With the prologue, which was told as a flashback, there is enough for Dave Filoni to quote the book as a faulty memory, and in fact the event version of the program improved things.Ruin, Filoni didn't know that he would have the opportunity to get readyClone warsThen there are some maneuvers in terms of creative decisions.

Another new one and with a lot of Retcon Mais Atroz was the survival of the emperor ofThe return of the Jedi.This is one of many JJ Abrams inSkywalkers originTogether with the true legacy of the king, the origins of the sensitivity of Snoke and Finn strength.Somehow returned [he]"Lucasfilm is still in the process of explaining this worrying return and doing it to do itEpisode VIAnd the story of Anakin Skywalker.

This now leads us to the last RETCON, as can be seen in the first episode ofThe bad lot: The death of Holy Billaba and as Caleb Dume (which some may know how Kanan Jarrus) survived order 66. The comicKananHe presented the sequence that occurs in a fire in which Caleb and his teacher advocate the surprise attack of their comrades.


Just as things happenThe bad lotIt is completely different. On the other hand, the presence of the unity of the socode is completing the sequence of its clones, including Captain Gray (whose color of the classification and armor in the comics was different) instead of killing many while defending themselvesKanan.

George Luke has certainly done his right part in the past; Luke and Leia did not intend to be brothers, or Vader was his father, and mouth came back from a certain death, but Lucas was never very concerned about the books into cancel the EU because he only saw the six films andClone warsAs official history.

Advance to the acquisition of Disney Lucasfilm, the cleaning of the black of clean continuity and the same problem remains.

Lucasfilm changes to a staggered system as a lively and lively project, it will no longer be easier, since almost a dozen programs for Disney+are in various production phases, also several films that will be published in the coming years.
