"In short, any book, comic, or videogame set post-Return Of The Jedi would now be released under the ‘Legends’ banner."

Is this the official word regarding the EU? I keep seeing articles pop up saying that ALL stuff that's not even post-Return is now non-canon.

The only properties that will be considered cannon (as far as the new films are concerned) is the new Rebels TV show and the films. That's the way it should be - the films should always take precedence imo.
