George Lucas/Expanded Universe

Does any one know if George Lucas has any plans for the Expanded Universe? I was just thinking that with TV shows The Clone Wars and the up coming live action show it would be cool if he did something for The Old Republic era besides just comics and video games.

Nothing else that we know about. I'm sure we will be getting more in the future, milking Star Wars for every cent it's worth.

One thing for sure, if George knows it will make money, he will probably do it. I see more kid-like Star Wars franchises in the future.

Some of the "Film Only" crowd like to take throw away comments like (GL) "The EU isn't my Platform", as "The EU isn't legitimate", so when discussing things like this you sometimes get those types shooting you down. My personal view is he has agreed for this stuff to be made and is free to delve in to it as he pleases, in fact you'd be surprised how much of the Prequel Trilogy is heavily influenced, if not completely created in the EU... so he kinda does use EU, it's just no longer EU when he uses it hehe./rant

Regarding the Old Republic, I think it's a bit to specialized for casual film goers. and to be honest Georges spin on it would probably retcon everything we love in a very care bear saturday morning style, so leave him to his done to death 3 year period we know as the Clone Wars.

Well that game, The Old Republic, is gonna be coming out...not sure if Lucas has anything to do with it, but that's the era you're thinking of.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
