    I'm sorry you feel that way Zabrak 2, I'm optimistic that the ST is going to restore Star Wars for those that were dissatisfied by the PT. I'm not one of those people that hate on the PT, but I read many comments on the Internet made by the people who do hate it. In any case, I think the ST is going to be fantastic for the Star Wars Universe. I hope it includes Jaina Solo and Ben Skywalker, but I won't be too butt hurt if TPTB create new Skywalker characters.

    This post is really effective if you imagine it being said by Regan from the Exorcist.

    Why is there no thread about actual info on SW7 like official stuff that they have done so far. I havent found any thread where we can talk about what is already in place for the film. If there is one please direct me to it.

    I'd like to say, civilly, that I am interested as to what serious EU readers will have to say about Ep7 once it is out...and how it relates to/erases/connects with EU stories and concepts. Not being a fan/follower of the EU, I'd like to share in their joy/frustration with Ep7.

    It's not saying too much, but it definitely seems they're at least trying to build off of what the EU has established while designing the Sequel Trilogy, with Lucas specifically talking about EU characters.

    He never said "We're using the EU essential guides for reference." He just stated that he is knowledgeable about the Star Wars universe, probably more than the "hundred encyclopedias and things" do. He also verfies his consultant status. He also says Spielberg would never want to do a Star Wars film.

    His knowledge makes sense, since he created SW and has "consulted" on everything, in a way.

    This article does not state what the thread title indicates.

    Announced today, this will be starring the great-granddaughter of Han and Leia:

    (Han, Luke, and Leia could still be alive during this story)


    I'm going to lean toward coincidence for now, but you never know...

    The "encyclopedias" (the essential guides) are mostly about the EU. They're clearly researching characters not from the movies, and Lucas is consulting on that.

    The comic is set 100 years out. Ep7 is "allegedly" 45 years out. Hmmmm

    Wow, I read that quote, and get the exact opposite of what you posted. Sounds to me like he's saying, "Yes, there are encyclopedias about this kind of thing, but my word trumps all, and they're better off just asking me."

    Nothing is confirmed. Another rumor said it would be generations later.

    Exactly. Lucas is just verifying he IS the Star Wars Encyclopedia.

    Lucas also said in the announcement video that they'd be encouraging the screenwriter and director to look at all the books and comics.

    Here, Lucas is just saying that he knows about the main EU characters. (I'm presuming Jacen, Jaina, Ben, Allana, and the general post-ROTJ stories for Han, Luke, and Leia)

    I could see this film "setting up" the comic series, though. Like, they issue the comic series. Then, when the fans are hooked and salivating, give them the backstory to the comic.

    But, this *is* an interesting observation.

    Comics don't work like that. This material predates the announcement. And I don't see Lucas and Kennedy and the "small group of people who knew about Episode 7" sitting down with John Ostrander to rework a comic this early in the game.

    I'm trying to give the OP the benefit of the doubt. :p At worst, the comic actually sounds like something I might enjoy. If I wasn't so biased that SW comics are all incredibly poorly drawn.

    Well I think we've all been discussing the possibility of EU elements being in the movies, but perhaps not exact.
