Re: Star Wars EU is not Canon
Date: 4/30/14 4:11 pm
In Response To: Re: Star Wars EU is not Canon (Asian Inferno)

: I'm the minority here by saying I enjoy the prequels in my own way, and
: having grown up with them I do prefer them in certain ways over the
: classic trilogy. That said I did enjoy a lot of the EU published since
: then and kept up with all sorts of the branching out they were doing for
: the past decade and some.

: I guess this goes with my prior comment, but only having started liked Star
: Wars from 1999 onwards, I attempted reading the books and comics from the
: 70s, 80s, and early 90s era and was very turned off by the content it
: produced. I did not enjoy the Thrawn trilogy one bit. I don't know what it
: was but it all felt dated and in a lot of ways was a lot more
: mystical/fantasy-like rather than the more sci-fi elements of what the
: latter content produced.

: Which is why I've kept up to date with everything since and have rarely
: turned down any new Star Wars stuff. I especially love the comics: KOTOR,
: Clone Wars, anything that took place in and around the original trilogy
: (IE: Empire/Rebellion), Legacy, even Infinities was fun. So it's
: definitely a big disappointment to see them throw out all of that, but the
: canon definitely was not managed properly from the start.

: But I really enjoyed The Clone Wars and really can't praise it enough (nor
: stop wishing Disney didn't cancel it), and I'm really glad both that and
: the upcoming Rebels will be the first "new" pieces of official
: canon along with the movies.

: It's strange though, even though Star Wars is really a big favorite of mine,
: on occasion more so than Halo, I'm was never as concerned for the canon of
: that as I am currently with Halo. My faith in the franchise definitely
: took a beating after 4, but I hear the new comic series is good (not gonna
: read it till I buy the tradeback) so a lot is riding on 5 for me.

I've heard great things about Clone Wars. I'd probably feel differently about the new trilogy if that had been my first exposure to the franchise as a kid. Whether you started in 1999 or 1977 can make a big difference!

Maybe it has to do with being a kid? I was less of a kid when Return of the Jedi came out, and was a little put off by the Ewoks. Fingers-crossed for what's next.
