The Lucasfilm Story Group has to deal with a lot of moving parts. There are a lot of characters, time periods, and mediums to keep in a tight canon. And no single flowing canon spans the mediums that Star Wars does, comics, books, films, television are all the same world not just based on the same universe like say Marvel comics and the Marvel cinematic universe.
“Watch Monday Night Football on Monday, October 9 – for no reason in particular.”
Rogue One has become one of the most popular films of 2016 and I’ve now seen Rogue One twice in the cinema and both times I enjoyed seeing this new take on a Star Wars story.
Darth Vader is a bucket of rage in this new ongoing series chronicling his early years as a Sith Lord. Charles Soule already has a lot of experience in the Star Wars comic world writing Obi-Wan and Anakin, Poe Dameron, and the Lando mini-series. Giuseppe Camuncoli brings his art style from various Spider Man titles to the Star Wars universe.
There is no doubt that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the most anticipated movie of the year for die hard and casual fans alike. Since the acquisition of the Star Wars brand and everything associated with it, Star Wars was in a way brought back to life with Disney making promises of creating a Star Wars film every year in the indefinite future.
Star Wars is perhaps the most recognized and best loved science fiction film series of all time. How could it not be, it's the most epic and genre influencing franchise ever created. Because of its success and enormous popularity, Star Wars has become one of the most referenced film series in existence.
Star Wars: Battlefront is one of the most successful game series in the Star Wars franchise, and it's been getting more and more popular every year.

Recently, I took the liberty of re-watching the original Star Wars trilogy and the prequels without any preconceived plan to rethink the series. Indeed, I had not seen the films in a long time and a certain nostalgia compelled me to return to that galaxy far, far away. My re-watch, however, led me to a fundamental re-evaluation of the franchise: the Sith are the good guys; the Jedi are the bad guys. By extension, the Galactic Empire is the "good team" and the Galactic Republic/Rebel Alliance is the "bad team."

United in their observance of the Force, the Jedi were the guardians of peace and justice throughout the galaxy. Noble beings from hundreds of worlds, they were. It is no easy task to decide which of these great knights were the most powerful. The Force moves in mysterious ways and to say one Jedi is more powerful than another based on his or her pure strength or abilities would be disingenuous. As Yoda said, “Size matters not...For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is.” Instead, we must look at the Jedi’s actions and potential in relation the challenges of their time. While much of the Expanded Universe is now Legends, it will not stop me from acknowledging some of its greatest Jedi and stories.
