A Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline and Guide to Hardback Books and Novels from The Old Republic Era, Rise of the Empire Era, Rebellion Era, New Republic Era, The New Jedi Order Era and Legacy Era.

On April 25, 2015, Lucasfilm announced that moving forward all Expanded Universe works would be removed from Star Wars canon and now fall under the Star Wars Legends label. From that point on, all new works would be official canon. This page collects only hardback novels falling under the new Star Wars Canon since the April 25th announcement. This reboot cleaned up the entire timeline, with (at the time of the announcement) only the 6 movies and The Clone Wars cartoon (film and television series) now existing as official canon.

The first official canon novel to be released was Star Wars: A New Dawn, released September 2, 2014. This rebuilt universe will be closely monitored by the official Star Wars Storygroup.

This collection represents hardback novels since that launch. The older Legends timeline can be found on our Legends Timeline Hardback Guide.
