This is just an accidental idea I had and thought can bring some interesting reflection. I don't know if any franchise ever did this, but what if Star Wars wasn't a standard canon? Like, Disney release and license lots of content about Star Wars, and if you like it, you add to your canon. Disliked the prequels? No problem, it didn't happened if you want to believe. Found an amazing book which passes at the same time of the Prequels? Awesome, it's what happened before A New Hope. If so, it might even happen of other books change a few perceptions from past works: Darth Vader is Luke father in Episode V? Well, in this book it was just Luke's hallucinations. Even, as it quite happen for many, we could even create situations as it happened in content but it will ever be alive in our memories (Like, every important character life in the franchise). If you liked this idea, which would be your canon content? For me, I think I'll take Episode III up to VI as canon, RO also happened but I'd link to a fan fiction I have an idea for which changes the main characters end to something where they live and even interact with the OT characters but in a time off the movies, of course. Plus, I think I would link Thrawn trilogy as my canon sequel.
