The Star Wars universe is a living thing. For almost 30 years, it has continued to grow and evolve, with new chapters constantly being added by writers, artists, game designers and other talented creators. While the six films form the most visible and important part of the Star Wars universe, the story is much bigger than six movies could ever contain.
Star Wars: The New Essential Chronology attempts to compile all the many stories into one enthralling tale. It is an epic that spans over 25,000 years of continuity, from the founding of the Republic to the formation of the Galactic Alliance. The newly updated book, written by Daniel Wallace (with Kevin J. Anderson), provides an overarching view of the many stories set in the Star Wars universe, finally fills in the gaps of the prequel trilogy and The New Jedi Order, and connects the many eras and tales with newly revealed information. It is both the perfect primer for someone new to the expanded universe, and a valuable resource to even the most experienced chronicler of Star Wars lore.
