** A faithful adaptation of the ''Literature/XWingSeries'' (as in something similar to how ''[[Literature/StarWarsThrawn Thrawn]]'' was an adaptation of sorts to ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'') as of ''Literature/AftermathEmpiresEnd'' is near impossible, as Wedge never makes any [[SequelHook nods]] to events from his early piloting career [[FridgeLogic that you'd think would be mentioned as relevant to Phantom Squadron if it did happen]]. In addition, at the end of ''Empire's End'', Wedge decides to become a piloting teacher rather than continue being a pilot, meaning Phantom Squadron can't channel Wraith Squadron.

* ArchivePanic: Averted if you're going by Disney's new Expanded Universe instead of the positively colossal Legends one. You shouldn't have too much of a problem keeping up with all the new material... for now, that is.

* {{Misblamed}}: Given Creator/JJAbrams' reboot of ''Franchise/StarTrek'', don't be surprised if you see fans accusing J.J. of wiping out the ''Star Wars'' EU canon. Also, don't be surprised if you see people blaming Creator/GeorgeLucas for Disney's decision, because... well, [[ScapegoatCreator he's George Lucas]]. Admittedly, the policy does largely follow what was George's own position towards the former EU back when he was in charge, but that was always his position and never pretended otherwise.

Admittedly, the policy does largely follow what was George's own position towards the former EU back when he was in charge, but that was always his position and never pretended otherwise. As for Disney, they did not make the choice to wipe the EU and they're smart enough to let Lucasfilm handle the reins, so ExecutiveMeddling by Disney very rarely happens to the new ''Star Wars'' stories. The EU wipe was decided by Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm.

** In ''ComicBook/{{Chewbacca}}'', the titular Wookiee gives Zarro his medal he got for being a hero of the Rebellion -- the same infamous medal that we never got to see him receive in the end of ''Film/ANewHope''.

** In ''ComicBook/{{Chewbacca}}'', the titular Wookiee gives Zarro his medal he got for being a hero of the Rebellion -- the same infamous medal that we never got to see him receive in the end of ''Film/ANewHope''. Zarro asks him if he's sure, to which he replies that he has his bandolier, which is good enough for him and she immediately understands. The epilogue reveals that Zarro had realized that Chewie had a small bandolier in the box he had the whole time, and it turns out that it's a gift for his son, Waroo/Lumpy.

** At the end of ''[[Literature/StarWarsThrawn Thrawn]]'', the titular character leaves behind his personal journal entries for his former aide [[spoiler:who is leaving for the Chiss Ascendancy]] Eli to see, with the closing words affirming that he is grateful for Eli and their friendship throughout the years. Eli reciprocates. It's a far cry from back in the beginning of the book, where Eli [[IJustWantToBeNormal wanted little to do with Thrawn]] and Thrawn claimed the only reason why he's keeping the young man close to him is as a tool.

** There are rumors going around of another animated series directed by Filoni either succeeding after or being released alongside ''Rebels''. While anything from the Old Republic era as popularly demanded (specifically a canon adaptation of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'') are currently off limits so that Bioware still has time to end its ''Legends'' story in ''The Old Republic'', the other guess is that it will fill in the gap between ''Return of the Jedi'' and ''The Force Awakens''.
*** Voice actor Stephen Stanton revealed in a podcast interview that his voice for AP-5 was being reused for ''another'' Lucasfilm animated series... huh?

Also, don't be surprised if you see people blaming Creator/GeorgeLucas Creator/{{Twitter}} page had started following Creator/RosarioDawson and Creator/DwayneJohnson, with a popular rumor having gone around for Disney's decision, because... well, [[ScapegoatCreator he's George Lucas]]. Admittedly, the policy does largely follow what was George's own position towards the former EU back when he was in charge, but a while that was always his position Dawson would play Ahsoka in a live-action role. Dawson and never pretended otherwise.Creator/DaveFiloni started following each other on Twitter at the same time, too, and considering Filoni mostly just follows ice hockey teams and co-workers, it's rather suspect.
