Once more, millions of fans are crying out in terror, as hundreds of books, games and movies are suddenly silenced! Yes, Disney has announced that the Star Wars Expanded Universe is no longer cannon! What does this mean? What are they thinking? Why did this happen?

RevNews host Gary Mitchel has gathered a Geek Council of Tegan Hendrickson and The Phantom Troublemaker to discuss the history of the Expanded Universe, the implications of this announcement, what they would all like to see in the future and more!


Listen in as Tegan reveals her love of the shenanigans in "The Courtship of Princess Leia"; Gary and Phantom's desire for Star Wars Land; Chewbacca as Star Wars' weird hairy uncle; Phantom's excellent points on fan fic; Which EU book is a space opera romance with Fabio; and The Dark Times of the Internet.

Our theme music this episode is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.Inc.
