** The controversial AlternateContinuity[=/=]CanonDiscontinuity decision that Disney made had the perk of definitively de-canonizing several unpopular works, such as the infamous ''Literature/TheCrystalStar'', the notorious ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'' (which was '''still''' considered canon at that time in spite of [[CreatorBacklash George Lucas's hatred of it]]), and the ''[[Literature/TheGloveOfDarthVader Jedi Prince]]'' books which had Emperor Palpatine's three-eyed son Triclops and his grandson Ken the Jedi Prince.

* SturgeonsLaw: The Lucasfilm Story Group is doing their best to ensure that this ''won't'' be the case for the new Expanded Universe, making sure that the new stories are all consistently good instead of vastly varying in terms of quality. That said, it hasn't stopped some books from being less-regarded than others.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: ** In ''Comicbook/StarWarsLando'', Lobot [[spoiler:allows his cybernetic implants to "optimize" his brain so that he can reactivate a ship's escape pods, turning him into the mute and emotionless cyborg we know from the films. He leaves a pre-recorded message for Lando imploring him to end his criminal career. And the thing that plays the message is Lando saying "cure." Lobot knew that Lando would try to help him return to normal.]]

Thrawn is a Legends character for the moment, so I'm moving this to that page.
* CreatorsPet: While Thrawn is a vastly different character than either Palpatine or Vader, characters often stop in the middle of the action to compare their failings to Thrawn's greatness to the point it just seems the author wants us to know how [[MagnificentBastard magnificent]] he is.

** Other works which may be more popular but also prone to causing a BrokenBase were also de-canonized, like the stories of Karen Traviss, accused of [[CreatorsPet shilling Mandalorians]] at the expense of the Jedi, the DarkerAndEdgier novels starting with ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' where Chewbacca dies, and ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' games where the PlayerCharacter Galen Marek/Starkiller is accused of being a BlackHoleSue (whether or not he's actually a good character is up for debate, but a lot of fans agree that the character was overpowered).

*** Some fans have declared that they're TakingAThirdOption: If it's not been changed in the Disney EU, they're still believing it's canon (for example, the Old Republic Era involving Revan, until it's retconned, stays canon in the eyes of some fans).

Later on, it was announced at the [[http://www.starwars.com/news/swca-one-big-story-star-wars-canon-panel-liveblog?linkId=13622056 Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2015 canon panel]] that the Old Republic era, including ''Knights Of The Old Republic'' and ''The Old Republic'' are not canon, but there is potential to revisit the era in canon.
