Dawn of the Jedi: the next arc is titled Force Wars, and starts in November. Xesh will be joining the Je’daii in defense of Tython.
A Spark Remains is the latest Dark Times arc (it premiered this past Wednesday). The protagonist will learn Darth Vader’s true identity.
Star Wars: Leia will pay a visit to the remains of Alderaan and make a terrifying discovery there.
Star Wars: Legacy 2: the first arc concludes with stuff they “don’t want to spoil”. However, Stradley teased a really great moment at the end of the first arc that left him teary-eyed. The second arc takes Ania Solo and her compatriots out into the wider galaxy.
Star Wars: Ewoks, Shadows of Endor, which we first announced in May, will be expanded from a single ARC into an ongoing series.
The Star Wars begins September, 2013.
Tom Taylor’s series has been placed on hold, but may be still on.
