Give Us Legends.Three words forming what might seem to be a very selfish and self important message.
But what really hides in those words? If one were to ask any one of the individuals who have been using the hashtag #GiveUsLegends on social media since April 25th, 2014 there is little doubt one would find the answers varied quite a bit.
However, there is also little doubt that you would find that they all had one thing in common and that is a deep love and appreciation for the novels, comics, video games and everything else that makes up the Star Wars Expanded Universe.
Most also wish to speak with the employees at Lucasfilm and Disney in a desperate hope to see the Star Wars the world has known for nearly 40 years given a chance to continue.
The Expanded Universe Billboard Project, put together by some of the more outspoken members of the Star Wars fan community, has been done with nothing but love for what is now known as the Legends Universe. It is an entirely fan funded and created effort to speak directly to those who have the power to do what we, the fans and consumers, want. It is for this reason that we have pooled our resources, both financial and creative, to bring Lucasfilm this message of passion and appreciation.
The fans wish to see the Legends timeline continued.
While there may be some debate about the status of canon and what many want to happen there specifically, one thing is agreed upon. The Star Wars Legends timeline can be continued alongside Disney's canon as a separate universe. Acting on this idea would be a nearly universal win with the Star Wars fandom as all fans, new and old, would again have new adventures to look forward to in a galaxy far, far away...
