So the new canon has been going on for a while. Other than the announcement of abandoning the old canon for Episode VII, is there anything in the new canon so far that proves that everything released before April 2014 didn't happen? Or any canonicle plot points in Legends becoming overruled by contradicting newer content? SeanWheeler (talk) 21:51, October 9, 2015 (UTC)
In Legends, Chewbacca died in 25 ABY. In the new canon, he is alive and well in Episode VII, set thirty some years after Return of the Jedi.
The new canon seems to imply that Leia and Han never married and did not have any children. Luke also didn't marry Mara Jade Skywalker and they did not have a son.
According to Legends, Cassio Tagge died aboard the first Death Star. Yet he is alive and well in the Marvel comic book series.
The new comic books also feature Vader hiring Boba Fett to discover the identity of the pilot responsible for the destruction of the Death Star, learning that it was his son. In Legends, the event was portrayed in both Star Wars 35: Dark Lord's Gambit and Vader's Quest, and involved Vader personally interrogating captured Rebels.
These are just the few that come to mind. I'm sure there are more differences. QuiGonJinn(Talk) 22:29, October 9, 2015 (UTC)
They are the same planet, with Moraband being the name the planet was known by during the Clone Wars, something that is confirmed in the episode guide for "Sacrifice". - AV-6R7Crew Pit 15:34, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
Quinlan Vos goes on a mission to slaughter Count Dooku with the aid of Asajj Ventress. Along the way, they fall in love, but Vos falls to the dark side for a time before being redeemed and Ventress is eventually killed. Their relationship is apparently somewhat analogous to something that Vos had with a woman called Khaleen Hentz, who is now entirely Legends.
Pretty much anything that happened in the series The Last of the Jedi, I think we can safely assume never happened, characters such as Ferus Olin, etc., not being mentioned anywhere in the new canon continuity and no such events being referenced.
It's probably fair to say that anything related to Legends Barriss Offee that conflicts with what was shown in The Clone Wars is clearly bunk now. She probably was not welcomed back into the Jedi Order with open arms and executed with Secura during Order 66.
There's a lot of other more minor things that have been changed. For example, grav-ball appears with much different rules and format, to name just one example. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:56, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
I would note that Depa's fall into madness is indirectly mentioned in an early issue of Kanan. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 22:59, October 18, 2015 (UTC)
Wow, I guess they are rewriting Star Wars history. Guess we'll never know what happened to Legend Ahsoka. Canon Ahsoka is in Season 2 of Rebels. And how much of the stuff you listed is stated by The Force Awakens content? We don't exactly know everything about Force Awakens. For all we know, Han and Leia could still be married in episode VII, unless there are books taking place at the same time. SeanWheeler (talk) 17:10, October 20, 2015 (UTC)
Considering that Ahsoka originated from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is considered fully canon in the new continuity anyway, save stuff from the books and comics, there really is very little difference between the Legends Ahsoka and the canon Ahsoka anyway, before Rebels. As opposed to the massive difference between say the Legends Luke Skywalker and the canon Luke Skywalker. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:23, October 21, 2015 (UTC)
