Anyone else looking forward to the new season of Freemakers this summer?

Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is a Lego animated TV show. I saw a bit of it once when my siblings were watching it.

The Last Jedi trailer wasn't very good. Didn't really hype me up for the movie at all. But at least they're doing the "Jedi and Sith are archaic concepts anyone should use any power" thing.

Most of the EU after a point (Vector Prime) was awful, though. And after the Vong arc ended, it somehow got even worse. The ability of just about anybody to get their silly idea made canon, as in Force Unleashed, were the last nails in the coffin. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the older works (the Thrawn trilogy) as much as anybody, but on the whole I think the EU universe was a disaster.

That's not to say that the new trilogy is the answer to that problem, but it couldn't mess it up much worse than it was.

Honestly, at the end of the day I expect I'll pick and choose my personal SW canon, and throw out the rest.

I've got my own ideas and whatnot on the series, so I just think stuff is canon when it's not and kinda ignore a lot of "canon" stuff.
