Discussion in 'Star Wars: Episode VII - Spoilers Allowed' started by YoureNotJonesy, Nov 2, 2012.
Besides wondering if an innocent comment we make will blow up into a canon argument you mean.
I'm going to blow this thread up with a cannon.
Stand by Ion control, fire.
*pew, pew pew*
(Intercom voice) the first transport is away, the first transpost is away(/intercom voice)
Random extra 1: where we shooting at the eu or the haters
Random extra 2: *shrugs*
Ok I was watching NerdAlert on youtubeand they said Disney has appointed someone name Lee with a group called holocron keeper to go through all EU and pick and choose what will be cannon going forward.
ok sorry for double post and could not re-edit but after looking more into the holocron keeper who is Leland Chee who worked with GL to make sense of all things canon. Sorry if this was brought up before I did do a search and found nothing on this.
Holocron sounds like a Halloween candy.
Too bad only Jedi (according to TCW) can unwrap it... No wonder why the republic fell, the Jedi missed all the warning signs of diabetes caused by their special candy.
Just dropping this link to the Canon policy in here again. Looks like there may be some new questions related to the latest on official continuity, what's acceptable to discuss and where, etc.
Sorry EHT I was just bringing up how Disney has commision Leland to continue the canon going foward and not trying to make a point. I thought it was interesting and I think it is good that Disney has kept those who worked with Lucas to help keep Star Wars what it is hopefully.
That's fine, it was really just a reminder and/or information for those who may have missed that updated policy before.
The best canon policy would be "don't even ******* mention it"...
That is what is going to happen. The next gen will be different from the EU, the jedi will be different from the EU, Chewie running around, galaxy different from the EU, etc. Probably get an "all will be revealed" mention that will never happen. Pieces of the old EU canon will probably worm their way into the new merchandising materiel. It'll be like the "DC New 52" reboot wherein it's a reboot of the continuity but random pieces of the old one are plucked from it and offhandedly referenced to, etc.
New interview of Simon Kinberg. Discusses possible EU influence on spin offs & he also finishes with the status of canon.
I'm gong to blow a cannon up with this thread......
As expected, anyone who thought JJ & Co. would adhere to EU canon must of had a few too many Jawa Juices. However Looks good for pre-prequel canon of the Old Republic. *Cough* KotOR films? *Cough*
Translation: expect adapation of some EU stuff (though it could be anything from easter eggs to key stuff) but also expect lots of retconning to the EU from all upcoming stories, so for the moment till I can say more only the movies are canon to simpliy things
(Misspeak about the fate of TCW as confirmed canon by not including it? or is Disney about to retcon some of it??? Let the crazy debating begin )
I'd take it on face value rather than trying to translate it. Will also help avoid a c**** debate. Just nice to get a definitive statement on the topic, finally
TCW will stay canon I believe as its prequel era which will likely be untouched, however a poodoo ton of post ROTJ EU will be retconned or scrapped altogether. The Six films will always be the foundation. That doesn't mean we wont see Kyle Katarn or someone like him turn up. All depends on what JJ/Kennedy feel is right for the story they are telling. Rightly so.
this is what i've been saying.
What an amazing interview where... regardless of your stance on EU and what you personally wanted to hear... his words are somehow easily translated to say precisely your position. He ought to forgo Hollywood and go solve global conflicts.
I cannot like this post enough.
True, he was non committal & vague, until the final comment anyway.
Personally I interpreted his words as an allegorical commentary/deconstruction of the Iran/Israel tensions, and actually having quite little to do with Star Wars. But maybe that's just me.
Not really. The line about "the canon is the canon and the canon is the 6 films" is kinda......definative.
