Re: disney, and the star wars eu

I love the original trilogy. I love the prequel trilogy. But to me, the EU is Star Wars, which is why the announcement of a sequel trilogy which would beyond a doubt destroy the EU has saddened me ever since it was announced. And it's become even worse with Disney's making clear that they no longer want to publish the rich tapestry of interesting stories featuring original characters in different eras, and instead want to focus only on tie-ins to whatever will be in theaters next. And so, I've recently come to the decision that I'll be treating Star Wars as having two separate continuities (not parallel universes, completely separate continuities). The first will include everything that has been published up until the Mouse destroys everything, and the second will be nothing but the movies. I will be ignoring the "New Fift-EU" that Disney will inevitably create.
