    I just got an email from BBTS on this, saying next month. I want to believe, I really do. But reading this thread (and the $76 non refundable down) makes me say hey, let November arrive and see if it really is available. But I dream...that I could actually get this for a Christmas gift.

    ever since 1978 there was always a difference between "Lucas Star Wars", and the stuff that was written by other people. we used to call it "EU".

    but now EVERYTHING is "written by other people".... so by definition, now EVERYTHING is "EU".... but somehow, we've ALL been brainwashed, into NOT calling it by that name. (heaven forbid).



    I think the sooner we can all recognize that this is "all EU now", then the sooner we can all just enjoy it for what it is.

    I enjoyed the Thrawn books in the 1990's; I enjoyed the Brian Daley books in the 1980's; I enjoyed Splinter of the Mind's Eye in 1978; (etc).

    if we can accept these movies in that exact same context, then this would make it MUCH easier to enjoy Disney's NuSW for what it is.



    but unfortunately, Disney's Orwellian Doublethink has taught us, "it's all canon now".

    and this has caused a sort of 'organ rejection' among the fandom (like a human body "rejecting" a new heart transplant).

    in the entire 40-year history of Star Wars, there have ALWAYS been "stories by George" (aka canon) vs. "stories by [NOT George]" (aka EU), and the fandom enjoyed BOTH.

    but now we are told "everything is canon", and this places a HUGE amount of scrutiny on the NuSW. this makes it impossible to enjoy NuSW, at all.



    IMO it was a mistake for Disney to declare the NuSW to be a continuation of "Stories By George" (when George is NO LONGER writing stories LOL). it's absurd.

    this Orwellian Doublethink is not sustainable, in the long term -- it was only a matter of time before the fandom figured it out -- this stuff is NOT "Stories By George" LOL

    if Disney would have sold their NuSW, in the same context as the Thrawn novels, then we WOULD allow ourselves to ENJOY it...

    ....but instead they sold it as the direct continuation of "Lucas Star Wars" -- this was a HUGE mistake.




    ie: you are correct. this is NOT "Lucas Star Wars".

    it's ALL "EU" NOW... and there's NOTHING wrong with that. LOL

    for 40 years, the definition of "EU" remained the same -- "Stories by [NOT George]" have ALWAYS been labelled "EU".

    we need to acknowledge this Disney stuff IS, by definition, "EU"

    (this makes it MUCH easier, to enjoy it for what it is).

    cheers!
    This is a well written point, and I agree with it. EU was just that, be it the original Marvel Comics, Splinter of the Minds Eye, Dark Horse, Thrawn Novels, etc. And yes, in that context it was all very enjoyable, or you could pick and choose what you liked and what you did not care for and that was fine. By putting it all under the "this is cannon now" umbrella they ruined SW for me personally. I am fine with people who like the new stuff, I just do not. And for many of the reasons you pointed out.

    With BBTS carrying these, there's really no reason to PO unless you just wanna give them money to hold. Most would say there never was a reason before
