Coruscant first appeared in the Expanded Universe and was called such for the first time in Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire in 1991. Coruscant wasn't seen on screen until the 1997 Special Edition release of Return of the Jedi, and then later appeared in the prequel trilogy. Coruscant is therefore one of the few EU elements that made its way in to the films.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_C-canon_elements_in_the_films

Also: The Prequels didn't retcon much of worth from the stuff that came out prior to TPM anyway. And what retcons exist, are mostly fairly minor affairs. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Retcon


So i'd say there is still a LARGE amount of story that can be drawn from. And I doubt they can come up with anything on their own that is anywhere near as good as the Thrawn Trilogy. Or any of the other 50+ some odd novels out there that expand the story beyond ROTJ.


The point I was making is that the original trilogy is good not because of the universe it's in, but because of the characters and the personal nature of the story.

The prequels showed what the Star Wars story, by itself and without an actual soul, looks like. All the bureaucracy, all the politics, none of that stuff matters to anyone.

In before urvile ejaculates!


In my defense, I've spent all of maybe an hour with the LEGO franchise :P

Seems like the Square/Disney mashups possibilities are endless now. Crossing my fingers for my dream team: Darth Vader, Gizmoduck, the Bubble Bobble dinos, Deadpool, and Metal Slime

WAIT A MINUTE! Just thought of something, does this mean that Disney also owns all the Lucasarts properties?
If so, I support Pixar (not sure if they're still connected to Disney) making a Monkey Island movie.

There is such movie by Disney. It's called "Pirates of the Carribean"

Yes, from what I understand, they own it all. So Indiana Jones among other things.


Okay. This could be good. The Original Trilogy will always be the Original and George Lucas got to finish up his merchandise-millions (I imagine he still retains the rights to the merchandise, by the way, which coupled with the backing of Disney would mean a holy-shit level of royalties). Now, there can be some fresh blood to take on a series which (as Expanded Universe fans can attest) has been begging for true expansion for decades.


Actually, for FOUR BILLION... I'm pretty sure Lucas had to give up everything. I mean holy shit, that's a a big chunk of cash.


I don't know, are there more specific details on him retaining any rights? They said he would consult on Episode 7, but that may be a courtesy and political move rather than part of the contract.

Pixar Maniac Mansion, please?

pretty, pretty, pretty please?


At least Pixar's Day of the Tentacle, right?
At least!





Also, i'm not sure how i feel about SW7.
I mean.. it's really necessary?


But then again, the SW universe, is a cluster fuck of side-stories.
Between all the novels, movies and games..
I kinda wish for a new and decent sw movie. But, some commenters on slashdot are mentioning a reboot.
Which, if happens is going to be too lame..
too fucking lame.

Yup, writing a check for FOUR BILLION was the price Lucas would accept to STFU. They'll give him a token "creative consultant" title and make him sit in the corner. These francises are no longer his toys, and I believe this also makes the live action TV show that he said he had 100 hours worth of scripts written for (bullshit) dead in the water.

And, as for a reboot, please no. Just tell a new story with new characters. You have a whole damn universe to play with.

I got too burned by the prequels to get too excited, but if someone other than Lucas is writing it at least has some chance of being good.

Best.

Also, I definitely had that idea this morning about Monkey Island. Or at least the states of any of their video games.

But technically, who owns Monkey Island now? Didn't Telltale do some sort of Monkey Island games? Were they just licensing it out? Were those games even any good?

The rights belong to LucasArts, i.e. to LucasFilm. Also, you guys fight like a cow.
