My understanding was that Lucas did have quite a say in what happened in the EU, and it was he that decided to kill off Anakin, so my money is that while things in the EU didn't go quite the way he would have done it, the general direction of EU is "correct".

Anyways, my expectation is that the new trilogy will be after the current books, i.e. ~40 years after Return.

So no Vong, No Mara, No Jacen. Main characters probably Jaina, possibly Ben, Possibly Allana. (think that's Jacen's daughters name?)

I still maintain that Disney will not constrain themselves with the EU. The Marvel Universe stuff will be a template. Episode 7 will probably be completely original.

NOOOOoooooOOOOOOO- Darth Vader

The Yuuzhan Vong are so lame. Most of the stuff in the EU is lame. We need something new and exciting.

OK THIS IS A SERIOUS OFFENCE QUOTED ABOVE, THRAWN IS THE DEFENITION OF EPIC. However i agree that the Vong invasion would also be (almost) as epic as a Blue skinned art lover who kicks the galactic power in the face (metaphor for those who are looking for something to troll about). "Nuff said"

Lucas Ignored the EU in the PT so why he shouldn't do it in a ST ?
Also they will never use the EU as base for a new Movie. there are to much things for someone, who never read 1 book from the EU. There are so much things, which a newbi wouldn't understand, like what to hell is a Vong, why there is a good empire, why is there everything so completly differed?

The easiest thing for a newbi would be in the time betwen OT and ST is nothing realy importend happend. There is a new Republic and all was happy until whatever hapen what ever happen in the new Trillogie.


There arent enough people that you can make 3 big movie only for ppl who had rad all books.

The Vong should never have been approved as canon for the EU to begin with.
