Well, considering that the Pablo Hidalgo supplied the writers of the new Star Wars with reference material ("...In short order, I met with some of Kathleen Kennedy’s key staffers who were now aboard with Lucasfilm. I introduced myself to her expanding story development team, and offered what insight I could given my long history with Star Wars and my deep knowledge of the saga. I’ve been fortunate to become known as one of the guys who knows Star Wars inside and out within the company. As George Lucas began preparing his treatments for future films, I’d get random requests for research from his office, and helped prepare documents, primers and writer guides for the next generation of Star Wars filmmakers, whoever they may be."), I would actually beg to differ on that matter. However, it is true and confirmed that Episode 7 will not follow an existing story in the EU. Unless Episode 7 somehow happens before Jacen Solo dies, I would say this rumor is false.

Unless of course this just turns out to be the worst casting since Samuel L Jackson as Mace WIndu.
What was wrong with Mr. Jackson? He's the only Jedi that I've ever been afraid to tick off. For all his mumbo jumbo lines, he managed to bring considerable presence to his role.

But back on topic, yeah the Post-RotJ EU is going straight out the window. And good riddance! We could use some clear headed writing in the era. It started on the wrong foot with Dark Empire and went downhill from there...

I guess they are planning on putting this about 30 years after ROTJ.

So very doubtfull we will see a Boba Fett Cameo, I suppose he will stay dead this time.

nothing is wrong with Mr. Jackson when he is playing his usual characters. However Mr. Jackson should not be playing a wise, calm and collected jedi. That's a role for say Forrest Whittiiker.


Also yeah I doubt Bradly Cooper will be playing Jacen Solo or Anakin Solo.

Lucas has also stated that he was not a fan of the Post ROTJ EU. He said that is not the way he would have done it, The emperor woudln't have been cloned, Luke woudln't get married and so on. Now granted he is not writting this but he still has a say in what happens.

I think it's supposed to be 40 years so yeah boba would be 80 or 90 years old at that point. This is also the reason why the rummored Boba Fett movie takes place before ROTJ.

I agree he gets my vote, but Harrison Ford is around 32 years older then Bradely Cooper so thats about right.

Well, Mace Windu is not "calm and collected". He's focused and intense, and is quite different from the rest of the Jedi Council. If anything, he should be the ideal towards which Jedi Guardians strive.

That's a breath of fresh air for certain. The Post-RotJ stuff was really rather sloppy, it'll be good to get a reboot.

How can Bradley Cooper be considered? I thought his acting career got cut short after he contracted bipolar disorder or something.

Anyway, the right candiate for the role is Shia LeBeouf IMO. Shia is the spitting image of a young Harrison Ford and has plenty of experience with epic CGI-heavy trilogies (Transformers).

The resemblance is uncanny:

umm defenetly not. He is in an oscar nominated movie in which he HAS bipolar disorder.

His career is taking off.

Shia would be the worst choice
