Here’s a link to the entire list of of new canon books.
Off the bat for real gritty to the political and intrigue to true deadly Star Wars id recommend Bloodline, lost stars, Princess Leia of Alderaan, lords of the sith, Tarkin, dark disciple, perfect weapon, and maybe the legends of Luke Skywalker but that’s a tie in to TLJ so maybe isn’t for everyone. Every book there is loved across fandom.
Avoid the aftermath trilogy. They’re just bad.
Here’s the complete list.

This one is probably better. Includes the comics and it’s chronological and has descriptions of each book

You can't go wrong starting with the books that started it all Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy

Yeah his original trilogy is excellent with some awful stuff in it too (Luuuke.) the new Thrawn trilogy he’s written is only one book old and not as good so far. But it’s only the first one. Second part is out soon.

There may or may not be an announcement soon that I'm directing a Star Wars movie. I interview well it seems...

Though I got the impression Gareth Edwards outlived his welcome after Rogue One & all the (re)shoots, would be surprised to see him back.

Yeah I can’t see it either. Rogue one was all but taken off him. Seems he was being a bit of a smart arse about it. Maybe not though. They went back to JJ after all.

‘An extremely reliable source telling me he spoke to Gareth yesterday and when the guy said to him "You should make more Star Wars films, I love your work," Gareth replied, "I'm working on it. Announcement soon."

He's obviously still on good terms considering he was an extra in The Last Jedi. I personally would like to see another Edwards Star Wars movie as Rogue One is superb.

So Rebels latest episodes last night just brought a form of Spoiler: Time travel into the Star Wars Universe.


So I wonder will we see that affect the future films.

Just to add to that. These two Rebels episodes are exactly why you should watch this show and Clone Wars and have faith in the story group and LFL.
Four years in the making and such brilliant and immersive storytelling and enhancements of the Star Wars saga and such a massive payoff. Tying all the force elements from the films together and enriching it in whole new ways.
You hear Yoda obi wan Vader Rey kylo jyn all in that one episode

No spoiler synopsis we learn that there is no limit to the force and no ceiling as perceived by Luke or Yoda being ‘Masters’. They know only the tiniest fraction



Spoiler: Coulson, it’s not time travel. At all. The force is above and beyond and outside those constraints is all. Filoni and the show creators explaining that much. And it’s the only temple that had that portal. And it gets destroyed. Game over for that.

There was a reason I used spoilers well done for spoiling that spoiler on something not everyone may have seen since it hasn’t aired here.

I’ll give you one euro for every single person here who will actually watch what we’re talking about. Or cares.

That's €1 already. I haven't seen those episodes, yet. Doesn't bother me with something like Rebels, though. If it was a movie or Game of Thrones... That's a different story altogether.

A complete lack of respect you are showing for other fans who might.

Bad form.


So im done engaging with someone who has that little respect for other fans.
