When Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas himself, they acquired the rights to all aspects of the Star Wars franchise, not just the films. Another company within the Disney conglomerate, Marvel Comics, has been publishing the official Star Wars comics since 2015, and that’s meant a lot of exciting additions to the new Star Wars comics canon.
The Disney buyout meant the end of the famed Star Wars Extended Universe, or EU, but also the birth of a brand new Extended Universe, one that’s finally all under the creative control of one corporate entity. That means when something happens in a Marvel Star Wars comic, it “counts” as far as continuity is concerned, and there have been franchise-shaking moments added to the mythos already.
