    This is the nice thing about having a head canon. You can include/exclude what you want, keeping your personal experience enjoyable.

    Also I do agree with @Grand Admiral Kraum that TRoS is really underrated. Wasn't the best in the series, it has its issues, but it's still a pretty fun ride.

    "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    The entire Sequel Trilogy is Star Wars Canon.

    You don't get to pretend otherwise just because you don't like certain aspects of it.

    But sometimes you can ignore some facts and just give up of watching some of the movies.
    I ignore complety the midiclorians and I'm glad that they were not mentioned in the ST (at least I don't remember).
    Same with the force ghost of young Anakin in the end of ROTJ. I gnore this version and I prefer to rewatch the original.

    ^ That's not how things work.

    "Headcanon" is not a conceptual excuse to "ignore stuff one doesn't like", but a means to enrich what is actually Canon by supplementing it and/ or helping to rationalize and explain discrepancies within it.

    ^ Merriam-Webster hasn't officially added the term "headcanon" to their Dictionary, but they did publish an article about it.

    Quoting from said article:
    An example of "headcanon" that conforms to that description would be the following:
    "Nik Sant" is an alias of Clone Captain Rex that he adopted at some point between the execution of Order 66 and the Battle of Endor.

    Another example would be "Baby Yoda" is the offspring of Yoda and Yaddle.

    "Headcanon" is simply story continuity that only exists in your head. It’s imaginary. Because of that, it’s only limitation is that of your own imagination. Which is to say, there isn’t one. It can be whatever you want it to be. There are not rules to headcanon. It’s the version that exists exclusively in your own mind.

    You want to pretend the PT never happened? You’re allowed to do that. You want to pretend the ST never happened? You’re allowed to do that. You want to pretend the entirety of the Star Wars saga is merely the wild fever dream of Indiana Jones while under mind control in Temple of Doom. You’re allowed to do that too. It’s your brain. It belongs to you and you alone. Nobody gets to tell you “that’s not how it works”. It works however you want it to. It’s yours.

    I got news for you. Rocky 5, Superman 3 & 4, Godfather 3, and any Terminator movie after T2 doesn’t exist in my world, ;)

    I'm all for people having their head canon but what I have issue is when people start stating their head canon as a fact (generally speaking)

    I am making a new word
    hëädcänön- Replacing "canon" with something else.
    Example- Cutting out the ST and making Luke an evil dictator after ROTJ.

    ^ Life doesn't work like that, sorry.

    You don't have to like the ST, but it exists as Canon regardless, and there's nothing you can do to change that fact.

    Conveys everything I want to say about this film. But can't (and am still processing). If ever a piece of art can affect someone. It's this:

    Just realised that Rey was constructing her own saber at the beginning of the movie when she's reading the jedi text.
    Even the yellow crystal is there!
    Great scene!
