I realize there is speculation and worries about what the new flims will mean to the EU, I had a thought today, Yes is kind of a cheat but it will also open up other ideas. what if during episode 7 Han Solo is killed giving harrison ford his wanted death scene. but during that Luke has a Force Vision which unspools showing us the stories of the books as possible futures if Han falls. So it saves the EU and gives us an alternate univerese where the original EU and the potential "New" EU can exist without goofing things up to much. and besides i heard the "Maker" himself saying they have a huge treasure trove of stories in the books and comics and they are being handed over or something to that effect. so perhaps with a little work the EU can stick around i mean 30 years of work/money and fun would be a waste to just toss it. that's my thoughts.
