    Yep. I actually had the pleasure of briefly (very briefly!) talking to Zahn on FB. He said the first one didn't bring in enough money to warrant finishing the rest of the trilogy in that format. Bummer.

    It's great. Read the books, then get the hardcover edition of the comic adaptation.

    I think George has a "questionable" relationship with the truth on the term of sequels.

    I truly believe that if the "Big 3" return for the ST and the storyline revolves around them, TTT is absolutely &#)@'ed.

    Still a darn good trilogy of books though, go ahead and read em I say. And enjoy their canonicity for two more yrs. ;)

    Read them. This trilogy is better than anything Disney will be able to cobble together.
