Keep in mind that Disney now owns Marvel, a much bigger comics company than Dark Horse. After the Marvel buyout, all of the Disney comics beig published by Boom! Studios were brought back under the Disney umbrella. The same will likely happen with Star Wars.

I thought that Legacy was the best Star Wars story since TESB.
Same here. I thought it was pretty consistently excellent.
Apparently, so does Newsarama. They list Legacy as the #3 most essential Star Wars comic.
We'll just have to agree to disagree on the Cade Skywalker era of EU history. It just did nothing for me, really. That said I raise a glass to toast anybody who knows this much about the SW universe, both filmed and otherwise.

We Padawans and Masters have to stick together.

Haven't you heard? The end of Jedi didn't actually ensure the restoration of balance to the Force. Apparently Anakin was really supposed to stay in Mortis and play with his dick while Palpatine rode around on a unicycle cackling maniacally and draining the life force of the entire galaxy. Or at least Troy Denning seems to think so.

I'm not. He's struck me as primarily a businessman ever since the late '80s. Besides, Disney did a great job with The Avengers, so I'm not worried.

Only that I had no idea that random bounty hunter chick in one of the trailers for The Old Republic had a name. I should have known better; this is Star Wars, everyone gets a name eventually.

I'm getting rusty.

Heck, she got an action figure with interchangeable heads in the Hasbro Vintage Collection a couple of months ago.

Doesn't Lucas regard the EU as canon? He may not let Episode 7 contradict it.
No, the EU is canon only insofar as it's not contradicted by the films and television shows.

The new Dark Horse graphic novels coming out in 2013 are already going to change and contradict long-established EU lore so I don't think it matters if the megabudget films do. The EU will have been partially rewritten by the time Episode VII rolls around.
Which ones are you referring to? I haven't read anything that suggests this. If you're talking about the simply titled Star Wars that Brian Wood is writing, then it won't be contradicting anything from what I've read - it will merely be approached from the perspective of characters who know nothing except what they would have known after the Battle of Yavin.

That is not the same thing. It would be like Marvel Comics Properties being put under the management of Disney Publishing, which certainly didn't happen. The only thing that did happen was Marvel getting Crossgen and ruining a second chance for those properties in true Marvel style.

Don't you dare compare HP with Star Wars again.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

This is shocking news. Lucas has had control of SW from the beginning and I thought he was never going to let it go. Now he waits this long, I don't get it. I'm not saying I don't like it, I'm saying I don't get it. I think this could be a great thing for SW as long as it's handled correctly and has good characters and good writing. I hope they don't start Disneying it up, they did fine with the Avengers, so if they can let creative people do their thing, then SW can last a long time. The one thing that does bother me is, though Lucas screwed up the PT, I've always liked his general vision for SW. The classic Greek myth themes, themes of falling Republics, corruption and so on. I just think that he should have let somebody else write direct and star in the PT. I would love to see a post ROJ SW. I would love to see the continuance of the Skywalker family saga or other main characters. It seems that maybe episode seven and the sequel trilogy was already in the works, so I'm guessing Lucas may still have some influence. I would also guess that since everyone is familiar with the Skywalker name, the first set of sequels will involve another Skywalker (maybe a father, son team up ). The second trilogy will probably take another direction, I think. I just hope they don't make it cheesy, oversaturate us and put in explosions and CGI in the place of dialog, exposition or other character developments.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Wow, all of this news about a film and a new trilogy that won't even be out for almost three more years and we have yet to see the first real teaser poster for Star Trek Into Darkness. I wonder what's taking Paramount so long?

Duncan Jones directing Star Wars? ...yeah, that would be pretty awesome. Neil Blomkamp also comes to mind.

The Ep 7 writers must be in a bit of a pickle. Canon to the right of them, canon to the left of them...
Literally the only stuff they have to actually avoid contradicting, per the Star Wars canon policy, are the previous six movies. It's a much smaller canon problem than the one Abrams sidestepped with alternate universes in his Star Trek, so I think they'll be fine.
