If the decide to go afterwards, that would work too.
This is exactly what I was talking about. Post Yuuzhan Vong (which is the LotF series) would be the only way.

I stopped at invincible because I couldn't accept the fact that SPOILER ALERT!!! Jaina could kill Jacen is a duel and because he was my favorite character, so I have no clue what the series post LotF has looked like. LotF definitely could make for a good condensed trilogy but they would need to find a way to introduce characters and briefly explain the significance of NJO and the Dark Nest Crisis.

For those unfamiliar with these books, this is how the trio is portrayed

It's kind of sad that people will miss out on all the in between stuff, but it would be the most logical place to go with the movies. Most people that like Star Wars don't know all the stuff before Phantom Menace time frame. So going with stuff still associated with those characters would make the most sense.

I'm still holding out for a movie about the Dawn of the Jedi.

Yeah, but you can't really do movies about a 20 year old Luke and Leia and a 30 year old Han when the actors are never going to be convincing enough to pull it of. Essentially, we will get episodes 10, 11, and 12.

Do you mean an adopted sister? Luke and Leia were the only children from Anakin or Padme (unless there is some obscure piece of canon out there that states otherwise that I am unaware of).

Well, Lucas was making it all up as he went along anyway (he never had it all planned out like he initially said he did), so meh.

Luke was also suppose to finally confront the Emperor then and it would take place a few decades after RotJ. This is all story he thought before he finished the original trilogy and he allowed future writers to write new canon post RotJ. For the prequels, he was a lot more restrictive on the content prior to episode 4.

I imagine he abandoned all of this.

Actually Lucas was making it up as he went along. Which Gary Kurtz and Lucas himself admit to.

Yea, there's a lot of contradicting quotes from him throughout the years. At some points he says 12, some he says 9, at one point he said no one would ever be making 7,8,9. Timothy Zahn has said the books were only ever suppose to be books.

Did you see the letter he wrote to the Lost producers, saying he was making it up as he went along? It reads so unlike anything that Lucas has ever said about SW, that it almost seems made up. But it isn't.




Congratulations on pulling off an amazing show. Don’t tell anyone … but when ‘Star Wars’ first came out, I didn’t know where it was going either. The trick is to pretend you’ve planned the whole thing out in advance. Throw in some father issues and references to other stories — let’s call them homages — and you’ve got a series.
In six seasons, you’ve managed to span both time and space, and I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I never saw what was around the corner. Now that it’s all coming to an end, it’s impressive to see how much was planned out in advance and how neatly you’ve wrapped up everything. You’ve created something really special. I’m sad that the series is ending, but I look forward to seeing what you two are going to do next.

I don't have a clue what most of you are talking about. I'm huge fan of the original trilogy, but I've never read any of the books/novels. And even though the prequels were a huge disappointment, I'm somewhat excited about the announcement of more movies. With that said, I'm very interested in reading some of the books that take place after Jedi to see where the story went. Which ones would you all recommend, and are they still available?

Thrawn Triology is a great start or anything written by either Timmothy Zahn or Michael Stackpole. RA Salvatore starts out the New Jedi Order series, but thats about 15 to 20 books into the expanded universe. If you are a Mandolorian/Boba Fett fan try Karen Traviss's Republic Commando Series.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_books


Must reads (in chronological order):


Courtship of Princess Leia

The Thrawn Trilogy

The Jedi Academy Trilogy

The New Jedi Order (20+ book series)

The Dark Nest Trilogy

The Legacy of the Force (I stopped at this series)

Fate of the Jedi

There's a lot of material in between the Academy series and the New Jedi Order, but none that are on the level of the Thrawn or Academy series and you could go online and read what happens in between. Mostly side character development and political on goings of the galaxy. The Solo twins have their own young adult novel series and the youngest Solo has his own kids series. The New Jedi Order is where the **** hits the fan. The rest involve the aftermath and recovery.

I personally don't like the academy series because I'm not a fan of how Anderson( much better editor) writes but stackpole wrote a book that runs along that series called I, Jedi that is a great book.

Thanks for the info guys. Time to start looking for these books, I've got some catching up to do.

I left out I, Jedi and some others because, while they are great books, they don't move the story line of the core characters as significantly as these do.

I understand was just pointing out that you can get most of the base story plots from the Academy series in I,Jedi and Corran Horn is the best character in the expanded universe that isn't in the movies. (Unless you throw in Thrawn and that is really a toss up.)
