    Are Sek'nos Rath and his family ever referred to as "Sith" in-universe or was that term only used by the Korriban/Ziost civilization before the Jedi Exiles arrived?

    I recall the term being used for his species in the comics.

    Is there anywhere other than TOTJ: Dark Lords of the Sith and Dark Empire: Empire's End where Korriban is said and/or shown to have thrones?

    Is there anywhere that explains how Obi-Wan got the 2000 credits he paid Han with in ANH? This is a random question I know but it popped into my head while watching the cantina scene and now I'm curious.

    Maybe by working as a wizard at children's birthday parties...

    Ok I remember that being in the film now. Before that though how did he survive while watching over Luke? Did he help people out to earn credits or something? I have the Kenobi novel but not on hand right now. I guess it was probably explained there.

    In the SE at least we see a Moisture Vaporator outside Kenobi's hut, explaining his source of water at least.

    I think Inside the Worlds of Star Wars Trilogy explained that Obi-Wan built small devices and tools in the small workshop in the basement of his hut and sold them to Jawas.

    Here's the thread. Amazon UK lists the hardcover for early September 2018 and the paperback for late May 2019.

    Were the "Lost 20" called the "Lost 19" before Dooku left the Jedi?

    Is The Clone Wars Legacy set in both Legends and Canon?

    No, because Legends just means "things future stories don't have to take into account."

    Depends whether he cares about the story being canon or not? :)

    From the new canon stuff, I would recommend the Star Wars Adventures series from IDW Publishing.

    He likes Anakin. His favourite films are episodes 3 and 8. Thanks for your help.

    Are the Vader or Maul ones suitable

    I really enjoyed the Vader and Maul series, and they are a little darker than some of the other comics, but this is Star Wars so everything is suitable for all ages. Make sure you get the Vader series by Charles Soule, not the one by Gillen. The Gillen run was good, but probably more complicated than an 8 year old would like. Also the Charles Soule series picks up right at the end of Episode 3, so if he's a fan of that movie he would love it. Also if he's an Anakin fan he might like the Obi-Wan & Anakin series as well. My other recommendation would be Star Wars: Kanan, which picks up right after Episode 3, and is perfect if he's watched Star Wars: Rebels, but still very enjoyable if he hasn't. However, it doesn't really feature many characters from the movies.

    Honestly, if you kid can sit through the end of ROTS, with Anakin slaughtering children and choking his pregnant wife, without being disturbed, he'll probably be fine with most other SW material. I remember when I saw it in the theater most of the younger children were inconsolably crying at the end.

    Do we know who owned the Falcon at the time of the Battle of Coruscant in canon?

    He wasn't born when it was at the cinema so has only watched it in the less stressful environment of home but he's never been disturbed by those scenes.

    It is my daughters least favourite film exactly for those scenes though
