    Isn't 7,8 and 9 based on Lucas drafts which were ment to be about Luke finding his sister with his ghost father in tow.

    Now of course he already had found his sister, He will be in his late 50's and his Dad's ghost will be young man in his 20's. Not sure how that will play out TBH

    You've just made me picture Luke hunting for his lost Half-Human/Half-Togruta sister. [face_sick]

    I don't think circa ESB Luke and Leia were supposed to be related in Lucas's mind.

    They weren't it was thrown into RTJ to wrap things up because at the time Lucas (and the rest of the crew) had had enough of Starwars and didn't want to make any more. I believe Luke was supposed to find her on another planet.

    Didn't Lucas say Leia was originally intended to be the main character, before it was changed to Luke?

    I believe there's a reference in Star Wars on Trial alluding to that.

    J.J Abrams may be a huge fan of Star Wars... but I don't think it's been implied that he's a fan of the Expanded Universe as well. Has he even read any of the novels or comics that take place after Return of the Jedi?...... who knows. So weather or not the new films somehow tie in with the post ROTJ novels and comics remains to be seen.

    The phrase "Lucas originally intended" is from time to time used on these forums. I think it's important to acknowledge that when it comes to the details - there is no original! Ok, maybe a single one or a tiny few - but in general, Lucas's been working on his scripts for so long that about everything has been tossed up and twisted several times. Probably the only thing that's been constant, is his 'idea' with it - and that has been a very Platonesque thing - something he's been working towards - and from time to time even has been forced to compromise with due to harsh realities. This is no critique of Lucas, just acknowledging a working method and explaining why so many contradictory, seemingly "original" versions are referred to.

    Questioning that there was a grand, glorious plan for SW merits the charge of....HERESY! The Inquisition will be along shortly Kataja, don't try to claim they were unexpected! Everyone tries that one on.

    Our chief weapon is The Glove of Darth Vader. The Glove and... we don't need anything else.

    The Glove is indeed a powerful weapon... but how can you assume anyone is capable of controlling it? I've seen strong men with the intent of using the Glove, only to have the Glove use them.

    The Glove is a gift. A Gift to the foes of Canon. Why not use it?

    You are charged with three heresies. Heresy by thought, heresy by deed, heresy by word and heresy by action!

    Four heresies!

    The ring Glove is too dangerous to use!

    If we end up with TPM in 3D and nothing else, I will cry.

    I'd laugh and laugh.

    Seriously, why do we need 3D Star Wars. Other than those comics, I mean. Clearly.
