The old republic era has not been mentioned in all this so I am not certain if they have any intent for that era. But it does appear Thrawn MAY not make the cut. they are using EU for inspiration and they have featured some EU things in The Clone Wars so their is hope he might make it in. Ventress, Nightsisters, Death watch, Cyborg Maul and many other things made it in after all even if their stories were changed a bit. Darth Revan was actually modeled and intended to be in the Mortis episode but was cut last minute so there is hope.

It just annoys me also that they half *** the last season of the clone wars but call it canon. But the EU was an amazing view into what happens after the movies. It wasnt even that contradicting.

Ya the half *** last season ****** me off too. As for contradictions there are actually a lot if you look in to the many star wars stories. Did you know their is like a dozen versions of how the death star plans were retrieved by the rebels.

According to Dave and the rest of the team they didn't know season 6 was going to be the last season so they had to refit some episodes and rush the plot.

The old republic era is s till canon, in the clone wars behind the scenes they had plans to place revan, bane, and many other sith lords from the past in it and things from the old republic era have been mentioned. Don't worry, that is still there.

I agree partially but these authors knew what they were getting in to. Each Author who asked to be licensed was warned up front that Lucas may continue his story and that may include content they write about and may therefore make their story non canon.

Jesus christ, I hate how lucas/lucasfilms has the gall to say that they are trying to build an internally consistent world. What with the whole nonsensical prophecy, with every new EU jedi/sith being the most powerful... So much damn ret-conning, and contrived reasoning to make some things fit and you might throw out some of the best post-movie material. So much of this could have been avoided if you had sat down and looked over each new piece of material that was made, reviewed it and seen whether it would contradict some of the main themes. Instead you just seem to ok every god damn thing.

I can see the good and bad in this decision.

Yes rewriting the EU to what Lucasarts feels like isn't fair to the writers who put thousands of hours into their extensions to the Star Wars mythos or to those of us who've grown attached to the characters and stories, but if they do some tweaking here and there to make the EU more cohesive as a whole than I personally don't see the problem.

I sincerely hope they don't drastically change m/any stories but as Ozzy667 said, at the end of the day, it is Lucasart's product to do with what they will.

With all of these changes happening to the franchise as a whole, it makes sense for them to fix as many of the inconsistencies as possible in preparation for a new chapter in Star Wars history.

They only have the right to do this if Phantom Menace is better than the EU.....
Anyway I felt they should've kept some great and popular elements of the EU. KOTOR and its Era, Thrawn (though he was understandably cut), TFU, Battlefront campaigns, and the Jedi Knight + Dark Forces series, these will always have a place in my heart.

Oh no, all my books/games just evaporated off my shelf! Except they didn't, so why exactly should this matter? Most of the EU was a horrible, convoluted mess anyway; it needed to be wiped.

Though as raeldrikp said, it's LucasFilm's fault for letting things get this bad to begin with.

May I point out that this was the old mentality, the idea was only the original films were hard cannon, everything else could be changed at Lucas Arts leisure, the only real difference now is that they've added the clone wars to the list.

Most of you people, you have not read the news very well, they do not say that all the UE after Endor will be deleted, just it tells how the new films will tell the story after Endor different.

At my opinion, they wanted delete the Vong era and they made these news because the Episode VII is set 30 years after Endor.

I am confused by this also because they have not mentioned any of the old republic era. Their new team of writters and star wars historians are looking at the Galactic Empire era and after ROTJ era so I am curious about it as well

KOTOR is set so far in the future, that it cannot adversely affect the Star Wars timeline, unlike many of the EU books do. I believe that this is why KOTOR / SWTOR is still considered viable.

disney cant just take a show off of air they have no idea for what they are doing if disney never bought lucasfilm no one would have been like this now disney will pay for what they had done t o star wars because why would disney buy star wars if those monsters take it off air it is not fair and disney is so unreliable **** disney for giving those crappy shows they had over the years they should had deleted shows from the late 1900,s

as much as i appreciate some EU stories, the one thing that has always bugged me is that every single writer wants their Jedi/Sith to be "the most powerful ever", it is why i liked Thrawn because he himself wasn't a force user and was just a great tactical and strategic leader
So i reckon that the EU needs to be purged in part, and unfortunately good stories will probably get removed as well due to the need to remove the rubbish

Description

Beside the 6 movies. I have read several articles today on the new films and George Lucas Statements along with Lucas Studio statements such as this portion of one.

"While Lucasfilm always strived to keep the stories created for the EU consistent with our film and television content as well as internally consistent, Lucas always made it clear that he was not beholden to the EU. He set the films he created as the canon. This includes the six "Star Wars" episodes, and the many hours of content he developed and produced in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars". These stories are the immovable objects of Star Wars history, the characters and events to which all other tales must align. "

Now basically George Lucas and Lucas film basically wanna finish the story that Lucas started to tell decades ago. They will take inspiration from EU but they DO NOT want to simply take an EU story use that as the script. They want to surprise us and keep us guessing. Basically The Clone Wars the movies, Star wars Rebels and the new films coming out along with other things Lucas Film is doing now will be the official story for the Star Wars universe. For better or worse Lucas Films is going to tell this story, not EU authors. Their intentions are not only to tell the story they want but by taking on this task they are hoping to eliminate the hundreds on contradictions created by EU because of the many different writers telling overlapping stories. Basically most EU is becoming more like Fanon now.
