If you are a die-hard fan of the Star Wars franchise, you might have heard about the term “Star Wars Legends.” For those who don’t know, it’s a term used for the Expanded Universe (EU) of Star Wars that includes books, comics, games, and other media created outside of the official canon.
The EU has been an essential part of the Star Wars experience for many fans who were looking to explore more stories set in the galaxy far, far away. However, with the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney in 2012, the EU was rebranded as “Star Wars Legends,” and all EU stories were declared non-canon.
So, the question is – Is there a Star Wars Legends movie? The answer is both yes and no.
On one hand, there is no official Star Wars Legends movie that adapts any of the EU stories. However, some elements from the Legends have been incorporated into the new canon through movies like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Solo: A Star Wars Story. These movies have featured characters and concepts from Legends stories without directly adapting them.
For example, Rogue One featured characters like Saw Gerrera from The Clone Wars animated series and Grand Admiral Thrawn from Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy. Similarly, Solo introduced us to Crimson Dawn crime syndicate inspired by Black Sun organization from Legends.
Moreover, some rumors suggest that Lucasfilm might be considering making a movie based on one of the popular Legends storylines. The rumored storyline is “The Old Republic” era set thousands of years before the events of the Skywalker Saga. However, these rumors are not confirmed yet.
In conclusion, there is no official Star Wars Legends movie that directly adapts any EU story. Still, some elements from these stories have been used in new canon movies like Rogue One and Solo. As for a possible future film adaptation of Legends content – only time will tell if this happens or not.
