So it sounds like Star Wars Expanded Universe (EU) books/comics/video games up to this point are being politely, but reverently, set aside and called "Legends" in order to make way for new canon. Wow. StarWars.com Press release and video: http://starwars.com/news/the-legendary-star-wars-expanded-universe-turns-a-new-page.html. The video was basically a eulogy for the EU. I knew something would have to happen with all the EU and I'm sure this will anger many EU fans, but as a long-time reader who has read pretty much everything in the EU, this will take some time to digest. It doesn't diminish my love for Star Wars EU, but now I will always have this schism in my brain. I'm sad to see the EU be "put on the shelf" and hopefully it won't be disregarded by future fans, but I suspect that's what will happen. The stories were still great reads and a fun part of my childhood and I still pick up every comic and novel that comes out. Does them not being a part of canon diminish the stories, characters and events? Not in any way. I say bring on new SW movies and I will enjoy all aspects of the galaxy far, far away.
