I think I've stated before that Lucasfilm and Disney have both said it will be an all-original story and George Lucas has basically called the EU (everything aside from what Lucas has produced) a bunch of fan-fiction. While I have read and enjoyed several books, I've always questioned how canon everything would be considered.

My mind immediately went to movies like "The Wind that Shakes the Barley" where people throw off some Imperial oppressor and then there's a new power struggle among the newly-freed people.

Hmm interesting, yeah the past couple years the flood gates have been opened on "fan-fiction" so its impossible to figure out how it all fits together (graphic novels, comics, etc). If episodes VII-IX, lol, are really true reboots, that will be scary.

From what I've read years back, the story follows the 2 droids. it's not necessarily readily apparent, since they are not the "main characters".

I've heard that Luke, Leia, etc. could have cameos, but I've also read that the story happens a bit past that point, with a new threat looming. Supposedly with the past character's Children being the new main characters. Luke's kids, Leia's twins, etc.

I'm hoping for a bit less CGI and a bit more WRITING in the new movies. I'd love for the next movie to start with a mindblowingly evil event that shatters the peace since the collapse of the Empire.

Also, I've read that Zahn's books are not to be figured into the new movies. So no, what was his name?? Thrawn??

Yeah, the Thrawn trilogy would have been nice, but I had read that the treatments George did for episodes 7-9 weren't allowed to be covered in the books. And the rumors are that the script will be written using those treatments so no Thrawn (he would have been a cool villain!)

Carrie Fisher's gotta be in it, as Yoda said: "There.........is...........a....NOTHER!"

I imagine they can do a good job of it. I'm lowering expectations the more I think about it, I'd rather be surprised than disappointed.
