How the EU fairs is a fascinating question. I'm just now reading the Thrawn Trilogy in comics book form and thinking what a great movie it'd make, but given the ages of the principle actors for the original trilogy, that probably won't work. Plus I understand Harrison Ford has written off the idea of ever reprising Han Solo. I personally was never into the whole Yuzhang Vong business or what have you.
On the other hand, the Clone Wars cartoons have been vacuum packed liquid awesome (IMHO) so there's certainly potential for Disney to do it right. I, for one, enjoyed what they did with Tron Legacy.
Though it'll be weird seeing a Star Wars
movie start out with Cinderella's Castle instead of the 20th Century Fox searchlights....
