So, I watched TCW, read the Son of Dathomir comics, and listened to A New Dawn with the idea of seeing what the "new" canon would be. But that was only part of the reason. I also wanted to see what sort of things they would bring over from the Legends material into the new canon.

From an interview with JJM, he said that there actually was a bit of "Legends" material brought over. However, that was in the form of names of materials such as explosives and other mundane stuff like that. Ok, great. But what I'm really looking for are characters, places, events, vehicles, etc. Stuff like that. We got a little bit of that from Dave Filoni with TCW (even though some of those characters were a little bit different than the source text). I'm really hoping for more in Rebels and the next few books.

I'm wondering if anyone out there will be tracking everything that is brought over from Legends into the new canon? I think that would be an interesting list.

I'm not sure we will be seeing too many characters from the Legends continuity carry over - if they do, they will be very different. I think there's a good chance of places and vehicles crossing over - no good reason to change those.

A lot depends on the future publishing schedule. Right now, we've got the fourth quarter laid out with JJM and Luceno, first quarter next year will be Hearne and Kemp. I think the Christie will be around 3rd or 4th quarter with the Voss/Ventress novel.

With Celebration in April, we should get a batch of announcements on upcoming books. From that, we should get a good idea of what the future books are going to be like. Will they all be safe books (ie. nothing past ROTJ)? Will we see Episode VII tie-in novels? And what authors will we see? New ones? Old ones?

To me, that's going to mean a lot. I love the Legends material, but I also like the authors who wrote it just as much. As long as they're still around, I'll be around.

I would imagine pretty much all EU content other than specific plot points will be in and everything post ROTJ will be out.

For instance the West End Games and Universe guides and the Tales of Series that established back stories and names for pretty much every on screen creature, I'm sure that will be included. And all the planets and history and all that stuff.

Maybe not all the Dark Horse Sith stuff, but probably all the stuff that relates to the timelines of the movies.
