Check out, the interviewer asks "What can you tell us about the new Star Wars films?" to which Kennedy replies "Absolutely nothing." No doubt all info on Episode VII is being kept as secret as Luke Skywalker's parentage - this is a rumor, it confirms nothing.

You need to do your homework, and stop trusting wookieepedia for everything. Look up Darth Malgus on there, and you'll see what I mean. I said that the basic plot/story of Splinter was still C-Canon. Some elements are now S, but that's it. If it's recalled, then THE ENTIRE STORY must be deemed N-Canon, and that never happened with Splinter. If you have issues with that, write to Leland Chee and ask him.
The old Marvel comics are still in print... in trade paperbacks published by Dark Horse through their license with Lucasfilm. Look at the product details on the Amazon page linked in one of the previous posts.

I belive the reason the noven Crusible have been delayed is because of the movies

Story in this noven was to let the new generation take over with maybe death to the big 3 Luke, Leia,Han.
But i think alot of info and story hadd to be re written because they are making the new movies.My guess is
the novel will be change to a story were after what goes on in the novel nothing is changed and leaves things
open for the new star wars movies.

And the entirely new plot line will be exactly the same as it has been throughout the entire franchise. That's what the EU is. The same story just with slightly different names. It really goes in circles. Then add the"creativity" of Hollywood writers.

Good night.

You disgust me, the post-RoTJ EU is actually better than the movies for the most part. I suppose that's a matter of opinion, but honestly, tell me you have read some of the good EU novels/series and not liked them.

If they uncanon Thrawn, I'll uncanon myself from the title of SW-fan and make my canonized lifestory so that I have been only Timothy Zahn-fan all the time. If they do that to Drask, I might consider doing the same. If they do screw it up, I'd start to boykott Disney, but that cursed company was clever enough to put Rober Carlyle to Once Upon a Time, so I can't. Stupid Disney.

Funny how people say that there aren't much EU fans, I don't know a single sw-fan that wouldn't have read at least one comic or book from EU.

You know depending on the timeframe, they could just add in the events that happen in the newer movies, between of the time wherever the movies take place and thus keeping the EU intact.

My only hope, it shows Luke skywalker as the Grand master during the times inbetween ROTJ and The Vong era.

I really hope they don't dump on the EU of that time.

Thrawn series, X-Wing series, I Jedi, Corellia duology.

Please Disney, don't destroy it! YOU'RE OUR ONLY HOPE!!
