Wouldn't it be better to see a pre-TPM film than a post-ROST film?
What's your opinion on that?
What's ANH? A Nude Hobbit? A Nice Hobo? I'm confused.
Come to think of it... What's ROST...?
Ah, this one I can shed some light on, being an avid Star Wars reader. ANH is an EU novel that came out a while back called A New Hope. It was pretty bad, featuring, among other things, dialogue such as Luke's asking "What's a duck?" I mean, it might have been been okay for when it was written, but clearly Lucas had not yet shared his post-Clone Wars plans with the authors, and a lot of it will be invalidated. It also had a sequel, Splinter of the Mind's Eye, that wasn't much better. It did feature Luke fighting Vader, which I guess is cool, but he was so untrained it was just silly. Plus Leia wasn't a Jedi, didn't even have any Force powers!
And, it's probably the source of those incest rumors, as Luke and Leia did have some romance scenes in the books. But fortunately we know George doesn't follow the EU, so we won't have to see any of these plots.
Yeah, I read that book. It's obvious Lucas had nothing to do with it.
