Simon Kinberg on the Expanded Universe

media-news-v5

IGN has a brief interview with Star Wars standalone film consultant and Rebels producer Simon Kinberg. When asked about the Expanded Universe he said it is not off-limits, and could inspire things in Rebels. Regarding films however, he makes a point of saying, “the canon is the canon, and the canon is the six films that exist.”

While obviously not an official confirmation that the EU is going to be overwritten, it’s another indication that it won’t be treated as gospel, but rather as a source of inspiration.
