Walt Disney World Chronicles: Star Tours Origins

Posted on
Disney and Lucasfilm have been working with many different writers preparing an official (and canon) series of stories that bridges the 30-year gap between the events of the movies "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens." A plethora of stories and new characters that appeared in novels, comic books, video games, Disney theme park attractions and animated series that were considered part of an "Expanded Universe" will now be tossed aside in order to create a more coherent history for the franchise. Before the release of the movie "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in December, fans will see the release of almost two dozen books -- from novels to comics to storybooks -- to help bring audiences up to speed and foreshadow the new films.
