Your Guide to the New Canon of Star Wars Books & ComicsIt was rumored as early as June of last year that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would feature significant remnants of the empire as an opposing force to the "good guys. While some fans were upset that the end of Return of the Jedi - which seemed to depict the death of the Empire - was not so definitive as they once believed, this development opens up plenty of new narrative pathways both in the movies and elsewhere. Considering The Force Awakens takes place approximately 30 years after Jedi , there will doubtlessly be a lot of questions as to what happened in the in-between time. Did the rebels start their own government? And so on. Obviously, Lucasfilm wasn't going to leave fans waiting in the lurch with regard to those questions.
