Star Wars: Canon Adaptations

Timeline (ABY/BBY) & Release Dates

Short URL: SWDatapad.com/adaptations

Young adult adaptations of movies and TV episodes are listed here on two tables:
First are the junior novelizations and retellings of the movies. For the adult novelizations of movies, check out the Novels page.

Second is for Rebels episodes, shorts, and their TV movies. For young adult books featuring Rebels characters that are not directly adapted from the show, check the YA Books page.

In addition to the release date you can sort by ABY/BBY year, title, author, and which series or episodes the book is based on. Related notes have been made and you can use the search box to narrow results in real time.

The “Buy Now” and “Pre-Order” buttons link to the book’s Amazon page for which we get a small percentage. It’s a great way to help support the site without paying anything extra.
