1) Disney had to have free reign on what happens in the new movies, books, games, etc. I understand that.
2) Doesn't mean the books, games, etc. didn't happen, because they WERE produced, written etc. Toys were made, blah blah blah
Those are the two things that make whatever they do okay with my brain. It's fiction, I can deal if it doesn't all fit together, I will always consider it all "true" and the word canon will just not matter to me.
That being said, the biggest kick in the nuts for me on what Disney is doing, AND I have only skimmed a lot of people's posts here, so sorry if I say something wrong or attribute it to the wrong person.
But if what Jesse said was correct, ie until the Disney stuff "cancels" it out it is still canon, I'd be more ok with it. But if what Ed says, it's just all not canon right off the bat, that is the typical Disney kick in the nuts to me. Mickey says, "Who cares that this stuff has been in the lexicon for up to 37 years. We bought this, which means we can do what we want, and so it's all not canon anymore." Up yours! I think, for those of us who enjoy EU stuff, that is an ahole move. It just adds to my dislike of Disney.
Why not piss me off one item at a time? Let me think Thrawn exists while I deal with Jacen and Jaina and Mara not existing. "Un-canon" it as called for. But don't wipe it from canon asap.
The Legends thing is better than nothing, but overall bad taste in my mouth.
