I have never read expanded universe stuff, Clone Wars is it.
I have seen in passing some ghastly stuff(Luke possessed by Palpatine’s ghost?!?) and somewhat ok stuff(invasion from organic borg) but I have never tried to sum it all up. I could read wookipedia but that isn’t fun, I know vaguely some of the pre movies backstory.
What we saw was the straw that broke the camel’s back, with Palpatine dead and the many systems that were thhiiiiiiis close to joining the rebels before all hell breaks loose. Expect power and weakness to spark fighting all over the galaxy.
I assumed when it all settles down Luke would restart a different Jedi order, based on incomplete info.
I assumed Leia would become chancellor or whatever if and when the rebellion takes Coruscant.
I imagine Solo would become something in the military(he is banging the chancellor afterall!)
So what actually happens and how far into the future does it go?
