A massive universe with hundreds of stories spread out across thousands of years, this Star Wars Legends timeline attempts to share it all in chronological order.

What’s on the Star Wars Legends Timeline?

This is the continuity of Star Wars Legends timeline, or in other words, the alternate universe of Star Wars material that takes place separate from the film continuity or official canon. All of the previously named expanded universe, together in one timeline. Note: None of this is official Star Wars canon. The films, Clone Wars television show, Rebels, and other canonical material is included on the official canon page.

This timeline includes:

  • Older Star Wars Television: Everything from the Ewok Adventures, to the Genndy Tartakovsky Clone Wars series. Oh and that Holiday Special thing…
  • Legends novels: The bulk of all Star Wars novels so far.
  • Legends comics: Most of these were published by Dark Horse Comics prior to Disney acquiring Lucasfilm. There are a lot of them, and only comics that have been re-released with the Legends banner on them have a “Buy” link.
  • Young Reader Novels: Such as Young Jedi Knights or Jedi Apprentice, there are several series of books for younger readers.
  • Video Games: Popular favorites like Knights of the Old Republic or Rogue Squadron are also part of the Legends timeline.

Though Star Wars Legends is not currently part of the active canon, it’s still largely cohesive and offers a huge story set in the Star Wars universe. Since it’s not canon, you could think of it as an alternate universe. As always, if you have questions or comments about this timeline, we recommend you visit our contact page.

  1. You’re right about the movies, but if you’re talking about the Clone Wars TV show, then no, it doesn’t fit in. When George Lucas did the show he completely ignored everything that already existed in the expanded universe, and as such it overwrites, and therefore doesn’t fit in, with the Legends timeline.

    For instance, in Legends Anakin never had an apprentice (CW overwrites that with Ahsoka), Labyrinth of Evil was the direct prequel to Revenge of the Sith (CW lost episodes shows that that would have been overwritten too, and has been explored in the Ahsoka novel), and there’s all the books and comics that detailed the events of the Clone Wars that were completely overwritten by CW, things like the Republic Commando novels, the Clone Wars novels (Jedi Trial, Shatterpoint etc), and most importantly of all the events if the Clone Wars graphic novels.

    It’s not the first time George did it either, and while people can say Disney rebooted the canon, the fact is George has been ignoring the expanded universe since he released The Phantom Menace, and that’s when the reboot actually started.

  2. Hi excellent stuff but haven’t you missed out Knights of the Old Republic: Reunion 1&2? Shouldn’t they be somewhere between Flashpoint 3 and Days of Fear 1?

    Keep up the great work 🙂

  3. hey i know that the films aren’t considered legends, but since all the legends comics and novels are built around the films i’d just like to know where the films would go in the timeline if they were legends to make a better experience for legends audience
