Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

We know there's a good chance Chewie will be back alive, and well because he's so iconic to the general public, who never heard of the Wu. We can forget about future characters named Anakin, because of Merchandising, and character confusion.
Yje prequels, and the cartoon If they bring in EU characters, there'll probably be all new backstories for them.

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

With a new Expanded universe would you like them to start immediatly after ROTJ to the Sequel trilogy, or work backwards from episode seven back to episode 6?

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

Yeah, if they're going to get Ford and Hamill to play in the films, they're going to need a lot of makeup and/or CG to pretend that it's still 1983. Clearly they're not going to start immediately after ROTJ, safarial.

I meant in terms of books, comics, cartoons, and video games.

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

Why? The comics, books, and games will probably not be changed by the new films. Half the EU takes place in the past relative to Star Wars, so that part's OK. The post-ROTJ EU is the new playground, and well, too bad for the post-ROTJ EU now. It's like fan-fiction now.

For all you know the next film is about an ancient threat that returns.

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

An unknown ancient threat could resurface, but how would it conflict with or overturn the pre-Star Wars EU stories?

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

Any backstory stuff in the new movies may conflict with the pre ROTJ EU, but a lot of it should be O.K.

The new post ROTJ continuity will almost certainly cherrypick chunks of the old EU but it will invalidate the general direction of the novels.

I reckon Chewie will be back, Han and Leia will have different children, the Vong won't exist and I'd expect to see Mara Jade...

So, Abrams would do the exact same thing that happened in Star Trek '09, a current continuity character from the future travels to the past and resets the timeline?
Yeah hadn't thought of that. It is a bad idea.

If by "multiverse" you mean the Eu is ignored, sure, it'll happen.

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

I don't see the EU surviving the new movies, or at least not the Post-ROtJ stuff. And honestly, I think that is for the best, they should just let the new movies do what they want without being beholden to dozens of books comics, ect. I don't really see them doing any kind of time travel or alternate universe thing to keep it in tact, they'll hopefully tie up whatever Post-RotJ story lines they have going and then pretend they never happened.

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

There's no a way movie that will be seen by billions will be beholden to a continuity from 20 years ago that was read by thousands. But I hope they use some ideas from it. I like the idea of Han and Leia having male and female twins. I hope Luke finds love sooner though.

^Considering the new movies will most likely pickup 30 years or so after the last one, I don't think we'll see when Luke "finds love".

Re: the Star Wars Expanded universe

the current EU continuity will survive in book and/or comic form. its not like Pocket Books suddenly stopped publishing Star Trek books set in the 'original' timeline.
