Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe
And for what it's worth, I can't see the new continuity taking in another civil war, the Vong or much of anything except maybe a few characters and very general ideas such as Mara Jade and her being 'The Emperors Hand'.
A pro screenwriter just wouldn't bother reading the EU, wouldn't want to be constrained by it and would have some pretty specific story instructions from Disney to boot.
I agree. If we see any stuff taken from the EU, I have a feeling it would probably be done in a manner similar to CW, taking some of the names and basic concepts, but then putting their own spin on it.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
