Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

It's, of course, anybody's guess about what they will do at this point but I really hope that, like with the Clone Wars, some elements of the EU find their way in. If nothing else, I'd like to see Mara and the Solo/Skywalker children (i.e. Jaina, Jacen, Ben). Including Lumiya as a Sith antagonist would be icing on the cake IMHO. From what I've read so far, it sounds like they're hinting at a daughter and granddaughter for the Solos, so that might be Jaina and Allana, which suggests that we're looking at a post-LOTF storyline (if they preserve continuity). I would personally like a LOTF-era storyline because it would sync well with the actors' current IRL ages and having a second Galactic Civil War would provide a good backdrop for the movies though the war may take more than three movies to resolve. OTOH given that some of the LOTF had a lot of Boba Fett "filler" in them, perhaps they could've wrapped up the books faster without the bloat?

I actually wouldn't mind seeing an adaptation of the Yuuzhan Vong War. I thought that was better executed than the second Civil War. Plus it could help set up the Solo kids for a LOTF-inspired movie.

Oh well played Sir. Well played indeed !


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'd expect some carry through from Clone Wars though - maybe Ashoka and Ventress, plus a return of most of Mace Windu.

I'm hoping this was a joke.

He could return to lay his vengeance upon the Skywalkers.

Jackson would be up for it, but poor Mace would be well over a hundred.

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.
