    Grievous' backstory already changed during TCW in 2008 or 2009. In Legends, he was turned into a cyborg because of an "accident" he was in, caused by Count Dooku and the Intergalactic Banking Clan to turn him into a weapon for the Seperatists. Now, according to TCW, he chose to be turned into a cyborg monstrosity. I too prefer the Legends version, as it makes him more of a tragic villain.

    I'd like for a lot of Count Dooku and Sidious' backstories to be recanonized and kept the same for the most part.

    They shouldn't change Plagueis' and Sidious' backstories. The Plagueis novel was pure perfection.

    One thing i hope they do change is Master Jinn, he had 2 prior padawans who fell 2 the Dark Side.

    That makes him a 2 time loser. 3 in the "long run" if Kylo stays evil.

    I think the best thing they can do is to leave the "Legend" characters alone.
    There just too much chance of "ruining/character assassination" of Character X from the old EU. I mean, what if they made Mara Jade a willing girlfriend of Xizor?
    If they really wanted stuff from the EU, I guess what they could do is, for example, say, everything written about the Yuuzhan Vong in Legend is the same as in the new universe. (Culturally, Historically). Except now with the FO on the verge of ultimate victory against the Resistance, the Vong shows up, all scarred up and screaming about necessity of destroying all droids, etc.

    Shadows of the Empire. That story is almost perfect and it still can work with this new canon. Now it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they took out the part where Xizor was trying to seduce Leia. I hope we get to see it movie form or at least in a cartoon. Not holding my breath though.

    I liked Shadows but I hate the character of Dash Rendar. Seemed he was just a Han type for the sake of it.

    I like the Rakatan Empire story arc they could canonize that easily.

    I'm afraid it cannot work anymore. (See "Moving Target" book and the "Forces of Destiny" short with Leia, Chewie and Maz Kanata in Ord Mantell).

    The thing is, they aren't changing them. They aren't erasing these things from existence.
    If you like the Legend version better, use that for your own personal canon.

    If they change something for the official canon, the old one still exists.
    It doesn't magically poof out of existence.

    Exactly. I don't get why we want to hear the same story over again.

    Want to find out what happened between Empire and ROTJ? Well, maybe the new canon will give us a story that doesn't involve Luke training at a circus, or a reptillian trying to seduce Leia in an extremely... problematic... scene.

    Stuff like Shadows was fun, but I like the current approach used with stuff like Thrawn- take what was good and put a new spin on it.

    Sure, but I'd take a reimagined use for Mimban over Splinter of the Mind's Eye :p

    The Way I See It, There Are 2 Different Timelines, The Main One Is The New Canon And Legends Is More Like Stories Told Far In The Future About The Events That Are Not Actually True Except In Some Alternate Universe. So I Honestly Just Want Darth Malgus To Be Canon And For Disney To Retcon The Canon Origin For Grievous And For Them To Make Him More Like The Legends Version, Since That Origin Is Way More Interesting, Maybe Bring Back Revan Too. I Prefer Some Things In Canon And Some Things From Legends And Think That The Only Reasonable Way For Them To Work Togethet Is If They’re Alternate Timelines. Do I Want Them To Explore Alternate Timelines In Star Wars? No. That Just Doesn’t Work Here And Works Better As Fanfiction Or Those Old “What If” Comics, Star Wars Is Just Not The Right Franchise To Put Alternate Timeline Exploration In, But For Canon And Legends To Exist In The Same Multiverse Without A Story Exploring It, That Is Perfectly Fine And In My Opinion The Best Option For Canon And Legends Right Now.

    That's an interesting use of Caps Lock...

    I kinda get what @Gechoman44 is going for though, and I think the "Legends" title of the canon along with some of the themes in The Force Awakens kind of lead many fans to feel this way.

    Ultimately, I say look at it however you want.
    If old canon is what you prefer, you have more than enough material to go off of.
    If you're excited about the new stuff, I imagine you'll get new goodies every year for quite a long while.
    If you can embrace both, good on you!
    And if in your mind, this is a way to reconcile both timelines into a semi-reasonable storyline, I'd say you do you.


    I think it's clear that the new canon at least in some ways echoes Legends anyway, so I could see how Legends could be reinterpretations of what "really" happened.

    As Ahsoka would wisely say: "There's always a bit of truth in legends." :)

    Don't get me started on that pheromone-induced attempt of intimate attack (ugh). Way better to have the Moving Target and Forces of Destiny explanation.

    One unnecessary thing that was changed was Windu's master. Went from a female tree species to a female Mirialan.

    Unnecessary is my opinion.
