Honestly, the EU needed a big ret-con anyway. It has run well off the tracks. They keep trying to create more and more ridiculously overpowered characters. I'm glad that stuff is about to get thrown out.
WHAT!?

You can't be serious. Jacen and Jaina solo are some the EU's best characters, Jacen especially. Darth Caedus is big time my favorit sith, and there is no way that Disney can do any better with them.

The EU is full of overpowered characters? Not really. Yes there is a few that could use a rework like the Dark Empire story, but otherwise the EU is perfect as it is, and need NO "ret-con" at all!

They needed a common enemy to unite the Republic and the Empire.
The problem I had with it was, the Empire and the Republic would never unify. The Empire would try to use the "new threat" to their advantage to destroy the Jedi, then go on the offensive. The whole thing was a cluster of wrong, but that is in my own opinion and I am happy that people do love the content. It keeps the Star Wars universe alive, but something original and disconnected from what's already created would be far better. A fresh start with original characters in an era where all of that is beautiful referenced (as an honoring nod to the fans and creators) would be more fulfilling, to me at least.

The Skywalker saga ended with the death of vader, lets leave that tragedy where it was and not "beat the dead horse" with clones and mutilated aliens.

Respectfully disagree. All the re-born Sidious stuff was nonsense. They had to make villains resistant to the Force because they made dozens of Jedi who were more powerful than anyone in the prequels. They added a ton of force powers that bordered on the ridiculous. Superweapons that tried to one-up the Death Star. There was a lot of terrible writing in the books.

I will agree that Darth Caedus was a great character. I've actually suggested they take the Jacen/Jaina and Darth Caedus storyline, make a few necessary changes and make it into the next trilogy. I don't see that happening. I think they will go with something original.

The Vong were simply awful, cheap and tacky. They're clearly something created by someone who only asked themselves one question; how can I just out-****** everything that's ever been seen to the point of absurdity.

Extra-Galactic aliens that just ignore the Force which is supposed to be an intregal part of EXISTENCE and hop around in world ships. That's even cheaper and tackier than the Borg.

This way we get Han Solo, Luke and Leia, able to play their aged selves plus their kids as teenagers.
no you see they aren't doing ANYTHING from existing story lines. So that means odds are the Vong war never happened.
