They have to be though, right? I mean with the Rebels references in Rogue One and Solo. I don't know if they sit around a table and discuss it, but I'm certain that Lucasfilm has people that check and veto things that violate canon ... or at least require an explanation be given.

The way I see it, there's including easter eggs for fans, and then there's letting the plot of a cartoon with a substantially smaller viewer base than the live-action films stand in the way of their new ideas for where to take the story. I really believe that the moment it comes to that point, they'll just change what's canon again. And I have a feeling this will be tested in the next couple of movies.

Has he never heard of the story group and that the directors and writers collaborate with them?

I wouldn't call Maul an Easter egg. And casual fans probably all thought, "wait that guy died". But he was alive and well in both animated series. I think that is some pretty serious collaboration within the Canon

Maul is a character from a live-action movie, though. I mean, I don't watch the cartoons, and his appearance didn't break my brain like "BUT WAIT I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD?!?!?". I just thought "huh, they're bringing him back, cool".

I've seen so many people thinking that Solo takes place before Phantom Menace. I'm like... how fucking old do you think Han is?!

Right, but they brought him back in the animated series. They chose to continue a storyline that was a huge part of both of the animated series in the Solo movie

Goodness. ROTJ keeps slipping int he rankings for me. As a child it may have been my favorite of the OT but every time I have put it on in the past couple of years I find myself shaking my head and bored.

There still is no better climax than the full on Vader/Luke dual, and seeing Luke as a jedi saving Han is great but everything else leaves me rather empty.

I unironically adore the Ewok movies. They’re just great ‘80s fantasy and I think they have a beautiful thematic core. This isn’t news.
