** Creator/{{Disney}}'s sequel trilogy has necessitated the [[http://www.starwars.com/news/the-legendary-star-wars-expanded-universe-turns-a-new-page announcement]] that the old Expanded Universe is now an AlternateContinuity known as ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'', and all new stories are vetted (more extensively than before) to fit into the continuity established by the six films and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''.

** Creator/{{Disney}}'s sequel trilogy has necessitated the [[http://www.starwars.com/news/the-legendary-star-wars-expanded-universe-turns-a-new-page announcement]] that the old Expanded Universe is now an AlternateContinuity known as ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'', and all new stories are vetted (more extensively than before) to fit into the continuity established by the six films and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. The reason for the more careful vetting is that under Disney's current rules, new Expanded Universe stories are ''just as canon as the movies''.

** ''{{Film/Labyrinth}}'' had a OELManga sequel from {{Creator/Tokyopop}}, the four-volume ''Manga/ReturnToLabyrinth'', over 2006-10. Creator/ArchaiaEntertainment is working on a prequel presenting the origin story of fan-favorite [[DavidBowie Jareth the Goblin King]]; while quality concerns are keeping that in DevelopmentHell for now, this hasn't stopped one-shot stories from appearing in the company's Free Comic Book Day compilations ("Hoggle and the Worm" in 2012, and a Sir Didymus story in 2013). Interestingly, the planned prequel won't be compatible with ''Return to Labyrinth''.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s Expanded Universe consists of multiple novels, comics, guidebooks, online exclusives, commercials, live-action features and films, and [[AlternateRealityGame Alternate Reality Games]], along with an [[Anime/HaloLegends anime series]]. All of it, whether created directly by staff from Bungie or 343i (the studios behind the games), or by third parties working under their direct control, is not only completely canonical, but is closely integrated with the games. For example, much of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' will only be understood by people who read the books; this disclaimer even applies to its ''official website''.
