Kind greetings to everyone. I've been kind of heavily into the Star Wars universe a few years back, and now that I've watched the new movie, I am noticing a bunch of contradictions. I hope someone could provide an answer. On one hand though, the movie sucked so bad, I'm not even surprised about the mistakes.
Anyways. At first I was terribly confused about this "Kylo Ren". Am I correct in thinking this Ben Solo was created only for the purpose of the movie? I was at first confusing him with Ben Skywalker, son of Mara Jade and Luke. I mean, couldn't they name him something else, less confusing ? So, is he invented, "un-canon" sibling to Jacen, Jaina and Anakin Solo ?
Another thing is Chewbacca's death. It states on wookieepedia he died on Sernpidal in ~25 ABY. How come he lives in the new movie ?
Hopefully I am not babbling.
Thanks. —Unsigned comment by22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs).
Hello there! Simply put, everything that wasn't one of the six movies or the Clone Wars animated series was discarded back in 2014. The Expanded Universe was rebranded "Legends," and is no longer part of the Star Wars canon. That's why the new movie and the stories you're referring to don't mesh. --LelalMekha (talk) 21:42, January 5, 2016 (UTC)
