    So the fact that Thrawn was brought in from the EU could other characters such as Mara Jade be Incorporated in to canonical universe, because it was never mentioned who was being trained by Luke Skywalker and he was never taught the Jedi code so is it possible that Mara jade could of been helping Luke Skywalker with the training a was brutally murdered by Kylo Ren. Also could Dash Rendar be brought into the universe in the Han solo movie as they were competitive smugglers but also friends,yet this would mean that prince Xizor would be made canon which would require an additional movie to explain the back story between the two characters and what happened to the prince as he would be one of the most powerful characters yet not be affected by the empires movement and in the Eu he is killed by Darth Vader for trying to replace him as the emperors right hand man.

    Wishful thinking. I do want Prince Xizor back.

    The EU is dead.

    There are a small handful if concepts I'd be ok with carrying over but in the main I'd rather they start afresh.


    Thrawn was one of those concepts

    And I would be seriously eternally unapologetically chuffed if Mara was recanonized. :D [face_dancing] [face_love] Yuppers, yum. :D

    Each to there own. Mara was an OK character, decent to begin with but I didn't like her by the time we got to NJO. Not having her back wouldn't bother me personally.

    I have no overt interest in new Star Wars beyond the movies, so while I would quite like if Mara could appear on the silver screen in Disney canon, I'm happy that we got the Juggernaut in Rogue One, and an Interdictor cruiser in a trailer for Rebels.

    It was nice too, hearing that Thrawn is back.

    I mentally merge both continuities anyway.

    1. Set all the NuCanon Eu post-Endor after Palpatine’s final death in 11 ABY in Dark Empire. This makes Ben Solo their fourth child.

    2. Set Legacy of the Force in 37 ABY as Betrayal originally intended. This deals with Mara and Jacen before Ben Solo entirely falls. Presumptions are that Chewbacca and Ackbar survived their Legends deaths.

    3. Set all sequel era content in 40 ABY onwards, after Crucible/Mercy Kill. This sets Luke and Han’s deaths post-Legends.

    4. Legends picks up in 120 ABY with Legacy.

    Done.
