Star Wars has for decades expanded its universe across thousands of TV episodes, books, comics, games, and other licensed narrative forms. George Lucas’s sale of his company Lucasfilm to Disney in 2013, however, brought about a crisis of identity for Star Wars and its “Expanded Universe.” This has been particularly prolific in relation to home media releases and re-releases. In this chapter I will analyze how Lucasfilm has altered the structure of the Star Wars transmedia continuity from a multi-tiered hierarchical creator-centric canon to a new, broadly collaborative, non-hierarchical canonical system. This has particularly been evidenced in the paratextual discourse that surrounds the DVDs and Blu-rays for Episodes I–VI.
