The fans of Star Wars are unquestionably getting their bit. As it is, we have two more portions of the spin-off trilogy in transit, no less than three “anthology” movies planned, a hit TV show (with another on the pipeline), another game, and a consistent stream of new comics and books for grown-up and teenagers.
Tragically, when Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012 and chose to recount new stories, they de-canonized everything with the exception of the Episodes I-VI movies and the hit Clone Wars TV show. This implied fan-most loved characters like Grand Admiral Thrawn and Kyle Katarn, and many others in Star Wars Expanded Universe, were wiped away. In any case, Disney heard these fan outbursts and has started to bring those characters once more into canon through a couple of new channels, similar to Thrawn’s re-emergence on Rebels and a forthcoming novel which is based on Ahsoka Tano.
Despite the fact that the old stories are just “Legends,” some of them are as awesome to read. Regardless of whether they are canon or only legends, here are 15 Star Wars stories you must read!
