For once, I actually agree with Bane here. If someone wanted me to, I could do my best to get ahold of them. Wink

Another thing to be done would be to send a letter

You should do that, Jason.

I have decided to write a letter to George Lucas on behalf of the EU Cantina.

JJ, someone already did that, but you can get in on it.

Assuming this what you mean by not ruining it.

Not to dampen any spirits, but I wouldn't count on a letter doing much good. For one, Lucasfilm is already well aware of the EU and its loyal fandom (and unfortunately it also knows that the vast majority of that fandom will fill theatre seats regardless of how much they trample on/ destroy the EU). Secondly, the script is already written and if they want this movie to be out by 2015, they have to keep things moving.

You have to realize how much mail Lucas gets on this subject, polite or impolite. He gets all sorts of hate mail and letters asking him to just stop, all of it. You have to know that they are going to do what they are going to do, there is nothing at all anyone can do to stop it. You want this to not happen, or at least to die after one movie? Convince fans everywhere not to see it, and the general public as well. But that isn't going to happen, this movie is going to be top of its year (or at least top 3). So we might as well wrap our heads around this and hope for the best with our EU.

Personally I've decided not to worry about it too much. First of all they might not destroy the EU (like many have said there are a few places the movies could slide into too, though I'm doubtful of that happening) but even if it does, what if the movies turn out to be amazing, and we all enjoy them?? Yes it would still be sad to see the EU go, but it would awesome to see great star wars movies on screen again. Everyone seems to either think it will co-exist with the EU or be horrible and destroy it. What I wish to propose is that what if it does overrule the EU....but it's better?

The problem here is that the EU is many dozens of stories, of varied quality, while the movies are going to be five, that we know are definitely happening.

The movies can't replace the EU because the post ROTJ EU is nearly 40 years of history in universe. If the timeline for trilogy III compares to the others than it will cover no more than fifteen years. It simply nullifies the history.

In terms of quality it's subjective. But there are arguably more than five best EU stories so you can't really have a good comparison. In fact the mediums are totally different, and that is the whole point in the first place for why an EU exists. By taking that away, you are taking away a large part of SW for people, no matter what the quality is.

Star Wars is not just a series of movies, it's been much more for over 30 years now and to pretend like that just goes away is a big disservice to the fans. To me that's the real rub, not the story issues.

^I'm with Dog in a way.

But there is a thing I wanted to ask you all.

What kind of an universe of SW do we teach our own younglings to understand. Ours or Theirs (let's face it, it will be different).?

EDIT: Should we teach them at all?

My children will be raised on the Star Wars I grew up with till they're old enough to start making their own decisions creatively (around 12 or so). Then its up to them. If they want to include the prequels in Saga Day (which will be annual) that'll be fine, if they want to rewatch old TCW episodes cool. If they like the new movies that's fine to, but they will be raised on NJO and Zahn and such like I was.

Apparently Fisher and Ford have signed up to the new movies?

When asked if she will play the character in the movie, she told Palm Beach Illustrated: ''Yes.''


I don't think that sounds like a proper confirmation (it being from Palm Beach Illustrated makes me even more wary). It could have just been a reporter asking '[if you're asked] would you play Leia?' and news sites, in their usual manner, have just run away with it.

Will look into it further.

Casting speculation:

I love the idea of Tom Hardy as Jagged Fel and Josh Hutcherson as Ben Skywalker. Those characters couldn't be cast any better imo.

I guess it depends where it is in the timeline - I would prefer something a bit earlier, when Ben is a kid. Also, Josh Hutcherson is busy with The Hunger Games for a few years, so that could push Episode VII back, which I definitely don't want.

Cool link Reep.

Someone in the comments section said that Kristen Stewart should play Jaina. lol I feel the power of the dark side growing stronger with nerd rage.
