Timeline of Legends Novels

“Legends” is the umbrella term used to describe the interconnecting saga of Games, Movies, Comics and Books that formed the Star Wars Expanded Universe. The “Star Wars EU” as it was known, told the ever-expanding story of Star Wars

This is a timeline for novels, young adult books, and eBooks in the Expanded Universe/Legends continuity prior to the 2014 Disney reboot. This list does not reflect Comic storylines

As we’re dealing with stories set centuries before and after the events of Episodes I to VI it’s important to understand how time is measured in the Star Wars universe. 

The Star Wars saga began with ‘A New Hope’, so time is oriented around that film and in particular the climactic final Battle of Yavin. 

Events that transpired prior to Battle of Yavin are categorized as “BBY” or “Before the Battle of Yavin” whereas events from the Battle onward are categorized as “ABY” or “After the Battle of Yavin”
