Ok, first let me make a few points, just so you can see where I'm going with this. 1. I'm not intending to bash anyone or anything. There are people who love it, people who hate it, & people who, like me, really don't follow it. Except for the movie novelizations I know next to nothing about the EU & wouldn't want to insult the intelligence of any EU fan by pretending that I did. 2. Defining the Saga. If someone were to ask me to describe the Saga in it's simplest terms, I'd have to describe it as the story of the rise, fall, & redemtion of Anakin Skywalker. That being said, disregarding any EU that takes place before TPM or after ROTJ, what I want to concentrate on is the time between the trilogies. Now, unless GL does something completely different & there is a MONUMENTAL jump foward in time at the end of Ep3, we're going to be looking at a period of about 20 years of untold SAGA. My question is this. Will the EU that tells the story between the trilogies now be considered cannon? There will be no more movies to contradict them. Will those of you who currently dislike or do not follow the EU change your opinion? Or do you feel that, in the words of the almighty Yoda "Already learned that which we need to know" & consider the Saga complete after Ep3? I guess I will have to start following the EU. I'm sure there will be many questions left to be answered after Ep3 & this will be the "official word".
