They'll borrow stuff from the novels and comics.

There's too much good stuff in those properties NOT to take liberties with it.

If this is true,why not? The Star Wars: Legacy comic proved you can tell a Star War story without Vader,Han Solo,Chewbacca,Leia,Luke(sorta) or even R2 D2 and C3PO.

Whereas I wasn't interested in a film adaptation of the Thrawn trilogy, and you shouldn't be either. Because Thrawn takes place, what, 5 years after Jedi? Means Luke and Leia should be what, mid 20's? Han would be mid 30's?

Ok then. Your choice would be having people in their 50's and 60's playing 20 and 30's, or a recast. And does anyone think a Han Solo not played by Ford would be acceptable?

Well I'm not sure Ford could play Han Solo again.

Doesn't Lucas have plots for six more movies?
Just use those as the basis.

The novels, comics, games etc.are just ancillary products.

These stories have already been told. You can go read about the return of the Emperor, General Thrawn, and the Yuuzhan Vong war right now. Any movies based on those properties would inevitably be compared to them and found wanting. Better to go in a new direction and tell a story that we haven't heard yet.

I'm interested to see what Disney does with the franchise, particularly with Lucas working mostly on the sidelines. A direct sequel to the original trilogy could be interesting, but recasting the major characters could cause a fan backlash. Something set farther in the future might be a better idea.

I imagine we'll see C-3P0 and R2-D2 in the new films no matter what. They lend continuity to the story, and, being droids, they can still take part in a story set decades or centuries after RoTJ. I'd also love to see Mark Hamill as a Force ghost Luke Skywalker in the next film.

I only said that as I thought that was the one novel that got the Lucas seal of approval.
Killer n64 game to boot!

I thought the prequels already wiped out a ton of the continuity from the books anyways.
