i actually kind of like them doing it this way.
it doesnt interfere with live action canon like the shitty sequels did.
Disney were going to go full Young Adult Novel
with Star wars when they bought it, because they already had the teenage boy demo locked with Marvel, little girl demo locked with the princess movies, little boy demo locked with disney xd, they needed the teenage girl Young Adult Novel demo, they wanted to turn it into Twilight and Hunger Games, and thats what they did. But because everyone hated that choice in live action, they've moved it straight in the Young Adult Novel realm.
And the old Star Wars realm has returned to live action.
