Hello, hello! Welcome back, Rebescum fans! This week on the site, weíre headed into the jungle planet of Felucia. Itís a tragic site for the Star Wars universe, as it is the planet where the beloved fan-favorite Jedi Master Aayla Secura meets her end during Order 66. Felucia has a much more important role in the Star Wars galaxy than you may have realized; it played a major role in The Clone Wars, the Old Republic era, and many storylines in the Expanded Universe. Stay tuned throughout the week for more articles, insights, videos, and information about the best merchandising youíll want to add to your collection.

Felucia got a larger role in the Expanded Universe, but not every planned project within the Star Wars universe saw the light of day. For one reason or another, some Star Wars storylines were planned, but then never completed. Check out our guide to some canceled Star Wars books that nearly made it into canon.

The Heart of the Jedi

Author Kenneth C. Flint had begun developing a novel in the late 1990s that took place immediately after the destruction of the second Death Star. Due to creative disagreements with Lucasfilm, Flintís novel was pulled from release.

Legacy of Doom
Author Margaret Weis planned to write a follow up to The Heart of the Jedi, but went through similar creative hardships. She removed herself from the project due to a difference of opinion of the novelís tone and characterization.

Alien Exodus
One of the most intriguing canceled novels, Alien Exodus would have explored the origins of the human species within the Star Wars universe. The ambitious novel would have connected Star Wars to Earth, and canonized Lucasí other two films, THX-1138 and American Graffiti.

Blood Oath
Elaine Cunningham began writing this romantic novel that would have explored Jaina Soloís adventures and soul searching after the events of the Legacy of the Force series. Certain elements of the story, including Jainaís relationship with Jagged Fel, were incorporated into the Fate of the Jedi series.

The Sword of the Jedi
Following the purchase of Lucasfilm by Disney, many novels were canceled that would have expanded the post-Return of the Jedi timeline. The Sword of the Jedi trilogy was intended to take place after Fate of the Jedi, picking up with Ben Skywalker and Allana Solo after Lukeís return to Coruscant.
