Han shot first. Han always shot first.

Which is why Leia dumped him and the baby.

"Ben Solo." Yuck. I still think that's one of the worst aspects of the new films - the lamest names the son of Han Solo could have ever received.

It doesn't even pass the playground test. Bullies would have a field day with anyone who's "been solo."

/If they wanted to honor Kenobi, "Obi Wan Solo" would have at least been redunantly funny. "Oh, be one, solo."

Indeed.  The original, much better Star Wars canon.  Not the lame modern Disney reboot.

The Star Wars that George Lucas actually approved and gave input on.

How is it "fanfic" for it to be a series of 200+ novels, with over 80 NYT bestsellers. . .that were made with the licensing from Lucasfilm, personal approval of George Lucas and Lucas's consultation and approval on the storyline.

I don't think you know the defintion of "fanfic".

Are all the novels that Disney/LFL is producing set in their post-2014 reboot also "fanfic" to you?

50 Shades of Grey was also fanfic. It also sold a lot of copies.

I was under the impression that Lucas didn't consider the EU canon. I believe he even said that if it wasn't in the movies, it wasn't canon. This was way back when I was reading them, so about 15+ years ago.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz​zzzzz

We've heard it all before. Yes, we know you're the biggest EU groupie in the room. Yes, we know you're still pissed that the EU has been tossed. Yes, we know you want a Knights of the Old Republic movie and that you think Mara Jade should have been in the new movies. Yes, it's a horrible, terrible, crying shame that Legends fans are being kicked to the curb and we feel so bad for you.

Now, go re-read Children of the Jedi  and cry in the corner, emo Legends kid.

Man, sometimes I feel like I'm the only Star Wars fan who actually likes Star Wars.

As for the EU, it was never canon, some of it was great, some of it was horrible, and it hasn't gone anywhere. I can re-read the books I like anytime I want. They just aren't making more of it. And they seemed to be very out of ideas so I don't think there would have been all that much more made that was worth reading anyway. I'm thrilled they declared it an alternate universe ("Legends") so they could start fresh for the new movies, and I'm hoping that the Lucasfilm Story Group is able to keep the average quality from tanking completely (though the first "Aftermath" book kinda sucked, honestly, but there wasn't anything continuity-destroyingly stupid about it).

Also: Rebels series finale tomorrow!

You and me both. Enjoy the good, appreciate the not so good for what it attempted.

The EU has 20 or so years of material, from many authors from many media. There is overlap, power creep, and a fair share of crap. Everyons knows someone who knows or is related to a Skywalker or Solo. And for the ones who don't, it gets dicier.

There was never the understanding that everything EU is canon. There were grades of canon (G-level, C-level, etc.). There were contradictions - is the Sith homeworld called Korriban, or Moribund? Can Vader's secret apprentice really lift a Star Destroyer, and kickstart the Rebellion?  Are Mandalorians a proud warrior culture who value honor, clan, and glory above all and anyone can become leader, or a pacifistic society with a monarchy?

Completely irrelevant, but anyone who wants a live action KOTOR needs to sit down. How many decent movie adaptions of video games are there? Which outcome will it be: redeemed Revan or Darth Revan? Leave the specialness of the game alone, because it is something that can only really be enjoyed in the medium it is in. The connection fans make with Revan is partially because of the game mechanics. Make Revan's exploits canon by other means, sure, but don't rehash a role-playing game.

Sarcasm: if you make Revan canon you run the risk of making Valkorian canon, which makes Koth Vortenna canon without the option to toss him out an airlock!
