    Should Krayt of been Jacen Solo? Absolutely not! It would ruin the sheer awesomeness that was the Legacy.

    Should Jacen Solo of become Darth Caedus? No, but that boat has sailed and the current EU has suffered because of that decision and the series that spawned.

    Personally, I'm glad he wasn't, but if he was it would've meant he'd live through LotF.... :(

    I just don't like the fact that Clone War era Jedi were running around. Krayt is what 150? K'Kruk is somewhere around there as well

    I'll give you that one but Krayt should have been Hett's son or something. It would have been cool to see Jacen though. Even if it is just me.

    While the Abeloth thing makes me kind of nauseous, I think Krayt's role and the One Sith in relation to Caedus and the Lost Tribe is well played. I like their patience. So I'm glad that Krayt and Caedus are two different characters.

    This post is old... but so relevant.

    Too much emphasis placed on blood and lineage. Too much pressure, too many expectations.

    Did Krayt become a Sith in order to stop the Sith?

    Thankfully Disney will scrap the EU and will hopefully start it afresh but with proper emphasis on quality over quantity.

    Alright in regard to the Lost Temple Jedi. I would have went Kriffing Gundark Poodoo Crazy had they put Lowie on the Lost Temple Council... That would have made me the happiest fan in the world... Talk about a character shield. It basically says, you can not kill this wookiee Jedi and he will one day be a master...

    Jacen? NO NO NO.

    As I said, years ago, Krayt should have been....
    TANK!

    Sure, he'd need a growth spurt, but a hundred and twenty years is plenty of time for that!

    Cause Tank was to Vader as Boba Fett was to Jabba the Hutt

    Name the plot to half of these.... seriously Disney could learn from the EU not the other way around... Look at Marvel, they continue what they have been doing since Disney bought them. Same will probably be true for the EU

    Well, I can't do half, but "Simba's Pride" is "Well, we've done Hamlet with Lions, so why don't we do Romeo and Juliet with Lions?"

    "Little Mermaid II" is, "Ariel's daughter retreads her mother's journey, but in reverse"

    EDIT: I know Jennifer Hale voiced Cinderella in Cinderella 2, but can't remember any plot details. :( BE ASSURED, HOWEVER, THAT I DID SEE IT! :p

    O those I have only seen Simba's Pride, many times. My sister felt it was the better of the two, but I liked Scar and didn't really care about love stories. I still watched it every time she did.

    But this is off-topic. Unnecessary sequels that tread the same story over and over have nothing to do with Star Wars.
    Sorry, couldn't resist saying that.

    No it is the point of Disney knowing how to put out QUALITY expansions to their main movies... I don't expect them to roll out Direct to DVD Star Wars movies, but the point is Disney isn't as great at trying to keep fans interested as Lucasfilm might be

    It wasn't bad... Lion King 1 1/2 wasn't terrible either but that being said, Disney has misses more than Hits...

    There are also about 200 direct-to-video Winnie the Pooh movies, but I love Winnie the Pooh more than life itself so I can't make fun of those.

    LOL that is why I left out Lion King 1 1/2 and the Alladins. That being said, no Star Wars direct to DVD
