Way back in April of 2014, I uploaded a blog titled, A Sad Time In A Galaxy Far Far Away… in which I discussed my feelings toward Lucasfilm changing all extended universe stories to non-canon/legacy status.

I’ve left a link above so you can go back and read it, but needless to say, I wasn’t impressed.
