They're being based on treatments that Lucas wrote, and given that he's said in his world he'd have gone in a totally different direction than the EU, most likely theres not gonna be a whole lot of it in there. Not to mention it'd be best if Star Wars didn't become a bunch of loose adaptations like Superhero films. Really depends on the story though, they'll probably use elements as inspiration.
