    Hell they could be super bold and say to hell with the jedi stuff altogether and do a movie based on a bounty hunter/smuggler or something like that.
    Well George always said the EU was only official if they never made sequels, but sequels would never be beholden to the EU. So I don't think we have to worry about it invading the movies.

    Or possibly the contract wasn't signed yet, and he wasn't allowed to say anything till official.

    As far as extended universe the only thing that was ever good, great actually was the first one made. Thrawn Trilogy. Original actors to old to do that story now anyway, but making an adaption of that would have been awesome. Still excited to see where they go.

    I point to Episode III when Sidious and Vader are at the theater, and they are speaking of the legendary Sith Lord, Darth Plagueis 'The Wise'.. This is where Sidious uses the story to lure Anakin into thinking he can prevent the death of Padme. So essentially, id actually wish theyd go back even further into a trilogy that takes place even way before I,II,III.. It could literally have nothing to do with what transpires in Lucas' 6 films. This allows these new movies to stand alone and speak for themselves. And maybe at the end you throw Palpatine in there as the new discovered Sith apprentice to Plagueis, which is implied by the theater scene..

    I like the climax of the whole story at the end of Return Of The Jedi.. I hope they dont try to extend on that..

    Then again, I enjoy all things Star Trek.

    I'm currently catching up on Star Trek: Enterprise the series whenever I'm on my trainer. Only seen two episodes, but I love the "throwbackness" of that show.

    The prequels could have been good. I went back and watched all of the star wars a couple months ago. Jedi does not stand up at all. Waht a piece of **** that movie was. Empire is still good and the original is alright, but not nearly as good as I remember. The prequels blew ass, but in there is a good story that just wasn't told right.

    I did like the new Star Trek so maybe this will be good. Not gonna hold my breath though.

I've only seen two episodes of Enterprise - not sure if there are any others.
    I concur with all of this. I liked Enterprise too.

    I've heard the Thrawn books were good. I've only read the Han Solo trilogy but that was very enjoyable. It's my understanding many of the other books are better and darker.

    I wouldn't hold your breath on them using some "obscure" trilogy or series of books to make a totally new set of movies out of. Just won't happen.

    THere's a general public out there - and the general public wants Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, etc. Sh1t. I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if they just didn't reboot the first 3 movies.
