Dear Disney/Lucasfilm,
Hello, my name is [your name] and I am a huge Star Wars fan – not just a fan of the movies, but a fan of the Expanded Universe, too. [Describe how you first found Star Wars and were introduced to the EU.]
However, I was deeply saddened by the April 2014 announcement that the Expanded Universe would be discontinued and de-canonized. [Mention how the EU strengthened your love of Star Wars, how much the stories and characters meant to you.] I want to see the stories of [your favorite characters] continued.
Many fans like myself have demonstrated repeatedly that we want the EU continued by writing letters and posting on social media, as well as consistently winning fan polls, and even purchasing a billboard outside Lucasfilm HQ in San Fransico. Most recently a group of fans have formed the non-profit Twin Suns Foundation to provide a stronger voice through which fans can appeal to you.
So please, Disney/Lucasfilm, I ask that you listen to what fans like me are asking for. I ask for the Expanded Universe (now titled “Legends”) to be continued with new stories and adventures in the same continuity that we had from 1976 until 2014. I also ask that both the Legends and Canon timelines remain independent of one another with the Canon timeline no longer directly pulling characters, plots, ships, etc. from the Legends timeline. Doing so will allow both timelines to evolve in unique and interesting ways which are sure to be loved by fans and creators alike.
Thank you for your time and May the Force Be With You,
Sincerely,
[Your name]
