it's very difficult to pick a fav. so I generally pick #1 & #2 for each book, comic, game, movie, ect., like Rogue One...Chirrut and K-2SO, without those characters, the movie would have been a huge bore, COMPLETELY scene stealing, lovable characters, making people in the theater totally blubber when they were killed, the SW universe that includes the EU is just way too huge to whittle out just one over all winner

shrann87 lpossit: on the off hand that it is revealed Ben Solo was adopted at birth, (real parents being Luke and Mara), who would be the top actors for Master Jade ??? now remember, she not just a red headed, super hottie, but an intelligent and fierce fighter, and far from the cheerleader type, so take that into consideration when picking....NO Johansson, Lawrence or Watson types, I'm thinking Michelle Waterson (MMA & acting) or Alexandra Albu (MMA) for the younger flashbacks, and my #1 Jamie Lee Curtis or #2 Sela Ward for the modern/current aged mom around Luke's age, any other great ideas ???
and God help Ron Howard if he screws up "Solo", I love his movies, but they've all been originals I think, he's trying to take on a HUGE endeavor of a movie with the words "Star" & "Wars" attatched, and i don't think he's ever really done a huge action type flick....good luck my old friend !!!

Splinter of the Mind's Eye in 1981

Oompa1987 replied to The first EU novel you read 2 years ago

Mine was either "Jedi Search" from the Jedi Academy Trilogy, or "The Mandalorian Armor." I honestly cannot remember which came first, though I admit I like Jedi Search a lot better.

So I am just curious How many of us are in this "Bring Back Legends/EU Rebellion" movement?

Jedigrandmaster I didn't know there was a a movement, but I'm all for it. After investing in thousands of hours reading EU material and hundreds of dollars in acquiring over 125 EU novels, to have it suddenly 'erased' as canon really hurts. 2 years ago

shrann87 I'm not completely against non-canonical stories myself as long as it does not try to rewrite what made the Skywalker saga, (this does not include the new movies (ep. 7-9), as they are a continuation and not trying to change story DIRECTLY established by the previous 6 movies only, but I fear "Solo" will harm that, though "The Mandalorian" would go completely on its own tangent with a character who is know only for two things...a contract bounty hunter, DNA source (Boba's dad) for the clones, so Boba is (movie wise) is a nobody with no (movie based) history. so whatever disney decides to make as spinoffs or just plain out the door new world, if they keep that in mind, they may not COMPLETELY make the SW franchise a George A. Romero type thing...(made a couple great movies, but has been making a dozen+ uber-crap zombie flicks trying to keep the word "Dead" alive for a few quick bucks every couple years...Disney's Night of the Living Franchise > 6 days ago

shrann87 in defense of future Star Wars movies (but not defense of disney !!!), when sourcing a live action 90-120 min. movie from printed and/or gaming material, it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to make a perfect conversion and it IS 100% IMPOSSIBLE to make EVERYONE happy when it comes to established and loved franchises, it is also IMPOSSIBLE to to accurately convert other media sources to live action 90-120 min. avg. movie/tv without changing, altering, leaving out and/or adding things as well as some "creative license", try to take that into consideration when going to see a movie, that is why I went into ep. 7 & Rogue One as a person who's never seen a Star Wars movie, just wanting to see a promising sci-fi movie, just knowing basic info like Luke is a Jedi, I Went to see those without any bias at all and LOVED them both, and will do all future movies/tv the same way, you might see them differently, my wife does not want to see Justice League because of little details like Aquaman looking sooo different, I told her "do you really want to see the Flash and Aquaman running around in red tights (Flash) or perfect, short blonde hair and full length yellow/green scale leotard ???, she sort of took my point, I am huge Justice League fan, but am greatly looking forward to the movie big time despite the story and image inconsistencies, so go see a movie unbiased, not a movie demanding the perfect diamond right out the gate based on impossible odds

Gallifreyan-Jedi Hey Silmerion, Thank you for that link. I think I have seen that site before, but none-the-less it is a very helpful site if you are into the classic EU that Lucasfilm/Disney has branded under “Legends” banner. May The Force Be With You! 2 years ago

For my eighth documentarian style blog I am taking a short detour from my Star Wars and Doctor Who Mythology series, in order to revisit the controversy of Disney’s invalidation of the Star Wars: Expanded Universe (EU). I first start out by examining the latest developments with Disney’s current Star Wars projects, which include Star Wars: Rebels and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. After giving my assessment on Rebels and Episode VII: TFA I go on to express my angst with finding out... Show more

I think the great thing about the EU is indeed that authors felt free to create brand new stories and characters.
