LOL! Axia. I hear ya about that.

Those are just some examples taken from the EU. The Clone Wars cartoon, which is considered official canon in the SW timeline, uses a lot of shit from the EU.

Also have to give credit to the old 80s West End Games RPG. That sucker had a lot of material that became part of the expanded universe, which was then used by authors for some of the novels. Just check the SW Expanded Universe info on wiki.

As I said, it doesn't have to follow the books word per word as there is way too much to cover. but having some of the characters would be cool instead of restarting from scratch.

Although I would love to see the Zahn books as part of the official timeline. Say these movies take place 30 years after Jedi. Bring in the Solo kids, Mara Jade. Go from there. Then develop an animated series as prequels to these new movies. So basically, what happened to Han, Luke, Leia and Lando during those 30 years and use some of Zahn's work.

There could be a television series in between Episodes 6 and 7 that could shown those kids born.

This speculation is KILLING me!! I want to know who they'll be casting NOW!

 Why not use EU stories? All the fans knew the Harry Potter books, and the movies still made a crap load of money... Twighlight and the Hunger Games have done alright... So... why not?

I would still be in 100% favor of the Zahn Triology being done as a cartoon... Please!

Axia, but it's not casting news, it's two actors auditioning news...The twins being in this does not surprise me if they are following the story line after Return of the jedi...It all looks good so far to me...

I hope Chloë Grace Moretz gets a role, she is the new chick action star!

@kinetoscope

I think it's because there is way too much in the EU. It's the same reason why Marvel movies do not directly adapt comic storylines. Too much of it too cover.

 @axia777 I'm sorry the new Star Treks beside being about as disrespectful as possible to the core material. Is poorly constructed. Transformers is more coherant in it's narritive. 

Worse Abrams has a history of plot holes, poor long term planning and rediculous Dues Ex plot devices to fix issues with his stories which he likes to medel with, rather then writing well. 

Not to mention his seziure inducing lens flare. 

Abrams is a music video director at best.

 Yes, I know mlaforce. All I am doing is speculating. IF the twins get included then it would kick ass as their whole brother VS sister war is EPIC as hell.

 Leo Howard should be one of the kids in the flick.
