As we get ever closer to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the excitement in the air is getting ever more intense.  However, not a lot of people are aware that the new film takes place over 30 YEARS after Return of the Jedi.  A lot has happened in that time period, and it will probably be helpful to know this going into the movie.

It’s important to note that every Star Wars book/comic book published before last year has been labelled as ‘Legends,’ meaning that they cannot be relied on as true tales of what really happened. Thankfully a fantastic YouTube channel, The Star Wars Minute, has compiled all of the relevant information that is considered ‘Canon’ into this short video.  We hope you enjoy it!
