Bart's right - TCW and the movies aren't Legends.

Legends is not simply the state of the Star Wars universe before the Disney takeover. It's apart of the Disney takeover.

Legends is as the name suggests: legends. They're stories that may have happened but are not verifiably true.

TCW and movies, however, factually happened and future stories are beholden to them, therefore making them Canon.

"Canon" is not a unique continuity. It's merely a term used to recognize verifiably true information.

You can't be both Legends and Canon at the same time.

Zenwolf is online now!

I see TCW overall as just Canon with Legends elements sprinkled into it, makes more sense that way instead of seeing it as both.

thumb up

The only way the events of the films and series are in the Legends continuity are through Legends material: ex. the ROTS novel or how Shadow Conspiracy is a Legends book that adapts canon TCW episodes.

TCW is not Legends. It's events still happened in Legends is the point, which is obviously how thinks like its books and games can exist.

If TCW was part of legends, it would downplay the **** out of the Jedi.
AKA Mace would of died to an explosion, that a pre levithan Revan, casually tanked.
