so, basically it doesn't really matter if I skip around? i get that their's a long line of continuity and canon, but i'm not going to not understand anything if i pick and choose and don't start from the beginning?

just fyi - this is coming from a very basic fan, seen the originals several times, prequels a handful of times


Like Biscuit said, the Thrawn trilogy is the best.

Thanks for making me feel old. :)

For me, it was December 1993 when I read the first one, laying on the beach at Bellows Air Force Base in Hawaii. I remember because I couldn't go home for Christmas that year.

Good lord, I hope they don't bring Mark Hamil back as Luke...

http://movies.yahoo....-221654367.html


Entertainment Weekly sat down with Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy. Hamill revealed that he and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) had lunch with George Lucas in August. Lucas told them that he was planning to make another trilogy. "When he said, 'We decided we're going to do episodes VII, VIII, and IX,' I was just gobsmacked," Hamill said. Still, he had no idea the director was planning to sell his company. "Oh my gosh, what a shock that was," Hamill said.





This is some good news though...

"It was originally a 12-part saga," Pollock said. "The three most exciting stories were 7, 8, and 9. They had propulsive action, really interesting new worlds, new characters. I remember thinking, 'I want to see these three movies.'" He did say that the three films feature Luke Skywalker in his 30s and 40s. No other details were given due to a confidentiality agreement Pollock signed.

When it comes to who will direct the films, that's anybody's guess. Danny Boyle would make a nice choice. He directed the under-seen sci-fi flick "Sunshine." Steven Soderbergh would surely make an interesting film set in a galaxy far, far away. If producers want to go with a blockbuster kind of guy, how about James Cameron or Steven Spielberg? Other possibilities that would likely be met with approval (again, we're just guessing): Joss Whedon, J.J. Abrams, Rian Johnson. Notice we did not include Michael Bay?

Rian Johnson would be an amazing choice to direct.

Good. Get Lucas away from Star Wars before he ruins it even more.

Director - Brad Bird.

Books: The first Han Solo books by Brian Daley set the bar. Great characterization, action, plot, etc - the second one "Han Solos Revenge" is a bit meh, but the first and the third really capture the feel of that universe, which is amazing considered they were written in the 70s before everything got huge.

The "Han Solo Trilogy" is pretty great as well as it does a great job telling Hans backstory.

Splinter of the Minds Eye is a great book, screw the continuity. It was Alan Dean Fosters reward for ghostwriting the Star Wars novelization.

The whole Yhuzan Vong series (sp?) is for the most part really well done, give yourself a year to read it though.
