So... Han Solo Wannabe: The Series? Following FAKE Han Solo: The Movie, that failed? Seems like a very ill-advised choice.

FYI, without that video link there, I would have had no idea "Cassian Andor" was a character in Rogue One.

Yep.

Only good thing about this being a thing is they can work to retroactively make Rogue One a more interesting story.

Dignity. Among some of those entries. But that looks about right. And I don't remember anyone saying the 2 Ewok movies (which would be after RotJ) don't count. The 2nd one actually had balls. And given Lucas' involvement, the general "Shadows of the Empire" probably ought to still stand, too, right between TESB and RotJ.

Yeah the Trilogy that Rian Johnson is working on. I don't know where it'll fit in with those. Since this new Trilogy won't have anything to do with the Skywalkers. And be set in some other part of the galaxy. And there is also the movies that the creators of Game of Thrones will be working on as well.

Well the Ewok movies are no longer in continuity but before Disney Star Wars they were meant to take place before ROTJ officially but it creates a continuity problem since Widget learns English which he doesn't know in ROTJ. The fix is that he didn't actually learn English but another language which was just English for the audience. The ewok cartoon actually leads into ROTJ since one of the episodes has the empire finding the moon of Endor.

According to who? Disney said the EU was torn down. The Ewoks movies weren't EU.

Who the hell asked for more Cassian? Along with the rest of the RO characters, he was introduced entirely for the purpose of dying. And it's not even like with Obi-Wan who was an old man with an established past of being an overall badass and continued to have a role as a ghost, Cassian is just some Rebel assassin who could really only have operated for like 5 years.

Lucasfilm specifically mentioned that only the 6 films and Clone Wars were canon going forward. Yes, Shadows of the Empire as well.

They're stupid. Nobody should listen to them.

A Star Wars Universe where Shadows and KOTOR aren't canon, but TLJ is, is the absolute ass of all possible Star Wars Universes.

...AND WHAT ABOUT "DROIDS"?!?! Those idiots have no idea what's important.

That character doesn't really need a series of his own.
