Updated! Canon Timeline of Star Wars Novels, Comics, & Games

Canon Media

With the massive amount of canon media that has hit the Star Wars universe since 2014, we thought it would be expedient to provide our readers with a general timeline of the books, comics, and video games in relation to the films and TV series.  If you are still trying to wrap your head around the new Star Wars canon or are looking for a good place to jump in, read on to see where each story falls in the timeline of the larger story. 


Note: This list is tailored to provide adult fans a simple streamlined timeline of the main books, comics, and video games that Star Wars has to offer. Because of this, the mobile games, short stories, young reader books, children’s comics, and some of the junior novels have been omitted.
