This will probably the end of the shared continuity, it was nice why it lasted.
I mean, major events from the Expanded Universe were contradicted by the prequel films - from the idea of the Republic not having major wars to the absence of married Jedi and so on. And then the new Clone Wars TV series also at Lucas' behest has contradicted plot elements normally considered canon.
Every time the EU has either quietly dropped the contradicting material and/or provided a rationalisation (Russan Reformation
is my preferred example). We'll see more of the same happen again.
And of course new Star Wars media will mean a new glut of EU content around that media. These movies will inevitably spawn videogames, comic books and novelizations.
