Peter Mayhew set to reprise his role as Chewbacca. Bye bye EU, it was fun while it lasted.

Not unless they kill Chewie in the movie.

In a flashback? The movie is set 10 years after Chewie's EU death.

Retcon: Chewie survived that moon falling on him, went on vacation until he got a lucrative movie deal.

Wouldn't mean the death of the EU, just the NJO series onward. More of an amputation.

But I still personally believe the NJO was their crowning achievement. Anything later, they can toss it. I don't mind. But the NJO...Sad

The moment you have an amputation big enough, the rest is drawn so far into question it might as well be gone too. That is what is meant by the death of the EU. Suspension of disbelief permanently lost.

Just to remind everyone, this isn't confirmed, it's still a rumor at this point. Until it comes from the horse's mouth, in this case Disney, Lucasfilm, or Bad Robot, it's not official.

It is interesting how this could play out if this is true, however. Mayhew just had a double knee-replacement a few months back, so I'm surprised he is in a good enough condition to don the fur again. Will Chewie be limited to a more laid-back role, or will they CGI/stunt double his action sequences? (Shaq could use a good role after being in Adam Sandler movies...)

NJO is also where most of the people I know who have stopped reading Star Wars stopped. So, if that's the case than it would also likely please plenty of people.

People just didn't like it because they started killing people off in NJO, but the stories were good for the most part. Then after that they kept killing people off, but without the good stories.

It does look like an AT-AT foot. But it might also be an AT-AT-like vehicle.

Also, I squealed like a little girl when I saw that.

Anyone remember the movie Sneakers? Here's what I think...

Too Many Rumors

I'm trying hard not to allow myself to react to rumors. As a post-RotJ EU fan for over 20 years, it's hard.
