Less than 1%? How do you know that? I swear, the numbers people throw around.
no they won't They didn't up and leave when lucas made the prequels and dumped all the EU stuff. They are not going to leave now. Especially if the new stuff turns out to be good.
Remember less then 1% of the total Star Wars fans have ever read a Star Wars book.
Lucas never dumped all the Eu stuff. Older comics and a few other things. But the EU from the 90's on is still intact and will remain so. I also stand by what I said about Disney losing money of they ditch the EU. They would be stupid to do so.
