    Well, he would do a better job than Lucas, so I'm happy.

    In any just universe Lucas would have been killed by meteorites after Empire Strikes Back.

    I am hoping this is going to be about Grand Admiral Thrawn. If it is - I will be SUCH A FANBOY

    I kind of enjoyed the new Star Trek movie, for what it was, but I can't understand how anyone wants to watch another given how shallow the whole thing was. The plot, actors, special effects, jokes, you name it, all seemed to be stretched thin in one movie--I expect you're in for a major disappointment when it gets fleshed out.

    I just hope and pray this doesn't turn out to be Star Wars: "Super 8" style

    It won't be. No Star Wars movie has ever been about its source. Lucas et al are terrible.

    Just bought this. I actually hated all 6 star wars movies, love the Clone Wars TV series, and have enjoyed most of the books I've read. So I am excited.

    You hated all the movies and still bothered to read the books? I can't imagine wanting to read extended universe fiction for a sci-fi series I disliked.

    I think they have said explicitly that the stories will be new.

    So no Thrawn (even though that seems like it would be the best choice for current fans).

    That's my understanding too. What will be interesting is if the stories they tell conflict with the Extended Universe. Right now Thrawn is "canon," but we could well see that get washed away depending on where they take these new movies.

    Maybe "hated" was a strong word. I don't hold them up as some panacea of science fiction that uber nerds do. I wasn't around to appreciate how supposedly innovative Star Wars is, and I find the story kind of droll in the movies. I don't mind learning about the extended universe through the novels, though. They do a much better job of characters, plot management, etc. than movies do. Like I said, I don't mind the universe: the Clone Wars TV series goes into decent depth on some of the stuff, and I have watched every episode (at least twice).

    I can't see how it won't conflict.

    They have to break some storylines if they want to do something different.

    Did they actually say it was going to be set after the original trilogy?

    It seems like the most well known Star Wars characters they could still put in a movie (Darth Vader, the Emperor, Yoda) would all be wasted if that was the case.
