Fanon is a slang term used to describe any event, character, story, or other aspect related to a story, that is conceived by a fan of the Star Wars universe, and applies to Star Wars. The term is a portmanteau of "fan" and "canon," and is sometimes used to be synonymous with "non-canon," which roughly means an accepted plotline or story relevant to the Star Wars universe that was not approved by George Lucas. This correlation is not entirely accurate, as fanon can be used to explain events in the canon universe that have not yet been explained by canon sources. However, fanon should not always be taken seriously, as it commonly contradicts canon.
