THE LEGENDARY STAR WARS EXPANDED UNIVERSE TURNS A NEW PAGE

For over 35 years, the Expanded Universe has enriched the Star Wars experience for fans seeking to continue the adventure beyond what is seen on the screen. When he created Star Wars, George Lucas built a universe that sparked the imagination, and inspired others to create. He opened up that universe to be a creative space for other people to tell their own tales. This became the Expanded Universe, or EU, of comics, novels, videogames, and more.

While Lucasfilm always strived to keep the stories created for the EU consistent with our film and television content as well as internally consistent, Lucas always made it clear that he was not beholden to the EU. He set the films he created as the canon. This includes the six Star Wars episodes, and the many hours of content he developed and produced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. These stories are the immovable objects of Star Wars history, the characters and events to which all other tales must align.

Now, with an exciting future filled with new cinematic installments of Star Wars, all aspects of Star Wars storytelling moving forward will be connected. Under Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy's direction, the company for the first time ever has formed a story group to oversee and coordinate all Star Wars creative development.

"We have an unprecedented slate of new Star Wars entertainment on the horizon," said Kennedy. "We're set to bring Star Wars back to the big screen, and continue the adventure through games, books, comics, and new formats that are just emerging. This future of interconnected storytelling will allow fans to explore this galaxy in deeper ways than ever before."

In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an element of surprise and discovery for the audience, Star Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe. While the universe that readers knew is changing, it is not being discarded. Creators of new Star Wars entertainment have full access to the rich content of the Expanded Universe. For example, elements of the EU are included in Star Wars Rebels. The Inquisitor, the Imperial Security Bureau, and Sienar Fleet Systems are story elements in the new animated series, and all these ideas find their origins in roleplaying game material published in the 1980s.

DISNEY PUBLISHING WORLDWIDE AND RANDOM HOUSE ANNOUNCE RELAUNCH OF STAR WARS ADULT FICTION LINE

Following today's announcement of Lucasfilm's new unified storytelling approach, Disney Publishing Worldwide is proud to announce their first step into that larger world, beginning with Del Rey Books. The publishing program will feature new adult fiction novels set in the beloved galaxy far, far away, and will be closely connected to the cinematic entertainment currently in development at Lucasfilm.


The first novel to benefit from this deeper collaboration is Star Wars: A New Dawn, by bestselling author John Jackson Miller. Set prior to the events of the forthcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, this novel tells the story of how two of the lead characters of the series, Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla, came to cross paths. To tell this important backstory, Miller benefited from contact with series executive producers Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Greg Weisman, who together ensured this tale will be part of the Star Wars canon of storytelling going forward. It is scheduled for hardcover and eBook release on September 2, 2014.


Following Star Wars: A New Dawn, the all-new Star Wars fiction line will continue with the following 2014/2015 titles:



For more information and for looks at the covers of all four new titles announced above, please visit the Del Rey Star Wars Books Facebook page at Facebook.com/StarWarsBooks.

Yeah. :) Gary Oldman was rumored to be up for a role in Star Wars VII. I don't think he is interested...

CS: And Mr. Oldman, you've done quite a lot of work in the genre. Is it something that specifically appeals to you?
Oldman: No, it doesn't appeal to me at all.


CS: You don't like science fiction?
Oldman: No, not really. I mean, I liked "Planet of the Apes" growing up. I have to say -- and I know this is sinful of me. Blasphemous even -- I can't watch -- I just don't get "Star Wars." It's just not for me. I never read "Batman" comics. I'm not into wizards. I haven't thought about "Planet of the Apes" since I saw it as a kid.


Then again he did mention he did stuff like Fifth Element to get food on the table. Perhaps it will be like Hugo Weaving in Transformers...

Yeah, it's not something we as the viewing public like to think about, but it is a reality that the actors in some of the movies we like often see those roles quite differently than we do. A lot of the time, it just a job for them.

Ugh.

When they do something new, I wish it was mostly new.

I just don't want it to detract from Luke's role. Han is Han and he's a fun character, but it's Jedi Master Luke I've been waiting since 1983 to see, not old man Han.

Not that there's anything wrong with old men or with Han, mind you.

A bit late but Happy Star Wars Day/May the Fourth!

First saw Star Wars (not yet called Spisode IV: A New Hope) in 1977 at the Queen Kapiolani and Cinerama theaters. Yes I saw it many times. :)

The theater in which I saw it no longer exists. I had never before seen a line that long to get into the theater. I've never seen so many people who were all nearly stabbed by a child.

Not as clumsy or random as a blaster.

Yeah both of the theaters I saw it in are no longer in existence. :-(
