    If people would read the following books. Making of star wars and making of empire strikes back. You can see that most of the stuff in the rough draft that did not make it the original trilogy was repackaged for the prequel trilogy. George does not like to dump ideas he had. If you can get your hands on some complete rough drafts of the original OT, I can guarantee you that some of the themes, names, planets and other things he mentions in those rough drafts will show up in the sequels. I am sure an analysis can give people a sense of where he is going with his story.

    People are gonna say. " Of course that is his intent" but do they know what the story will be? You can speculate all you want... I have read proof.

    example: Mace Windu... he was in the early rough drafts for the OT but did not make it. He was repackaged for the prequels. I cant remember any other names or themes since it has been a while since i read these books but they are there.

    That is why they are saying that the story will be original and not based on anything EU. It is because its already there.

    As I have mentioned in the past, the Kaiburr Crystal stands out as one element he has not yet used which was prominent in early drafts so perhaps it will play a role.

    The Whills are a race we have not yet seen on screen, nor has the name Aquilae been used for a planet. The Urellians (the lizard-like race of which Han Solo was originally intended to be a member) have not appeared yet either. What else is there?

    The Whills were in the script for Episode III, but since Liam Neeson wouldn't record the voice over the line wasn't used.

    Didn't you hear? The quest for Kaiburr Crystal is the focus of Episode VII. The Solo children need to seek it out because it is the only way they can bring back the only one who can stop Palpatine.... I won't say who it is! O:)
