    My favorite is the sandcrawler droid with the bad motivator purposely damaging himself so Luke would take R2-D2 instead, because he was actually a Rebel droid as well and knew Princess Leia's message needed to be delivered.
    Didn't R2D2 fuck him up though? Also look how many times Leia's ship stole the blueprints for the death star and narrowly avoided darth vader in EU lore

    Well hold onto you blue milk because thats actually a mistake.

    He wasn't a rebel droid. He was a force sensitive droid, that saw a vision of the fall of the empire being caused by R2.

    I think my favorite character is Andor Solo

    Y'know, this guy? In the EU he's actually a relative of Han Solo who was part of a number of operations against the Empire. News of his death is actually part of why Han chooses to come back at the end of A New Hope and I can't fucking handle this I made all that up but googling it it turns out he is a real character named Pello Scrambas and he has a detailed backstory fuckin fuck, he can't just be an old man he has to be El Pollo Scrambles, noble warrior of the Scrambleboys faction

    Why are you defending Skippy

    It may have been non canon but there's enough people that believed that it was.

    Even the wookiepedia article is vague enough that someone stumbling on it for the first time might assume it was canon at one point. I mean, this is how they chose to lead the page:

    R5-D4, also called "Red" by Luke Skywalker, was a red and white-striped R5 astromech droid owned by a group of Jawas on Tatooine in the early days of the Galactic Civil War. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, the Jawas attempted to sell him to Owen Lars, but the droid purposely malfunctioned his motivator, so that Lars could purchased R2-D2 in R5-D4's place. The droid survived an Imperial attack on the sandcrawler soon after, and went out to find the rebellion.
    Fan wikis suck the fun out of everything. Well, except for the Transformers wiki - at least they know how to have a good laugh about their favorite franchise.

    Say what you will about Disney but starting new from the Eu was nothing but the right choice.

    Read it again:

    Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, the Jawas attempted to sell him to Owen Lars, but the droid purposely malfunctioned his motivator, so that Lars could purchased R2-D2 in R5-D4's place.
    There is no indication in the movie that the droid blowing his motivator was anything other than the result of the Jawas trying to sell a broken piece of shit to Uncle Owen. But now its apparently canon that the droid blew it purposely to aid R2-D2 in his mission.

    This is arguably worse than Skippy the Jedi Droid, because we've gone from a joke story in the old EU to actual canon. Even if it's not as ridiculous as said joke story, it's still a stupid lore addition that over-complicates a rather straghtforward movie. Just like how the new Solo movie is probably going to blow Han's little lie about the Kessel Run into a full fledged final act set-piece with tie fighters and black holes and shit.

    I just want Kyle Katarn in a new jedi knight trilogy of games. With modern tech it'd be a hell of a game, even if we can't get Luke involved like before.
    Since the Imperial Remnant is confirmed to be around and hiding it post-ROTJ could be a series of games about finding and stopping them as part of the apparently small Resistance.

    That means Kyle probably needs to die you know, since Luke is the last Jedi.

    Unless he gives up being a Jedi like in the EU. But I can't see Kylo or Snoke wanting to leave even any former Jedi alive.

    P. sure Bigger Luke was never a serious theory and only ever a joke made on absurd fan theories

    You want some stupid shit about Luke, there's always Luuke, and then, Luuuke.
    oh well, see below

    Luuuke was a Parody of Luuke IIRC. Also non-canon.

    Adam Driver is 6'2" and Mark Hamill is 5'9", yet if you watch the scene in TLJ where    Kylo confronts Luke's projection on Crait, you'll see that they made them about the same height   .

    Luke was jealous so he made himself taller clearly.
