Should Lucasfilm decanonize the sequels

Hey guys, you might enjoy this video by Doomcock that discusses the possibility of Disney decanonizing the Star Wars sequels through the veil of the force from Rebels season 4 episode 13 titled a World between Worlds. This has been confirmed by two sources within Lucasfilm.

Here are some summary points:

  • Lucasfilm realizes they have a major problem on their hands: that the Star Wars franchise is all but dead
  • Lucasfilm is preparing to render the sequel trilogy null and void, removed from canon and isolated into an alternate timeline, under the label of Star Wars Legends
  • Palpatine had a room on the 2nd Death Star called the room of mirrors, the mirrors created prior to the death star through the dark side using ancient rituals.
  • These mirrors, linked to the veil of the force, allowed Palpatine to manipulate the force (ex: cloud the Jedi counsel, conceal himself from the jedi, to increase his power)
  • As palpatine fell through the shaft of the Death Star, in desperation, he opened a portal to the veil of the force. In RoS, we see that he is in poor physical shape, it would be due to this travel without the aid of the mirrors
  • A room of mirrors was waiting in Exegol, to which Palpatine transported, to scheme the rise of the new Empire.
  • To delete the Kennedyverse, Lucasfilm would have force-sensitives or Jedis prevent Palpatine's transportation to the room of mirrors in Exegol.
  • The proof would be hidden within the RoS, where Ray meets her dark twin within the ruins of the Death Star.
  • Perhaps too little, too late, because the originals (Luke, Han, Leia) were never banded together one last time, Luke turned into a monster looking to murder his nephew, or sucked on a space manatee, Yoda destroyed the Jedi temple, Ray was a Mary Sue, and fans were treated as -ists and -phobes. To win the culture war, fans would accept the surrender by Disney.

Whether or not Disney Lucasfilm says they are canon... Anything that was done after George Lucas in my mind is not canon. Just expensive fan fiction. I will say though, the Mandalorian is good!


I would love to see them decanonized. The sequel trilogy was quite poor, especially episode 8, which was an absolute cinematic abortion. I highly doubt decanonization will happen though, it seems like Disney is largely moving on and are unconcerned with what people think of the sequel trilogy since it is done now. The Mandalorian and Clone Wars season 7 were much better received by OT and PT fans than the ST was, proving to Disney that the IP can recover from the damage the ST did without needing to decanonize it. Rumor is Disney wants to explore other time period now, including the Old Republic and High Republic eras, and give the timeline of the 3 movie trilogies a rest, except for the 3 tv series (Mandalorian, Cassian Andor, and Obi-Wan) and video games (Jedi Fallen Order 2 and the new Starfighter game).

Waste of time. Even if they did, the prequels still exist, which for me is the worst of the three trilogies anyway. If they want to start decanonizing stuff, then take out everything except the first three films and maybe couple of the video games and TV series if you really want to just include the good stuff.

To late, they were already released and they are bad.

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Couldn’t care less if they are canon or not, honestly. Star Wars needs a fresh start with new characters. Revisiting the sequels isn’t going to make them better, they just need a new story all together in the Star Wars universe. I really liked the idea of an old republic trilogy. They should increase the number of force users and turn the battles up.

Not a Star Wars fan but everything after the original 3 films was a mistake. Disney will dip in the well of a creatively bankrupt franchise forever.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

I agree with this. Star Wars was what George Lucas made. 1 - 6 are all the real deal from the creator of that world. Anything not made by George is fan fiction based on his world. 

That is not to say that great new Star Wars films can not be made. In fact I expect to see incredible things done with the Star Wars franchise in the future. None of it will be canon to George's Original Creations in 1 - 6 though.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Forget og Star wars, forget prequels and sequels! we need movies set at the old Sith Empire, the dark days, the time when sith lords were true gods who terrified the galaxy without ever needing "Death Stars and Chimichangas"! The future of star wars is in the past and ancient lore.

Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.
