I hate when people try to tell others what Star Wars is or isn’t supposed to be, or more importantly what you should or shouldn’t be a fan of to be some sort of elite Star Wars purist. Books, comics and toys have been a part of Star Wars since the very beginning with animated series and video games not far behind. Theme park rides came only a few years later. Everyone has different tastes, and you’re no less a fan if you don’t enjoy all of these things, but in the same manner you’re no less a fan if you do. It’s all Star Wars.

I fully agree with you.
In my life i have learned to take things as they are given to me. And Star Wars has so many facets, each of which has its own charm.

For years fans of the original cuts of the the Trilogy were told we were lesser fans of Star Wars for not accepting or wanting the Special Editions. Or for not liking the Prequels because they contradicted the Original Trilogy.

Now some super fans try to make others feel lesser because they like the Sequels or the newer book and comics. As if attacking others makes them better Star Wars fans, or their views and favourite Star Wars content is better for doing so.
