The Lucasfilm Story Group And The Future Of Canon

Bespin refugee - January 08, 2014
Over the years, it has been generally believed that, outside of the six films, "The Clone Wars, and "Rebels", almost everything else has been considered 'unofficial' canon, and part of the "Expanded Universe." From now on, that may be changing. During the last couple of days, via a series of tweets, there has been a discussion about the "Lucasfilm Story Group", which includes Leland Chee and Pablo Hidalgo. The Story Group has "a hand in all facets of Star Wars storytelling, including movies, TV, games, and publishing"; whose 'primary goal' is "to dispose of the hierarchy [between 'officially' and 'unofficially' recognized] and have one cohesive canon"* As far as I can tell, there's been no word on whether any earlier material will be included, or, if it's just from this point on.

Also, this means that Boba Fett is still died a screaming pansy. That's right...DEAD DEAD DEAD.

Well that's one good thing. Now if they can manage to keep him dead in the new films, that'll be another plus in my book.

I was never too hung up on what they choose do do with all those past Star Wars stories, whether they "count" or not. IMO, if they've been made and you enjoy them, they will always "count" on some level.

So what if one storyline of SW isn't in continuity with another stoyline of SW? The longer your franchise is around and the more and more mediums they use to tell stories (movies, books, comics, cartoons), it will be nearly impossible to keep EVERYTHING in continuity with each other. Look at comic superheroes for instance.....

no mention of the Holiday Special or Ewok movies...for shame.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Becomes "Legends"

That could effect the content of the new movies, correct?

From what I read in another article, there has always been two "timelines" for Star Wars. The first being whatever Lucas did and the second being everything else. But if Lucas liked something and put it in his movies then it became "officially" part of SW canon continuity. From now on the group will say what is and isn't officially part of the SW continuity.
