    To be fair, there were only two, maybe three games based on podracing (if you count Bombad Racers). Compare this to the Battle of Hoth, and weep.

    It's okay, blackmyron, I thought of LOTR too.

    I'm worried about the fate of much of the EU, but I'm also in fear of the Star Wars comics going from Dark Horse and back to Marvel. I love what Dark Horse has done with the EU and don't want to see it all undone.

    I'm worried that they're going to throw everything out *except* TCW, which will be infuriating.

    I don't mind if they get rid of everything, just so long as it's everything. :p

    There's no way they'll do that. It would be unnecessary bad press. The only thing that will be "thrown out" will be whatever they decide to contradict. So TCW looks pretty safe [face_cow]

    Yeah, it's all over reddit now, too.

    Also "lol" at the fact we'll be getting all those meta "Han shot first jokes" that the EU has only just managed get out of its system all over again.

    Harrison gets a big paycheck and to finally get his wish after 30 years. I just hope they have things for these older actors to do. Nostalgia is fun but it's also a killer. Seeing Bridges reprise his Fynn role in Legacy was AWESOME and COOL, but the character also did pretty much nothing and then blew himself up at the end.

    In other words if your gonna have these characters, make actually be characters in your movie. Not just props.

    I'm gonna go ahead and believe that Arnt is going to go for a big family story in the next trilogy, so hopefully their will be no issues.

    Well, I guess that's it for the post-OT EU then.

    I'm both elated and depressed by this news. Yeah, Han Solo in the ST, played by Harrison Ford. Oh no, I'm going to have to see him killed off most likely. *sobs*

    You want the Sequel Trilogy? Then you will have to make a sacrifice for it!

    ...I'm not sure if I mean Han Solo or the Post-RotJ EU. EU would hurt a lot more. In 300 ABY everyone is dead anyway. It's all a matter of perspective.

    Pretty much this. If there gonna be in it at least have them do something rather than just fan service.

    As for Ford I hope it's better than Indy 4 or Die Hard 5 or any of these other memory destroying films where old actors try to reprise famous films from there youth

    Well, if we're being honest, I'm not sure I want the ST, not that it matters. I would've been happy to just continue to read about the characters I cared about and not bothered with more films. Obviously, Disney did not ask me before they bought LF. The nerve...

    For what it's worth, Ford's presence would (remember: unconfirmed) be good news for the EU--we could then rule out at least the first thirty years or so after Endor. Hell, with the "medical technology" excuse, 2013 Harrison Ford could easily play 50-70 ABY Han Solo if they were so inclined.
