Thanks for the info, guys.
I wouldn't bother. Those books were have no influence on the new movies. It's not like a line of comic books that were "canon" to a particular superhero. Plus, they're really not that good and very dated.

The EU came into being because Lucasfilm saw a way to appease fans of the Star Wars universe but as George has said time again, it's a "different" universe than his Star Wars universe.

I expect Kathleen Kennedy to adopt the same attitude towards the EU. Maybe in 10 or 20 years, elements or movies "based on" Zahn's work might appear, but in all honesty, I doubt it.

They are irrelevant to the current universe but they are absolutely worth the read.

The ysalamiri were a great plot device to throw a monkey wrench into the force.

Personally I loved it.

A lot of people do. I'm not hard to please I guess. Of course I haven't read them since I was 16.

I'd bet dollars to donuts that if you re-read those first three books, you'd be enormously disappointed.

The premise was kind of cool, but he execution was lame. I think they were popular because they were the first licensed Star Wars books, ever.

Zahn's writing definitely improved over the years but that first trilogy was enormously disappointing on a second look.

Spoiler!

Maybe. Maybe not. When I read them I loved them. I haven't felt a need to go back and reread them. But I would still recommend reading them if you are a star wars fan at all.

It was ****ing retarded.

You have this wondrous galaxy that Lucas initially created in which there was this spiritual "Force" anyone could tap into, if they believed, which gave them super human power. The Force was all that was good in the universe.

So, what's the happens in the very first Lucasfilm sanctioned novels? Some jackass writes in a new species that negates the power of the Force. Negates it. Can't feel it. Can't get in touch with it. Basically, he created Kryptonite for Jedi and Force users.

That was BEYOND ****ing stupid. BEYOND.

Hence, new screenwriters and a new set of adventures in the Star Wars galaxy.

If you re-read them, you'd laugh your ass off at the stupidty and weak writing.

I tried to read them again while on vacation in Mexico back in like 2002/2003 and threw them in the trash.

They were just ridiculously bad.

So, when they release the 3D versions soon (are the dates available for those?) of the previously released movies, are those gonna be paid to Disney, or being they were already done they are Georges money?

I would guess that's gonna be Disney money, right?

I'm walking around with my feather-boa ysalmiri on.

You can't touch me, Jedi. Or Emperor. Or anyone else that has Force powers.

Feather-Boa Ysalamiri. I'm a Star Wars pimp.





Dumbest ****ing shit ever.

Fox retains the rights to all previous six films.

Disney purchased future rights, including merch.

Its silly that George would sign off on aspects like that and makes it even less surprising that part of Disneys concerns were that they would have full creative control and wouldn't need to stick to an of those storylines.

With that many books, it would be nearly impossible to not step on someones feet.

So the 4B bought them creative control of the StarWars brand going forward, but not previously done work?

Interesting.

They must be planning on consistently making new films every couple years, forever.

I bet they make that back on the next trilogy, though...after the box office, bluray and merchandising is all tallied up.

Everything else will be profit.

George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney. His close friend, Kathleen Kennedy, who had been running Lucasfilm for years, is still the head of Lucasfilm.

He was paid $4 billion dollars. $4 billion.

Disney purchased Lucasfilm, which includes the IP of Star Wars. They can now create animated and live action TV shows, feature films, vignettes - basically anything they'd like within the Star Wars universe, without paying any rights fees.

They're currently designing new rides for Disney Land and Disney World based on Star Wars. Those alone will massively help defray the cost to purchase the IP.

It's a goldmine. George didn't do anything with Star Wars because he was a afraid of public reaction.

He wilted after TPM. It crushed him.

I wonder if Mel Brooks will ever make SpaceBalls 2: the search for more money

At his age, I highly doubt it.
