This page is an archive of a community-wide discussion. This page is no longer live. Further comments or questions on this topic should be made in a new Senate Hall page rather than here so that this page is preserved as a historic record.
The question has been answered in the only way possible at this time, and continued rehashing of the same points serves no purpose, so I'm shutting this down.—MJ—Jedi Council Chambers 04:02, January 16, 2014 (UTC)
If for some reason, the Disney Star Wars movie would be really badly made, or would change continuity in a way that would annoy/anger the majority of the fandom; how would Wookieepedia deal with it? Would you treat the movie and/or controversial parts as official canon and adapt them into established articles, or disregard the movie and/or controversial parts as irrelevant and counterproductive to the Star Wars fandom? Hopefully, this won't happen; but I'm wondering just in case. --188.8.131.52 02:50, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
Users on Wookieepedia do not get to pick and choose what is canon and what is not. Also, please sign your comments with ~~~~.--Exiled Jedi(Greetings) 02:47, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict × 2) It's WAAAAAAAYYYYYY too early to even attempt to discuss this. It's not worth attempting to cross bridges before you come to them. —MJ—Training Room 02:48, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I understand how this could be controversial, but I was just curious what normal policy was. I think I have my answer for now. Maybe I'll ask again after the movie is released. --184.108.40.206 02:50, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
We survived TCW so we are capable of handling even the most horrid canon disruptions. JangFett(Talk) 04:01, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
Jang pls. A joint project between Filoni and Disney would beat those odds. On the matter at hand, enough has been said but I just wanted to point out that there are a couple of SH around with the exact same question. Please be mindful to make at least a little bit of searching before opening up a whole new "thread" for something that has been discussed countless times. Winterz (talk) 04:16, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
First, Wookieepedia never had to "deal with the prequels"; we were founded in 2005. Second, the prequels at most only changed a few things here and there in the continuity, mainly because Lucasfilm had largely prohibited anyone from delving into that era with EU stories. The sequels, on the other hand, are most likely going to be made in an era filled with EU stories, and as such the new films could potentially throw out practically the entire EU. —MJ—Comlink 19:54, January 10, 2014 (UTC)
We will document the content as we always have. -- Riffsyphon1024 02:24, January 13, 2014 (UTC)
