    Tons of books have been published about events in the GFFA by now, including some from what looks to be the time period of the new movie.

    How do you think Lucas will deal with this? Will we get to see some EU characters in the movies, or hear mention of them, a la ROTS? I think it would really cool if the books were integrated with this film. It's the perfect opportunity to display some EU love.

    Since I thought that EU would be the only thing left after ROTS I'm very happy about this, and I really hope that the EU figures will be more than some background characters or name droppings.

    I hope Lucas just says frell the EU and does his own thing, thus putting a huge set of retcon in motion.

    I hope that Han Solo guy from the books gets included. I think he and that furry extra thingy from RotS would make great characters.

    The Genghis heard that Chewbacca will have his own trilogy of books, along with a wisecracking pirate sidekick and a hooptie starship...

    Dear God, I hope not [face_sick] The EU has taken a big steaming crap on Lucas' Vision, not that he cares about it or anything. After all, it's all a parallel universe, and certainly not cannon!

    Ah, that is where you are wrong.

    The EU is better than the films could ever hope to be.

    And, I agree about Han Solo! He should definitely be included; he's really cool.

    I'm sure we'll get EU this time around. Quinlan could be a really cool character to appear and help Yoda and Obi-Wan. Also his kid could be friends with Luke and Leia.


    Also a lot of the senators meeting with Bail and Padmé were cut in ROTS, I'm sure some of them will show up. That Mon Mothma chick seemed pretty important, so she'll probably be there, as well as the guy from Kaut, and Fang Zar because he was cool. Alsom in the ROTS book he mentions a guy from Corellia, Garm Bel Somethingoranother. He could show up.


    Also teh Ferus Olin.



    And maybe this guy, Thrawn from Outbound Flight will show up. He looked pretty cool on the cover. The kind of thing Lucas likes, like Aayla Secura.



    And maybe Lando could show up and hook up with Leia. He did win a ship that was in ROTS for a second.

    Oooh...what about Bria Tharen and the gang stealing the Death Star plans? I mean, we saw it in ROTS, right, so they have to wrap that storyline up.

    I almost want to go to the spoiler forum and see what they are talking about over there, but I've sworn to remain spoiler free...

    Just because he was [face_hypnotized] by that blue chick in AotC, that doesn't mean Lucas give a crap about the Ewwww....

    I mean, he went out of his way to show her blasted repeatedly at short range! It shows just how much George Lucas HATES THE EU!


    LOL!1!! GL sez EU iz teh suq!1!!11! He had it shot! that r0xx0rz!1!!

    Let me show you my cannon [face_laugh] Don't you see what he meant? His cannon is better than any of that EU crap!
