    A Work in progress................

    A long time ago
    I can still remember how the EU used to make me smile
    And if I knew I had my chance
    That I could make those fans still dance
    And maybe they'd be happy for awhile
    But the LGS makes me shiver
    With every story they delivered
    Bad news for fandom
    I couldn't take more crap-dom.
    I can't remember if I cried
    when Mara's made a widowed bride
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day, the EU died.

    So bye-bye Mister blue skin guy
    Drove my X-wing to Bakura
    but Bakura was fried
    And those Noghri guys were wiped out from the skies
    Crying this is the day when we died
    This is the day that we died.

    Did you write the book of Zhan
    and do you have faith in the fans
    If Lucas tells you so
    Do you still believe in EU soul
    Can we save your story goal
    And can you teach me how to read real slow
    Well, I know that you're in love with crap
    cause you rode along that gungan trap
    You both kicked off your style
    For money packed a mile high
    I was a SW loving freak
    With a lightsaber and a ton of cheek
    But I knew I could no longer speak
    the day the EU died.

    So bye-bye Mister blue skin guy
    Drove my X-wing to Bakura
    but bakura was fried
    And those Noghri guys were wiped out from the skies
    crying this is the day when we died
    This is the day that we died.

    (I did not recall the song being so long, so I will get back to it)

    So even the parts that were developed by Lucasfilm or its subsidiaries are non-Disney canon now? Clone Wars? The Force Unleashed?

    Good rule of thumb: If it's been shown in a cinema or on tv it's canon, everything else... isn't.

    ...We're not counting the Star Wars christmas special in this of course... Well unless you want to... Though if you do I think we all have to question your sanity.

    From the manager (EHT) at the Jedi Council Forums:

    The official Disney / Lucasfilm position on canon has changed with the announcements regarding the Story Group. Now, essentially, instead of there being multiple levels of canon (and everything having a place within one of those levels), there is just one level of canon, and things either are or aren't canon. What has now been officially confirmed is that all of the movies will be canon, and so will be the Rebels and The Clone Wars TV shows. Expanded Universe material (novels, comics, games, etc.) that will come out after this point will be canon as well, but the EU material that came out before the announcement will not be canon. However, they have stated that they will continue to use that existing EU material for ideas (places, characters, storylines, etc.).
    The bolded part is important, since it indicates that anything in the E.U can be used.

    Take Daisy Ridley's character for example, she could be Jaina Solo, or she could be the daughter of Han and Leia, who has her father's mechanical aptitude and her mother's Force sensitivity, but with a different name, or she could be someone else entirely.

    What the story group has freed themselves of is a situation where if they include a character from the E.U. they'd be obligated to follow their entire storyline as it was written in the novels.

    In other words, they are feeling free to rip off the idea's from some good authors and not feel guilty about it..........

    Yeah, Disney is just another of the big corporations that rip off ideas from their contractors and still wants them to work for them another time.

    And what they should do is release new version of RoTJ with new graphic in the hangar, it looks like big maskirovka with the painted Falcon and other ships.

    Good writers borrow from other writers, great writers steal from them outright.

    There is no reason for Disney to feel guilty about it, they own the rights to those characters. The rights were signed away by the authors when they took the money and accepted Lucas's terms. Lucas sold the rights to Disney, so it's their baby to do with what they want.

    If you are speaking in a strictly legal sense, no, there is no reason for them to feel guilty. I am more than sure that Lucasarts covered their butts in that regard. If however you consider that those authors were operating under the knowledge that they had a free hand, and that there would be no movies post ROTJ (which Lucas was adamant about for some 20 plus years), you can see why those authors, and the fans of their work might be a bit miffed in seeing the EU post ROTJ being reduced to little more than resource material.
