The last few days have seen an influx of Star Wars stories including one we reported on yesterday on The Clone Wars finale coming in the form of a Darth Maul comic. Well Jimmy Mac over at RebelForce Radio has put the record straight and boy did it need putting straight!
Man, over the past few days, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a bigger surge of Star Wars misinformation happening. For starters, the Darth Maul comic coming from Dark Horse Comics, while based on a script from Lucasfilm Animation, IS NOT, and was never the intended finale for the series…The Star Wars canon stuff is totally being reported inaccurately across the web – The statement that all Star Wars stories will fall under one canon DOES NOT MEAN that all previous EU stories will be included. They can be used, yes, MOVING FORWARD. So essentially, it’s business as usual in that dept…AND…During a AMC Movie Talk marathon, Jon Schnepp, a director on Metalocalypse, NEVER said the Boba Fett film would be the “FIRST” spinoff. He just said he heard it was ONE of the spinoffs coming, not necessarily the “FIRST”. The internet echo chamber is once again working it’s magic. What’s next? Someone will report they actually found new Hasbro Star Wars Action Figures available at retail? – JMac
