    Well, the live-action series sat on the shelf because Lucas Films didn't have the resources to fund it. If you desired for the franchise to continue, he probably wanted done by someone with the financial power to grow it.

    i.e Disney.

    Pretty much. I enjoyed the books that stuck to the feel of the movies, but it went off the rails fairly quickly. I didn't even like most the Thrawn trilogy. It felt "diminished" to me. Just a personal preference.

    They won't discontinue the old EU books and comics. They're still profitable for LFL and that will ensure their long term survival.
