    Yes, there are 3 novels cowritten by George Lucas and Chris Claremont, The Shadow War trilogy: Shadow Moon, Shadow Dawn and Shadow Star. It takes place many years later with a teen Elora Danan. Also a lot of the characters from the movie barely show up at all.

    True, but I did find the novels to be a good read.

    Ronnie Howard was the director, I think, so it may be up to him if he wants to do a trilogy.

    Well I didn't imply if that was good or bad. Just to inform that some characters barely show up, while others are very much changed from what they were on the film. Just be prepared for changes.

    Also it's up to Lucas. He created the characters and owns the rights, so it's noy up to Ron Howard.

    I tried to get through the first book but kept falling asleep. Too much description, not enough dialogue or action. (And I like Tolkien.) The plot was vague and convoluted. Most sections of the book were so riddled with descriptions of trees or rocks or boats that I found them unreadable. I'm sure it's a great story; I just don't think it's written well enough to entertain.

    I saw Willow when I was like 8 or something. I remember thinking it was pretty cool.
