    Really? Because these guys seem to be pretty cool with hanging with him.

    I don't know about you, but if somebody tried to chop me or a friend of mine in half, in addition to committing genocide, I'm not going to want to hang out with them, no matter how much they apologized.
    Yeah, well, if it didn't happen on-screen, it ain't canon. :bailey:

    Vader was never forgiven by the galaxy population. Follow the conversation.

    And the books after ROTJ are canon. Well were until Disney came along.

    Are you suggesting . . . TWO Death Stars?! :shock:

    Well, is the vehicle traveling on a moving runway?

    Great, show me onscreen where that happened.

    According to George, who said the first movie was always called "Episode IV: A New Hope," that Greedo shot first, that it was planned as a nine-film saga, then it was never a nine-film saga, only a six-film saga, and who's responsible for some of the worst films in the franchise. If you're going to consider the books to be canon, then you might as well consider the Holiday Special and the Ewok movies to be canon as well. (And we know how George feels about the Holiday Special.)

    While I accept the "canonicity" of things outside the films for the sake of argument--e.g., whose X-Wing is crashed on Jakku in The Force Awakens--I don't consider it on the same level as what is actually shown in the films. By and large, if it doesn't happen in the films, I don't care about it. The films are what matter to me, and I'm free to imagine any other aspect of that universe the way I like. Someone who objects and says "Nuh-uh! Nuh-uh! It states very clearly on page 14 of the Poe Dameron #7 comic book that...," well, they're free to have their opinion, but I'm free to dismiss it.

    At some point in the future, someone will start a new Star Wars film saga, and they may very well choose to discard all of our newly canonized material, just as was done when The Force Awakens was developed.

    I mostly agree, but my only override to this rule, is stuff that gets canonized by being shouted out in the movies.

    Like Maul in Solo, or Hera in Rogue One.

    Yeah, when we were working on Force Unleashed I remember it being exciting for the Star Wars fans in the office because Lucas Arts made a big deal of the story being canon. :lol:

    Even then it gets tricky. Coruscant was first named in a novel with the name adopted for in the movies.

    TFU was really good, I always thought it was canon. I guess Disney killed that?
