L8wrtr’s Star Wars Prequels
Clone Wars
Rebels
OT Despecialized
Force Awakens Restructured
And Last Jedi

I really can’t consider Rise of Skywalker Canon right now. I just can’t. Maybe some day but not now. Sorry JJ.

Ok, so my personal canon has changed. Now it’s my own fan-edits for episodes 1-6, the Clone Wars series (except for any Jar Jar as Jar Jar has a completely new voice and personality in my TPM fan-edit), Rebels, Rogue One, and Marvel Darth Vader comics.

The sequels are not a part of my canon.

Other fan-edits include “This is Tokyo” (combination of original 1954 Gojira and the 1956 Americanization) and Heisei Godzilla Series Remaster.

And finally, proud creator of Dinosauria: Ascension, Domination, Downfall. https://dinosauriadocu.wixsite.com/dinosauriadocu

This, except that it’s Hal’s Prequels for me. TROS is an insult.

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.

Most of the time I only watch the OT, but when I want to watch more, I prefer to just watch the movies where Luke is alive:

  • Revenge of the Sith
  • A New Hope
  • The Empire Strikes Back
  • Return of the Jedi
  • The Force Awakens
  • The Last Jedi

It starts with Luke’s conception and ends with Luke’s death, and you don’t have to watch any of the worst movies in the series.

^ That’s really sensible.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

  • Star Wars
  • The Empire Strikes Back

  • The Clone Wars
  • Episodes of Rebels that reference The Clone Wars
  • Solo
  • The Battle of Scarif
  • Star Wars Revisited
  • Empire Strikes Back Revisited
  • Return of the Jedi: 4K83

That’s it. If I want the prequels, I’ll play Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga (still fun, BTW) or watch the Auralnauts versions.

With the sequels, I like to just see TLJ as the distant, possibly “elseworlds” finale. Maybe it happened, maybe it didn’t, IDK.

I can only include things I’ve actually read.

  • Darth Bane trilogy (anything prior is ancient history that is inherently dubious, and there’s a few things that dovetail real nicely with TROS, almost enough to feel like they’re good bookends)
  • Darth Plagueis
  • Master and Apprentice
  • Cloak of Deception
  • TPM
  • Rogue Planet
  • The Approaching Storm
  • AOTC
  • Misc pre-2008 Clone Wars books
  • The Clone Wars Microseries
  • Labyrinth of Evil (including any contradictions between this and the Microseries; discontinuity is good for you)
  • ROTS
  • The Han Solo Trilogy (fudging any PT continuity issues)
  • Rogue One, and it’s prequel tie-in novel
  • ANH
  • Splinter of the Mind’s Eye
  • ESB
  • Shadows of the Empire
  • ROTJ
  • Bloodlines
  • TFA
  • TLJ
  • TROS

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Having just finished re-reading Splinter, I’m going to have to strike it from my personal canon. It doesn’t fit into a post-ESB world.

I’m planning to re-read the Solo trilogy next, though, to see whether it or the film wins out.

I’m still bitter the novelization of Solo wasn’t released closer to the film’s debut, as I had hoped to read that first, able to just picture Harrison Ford in my mind’s eye and pretend it’s any old EU novel before seeing the movie.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I honestly just subscribe to the current Disney/Story Group canon. I’ve at least enjoyed, if not loved the new movies and shows and I really dig what I’ve read of the comics. I still need to explore the novels.

I actually don’t miss a whole lot of the Legends continuity. Most of what I read from it didn’t really feel like Star Wars to me.

I’ve never been into fan edits personally, especially since I adore the Prequels as they are.
