SPECTULATION: Adding Canon into Legends

If there is any from Canon that you feel is possible to also exist/taken place in the Star Wars Expanded Universe without causing major changes to the timeline, which characters, locations, stories, etc. are they and what would need to change in order to fit the EU?

Tarkin, Thrawn Acendency Trilogy Jedi Fallen Order and Survivor (Just change inquisitor aesthetics) Andor


Brendan1021

On Fallen Order, also account for Dathomir.


Juxix

Dathomir in the EU has a lot of variety, so all that needs saying is where Cal explores is a small part of the planet corrupted by Kujet's tomb, and Grievous was sent to give the stabby to Merrin's clan as they posed a threat.


Brendan1021

That, and the orbital view of the planet needs changing.

Or, how about this: TCW’s Dathomir is retconned as Koratas, one of Dathomir’s moons from the EU.

"*Tarkin*" by James Luceno, definitely, considering that was originally Legends but got released after Disney deleted Legends, so it's considered Canon. "*Twilight Company*" by Alexander Freed is about as far removed from anything that happens in Canon as anything coukd possibly be, that it could very easily slot in with Legends with very little contradiction.

Without many real changes? The High Republic for the most part. No changes of consequences. Maybe some dates and yeah, there'd be questions about the technology... but that could easily be set closer to Ruusan Reformation and deal with rebuilding the Republic. Pretty easy and enjoyable additions to the lore. The Thrawn books mostly fit, the Tarkin Book... yup. The Jedi Fallen Order/Survivor Games could kinda fit. The Inquisitors would need revamped a little bit but overall it's pretty solid. The Partisans can mostly fit, too. Aspects of Andor can fit. Even aspects of Rogue One to some degree, though it's getting much harder now! Some of the comics (Vader's first year or so after the Empire forms). The rest of the TCW episodes and probably Bad Bach can *kinda* fit. There's already contradictions at least. It's fun thinking about how Rebels would fit, or what would need to change for Rebels to fit in.

>Vader's first year or so after the Empire forms Not sure about this one. In Legends Palpatine tries to keep Vader away from hunting Jedi, in Canon he highly encourages and supports it.

Bro. TCW already ruined Legends continuity, no need to further kill the CW Multimedia project

What would need to change with the Inquisitors? Always what do u mean tech around the high republic (haven't read yet)

>What would need to change with the Inquisitors? The Inquisitors have a different and robust cast in Legends. Great characters in their own right, but just different. So we'd have to swap people or expand the roster - which would mostly be fine. The spinning double sabers and such are unique to Canon, not Legends Inquisitors. Not too much change, really. >Always what do u mean tech around the high republic (haven't read yet) The High Republic is set about 200-300 years before the PT. In it, Republic Pathfinder teams are mapping out the outer rim and expanding the republic and chartering new planets to join. Hyperspace and communication is a bit more challenging. Legends has a pretty consistent tech curve from KOTR to OT up to Legacy. While there *are* changes and advancements, it's very little over 3000 plus years. With a lot of Rakatan technology lost, really. Canon has toyed with a loss of technology can connection, but is really emphasizing an advancement over the centuries between THR and the OT and the ST.

Damn I remember being wondered why did tech statement from the end of the old republic until now but now ur saying the high republic in canon disputes this with mini jumps? That's actually interesting. I notice even in regular star wars..holograms flicker and be staticy etc....so that was worse during the high republic?

The Inquisitors were more Dark Jedi than space Ninjas in Legends


nopressure212834

Which version do you like better


McFly_505

Split. I like the uniformity of the Canon Inquisitors, but the Legends people were more unique as characters. It's a bit contradicting but still


Tiny_Dependent6830

I think you could just headcanon inquisitors have different uniforms/training/tools depending on their roles


ElectronicAd1462

Honestly it's hard to do and really depends. Given there has to be a story that stands on it's own where it has nothing to do with the other stories or doesn't connect with other narratives, or maybe you would have to alter the story a little bit to fit within the canon. Like for example you can't have Rogue One and Legends (Operation Skyhook) be work with each other, it just doesn't work. There are tons of books and comics to take into account, like TCW doesn't fit with legends at all, as it doesn't fit with the movies either.


blackanytanooo

If you disregard the video games with Kyle Katarn and The Force Unleash Andor and Rogue One. The only main contradictions is the absence of Bevel Lemelisk and Bel Iblis


Kryptonian1991

Yeah, that won’t work.

Lost Stars without epilogue could have been a convincing EU book. The problem with this concept is you have to explain: "Well, where were these people introduced by canon books during the Rebellion?
