View Full Version : NJO striken from canon! Lucas reveals true post-ROTJ events

05-17-2005, 03:16 PM

When pressed for details about the fates of favorite and not-so-favorite characters, Lucas had this to say first about Han Solo and Leia: "Han and Leia probably did get married. They settled down. She became a senator, and they got a nice little house with a white picket fence. Han Solo is out there cooking burgers on the grill."

"Okay, so enough talk about Jar-Jar having kids."
:D :D :D
Spot on. :p
Let's not talk more about Jar Jar. The fact he survives the whole thing is disturbing enough to know. :D ;) :p

Anyway, he does say, they probably got married, meaning, he's not sure what happenes to them, just like he's not sure how Anikin got that scar. He definatly didn't slip in the bathtube. ;) :p

Not that I'm complaining if the NJO were nullified. :p

heh... trust Prime to be first off the mark with this :) I read that too, and it is obvious that George was having a joke. Im sure he's not entirely concerned about what happens in EU, but he definitely knows about the NJO, as these are clearly documented as his decisions :

*Chewie being killed
*Anakin Solo getting killed

at the end of the day, people either love or hate the NJO. Overall, by the end of it, it has prolonged EU rather than shortened it - which would have been the case if authors kept recycling plots about superweapons and long lost imperial military masterminds...

As ROTS will pass us by soon, the post NJO onslaught will begin. Hopefully more fans will get back into the EU, even those who gave NJO a miss :)
