If Disney turns the Thrawn trilogy into glorified fanfiction overnight, it will be a kick in the teeth to true SW fans. A real "fuck you" moment.

Anyone who doesn't understand that isn't a real SW fan at all.
I think it's pretty safe to assume that the Thrawn trilogy will bite it because it would roughly be in the same timeframe as the new movies if they take account the age of the original actors and set the movies some decades in the future.

The only exception would be if they use Thrawn as the new main villain which i would be all for as he's an awesome character (the trilogy less so.. too much of "Heroes at the right place and right time to thwart the villain" syndrome).

I fully expect the EU to get disregarded for the most part except for maybe the most recognizable new characters like Mara Jade and such, at best they'll use established characters and just write new stories.

Oh, please. Don't we get enough of the "true fan" and "real fan" silliness in the endless nuTrek debates? Neither STAR WARS or STAR TREK is intended ONLY for the hardcore fans--and nobody in their right minds makes a $200 million movie ONLY for the folks who have read every comic book and tie-in novel. STAR WARS belongs to everybody.
Not just 'real fans' ?

Spot on Greg...

Every Bob Iger moment is a "fuck you" moment.

It's kind of what he does.

Thrawn could actually be safe because of the actors ages. Jedi was released 30 years ago. If they jump the movies 30 years that would put it in the New Jedi Order.

Now i doubt Disney will care about the new republic books, and it will most likely create a brand new story, but adding the original actors only helps to skip over Thrawn and that era.
