I think that Disney is slowing doing away with the EU.
Disney put 1313 on hold so it would fit into movie canon.
Disney put a hold on upcoming novels.
Disney is forming a group to go through the EU and decide what fits into movie canon and what dosen't
Now Disney will not allow Hasbro to make EU characters.
I see a united continuity in the SW Universe. By just having movie canon and not having an EU.
