Yeah. Those tweets are either unaware of or choosing to ignore the fact that Tarkin and Mothma both received deeper characterization in Legends, too. "But most importantly, both are more than what they were in the OT movies they were featured in." ... That's the most important aspect of the canon reboot? Give me a break. Don't get me wrong --- praising the directions that characters are getting taken in the new EU is all well and good --- but it's the pretending that it's new and revolutionary and that it didn't happen in the old EU that makes me shake my head. Granted, Tarkin and Mothma's rebellion-era characterization in Legends came mostly from Sourcebooks rather than literature, but seriously, read this article and try to tell me that Tarkin wasn't "more than what he was in the OT movies" before 2014. Besides, Luceno's novel would have fit perfectly into the old EU with only about three words needing to be changed. I agree completely with the initial tweet --- "When Lucasfilm rebooted the Star Wars canon a few years ago, they weeded out a confusing and contradictory timeline, allowing them to focus on the saga moving forward. It was a necessary move" --- but after that it just becomes gushingly dishonest. "The canon reboot has deepened the saga. It's given us new viewpoints on the characters we love. But it has also elevated some supporting characters. And that's good. That's very, very good." Oh wow! Deepening the saga? Giving us new viewpoints on classic characters? Elevating supporting characters? I can't believe Legends never thought of any of that!
