Piero Star Wars Bibliography

Star Wars is an American epicspace operamedia franchise, centered on a film series created by George Lucas that includes Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983). The series depicts the adventures of various characters "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away". A large number of derivative Star Wars works have been produced in conjunction with, between, and after the original trilogy of films, and later installments. This body of work was collectively known as the Star Wars expanded universe for decades.

In October 2012, The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.06 billion.[1][2][3] In April 2014, Lucasfilm rebranded the Expanded Universe material as Star Wars Legends and declared it non-canon to the franchise. The company's focus would be shifted towards a restructured Star Wars canon based on new material.[4][5][6] The first new canon adult novel was Star Wars: A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller, published in September 2014.[7]

This is a list of original novels, novel adaptations, original junior novels, junior novel adaptations, young readers, and short stories in the Star Wars franchise. This list does not include journals, graphic novels or comic books, which can be found in the list of Star Wars comic books.

Star Wars (2014–present)[edit]

Since 2014, the official Star Wars canon includes all the movie episodes, The Clone Wars film and the television shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, as well as any books, comics, and video games published after April 2014.

Star Wars Legends works were previously organized around an in-universe timeline based on the Battle of Yavin from the original 1977 Star Wars, referencing years Before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) or After the Battle of Yavin (ABY).
