Hi,
i’ve read that some elements from the EU (Legends) was added into the movies.
Like the Outrider from Shadows of the Empire was added in the Special-Edition of ANH and Coruscant was added from the Thrawn trilogy into the Special-Edition of ROTJ.
So is there a list, or someone can give me more details?

Technically, Coruscant was added from the then upcoming Prequels into the OT. It’s only the name Coruscant that comes from the Thrawn Trilogy.

On the one hand, it was never depicted before the Thrawn Trilogy. On the other hand, the idea of a city-planet, I think, goes back to the early drafts (and Trantor in Asimov’s books).

I was happy to see the Maw in Solo.

Emperor: It’s not the east or the west side.
Darth Vader: No It’s not.
Emperor: It’s not the north or the south side.
Darth Vader: Not It’s not.
Emperor: It’s the dark side!
Darth Vader: You are correct!!
