If they learnt anything from all the prequel haters, being hated by Star Wars fans will screw you up in the long-term(looking at you George Lucas!).
They could though. I expect backlash no matter what ends up on the big screen. Someone's bound to be upset and disappointed by it... it's Star Wars! lol. There's some fans with a very specific idea of what they want to see and which characters, and those could be the ones potentially very upset if things dont go the exact post-ROTJ EU route. I honestly think while it's natural to want a certain character/story to end up in the movie, it's best to keep an open mind. If it's a great story, i wont care if it contradicts what i know from EU, even if on some level i could be disappointed by it if what was changed was something i enjoyed. But as usual, it will all come down to personal preference.

I think the last SW game i bought was Rebel Assault II lol, so i can only read your conversations about the games available. I saw my cousin play a few (KOTOR was one i vividly remember), but i've never really gotten into that. I should probably ask if i can borrow those and see what i've been missing lol.

I can see them bringing some characters from the EU in but I wouldn't expect them to use any stories directly.

I never read past the Zahn novels, but a lot of people like the kids and all so I wouldn't mind if they used them. Of course I suppose they wouldn't be kids at this point but w/e. But I've no interest in straight up adaptations of the books.

I still think that they should just officially claim SPACE BALLS as Star Wars VII....

best part of bounty hunter game was the cheat code for infinite jetpack. because what's the fun of a jetpack if you can only use it briefly.

I have fond memories of that Bounty Hunter game. As a matter of fact, I should have the PS2 copy around here somewhere...

I would be surprised if they didn't.

They'll be respectful to the universe ROTJ and everything that happened before it but I can't see them paying much attention to the books. They'll be writing their own sequels, not adapting anyone else's.

I fully expect to see Luke and Han with entirely different kids, no Mara Jade, the works.

It's whatever Lucas had in his notes used as the base to be augmented however Kennedy/Ardnt/Abrams see fit. For all we know, they or Lucas himself liked a couple of aspects of the EU and integrated those things somehow, however minor.

But yeah, these are original stories.

By following that route they pretty much codename the entire thing as an alternate universe/dimension much like what Abrams did with Star Trek. The alternate dimension thing works well with Trek, not so much here with Star Wars which follow a singular cannon timeline. It's pretty much someone's whacky AU fan fiction come to life.

One does not simply rewrite the entire post-ROTJ era and scrap everything like the Thrawn Trilogy/Yuuzhan Vong invasion/Mara Jade/Darth Caedus/Jedi Knight video games/Legacy of the Force comics etc.

Look, all I'm saying is that when they say "original story" it could mean a number of things. They could still very well include EU characters such as Mara Jade(or not depending if the timeline they chose is after her death) and the real children of the Skywalker/Solo clan(Jaina, Jacen, Anakin and Ben).

Like I said earlier, there is STILL room for originality within a period of time which already has a good amount of pre-existing material. I mean look at theClone Wars tv series it introduced many new and reintroduced characters and original stories we never though could fit in a time period like this(Ahsoka and Darth Maul as well as the Ghosts of Mortis story arc, that was probably the most original and interesting story of the whole show yes?).

Remember when we all had that "WTF" thought when Anakin got himself a Padawan in the tv series back in 2008 and probably raged they're messing with the timeline and raged how they're making it too kid-friendly by introducing her? 5 seasons later and now we all like Ahsoka and eagerly await what's next and whether she lives to see Luke Skywalker & the Rebel Alliance and possibly make it to Ep VII.

They could very well set the whole thing well after all those other events such as the Yuuzhan Vong went down. I never said that they had to adapt but what they'd do is simply pick a timeline in the established universe and go from there as they did in Clone Wars but on a live-action scale.

This is an awesome poster done by Adam Schickling for Star Wars Episode VII based off of Drew Struzan Original Trilogy posters.

I hope we see Luke with Mara Jade & Ben Skywalker in Episode VII.

Luke looks like a cross between Yoda and an Ewok in that poster. Everyone else looks great.


Hope they have Luke with a beard for Episode 7.

Great poster, but Luke looks like a cooked lobster.

Edit: Chewie also looks like he has been given the ultimate Millennium Falcon toy for Christmas.

I see what you're talking about. I think Lando and Chewie look the most like themselves.

I like the beard idea for Luke. If nothing else it'll save on make up.

If you look at the bottom it says "New Star Wars Secrets". I wonder if we will get some tidbits?
