The distinction between EU and canon is no more. Everything SW is now considered canon. Sorry.

Wait, so they actually did the whole "lets decide on one canon" thing, and then decided to just include everything? Really?

Am I missing something? Where does it say that everything is canon now?

Read the article, dude. This is what it says:

quote:

The mouse and the chainsaw

Word began trickling out over Twitter last week that Disney will be drastically redefining the state of the Star Wars lore, eliminating the bifurcated mainline/EU arrangement and in its place constructing a single official canon. All things that are part of the canon are "real," as far as Star Wars is concerned; all things not in the canon are "not real." This eliminates the quasi-real EU tier—going forward, things will either exist officially, or not at all.

Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who currently maintains the internal Lucasfilm database that tracks the different elements of the canon, will be one of the folks making this decision. He tweeted that "Star Wars Canon is now determined by the Lucasfilm Story Group," which he and fellow Lucasfilm employee Pablo Hidalgo are part of. When asked specifically whether the group's goal was to eliminate the mainline/EU canon arrangement and its tiers of official-ness, Chee responded with a definitive yes. "More so than ever," he said, "the canon field will serve us internally simply for classification rather than setting hierarchy."

Now, no longer will there be a complex multi-level hierarchy of canonicity—there will simply be canon, and not.

This is an excellent decision, and one that a certain other science fiction franchise whose name also includes the word "Star" made long ago. For Star Trek, the tie-in novels and other ephemera have always been non-canonical. At times, this has been a good thing, because some of the novels have been truly terrible, although at other times it's prevented Star Trek from going down what might have been some truly wonderful paths (like an on-screen exploration of John M. Ford's beautifully poetic take on the Klingons, or a far less idiotic tale of Human-Vulcan first contact).

Maybe we have our wires crossed then, because I've read it twice now (once before, and again now that you've quoted it).

I don't get where it says that they've decreed that everything is now canon. I took from it that they were going to decide what was and wasn't.

Yeah to me it says, that they will remove the EU as a tier of canon and pick what they like to make canon. Everything else will be explicitly non canon going forward. Not that everything will suddenly be canon.

Nothing's definite yet. But it does seem a lot of EU will be added to what we consider to be canon.
