>>
Star Wars fucking sucks lol
>>
>>78009867
The only things I'm upset about are:
>Thrawn
>KotOR

I'm assuming both will be made canon in the coming years through movies and games and whatnot

It's in my headcanon, better than Marvel canon.

>>78009891
Just like ur mum on my dick lmao
>>
>>78009867
Nah, I don't mind it no being canon.

But I am kind of upset with how quite a good amount of Star Wars books won't be reprinted now.

That kinda sucks.
>>
I was glad cause the EU is 90% shit but all the new stuff has been 100% shit, i'm not really mad though, my rage ran dry long ago.
>>
Never worry about canon and non-canon. Everything is just alternate timelines and parallel worlds.
>>
Not really, because everything in the EU that isn't the Thrawn Trilogy is shit.
>>
>>78010120
>not liking KotOR, Tales or Republic
You're full of poodoo.
>>
>>78009961
Del Rey still reprints their old EU books, just with a Legends label on it.
>>
that's a big ferret
>>
>>78009867
No. Mostly because a story not being canon doesn't mean it goes away somehow.
>>
No.

I am an adult.
>>
>>78009867
At first I was glad because I thought Disney would refine canon and pay more attention, cancel out silly shit like rabbit aliens and 20 rebel raids to gather a fraction of the death star plan that would all be combined into the one Leia had.

But then Darth Vader and Luke duel with each other before TESB in a Marvel comic and I feel like >>78010046 "Nothing is true, everything is permitted"

Canon does not exist and will be purged yet again in 20 years or later because of reasons, nothing matters anymore. I say Crimson Empire is canon and I have never read it.
>>
>>78009867

A few things. But there was a lot of crap, and material that just didn't feel "Star Wars", and keeping it would have been a bitch for the new movies. I think the biggest loss is in the ancient stuff rather than the post-ROTJ stuff.

The thing I liked most in the EU was Genndy's Clone Wars, but it had so much Samurai Jack-tier ridiculous shit that I don't mind it not being canon. Shit like the lobster cannon, biker gang droids, and the ship that just smashed the ground to make shakewaves were all cool as shit, but I think a lot of it works better as just a non-canon interpretation of the clone wars. Hell, you could very well claim that stuff could all be exaggerated stories or myths from the war.

But the one thing I will forever be salty about is this glorious fucker no longer being canon.
>>
>>78009867
Yes, but not for /co/ reasons.

I hope TK-555 gets his moment to shine.

Just cause of this guy.
Which might actually be good, maybe now they can add him and make him live up to his powers.
>>
I would be, if 'canon' had any real meaning these days, or held any true importance outside religious materials.

With all the problems in the world, which 'elseworld' or Star Wars is the 'true/important' one is pretty unimportant.

I prefer the old EU, and consider it the original and true article. I also consider it to be a 'finished' alternate universe. After all, it's not like the material spontaneously combusted. But then, a film every year? Hopefully, even if through sheer number of releases over the next couple of decades, there should be plenty of decent releases. I've always preferred visual mediums.
>>
>>78009867
Yeah. Lucasfilm being too lazy to canonise simple stuff like kotor and a few noteworthy books like plagueis.

I'd rather they got off their asses and continued telling those stories under the legends banner alongside the nucanon. Books like legacy and sword of the jedi never had a chance.

Funny thing is TFA seems to be unintentionally ripping off Legacy
> Female lead who's a scavenger
> Reluctant hero
> She's a descendent of Han and Leia
> Black guy comes into her life
> They go on an adventure
> Stop evil masked sith

The similarities are weird.
>>
Are you upset that you can't talk about this on /tv/ without just getting:
>Shush child, you're diminishing the integrity of a board full of Bane spamming, pedo threads, "MAI WAIFU!!!" and inane banter.
?
>>
>>78009867
Relatively, but I'm getting over it through my usual methods when there are mass retcons by going "everything is canon until proved otherwise."
>>
Not very, because e.u.s never really feel like main continuity to me anyway.
>>
>>78009867
I used to be. But I realize now that canon is a personal construct. The fact of the matter is Disney's new shit is uninspired and nothing but pandering, and the old EU can keep me busy for years.
>>
I stopped giving a shit that KOTOR wasn't canon when TOR completely retconned KOTOR 2.

Fuck that shit.

Nothing.

This was in the first non-comic book old EU related media.
>>
>>78009903
This and maybe some Dark Horse stories and some of the early Del Rey Solo kids adventures.

But fuck everything else, it was a giant mess and I am fine with it getting thrown away.

However in the end nothing is canon like the movies are.
>>
>>78011046
This, not to mention at some point they will reboot everything with new actors and actresses once Hamill, Fisher, and Ford start dropping probably even before.

Disney is going to milk the shit out of Star Wars.

It has always been fanfiction, so why care?
>>
>>78009867
Not really.
Just irritated that its a whole ban of everything.
Mostly of things disney got no money from.
If you are a clever company, you would say "Movies are leading canon. Everything that contradicts is wrong. All that isnt from EU is canon too."
You have so many stories you can make money by just reprinting now.
>>
>>78009867
Yeah, a lot. Why?
>>
>>78022660
That's basically how old canon worked and, let's admit it, it was a bit of a clusterfuck.
>>
>>78009867
The new canon is already worse than the worst of the old EU, and we lost all the good stuff, so yeah, I'd say it's a net loss.
>>
Something always bothers me

If Vader was weakened as a cyborg then how did he constantly win against all those Jedi?

From what I've seen of the EU for one good thing you get about ten stupid things.
>>
>>78022693
Uh anon, most of the Jedi were dead by the time Vader took the lava dip. And while his limbs may have impaired his mobility, they didn't make him physically weaker, if anything they made him stronger. Vader was till a fucking beast, he just had to change his fighting style to accommodate his suit.

that describes pretty much all of star wars since the original movies. tho the games were good for awhile
>>

Not like Disney's canon is any better.
>>
Everything besides ESB and maybe a video game or 2 sucks dick.
>>
Is there any good stuff out that demonstrates Vader's remorse or looking back at how he was before his descent to the darkside?

I remember one page had him cradling C3PO's head while he remembered his mom's words. Stuff like that.
>>
I'm honestly conflicted.
On one side, i'm sad that Admiral Thrawn isn't canon.
On another, i'm afraid that Disney will make him a generic lame villain.

No. EU sucked. Never considered it canon anyway.
>>
>>78026274
It's not.
>>
>>78009903
they could just say all the pre EU lore from before the prequels could be the Dark Horse comics/video games and books around this setting of the Old Republic

and Disney could monopolize everything during and after the original trilogy

it's a fair compromise I'll say
>>
>>78026396
clone wars says otherwise and that's hardcore canon now.
Asian man fucked up when saying what's canon and what isn't for the prequels.
>>
>>78026463
The clones from the game show up in TCW for literally five seconds. That does not make their game canon, it only shows that they exist.
>>
>>78026463
Only Delta squad is canon, the game is not. Aurra Sing shows up too, that doesn't mean those comics where she shows up are canon too.
>>
>>78026584
canon as well
>>
Canon, non-canon, doesn't really matter.

They're all just fictional stories that someone wrote. You can read and enjoy whichever you want, it's not like the canon storyline are events that actually happened in real life or something.

It doesn't matter.

The EU timeline was fucking full anyway and, for good or ill, there was barely an idea hadn't been explored. And even with the majority of it being garbage, the sheer quantity of fiction means that there's still plenty of decent stuff to enjoy.

The only things I liked out of the EU were the Marvel comics, Splinter of the Mind's Eye, Han Solo Adventures novels, EWOKS!, and The Star Wars Holiday Special.

By definition it's not fanfiction.

Han shooting first hasn't been canon for over a decade, yet fans still stick with it. Disney's take on canon only affects what new works will include and build off of, and that's fine.

Please no. The Old Republic ran the idea of Revan into the ground. At this point I'd rather the canon material just avoid him completely.
