141AdamFri 2nd Nov 2012 The Expanded Universe is too expansive. It is a huge mess before the planned story arcs (New Jedi Order and the ones afterward when I stopped reading). I doubt they will straight up adapt any of the books. It would be a pain to stay faithful to the books. They are going to want to make their own stories, but there just isnt a place in the timeline for some grandiose adventure that hasnt already been told, or without the need to reference stuff that has already happened in the books, leaving nonreaders in the dark. More likely they'll pick and choose elements as they go along. I would not be surprised to see Mara Jade worked in, and maybe Thrawn, too. What I read about Disney's plans though compared this more to James Bond, with a movie every few years, not necessarily a trilogy format at all. I dont expect much here... But i am intrigued nonetheless. Can they really do any worse than Phantom Menace? Edited on Fri 2nd November, 2012 @ 02:05 by Adam Come on, friends, To the bear arcades again.
