As talked about in the lecture Henry Jenkins states that, “Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of crafting a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story”
With our internet driven media world, transmedia through the same universe is a very common thing and something that creates a wider audience who has a more in-depth understanding and appreciation during the universe. As Maude Garrett talks about in her Star Wars 101 video “the stories didn’t stop when the movies did”
