Pretty much anything that doesn't conflict with the movies is still canon to me.
Shadows of the Empire, KOTOR, SWTOR and all the Tales of the Jedi stuff.
honestly, all of it... there's a lot of different aspects of the EU that I REALLY enjoy.
I would like a Game of Thrones style KOTOR TV SERIES
Now that TLJ is out, there's nothing to say that
Mara Jade cannot be re-canonized at some point in the timeline. A special Inquisitor, a Hand.
That said, I'm still not sure if I like seeing beloved characters reintroduced yet not to their full potential. Reeeally hope the next Thrawn book does him more justice.
All I can say to that is yes! yes! Room. Without. A. Roof!!!!!!!
Maybe they will recanonize her during the OT in a novel. Maybe the Inquisitors are eliminated, and Palpatine tries a new tactic: the Hands. They won't be as publicly known and would be better suited for infiltration missions than the Inquisitors ever were. In other words, keep them like they were in Legends, with maybe each one not knowing there are others.
I could even see them utilizing her in Rebels as a new dark side opposition for Kanan and Esra for the show's final stretch.
At this point? Just Revan
I almost hope they don't do Revan at this point. Could you imagine the mistreatment and injustice they would lay upon his character?
Mhm. Zahn or Dawson would be good choices.
Shadows of the Empire
I do think she'd be something like a secret inquisitor which is why she hasn't been seen.
Would you still want a romance or marriage with Luke? I think it would add another layer to Luke being depressed on the Island if his wife was killed when the temple was attacked.
I wouldn't want Mara used simply as a device for Luke's character development. She's a complex character in her own right, so I don't think that approach would do her justice.
That said, I loved the Luke and Mara as a couple in the EU. They complemented each other well, especially after Hand of Thrawn. And it's a bit of a trope reversal; there's aren't many good guy / bad girl pairs out there.
Also, SW has a lot of redemption themes, yet we rarely saw redeemed characters in action (sans Lando). So if Mara is re-canonized, I'd prefer her to be more than just another Inquisitor.
The Solo twins. Maybe Leia had twins she didn't tell Han about....he was too busy trying to be a smuggler again.
I think the ship has sailed on the Solo twins, sadly.
Shadows of the Empire would be awesome.
Especially given how prominent Black Sun already is in the newcanon - as well as it having a connection to the Falleen.
While there may be some details that would need to be changed, the plot of Shadows of the Empire could still work.
Yuuzahn Vong invasion, they can take out Chewie’s death, but it would great to see the horde descent upon the new republic.

I would love to see Revan and Malak show up somewhere. They don't have to be exactly the same characters with exactly the same backstories, but I would like to see the return of the characters.
Of course, in some ways, the return of our favourite characters will always be a poisoned chalice. The new canon will chop and change backstories, aesthetics and character to suit their own ends. Getting a butchered version of two of my favourite characters would really stick in my craw.
Don’t we need a younger Leia for shadows of the empire? Cartoon series?

I'd love to see people like Malak, Revan all get a good push, hopefully in a series.
Would love to see KOTOR and other parts of TOR recanonized as they occurred. Kkruhk and Tra Saa would be great as well. Lots of room for individual prequel jedi stories.
If we talk about bringing people back but being slightly different maybe Dash Rendar. Maybe the Cuy’dval. Darth Ruin.
