    • Since Starkiller is from Force Unleashed and that isn’t listed, that game is no longer canon, so no more Starkiller. Also appears that The Old Republic isn’t canon either, even though that mmo is still active and having expansions released still. Too bad.

  1. As for Battlefront, we don’t know when that is really supposed to be set do we? And Adrian, as far as I know, Starkiller is completely non-canon now, unless Disney decides to somehow write an altered story of him into their canon

    • Swtor, Kotor 1/2 and anything else from the Old Republic Era: Tales of the Jedi Comics/books are now no longer cannon. Same for Force Unleashed, Dark Forces, the Jedi Knight Games, Shadow of the Empire, any of the X-wings/Tie Fighter games.

      I’m afraid they did change Canon, we live in an EU Void of people like Kyle Katarn we just have to get used to that void now.

  2. The unnamed Han Solo prequel is called Indiana Jones. It will star Chris Pratt as Peter Quill who returned to earth to train Raptors after providing the space technology needed to recreate them. He is then later rendered immortal by an incident with the ark of the covenant and flung backwards in time, eventually changing his name to Han Solo, after a bout of time travel amnesia. He then meets up with Chewbacca. Han is able to understand Chewie’s roar because of the time he spent learning to communicate with Groot. Han and Chewie look into the camera, and say “To infinity and beyond”. Credits roll.

  3. OOOOORRRRR……EVERYTHING THAT DISNEY IS ABOUT TO MAKE IS NON-CANNON AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WE HAVE BEEN MAKING AND COLLECTING OVER DECADES IS STILL GOOD. SCREW YOU DISNEY, WHY CAN’T YOU JUST STICK WITH WHAT ALREADY EXISTS?? sorry for the caps lol, I’m so upset

  4. On the one hand, Shadows of the Empire is no longer canon.

    On the other hand, Mara Jade’s absolutely stupid death is not canon either.

    Chewbacca spending the last moments of his life screaming at the heavens daring the planet the Yuuzhan Vong dropping on him to come and kill him? Sadly not canon. ;_;

    Then again, neither T3-M4 nor Meetra Sutrik get clowned and easily killed anymore either, so… net gain. ^_^

    • Shadows of the Empire should be considered canon, seeing how the Black Sun were directly referenced in the Clone Wars TV series.

  5. This just shows how the new material fits into the original movie timeline. Books like Tales from Jabba’s Palace are still considered canon. In fact, all the books up until Episode VI are still considered canon, last I heard. The star wars wookiepedia will tell you if it is still considered canon or not.

    • Wrong. Straight from the wookiepedia website: On April 25, 2014, Lucasfilm Ltd. announced that in preparation for the upcoming sequel trilogy, the Expanded Universe would not appear in any future Star Wars materials; past tales of the Expanded Universe will be printed under the Star Wars Legends banner, and a new continuity has been established that consists only of the original six films, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series and film, and all future material from that point onward. Though past elements of the Expanded Universe have been declared non-canon as a whole, they remain a resource for future Star Wars material to reference elements of the EU, thus bringing these elements into the new continuity as canon.

      Now, if you look at Tales from Jabba’s Palace (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Tales_from_Jabba%27s_Palace), you can clearly see the LEGENDS banner at the top, and as per the above statement, all LEGENDS material is NOT canon. You should take a closer look at the novels on wookiepedia again, you’ll see most are not canon anymore.

  6. Forgot the Star Wars holiday special. I know a lot of people want to forget about it, it still happened and as far as I know it’s still canon

  7. This. This is precisely why I hate what disney has done to Star Wars, and so I’m boycotting their new stuff.

    Long live the real Expanded Universe!!!
