    Star Wars General Thread - Sequel Trilogy, All EU is now Non-Canon, etc.

    Don't know if we have a SW thread, so I'll post this here.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/lucasfilm-unveils-new-plans-star-698973


    So, long story short, nearly all EU has been cast aside, save for those taking place before the original trilogy and its prequel (Old Republic is safe). However some EU concepts may make an appearance in the future films.

    Looks more like everything that isn't a movie or a Clone Wars tv series is on the chopping block. Not sure where the discrepancy comes from.

    Ayeap, but you never know, Disney might upgrade SWverse to stronger than ever before in a few years.

    Yep, and they shelved Sword of the Jedi and other upcoming projects because of this.

    I understand that they want to keep this whole cohesive thing going and all, especially for the new kids that are only really familiar with the current movies and Clone Wars stuff, but it still kind of feels like a slap to the face of people that supported the franchise through the EU up until now. Not much they can do about it, though.

    Sword of the Jedi? was that the next ridiculous story after the super evil chaotic force blob one?

    is all further continuation and development of EU dead then?

    On indeterminate hiatus until they sort out what the future is for the book continuity. Old Republic is safe, the projects between prequels and OT are safe, but everything post-RotJ is either scrapped or being shifted to that Legends title.

    They basically shoved all of post-RoTJ EU into an alternate continuity, so it's not like it's completely gone.

    I'm not even much of a fan of Star Wars, but it only shows that Disney will rape the franchise with its evil hands.

    Nah, the EU thing is to be expected. It's actually their logic behind making these new movies that reeks of Disney Magic. "There's still a market for SW films, so lets run it into the ground!"

    This is the worst thing to come out of this. Kyle Katarn is still around because there's EU stuff for him as early as around A New Hope but after the original trilogy is kaput.

    Sucks, man.

    Yes, I agree, things that you enjoyed and were good are suddenly not good, cannot be enjoyed, and do not 'count' (for what?) because Mickey Mouse made a tweet.

    I could just say that a lot of the precious EU is also bad and really should just be buried and forgotten because it's embarrassing but it's funnier to post Han Solo punching a space otter.

    That's the bad EU for you. Whoever thought of that really is amazing, they were able to get it into publication!

    Could get a mod here to rename this thread the star wars thread and have all the discussion that would happen when the movies eventually release have a prepard little dump bin in this thread.
    Nasu Knowledge:
    Saw all KnK movies.
    Played all of Fate/Stay Night, most of hollow Ataraxia, read Fate/ Zero, Prisma Illya (read and watched).
    Read Tsukihime manga, Melty Blood Manga, Melty Blood 2 manga and Melty blood X.
    Spoiler:



    What Fate/Stay Night character are you?



    Saber


    You are Saber. You are strong and determined. You fight for justice and honor, and protect those around you. Selfless in every way, you would put yourself at risk to save others. You are a knight; the sword and shield of your allies.
