IMO, this is plain ****ing stupid because there is some nice source elements in the book series, but if a corporate identity or a writer is too arrogant to recognize that for the sake to be "original" then that's a good way to **** up. A perfect example is how George Lucas handled the prequels and ignoring good material that he could've used from the book series.

there wasnt anything there. Lucas kept the timeline for books off limits to pre Epi 4 until PM was almost finished. the solo trilogy is one of the few excptions i can think of.

Fans do.

A well-done Zahn trilogy would rake in mad cash and get great reviews, as well as introduce several really interesting characters.

I'm a fan. I've read every one of Zahn's books and feel like his original trilogy was his weakest effort.

The bottom line is that those "fans" you speak of maybe equal 2% of potential movie goers, especially when reaching out to a new generation.

Six through ten year old kids don't read the EU. I have my doubts that 10-18 year olds read the EU, at least in a significant amount of numbers.

The lore the books offer is ridunkulous and would introduce a whole new slew of characters for the new generation to fall in love with and covet. It's perfect. The movies can't be worse than the recent trilogy.

I agree with that and my apologies for missing it.

But that said, the average movie goer isn't tied in to that mythos and neither are the screenwriters, producers, etc.

I re-read the original Zahn trilogy about 10 years ago, after initially reading it when it was released and it did not stand the test of time.

EPISODE VII Will Have Harrison Ford Coming Back As Han Solo!!!

Well, it was only a matter of time before this news became a bit more concrete, but, according to El Mayimbe over at Latino Review, who has an exceptional batting average when it comes to his scoop accuracy, the deal is done for Harrison Ford to reprise his role as Han Solo in STAR WARS - EPISODE VII.

This was rather inevitable with Ford commenting that he'd be open to a return back around the time the STAR WARS sale to Disney was announced, complete with those plans for three new films being made in the core saga. For a guy who's tried awfully hard to distance himself from the Original Trilogy over the years to come around like that with willing participation, you knew The Mouse and Lucasfilm were going to make sure they locked up the beloved smuggler for whatever story J.J. Abrams will be kicking off in EPISODE VII. Plus, with rumors of a Han Solo origin story being floated around as one of the ideas for a STAR WARS stand-alone, it only makes sense to get the character fresh in people's minds, particularly younger generations of potential STAR WARS fans, who may not be as familiar with Solo.
