring to it as Star Wars Legends, and setting up a loosely formed board of key Star Wars vets such as the Keeper of the Holocron database Leland Chee and Pablo Hidalgo, who wrote Star Wars guide books such as The Essential Reader’s Companion. This story group would take the Star Wars films and The Clone Wars and build the true canon. Elements of Legends could be reused (such as terms and some characters) however this new canon, which Disney refuses to give a name to, would be planned out much like the Marvel movies. Gone are the days of random books – everything now has a point.
