It's confirmed! Episode 7 is NOT following the Expanded Universe Material:

Well, we know that, whatever the plot of Episode 7, George Lucas won't have a heavy hand in the day-to-day creation of it. He's apparently written the treatments for the films, but he won't produce or direct—an excellent opportunity for another visionary to jettison Jar Jar Binks out of an airlock permanently. As for the plot, Star Wars superfans have a theory on what they'll be seeing next. But I have a surprise for them: They're wrong. If you're a fan, you're definitely gonna want to read on.

First of all, you should know that there is an official canon concerning the Star Wars universe. Those stories cover the years after rebel victory (i.e., after Return of the Jedi). It's written in a series of books called the Thrawn Trilogy, by author Timothy Zahn. Die-hard Star Wars fans know the trilogy well, and they say that a big-screen adaptation of the first book, Heir to the Empire, would make the most logical Episode 7.

"Of all the speculation out there about the content of this new trilogy, that's the single most concrete idea," says Eric Geller of the fan site TheForce.net. "It's almost inevitable that the story will take place in the same time frame as those books." So what happens in "those books?"

Well, Luke Skywalker meets a real would-be assassin lady named Mara Jade, who was trained to avenge the Emperor by crushing Luke's pretty blond head. Instead, Jade falls for Luke and, a subsequent graphic novel, the two marry. Skywalker also has to deal with the fact that he's the only Jedi left, at least, for now, and he goes about trying to fix that.

Princess Leia and Han Solo also play heavily into the Thrawn Trilogy, popping out a pair of twins (of course) among other things. As for the name Thrawn, well, that refers to a grand admiral with imperial sympathies who takes over as the leader of the vanquished enemy faction.

So is that the basis for Episode 7 or not? I've heard directly from LucasFilm and other sources close to the picture, and they say: Definitely not.
"It's an original story," a LucasFilm source tells me. In other words, forget the Star Wars novels. Forget the graphic novels. Forget everything you think you know about what happens to Luke Skywalker. According to my sources, Episode 7 will literally be nothing you've ever seen or read before from the Star Wars universe. I also hear from several sources that, no matter what you may hear to the contrary, no director has been officially attached to the project.

Meanwhile, there isn't much news regarding the other big Star Wars projects currently in development.

A spoofy cartoon TV series, Detours, was announced in August, spearheaded by Seth Green and the other creators of Robot Chicken. No release dates or networks were revealed, but Disney has said that it envisions some sort of Star Wars presence on its Disney XD channel. I wouldn't be surprised if Detours landed there.

Lastly, there's the live action series, which has been bubbling around since 2008 and which is supposed to take place between Episodes 3 and 4, when Luke Skywalker is growing up.

As I reported earlier, Lucasfilm was still talking in enthusiastic terms about Star Wars: Underworld less than a year ago. At that time, the show had a lot of scripts in the can but no financing. But if there's one thing that Disney has, it's money. Still, insiders tell me it's too soon to expect any announcements on either series. Guess we'll just have to pray that Jar Jar has nothing to do with any of 'em.

So doesn't that mean it's official that movie verse canon =/= EU canon?

You know, I would be interested in hearing Ruinus thoughts on this.

This sounds like that the new movies would be jettisoning the EU, or perhaps rather the Thrawn books out of canon.

Wrong! It would be very easy to throw a Star Wars world stop into the game. If you can have Final Fantasy characters popping up, go to a world where you're a lion, join Captain Jack Sparrow, and visit Halloween Town, I really don't think Star Wars would be out of the question.

I agree with Bison. Not that I hate the EU because their are comics I love from it but some of them I am not interested in seeing on screen. I was hoping they would do a original story because that's the best way to go. Also with an original story people can't bitch they did it wrong or hate on any changes they make. A original take is a nice and refreshing start for a new set of films.

So who would they get as a Director? That will be very interesting to see who they attach to the project. 2015 is gone be a hell of a year for summer movies.

Apparently there are RUMORS that Disney is now looking to acquire Hasbro.

I'm not shocked about that rumor. I'm surprised they haven't bought Hasbro already. Hasbro would fit perfectly under Disney.

Except it works for Final Fantasy and Disney - both are entirely fantasy based (though except for the likes of Tron and whatnot - some sci fi thrown into it.)

Disney works magic, FF works magic... Star Wars works... midichlorians.
