If anyone has a translation of Story Before The Force Awakens it would be greatly appreciated

So are we going to consider Star Wars: Battle Pod canon here?

Wookiepedia doesn't seem to consider it canon.

I added a bit about the Journey to The Force Awakens books being unclear in timeline placement due to the fact while they clearly all take place post-Jedi, we have no idea which order they are to occur in yet. I left Aftermath as we already have a plot summery placing it very shortly after Ep VI

As much as I'd like them to be, I don't think we can consider the Star Wars Blog Posts canon. The blogs seem to be a mix of Canon, Legends, and real life behind-the-scenes info. In some (but not all) of the blogs the author makes sure to clarify that certain events happen "in Legends", and for the Phlemgmpire entry says the information is from "Legends stories and within canon".

Also the information in the blogs is sometimes different from the Databank entries. For example the blog on rebel leaders restates the Legends info that General Dodona is a Clone Wars veteran from Commenor, but his Databank entry just says he's a "veteran officer."

Finally, if we go by Wookiepedia's canon guidelines, it says they accept starwars.com Databank and Encyclopedia entries, but says nothing about blogs.

I agree. They're too much of a grey area. I think they're less a statement of "what is" and more a collection of information from older sources both Canon and Legends, designed for more casual readers who don't really care about the C/L split.

The blogs by Tim Veekhoven are definitely being presented as canon: they've been clearly written to discern between canon and Legends info and what is being brought from the latter back into canon (the Tuskin Raider one being the best example). Wookiepedia has even been treating them as such (look at Yaddle or Oppo Rancisis' canon pages).

Some of the others are iffy or 100% not total canon, like the Phlemgmpire one, which should be removed from the list.

Does anyone know what the canon policy is now for deleted scenes? I think before they were considered canon, so long as they didn't conflict with the final cut.

doesn't look like there's an official policy yet.

So I think we need to clarify what the purpose of this page is. Is the page for listing Disney era official Star Wars media, or is this page focused on the canon universe created by Disney. I ask because things like Epic Yarns and The Yoda Chronicles are part of the Disney Star Wars Franchise but NOT the Disney Star Wars Universe. I hope I'm being clear enough in my questions.

Since I don't wanna remove stuff without a decision being made I'll just add Non-Canon notes to any applicable media

Is there any source for Star Tours being canon? If not it doesn't belong here

Wikipedia's navbox lists it among "Legends". So I think yes.

So should we start renaming this to Star Wars Legends?

All of the old EU is now labeled Legends by Disney to differentiate it from the new EU which is considered in canon with the films. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Canon

How about Brian Daley's novels chronicling Han Solo's adventures in the Corporate Sector?

While the points listed aren't bad ones the tone is very one sided. Is it honestly only "Pro-Canon EU fans [that] can be overzealous sometimes"?
