You're talking to someone who: Hasn't paid for anything SW in over a year. I don't own any of the Blu-Rays and have no interest in owning them. I have one set of DVDs, which contains the original OT, so I'll never need any more. Didn't even see AOTC or ROTS in theaters. I'm not even sure if I'll go see the ST. Depends on what I'm doing at the time. That first book will probably be a novelization. I haven't read a single SW novelization. I also didn't read any of the direct tie-ins to the prequels until after I saw the prequels. I wanted to experience the movies in a vacuum without EU perspective of them. I agree, I've said this is the most likely scenario since I first heard there will be new movies. There's evidence of it here in this forum. But they'll never get another EU dollar out of me. The words "what really happened" mean nothing when you consistently change "what really happened".
