Podcast Stardust #19: From Legends to Canon Part 1

by Podcast Stardust

On this fully armed and operational episode, we begin a discussion about those things that originated in Legends and have migrated to Star Wars canon.

Before there was Rebels, The Force Awakens, and Rogue One, there was the Expanded Universe that told decades worth of Star Wars stories after the release of Return of the Jedi. Lucasfilm set the Expanded Universe aside as “Legends” to tell new stories, but as Ahsoka Tano once said, “There is a bit of truth in legends.” On this episode of Podcast Stardust, we are taking a look at those elements of Star Wars that originated in Legends and found a new life in the current Star Wars canon.

On this episode, we discuss:

  • The translation of Thrawn from Heir to the Empire to Rebels,
  • Star Wars ships and cruisers that originated in video games and books,
  • Luke Skywalker’s Force projection from The Last Jedi, and
  • The planet of Malachor.
