In the new (May 2008) issue of Total Film magazine (p. 138), Lucas is quoted as saying "Once Vader dies, he doesn't come back to life, the Emperor doesn't get cloned and Luke doesn't get married..." What kind of effect will this have on canon? Adamwankenobi 23:00, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

  • None. Everyone has their own continuity. Though, Lucas acknowledges some aspects of the EU, he doesn't accept all of it in his personal continuity. His continuity ended when the films did, but that doesn't mean he's gonna put a stop to the EU entirely. Just as Peter Mayhew says that as long as he's alive, Chewbacca is, too. Everyone has their own personal continuities. Wookieepedia, however, follows the overall Lucasfilm continuity, which includes the EU, no matter what Lucas's personal opinion is.

    • Yet it is still frustrating that he does this. I mean, it confuses people obviously and just creates more problems then it resolves. He needs to just stick to what his company does, or not comment. Purpilia 23:06, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
      • This was touched upon in a topic on StarWars.Com. It may be annoying and it may bug some people, but we do hafta realize that not everyone is gonna like or accept what happens in the EU as canonical. We all have our own personal continuities. I have my personal continuity in which Chewbacca lives, Luke is still a swingin' bachelor, Thrawn never existed, and Boba Fett's life ended when he did that slapstick pratfall into the sarlacc pit.

      • Perhaps this image may provide some insight into what Lucas may be thinking. Lucas has better things to do with his time than dirty his hands with the EU. If he did ever decide to have an influence on EU, one thing's for sure is that we'll be seeing alot less apostrophes. And mebbe Greedo might get some respect rather than be served to the scum of the universe. That aspect of EU irked me. Trak Nar 23:15, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
  • GL =/= G-canon. -- Ozzel 23:53, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
  • It's no different to what he's said before. I'm just glad I can ignore EU elements and have official backing as well. ;P VT-16 08:48, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

  • I bet this has just got all those salivating for 7, 8, and 9 jumping up and down now. -- Riffsyphon1024 05:32, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

    • That sounds like fun, actually! Looks like a project for me and my brother, as we love to think up wild and crazy retcons and theories. Trak Nar 05:06, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
