Same old, same old really, people misinterpreting or being ignorant of the rules. The only big thing that's happened to radically change debates is the Disney's remarks on Star Wars EU as being non-canon.

Been missing you, Mata. If this forum had a wall of fame, you'd definitely be at the top.

I'm sorry I wasn't able to comment sooner, was on vacation. Seeing this post made my day.

Appreciate that. Crossed fingers are starting to cramp, tho. Been two weeks since I applied, and I havent even heard from the first stage of the process.

They wanted to start from a position where they didn't have to rely on any of the plots from the books to make a movie.

Which makes sense, but Im asking if anyone has the source material where they made a statement to that effect.

Hope they don't kill off Boba with it.

Ok. So pretty much the UE stands until (and IF) the new materials change events. Is that the going debate guideline for it?

Although I don't typically debate for Star Wars, what I have observed is all EU considered as no longer applicable. This is also what various articles say, though this one in particular seems to take your approach.

The official statement says "Star Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe," which does not speak of EU material that takes place before (or during) Return of the Jedi. However, it also says "Demand for past tales of the Expanded Universe will keep them in print, presented under the new Legends banner," which implies it will be a separate story "universe," existing only for the fans. For this I believe we will need clarification.
