EGMR writes: "In 2012, Disney acquired LucasFilm and LucasArts, along with the Star Wars franchise and all its licensed materials. Since then, they’ve shut down LucasArts for all intents and purposes other than licensing, and declared that all material outside of the official film and televisions series (The Clone Wars and Rebels) is no longer part of the official canon of the series. This means decades of books, visual novels and video games no longer form part of the series, despite what inconsistencies it may create in the official franchise.
Whether Disney has looked at exactly what is being cut or decided to take an axe to the Extended Universe in general is unknown, but the in the build-up to the seventh film, now officially named Ep. VII: The Force Awakens, certain cuts may prove beneficial or detrimental to the saga."
