    Good I'm tired of seeing all of these people posting about which Han Solo books they think his story will be based on or if Adrimal Thrawn will make an appearance in Episode VII. It's time to start fresh and remember that Star Wars isn't Star Trek, it's not about the aliens or the technology it's about the characters and the adventure.

    Well, I never wanted EU adaptations in the first place, so it's all good. Even if Eps7-9 contradict the already established EU stuff, I'll be bummed, but I'll understand. however, it will be a b**ch to seel all those books and comics.

    Kasdan isn't writing the ST, just spin-offs right? So I figure the Han films might contradict the old book series, but I sort of never cared too much for those anyway.

    I still kinda hate the EU will probably get the shaft, especially since it mans we'll probably be losing great characters like Mara Jade and Kyle Katarn, but I can hope that this all pans out to be better than all of those.

    I never liked a lot of the EU. Stuff like Palpatine making "force storms" were stupid and his resurrection completely ruins Anakins arc. Also I thought it was stupid how Hans like 70 and looks 40 and Obi-Wan in Episode IV is like 50 and looks 70. I liked some elements of it sure but it was never able to get it's footing the way the films, even the prequels, did imo.

    Any EU adaptations are a long way off...but some will likely get made some where down the line...

    Kasdan wasn't saying there won't be any EU films at all, he was just saying he won't be doing any EU films.
