a little analysis I did for whoever finds it worth reading: The role of the post-ROTJ EU so far and in light of setting up the Sequels: -From Rebellion to Republic reborn: ---Taking back the galaxy and Coruscant (achieved) ---Defeating the last Imperial Holdouts (achieved: though Empire lives on as Remnant due to peace treaty!) ---Reestablishing order and peace (achieved: though many follow up conflicts and shisms) -Reformation of the Jedi in Balance and Harmony: ---Collecting Lore (achieved) ---Finding new Apprentices (achieved) ---Founding a new Jedi Order (achieved) -Passing the Torch ---Children born to the heroes of old and raised (achieved) ---the new government surviving initial challenges (achieved though with reformations) ---the galaxy reuniting happily ever after (achieved but not for long) former Sequel plots the EU already did... -Second Rise of the Empire ---Thrawn uniting the Warlords ---Fate of Luke's cut off hand: Luuke Clone ---Palpatines return from the Dead as a clone ---Dark Luke -Rise of the Jedi ---"There is another Skywalker" Leia becoming a Jedi ---The SkySolochildren becoming Jedi ---A SkySolochild falls to the Dark Side ---Vader's Force Ghost ---Luke finding a wife -Survival and Reformation of Evil/Sith ---A member of the new Jedi Order/SkySolo child falls ---Secret Apprentice of Vader/Palpatine surviving to continue ---Force Mystery/Choosen One Prophecy in relation to Mortis and postROTJ Sith survival: TCW/FOTJ etc. ---NJO: Alien invasion as next big thing with The Unifying Force as Force mystery revelation so which of these might the sequels attempt to do different, or would they combine them all into one multifacetted trilogy? I still believe the EU stays mostly as it is against all panic voodoo around online. So they will be set after all of this and feature a different yet related plot. though.. what are your predictions? NO panic or death of EU posts please.. I will not comment on those. I want creative and progressive discussion of this.
