What is Star Wars Legends? Simply put, it's all the comics and books that were once known as the Expanded Universe. All of those various books and comics that followed smaller characters, connected histories and planets and spawned geek debate the world over are no longer considered canon (with the exception of a few things). Instead, they now exist as Legends and have no bearing on the new movie.

Like a branch of reality has just been cut off from the main tree.
