    Clearly the reason Lucas said Dark Empire was the closest to his ideas and why it couldn't use Darth Vader was because he had wanted a clone Emperor Vaader all along!

    It bewilders me that websites even bother to report the Chinese whispers around the staff water cooler. "Anakin's ghost might appear." "Psst, I hear Anakin could appear in the sequels!" "Psst, Vader's in the sequels!" "Vader will be resurrected in the sequels!" "There'll be a clone Vader!" :rolleyes:

    Yup, let's report the most distorted extrapolation of what might have originated ten sources back. (Because that doesn't make our journalist look like a moron!)

    That said, an Episode 3a, 3b and 3c showing the continuation of the Jedi purge and the start of the Dark Times might be interesting.

    I'd rather have that than Underworld. It would get all the continuity errors out of the way in six hours of film rather than a hundred hours of television.

    What the hell is this Underworld thing people keep going on about? Is that the live action or something?

    Underworld apparently is the "working title" for the live action show

    Tell that to people who insist on forcing Sith into the ST.

    Let's say Chewbacca is in the ST... how do we retcon that?

    We never saw him die, right? Did any Jedi ever feel him die through th Force?

    Could there have been another ship that would have saved Chewie... then gotten stranded on some planet for a few decades?

    Prior to NJO, Chewie will be captured by the sleeping villian of EP7, lets just use the one sith. Chewie is cloned, the clone has orders to kill Luke or Solos. Due to not seeing Luke or by over powering his commands, the clone becomes a hero. However, real Chewie is held in cryo stasis or carbonfrozen (w/e). On a mission, Jaina or even better Han discovers their long lost family member. They are happy and Chewie returns to the group. Makes a quip about changing his seat for one Leia's size...

    If the only way to salvage the EU is via clones, I vote screw it.

    There might actually be a great story to tell about how Chewie survived, if one can get past the trickiness of him surviving the moon's initial impact (either by brief shelter/intact shard of the planet til ship evac, etc). Maybe he wakes up from his injuries somewhere in the outer rim, gets stranded in a distant corner of the galaxy (or in unknown/wild space) by a Vong attack, and has his long journey of healing and making his way back to "civilization", wondering why no one has come for him and, perhaps, the extent and nature of his life debt.

    As I said, if you can get over that initial bump.. there's a lot of potential there.

    Correct, no one actually saw him die. With all the other deaths (and all the terror) roiling through the Force, I would say that it was unlikely that anyone could have felt him die.

    My solution to the Chewie problem:

    Sernpidal was not actually destroyed (i.e. shattered into fragments like Alderaan) - true it was hit by a 20km moon (twice as large as the so-called 'dino-killer' that hit the Yucatan region), but our planet survived that -- and it has been postulated that (a) there were more fragments hitting in other places over a period of hours or days and (b) that the dinosaur extinction actually occured some 300,000 years later.

    Wookies are very tough, and extremely strong - Chewie would have had, IMO, a good chance of surviving the initial impact. And when disasters happen, who are usually hard on the scene? Salvagers and Looters, in addition to rescue services!

    I'm starting to like the sound of this:

    Moon vs Chewie.

    Moon loses!

    Chewie's son took on the name Chewbacca as a sign of respect? :p

    Chewie was saved by the Mayor of Sernpidal. Isn't that obvious?

    Perhaps he is cloned by some bun-fluff from the holochess seat. His same is Chewbaccca, but pronounced Chebacca, out of respect.

    I can now see the future of Star Wars comics under Marvel... with Chewbacca strong enough to hold up an entire moon.

    We all knew that Chewie was a badass.

    Now, aside from me, who else is going to get the comics reference you've casually thrown in there Captain Goodvalors?

    With Marvel comics, will we get the return of Jaxxon?

    only if Jaxxon is the offspring of Jarjar Binks and a Lepi Carnivorus!

    I'm wondering whether or not the ST will be part of the "no EU" universe.

    The more I think about it... I'm not opposed to a good, epic finale to the current Star Wars Saga before getting some kind of reboot, if the alternative is some humongous retconning. My suspension of disbelief can only go so far.
