Yeah yeah, I know, May the Fourth was last week. But when is there a time NOT to do a Star Wars comic? I mean really. I had fun making the lightning here. I’m tempted to take pictures of random people and applying force lighting to them.

Anyways, I can’t help but feel bad for anyone who was really invested into the Star Wars EU post Return of the Jedi. I’m sure most of them wanted to see those stories adapted into movies. Because I hadn’t read any of those books, the movies would have been new to me. But then my friends have told me those stories and all the best twists and stuff, so there’d be some things I saw coming.

And lets face it, the best part about the movies not being based on the EU is that we WON’T see anything coming. We didn’t have that in the prequels, we always new what was going to happen next. There was no mystery, honestly. With the new trilogy, anything can happen. There’s actually a chance for another iconic “I am your father” moment.

But even before LucasFilm de-canonized the EU, did we really need them to do so for them to tell us they didn’t care about that continuity outside of the paycheck it brought it? Lucas has published so many conflicting stories that you could only pick the one you liked the best and ignore the others.

And even though The Clone Wars and the new show Rebels is held on the same level of continuity as the movies, and even though I liked Clone Wars, I don’t consider those canon either. I’m only attached to the movies.

So what I’m saying is I think its good they’re not basing the movies off anything. I feel bad for those following the EU, and I acknowledge 100% that I’d probably be as mad as they were if I were as invested. I just hope this is a good thing for Episode VII.

Also, correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the post-Return EU still being written? Like it’s just not canon but hey, here’s a cool story? I thought I read that somewhere.
