Images that seem to reveal a new Stormtrooper helmet design have been leaked online through Indie Revolver.

The images, which are said to have come from a reliable source, draw inspiration from the original Ralph McQuarrie concepts and build upon the classic Stormtrooper look of the original trilogy to bring a more modern and up to date feel to the Imperial soldiers we already know.

The images have not yet been confirmed officially but since the leak photographs have also been seen of physical props, and other Stormtrooper designs such as an updated Snowtrooper.

Marvel has announced three new Star Wars comic series at San Diego Comic Con 2014.

It was only a matter of time before Marvel jumped back into Star Wars after the deal with Dark Horse Comics ended last year, and at Comic Con we have seen the reveal of not one but three new series, which will be the first contributions to Star Wars from Marvel since the 1980s.

The first, simply titled Star Wars, seems to follow the heroes of the Rebel Alliance shortly after the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It will hit shelves in January 2015, written by Jason Aaron, and illustrated by John Cassaday.

Star Wars: Darth Vader will also follow the story past A New Hope, but this time focusing on the Dark Lord and his recovery from defeat after the destruction of the first Death Star. It is due out in February 2015, written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Salvador Larroca.

Star Wars: Princess Leia is a miniseries following everybody's favourite princess as she laments the destruction of Alderaan and grows as a leader of the Rebellion. Due in March 2015, it will be written by Mark Waid with art by Terry Dodson.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline

Check out the timeline! It's still under construction!

In the continuity of the Star Wars saga there are eight clearly defined eras into which every story fits, and you can see these listed below.

The earliest stories occur Before the Republic, and tales of the Sith Wars and Jedi Civil War take place during the Republic era. The time of the Star Wars prequels are nestled within the Rise of the Empire era, which comes to an end with the Battle of Yavin and the start of the Rebellion era. After the fall of the Empire comes a New Republic, but the galaxy is changed again when the Yuuzhan Vong invade the galaxy at the start of the New Jedi Order era. The future is unclear, but many tales have already been told in the Legacy era...

The final publishing category is Infinities, which are often alternate universe or other stories considered non-canon. We currently have not included these stories in our timeline.

As new stories are always being added, this is a continuous work in progress, so if you spot a mistake or omission please let us know!
