Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.

This page contains information about a confirmed future group of books.

The content of the page may change dramatically as the product release approaches and more information becomes available.

This is a timeline for books considered canon in the new continuity. It is not for comics or short stories. This timeline is organized chronologically, and in six different categories. Novels and novelizations are separated, as are junior novels and junior novelizations. Young readers books are almost always an adaptation of a previously released piece of content.
