Added DiffLines:

** Crucible is both the [[Literature/StarWarsCrucible the final chronological book in the Legends continuity]] or one of the very first works in it, being an issue title for MarvelStarWars.
** ''Rebel Strike'' is either the third title in the Rogue Squadron series or a Star Wars Rebels-based browser game.
** And then there's ''The Last Jedi''... It's the eighth movie in the saga, the final book of the Coruscant Nights series, or an issue of Marvel Star Wars. Mark Hamill poked fun at all of these, saying they had spoilers for the movie.

* ChannelHop: The first six films were originally distributed by 20th Century Fox, but when Disney bought Lucasfilm outright in 2012, they got control of all of them except ANewHope, as the later films were financed by Lucas himself and merely distributed by Fox. Thus, Disney owns the digital video and television rights to every installment except the original film, which was thought to remain with Fox in perpetuity, while the remaining rights to ''I-III'', ''V'', and ''VI'' would revert to Disney in 2020. When Disney decided to buy Fox six years later, they finally got control of the film and the other rights to the films.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Creator/CarrieFisher's sudden death before ''Episode IX'' even began filming sent the crew into complete panic, as she was planned to have a larger role in it than either of the two preceding films, and had clearly been set up to have her own dramatic climax with [[spoiler:her son being the new BigBad.]] They quickly started discussions on their options, including having Leia be killed between films, simply kept offscreen, or using the same CGI double process that had been used with Creator/PeterCushing ([[spoiler:and briefly Fisher herself]]) in ''Rogue One''. Leia's fate in the sequel trilogy remains to be seen.
