Those of us who spent years wearing out our Star Wars VHS tapes have grown to associate the 20th Century Fox logo fanfare with the phrase “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.” Even when we heard that iconic music blast before another movie, we half-expected that shimmering Lucasfilm logo to appear, followed by that familiar blue text and Star Wars title. But Disney owns Star Wars now and the Fox music will no longer be heard before each movie. In addition to being a real punch right in the nostalgia, this means that Disney has created new music to accompany the Lucasfilm logo and ... it’s weird.

With 20 new Star Wars books arriving later this year as part of Lucasfilm’s “Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens” publishing initiative, the new expanded universe is about to get a little complicated.
