As you may know, Disney recently announced that Episode VII won't follow the stories of past Star Wars books. This means that almost all the novels published up to now are being reclassified as "Legends", and will be outside of the new Star Wars continuity by default. But the news for Star Wars readers isn't all bad! The publication of Star Wars novels will continue this fall, and books that come out from now on will be equal to the films in the continuity. That means, for the first time ever, future movies won't be allowed to contradict the new generation of books!

I know what you're thinking: what about the Star Wars book timeline? It's not going away - in fact, it's just gotten a lot better! On the new and improved Star Wars book list you can easily compare the Legends timeline and the timeline of future "canon" books side-by-side. Check it out! I've even added Star Wars: Episode VII to the timeline already for your reference!

Information on upcoming Star Wars novels has become scarce during this period of transition to the era of Disney and the new films. However, I've made some adjustments to the Star Wars novel timeline to bring it fully up to date. Honor Among Thieves, the upcoming classic era Han Solo novel, now has its final cover art.

By now, you've probably heard the big news: Lucasfilm is being bought by Disney, and there will be more Star Wars movies! It's still unknown how the upcoming sequel movies will affect the books timeline - they could either use material from the books or write over them completely. Only time will tell. If you want to discuss the future of Star Wars with other fans, you're welcome to join us at the Port Haven message boards. I've also updated Yoda's Datapad's Star Wars FAQ to reflect what we know now.
