I noticed there were rumors circulating that Disney has announced all Star Wars Expanded Universe material non-canon. Curious, I looked into it, and it seems that the rumors are unfortunately accurate.
IGN states, “Lucasfilm also clarified that only the six previous Star Wars films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars should be considered canon.”
Well, at least Clone Wars is still canon. I love Clone Wars and would have been crushed if it was taken out of canon.
Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said, “We’re set to bring Star Wars back to the big screen and continue the adventure through games, books, comics and new formats that are just emerging. This future of interconnected storytelling will allow fans to explore this galaxy in deeper ways than ever before.”
