The 'Lighter' Side Of The Force
All makes sense except that it depends on a certain point of view. A lot of the EU has been ignored or altered especially with the new movie. Too bad. But I appreciate that you tackled it using pretty much everything.
Well the new movie does not follow EU or canon
By definition the movies are canon. The EU has been removed and that's it. THe movie does show things that were not part of the original EU, but that does not mean the movie is any less canon, or that it does not follow canon. It simply IS canon.
