Han Solo saying "I know." when Leia says she loves him is a million times better than Anakin and Padme's "I love you more...No I LOVE YOU MORE" horseshit. George Lucas was extremely lucky, most of all because he had people that would tell him when his ideas sucked. Without that, you got the prequel trilogy. There's plenty of directors who grew up loving star wars, who will want to make a great movie and not just cash in.
Read Darth Plagueis and you'll find out exactly why the Trade Fedration was blocking trade to Naboo. Great ****ing book

I don't think that is true. Either way I would expect some variance, but I would not expect a complete distortion of the timeline and events. Otherwise there is a large portion of the franchise that falls to dust.

Darth Plagueis in particular fits snug against the Phantom Menace and about completely explains how Darth Sidious comes to be.

Dude, it's completely true. The EU is not canon.

Lucas has already confirmed that the next trilogy has nothing to do with the EU.

It his story, BTW. Not Thrawn or Jedi Academy, etc.

It still has to fit in somewhere in the timeline he's allowed to be created. He's also said in the past that the the story of the Skywalkers is over, and he also said that there would never be an Episode 7.

That's why it's the Expanded Universe.

Anything that happens outside of the movies and Clone Wars cartoon is not canon.

Well, Disney bought Lucasfilm and the rights to the those characters, so they can do whatever they'd like with them.

The bottom line is that the books, comics, games, etc. are not canon and should not be treated as such.

Continuity is different than canon.

Meh. They should just CG-treat the old farts and go with the kids/Legacy era.

Seeing Vader is always good, but.....

I've read about 40 of the novels. I used to hate reading books, but using these got me started and now I read a great deal.

I really recommend the Darth Bane books, All the Zahn books, Shatterpoint(Mace Windu), Darth Plageuis, Revan, Dark Lord Rising, Death Star, and the Kevin J Anderson books.

JFC I wonder how much Lucas got just by signing off on letting people write books with the StarWars brand on them.

Well, that's the thing: He basically signed off and let the authors do as they chose. There was a novel division of Lucasfilm that basically helped to formulate the EU, but even those guys ****ed up.

Timothy Zahn was very vocal at one point about how "crazy" the EU had become and tried to "reel it back in", as it were, with some of his novels.

The bottom line is that if it didn't happen in the movies or the Clone Wars series, it didn't happen.

Disney and the writer's they've hired have absolutely no obligation to the EU, whatsoever. And according to George, who's been quoted on several occasions, it's more of a "Parallel Universe" than it is the real Star Wars universe.

Don't expect anything from those novels to show up in future Star Wars movies, except for maybe a planet name or reference here or there, if that.

I expect a full & all out rapid-fire turd shelling from the Disney collective anus with the addition of any more episodes.

TBH I never knew there were more than 5 or 6 Star Wars books...I'm shocked to hear there are more than 40.

Any idea how much George got for each "blessing"?

This is difficult to answer quickly.

George Lucas, for all of his faults, not only re-energized the Hollywood film making community, he created the summer blockbuster and changed film making forever.

Not only did he demand merchandising rights, he retained a much higher percentage of the box office gross than anyone film maker before him. The merchandising rights to the Star Wars toys earned him an unprecedented amount of money, which he in turn, funded other ventures.

He's an editor at heart. He funded and was responsible for the first digital editing system, which he called "Droid". Because he was so heartbroken of the failure of his marriage and unable to think or work (and subsequently allowed his film school teacher to direct "The Empire Strikes Back" and another friend to direct that piece of ****ing shit "Return of the Jedi"), he sold his idea and program to a couple of guys that turned that program into AVID, which for more than 20 years, was THE digital editing standard.

Later, he created a division of Lucasfilm that was dedicated to animation only. But he was convinced by his friend Steve Jobs that it could do better elsewhere, so he sold Pixar to Jobs for $10 million.

I could go on and on and on about George but the bottom line is that the last thing that he ever thinks about is money, especially the money he's earning from dopey novelizations of a universe he created 40 years ago.
