    So it's not just me, it is confusing, eh? (it even got my Canadian out in my typing lol)

    I still refer as the EU, now legends, as the "old EU" lol... I hate when they try and rebrand stuff... just brand what you're making and leave the old brands alone.

    As for this discussion about semantics, you're right... the story group couldn't even get through the first two movies and first book series without fixing things. In an entire galaxy spanning millennia, it's not feasible to expect a story group to keep things in check not knowing what's to come. I wouldn't want them to nix a great idea just because a passing comment in a book that maybe 5000 people read and 90% forgot, contradicts it. Movies should always supersede novels, games, comics ect... I can't see a future where it doesn't.

    Ha! A ‘Canuckian slip’. Sort of like a ‘Freudian Slip’, but with more back-bacon :D
    'I used to be into the 'EU', but then they changed what the 'EU' was. Now what I’m into isn’t the 'EU' anymore and what IS the 'EU' seems weird and scary. It’ll happen to you!'
    Definitely agree there. The brain trust at work over at LFL is made of die hard fans that live and breathe all this stuff. But they’re just people. People are fallible and are going to make mistakes. It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but ‘when’ and ‘how often’. The sentiment of a sprawling, uncompromised continuity is lovely and all, but it’ll surely become unmanageable at some point. Kind of unavoidable.
    Totally agree here too. I wouldn’t want creativity hampered by priggish conformity to an inflexible canon. “Sorry, Benioff and Weiss, that’s a great idea, but it would totally conflict with this young reader novella we published six years ago. Maybe try thinking INSIDE the box if you you could. Thanks.”
