Interesting, as I haven't read the books based around the original story I wonder how they will do this movie.

Well, apparently, all expanded universe stuff is completely renounced.  All games, books etc... never happened so you are probably OK having not read the books.  Going forward, all expanded universe stuff will be more tightly controlled and considered cannon.  This is also why they likely canned ALL on-going SW projects after the merger.

Where did they say they renounced all expanded universe content? I don't doubt you, I just hadn't seen that yet.

OK, so I may have been a little off but here is the break down.  All post-Return of the Jedi EU is up in the air.  No one is beholden to it and NONE of it is considered cannon.  Official cannon are the 6 movies and Clone Wars cartoon.  Everythinhg moving forward will be interconnected and concidered official cannon.  This includes books, comics, games, movies and more.  All other EU stuff may or may not be used as they see fit moving forward.

So basically, all EU stuff is sort of disowned.  Or at least not officially cannon.

Ahh, makes sense. Can't read the article at work but I will. I suppose that makes sense with new movies coming out. Kind of how Star Trek was like "Oh time travel none of the cannon applies anymore!" Opens up the potential movies a lot.

Yeah, being beholden to the EU ties you hands moving forward.  I think it's for the best and I like how they want to interconnect everything moving forward.  Should make for a good experience.

But the Heir to the Empire stuff is amazing. If it wasn't for that, the continues EU would have been nothing but kid stuff for merchandizing. Then again, this is Disney now...

I would still like to see a high dollar animated production of Heir to the Empire with the original actors voices. You could even use Mark Hammil's voice talents for Thrawn too. Now that would be epic!

Abrahms will destroy Tatooine in the past and Luke was never born, but it's OK because it's an alternate universe.

Really though I hear the new movies are not based on any EU novels, but Zhan was briefed by Lucas on the story treatments so characters like Mara Jade and Thrawn were probably not pulled out of thin air.

True they will not be based on any eu but I will put money in it that there will be plenty of eu stuff pulled and put into the movie. Should be good to get the starwars movies back on track if they do it right. With Lucas on board and I think these should be great.

Though I understand the reason for ignoring all post-jedi canon, I'm a bit saddened that the 50 plus books I've read never happened.

That dark haired long faced guy looks like Thrawn to me.  Could he be the Chiss Grand Admiral?  I think Lando will reappear in episode 8.  I expect we will see Mara Jade at some point.   She was a good character.

He's probably Lando's love child. Drama with Hans children ya know.

Not the black dude.  The horse faced guy Adam Driver could totally be Thrawn.
Daisy Ridley could me Mara Jade but she's way too you for Hamill.
I hope they don't make Boyega related to Lando.  Or that Naboo security guy.  Maybe Mace Windu, but that would still be cheesy.  That galaxy needs more women and diverse skin tones.
