Everyone here wants to wipe out the New Jedi Order! I've walked into a room full of Sith! *turns on lightsabers*.

Anyway, I happen to enjoy NJO. I personally hope that Disney doesn't overwrite it.

The movies were mythical fantasy and mythology with science fiction veneer. The EU is mostly just science fiction that makes me feel like I'm watching Star Gate with Star Wars characters and outfits.

I hope the new movies are mythological sagas, with the focus on destiny and archetypal good vs evil and the exploration of the grey between those two.

I hope there are echos of the Ghosts of Mortis Clone Wars story arc as well.
Umm, that's EXACTLY where the novels are right now. The past 9 book cycle was exactly what you are looking for and the next main novel in the timeline is called Crucible and is looking for the Mortis/Crucible world from the Clone Wars tv show.

There's no need to, and in fact it would be quite odd if they did. The timeline of the novels has progressed 44 years after the Battle of Yavin. The actors have aged about 35 years since that time. So, that's nearly perfect for the amount you would want them to age on screen, given that Star Wars humans especially Jedi have slightly longer lifespans.

I do like Ben Skywalker but iIalso liked Anakin Solo and his death really touched me. It would be sad to see him never exist. I really could do without the Vong though. Oh and I am all for bringing Chewbacca back.
I wonder if the Indiana Jones movies were Han Solos dreams while he was frozen in carbonite?

Benny I think you put that in the wrong thread :P

i could be totally wrong here but doesnt the force help keep them looking young at least, in terms of Luke and Leia.

and furthermore, have you seen the actors since the movies. all the booze, fatty foods and blow have caught up to them. Only Ford looks any good. Im not sure they could pull off whats needed for these movies in the roles they are supposed to cover.
