What is meant by the 'canon' and 'legends' version of each page? Why was this started? I'm just in a state of haplessness about it —Unsigned comment by18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs).
According to recent announcements from Lucasfilm (see hereand here) the former Expanded Universe stories -- novels, comics, etc. -- are no longer part of the ongoing Star Wars story. New projects, such as Star Wars: Rebels and Star Wars: Episode VII, will be written either ignoring prior EU material, or using it only as a source for ideas without being bound by smaller points of continuity. The upshot of it is that Wookieepedia will now be describing two related fictional universes: one ("Legends") which contains the first six movies and all EU material released before 2014, and another ("Canon") which so far includes the first six movies, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series and movie, and the short story "Blade Squadron", but will eventually be expanded with future novels, comics, etc. —Silly Dan(talk) 16:57, June 1, 2014 (UTC)
