Begun, The New Star Wars Canon Has

An inside(r) source tells the tale…



Source: Star Wars Insider Fiction Part of Official Canon

Back in April, it was revealed with some fanfare that Star Wars would be dispensing with much of the previously established Expanded Universe and starting fresh with a streamlined view of what is "canon". This new canonized history would consist of the movies and some things from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated television show, and that's is mainly it. Starting with the new animated series Star Wars Rebels and publishing line (first book titled Star Wars: A New Dawn) in the Fall, and eventually including upcoming Star Wars films, the future of a long time ago will be laid out fresh.

But hold on! It seems like the new future past has already started. It looks like the official Star Wars magazine, Star Wars Insider, has already started publishing a story set in the new canon… And they did it before we even published anything about the new canon! Advertised as being on the stands April 22, issue 149 of Star Wars Insider printed a story titled "Blade Squadron" by David J. Williams and Mark S. WIlliams which is said to be "a part of the new canon". The story focuses on  an elite B-Wing squadron on a suicide mission during the Battle of Endor.

Fiction in Insider note

While that's all well and good, you'd think that they'd make a slightly bigger deal about the first official story set in the new timeline (as Star Wars Rebels and the new novel were cited when this new canon was announced). The description of Star Wars Insider issue 149 merely states that story exists with the blurb " B-Wing Assualt! The first in a spectacular two-part tale set during the Battle of Endor!". No note about the story appears on the cover dress. As hinted, the story concludes in Star Wars Insider #150. If you are excited about the new canon, you'd better get to the stores and grab issue 149 before issue 150 goes on sale on June 10, 2014.

Good luck, and may the Force be with you.
