Just DO IT!

The only thing canon in my book are the films so I don't care if they ignore everything outside of the movies.

 Many of the books were great reading, especially Zahn's. That being said, I agree whole-heartedly with Wiseguy on this. I absolutely do not care if they go in their own direction or follow the books.

All I want is that they make good movies this time around. I absolutely do not want these made as the sci fi versions of PotC, and I cant help but at least partially expect that to happen.

I actually wish thy were doing films that weren't related to the original story. The SW universe is huge and there is plenty of room to make some great movies.

I remember reading some Star Wars stories, or story concepts, that Lucas had allegedly written years ago as idea for Episodes VII-IX.  The stories involved Luke finally turning to the Dark Side and coming full circle.  I don't know if it was all a hoax or whatever, but it was pretty compelling stuff.  I'd actually be pretty hyped about a story arc where Luke became the villain and eventually Emperor.

This Pollack dude who wrote Lucas's "unofficial" biography was puportedly allowed to read the outlines for Episodes 7-12, under the condition he signed a confidentiality agreement.  He said 7,8 and 9 were the most exciting and followed the continued adventures of Luke Skywalker.

Luke, in the books, never becomes the Emperor. He becomes a servant of the Emperor to fool Palpatine into believing that he went over to the darkside.  Thnen he and the rest of his crew punk the Emperor.

 I call total bullshit on this.

I liked that series by Anderson.

Wasn't talking about the books.  Was talking about what Lucas allegedly wrote like 40 years ago.

But again, I'm a movie buff.  Never read comics or anything.  Just remember reading a few years ago what was basically the entire story arc of Episodes 7-9 that Lucas had written.  Allegedly...
