    Ironic since Patton himself was a prime mover in making fictional accounts about himself.

    If there's a logic to the EU, I have yet to see it.

    Ha see it... you must read it and not everything you have seen from Lucas PT or OT had logic either.

    No, my point is, given the large numbers of authors, artists and creative talents involved in the EU, it's difficult if not impossible for some, if not all of the collective waters to be muddled and it only gets more muddled when you combine them with the OT, PT, TCW and every inconsistent statement George Lucas has made over the last 35+ years.

    So very, very tired...

    But until we get leaks/conformation/the movie actually comes out - yes, I believe the denial will continue to the bitter end - there will be this.

    I'm curious about the supposed new Luke book that is coming out - and pray it's free of red mange.

    Sweet. Jesus. Why did I open this thread?

    A couple of points:

    1. I like some EU, but Jacen becoming a Sith was monumentally ****ing stupid, not to mention a retcon of earlier material about him and the total slander of a great character, Vergere, in order to make the monumentally ****ing stupid plot point work.

    We're talking about the same set of books that had a 60-year-old Leia wearing Daisy Dukes and talking to Han about bondage and ordering their daughter to kill their son, and had another great character, Tahiri, molesting a 14-year-old Ben Skywalker.

    Yeah, kill it with fire.

    2. The timeline coinciding with the end of the NJO makes me hope that the LOTF books are being retconned, not kept, even if Disney decides to keep the NJO, which had its good and bad points.

    3. Also hoping the upcoming Luke book is free of "red mange." (Just started the recently released Han book taking place between ANH and ESB and it is ****ing awesome. Make it into a film, Disney.)

    erm, this sentence:

    does not correlate to the notion of "common sense logic". "Flow walking" flasbacks to a decade and a half multiple book series wouldn't fall under the "common sense" umbrella when one is making a commercial, mainstream, blockbuster FX film. Doesn't fit.

    It happens! Two pages back we had a bit going on there. Then gets derailed by EU Hardliners vs. EU hatorz. We need to bridge the gap, people! there is a middle ground! The middle ground which, in reality, is probably what is going to end up happening anyway. (which means the movies will do whatever they want and then the EU will twist and contort to incorporate that old EU content. And there's probably a very good possibility a whole whack of EU originated content will work it's way into the ST anyway, see TCW series.)

    However, the notion that there will be a movie released by Disney that features "Flow walking" flashbacks for an extended montage of events that happened in a de facto canonized old novel series is not one of those things that would "work". It's a really, really bad idea.

    One thing to keep in mind if Jeese Plemmons role will be Luke's son than he would have been born in ten to 12 ABY

    This is all speculation and what I post is just my opinion guessing what if maybe who knows just throwing it out there. What does not make sense to you may make sense to some one else. I think we can all agree that no matter lets hope Disney and JJ get it right because the big three are back. :)
