What do you think?
In before this gets locked!
Solid contribution to the thread. ^
I didn't see this already being discussed?
It would be nice to keep the poll open even if the responses were locked because I want to see some raw numbers. I would like a third option along the lines of "New story but try not to steamroll the EU if possible". Neither choice appeals to me.
Or at least add the poll to where this gets merged to. I'd definitely be interested in seeing what the general consensus is.
Can't edit the poll or I would have added that ^
Clean slate. I don't mind using ideas from the EU, so long as the ST isn't based on it and relies on it completely.
My problem with the some of the novels is them going too far out. A couple of them are almost like reading books from a completely different series.
At the same time I do like some of the concepts that they have produced.
I do think a clean slate is the better option of the two though.
Wasn't the EU always canned? It's been canned from the very beginning.
Nope. You made that up.
Only if it needs to be. Don't need to can the whole lot, just anything that's deemed Important for the story of the ST
Live, Love, Learn & Laugh
I agree, sort of - I don't care much about preserving the EU, but these are overly binary choices. And I also agree that the poll serves as a useful supplement to the existing thread, which is why I hope this doesn't get locked.
i dont want an story that depends on the EU, i mean, you NEED to read something to understand what´s happening in the movie.... but it would be aweful and many fans will be pissed if they just DELETE the EU from the main continuity....
i hope to see Ben and Jaina, if their characters are slightly different, i can live with that.... and if the EU has shown us something, is that it can be fixed itself and it´s very flexible.... i believe that SOTJ trology is a bridge from the main EU to an pre ST EU.... killing characters that don´t going to be part of the ST, adding another characters, etc.
but please.... don´t reboot the entire EU, the movie needs to be good by itself and not be dependent of previous EU material, but it dosen´t means that the previous material needs to be erased.
Well. not really. Lucas has said right from the very beginning that the stuff on the silver screen is the highest possible canon and that anything else can be trampled all over as and when Mr Lucas wishes.
EU all the way 45-50ABY is a clean slate .....characters already developed NO NEED TO CAN IT WHAT SO EVER !........
We have a thread for discussing the EU. It's stickied and everything.
