Default Shadows of the Empire - Movie adaptation?

With he announcement that most of the past expanded universe is no longer canon, i think it's time to talk about the next big stories after the movies, which are the multimedia projects. The first one being Shadows of the Empire, which was set between Episode V and VI.



The story was quite popular with fans. So the question is, should it be once again canon? And if so, do you think it deserves a movie adaptation or a Game Reboot?

THe problem with a film is that the characters would need to be recast, which wouldn't suit very well and if viewed between the original films, would look kind of awkward. Not to mention that the general public that hasn't watched the original films would be kind of confused.

Or should Disney go ahead and call the original novel canon?

I think they should do it, they would have to recast all the main roles, though. I've said before that I think Xizor is the best villain outside of the movies.

It should be forgotten.

I voted for other: they could go the animated route with it.

I do think it will be scrapped though. But this is part of EU that i'll remember fondly, it was a cool read

I read the book and played the Nintendo 64 game, as well as had a few of the action figures.

I could see it done as a direct to DVD animated film? Something a lot like what DC does? It doesn't have to have the same kind of animation like TCW or Rebels, something more like Young Justice?

Also, Tom Hiddleston for Prince Xizor?

I suppose the animated route would be cool, but honestly I'm fine with it being an excellent novel, video game, and comic book telling different parts of the overall story. I don't really want a film adaption except for the fact it would make the events of Shadow of the Empire canon.
