I don't think you know what a Gary Stu is. You can think the Chairman and CEO of Disney, a multi Billion dollar company that opperates world wide, who has a Science Degree and ran ABC before and after Disney bought and then moved up, and whos salary is large based on bonuses based on on well the entire company does is worried about the holonet and the EU, but you'd be wrong. He is worried about making Disney profitable. Kennedy, not Iger, is going to take an interest in Star Wars creative. Iger is the CEO, he has much bigger and more important things he has to deal with everyday then the holonet and whether or not Mara Jade will be in Episode VII or if the new Cartoon series his animation department is working on, and projects to be profitable for Disney conflicts with a novel Zahn wrote in the early 90's. But fine, take my comments out of it. Iger never once said the EU would be a source of inspiration for his writers, he said the history, characters and planets provided infinate inspiration and oppertunities, and that Star Wars would continue on as movies, tv shows, theme part attractions and consume products. Thats not even close to saying "my writers are going to mine the EU for ideas". We do however have the new head of Lucasfilm saying they don't have a book series to serve as a template (not basis, template), the director saying - "Disney is not going to feel bound by what has been established in the expanded universe, they will come up with their own take on what happens."- . Plus Lucasfilms ALWAYS taken the position that the EU will not limit what can be done in the movies. You have the people involved in production saying the EU isn't going to be used, and Bob Iger never said the EU would be the inspiration for projects Disney was moving forward with.
