The Holocron continuity database is the database used internally by Lucas Licensing to keep track of all of the fictional elements created for the Star Wars universe, and contains elements from nearly every officially sanctioned Star Wars source. It is maintained by Leland Chee on FileMaker Pro 7 software, and was created in early 2000, starting from a core of material imported into the database from the Behind the Magic and Star Wars: Episode I Insider's Guide CD-ROMs, but it has since grown substantially as new information has been added. As of May 16, 2013, it contained 61,128 entries.[1]

At present, there are no plans to release any portion of the Holocron to the public. One reason cited is:

"In addition to being an archive for information that has already been published, the Holocron is a tool to track everything that is currently in development. Information is entered at the earliest stages, so there is information about products that won't be released until years later. It is also used to store unpublished reference information."

A rare glimpse at the Holocron was seen at the Celebration IV "30 Years of Star Wars Publishing and Continuity" panel.[2]
