    Thrawn, Vong, Jacen Solo >>> "This isn't another Death Star...it's bigger!" + a villain who can't fight.

    So she basically just wasn't a starwars fan at all. Probably didn't even see the movies until she got the job. Every starwars fan i know wanted them to do the thrawn trilogy or some KOTOR type stuff.

    Even George, one of her good hollywood friends, thought the EU was basically fan fiction. She probably thinks something similar. Like there's no gift wrapped sequel trilogy novel series that's easily adaptable. I refuse to believe she doesn't know the EU existed or Lords of the sith isn't a thing. But the optics are horrendous.

    Figured it was taken out of context. Nope. She literally says there's NO source material out there. :dwillhuh:

    If she had said the EU shyt was trash, she'd have something to argue. But to say there's NOTHING?

    How sway?

    The Thrawn trilogy is a best seller, even the new one Timohty Zahn just wrote called Thrawn is a best seller.

    fan fiction or not.. its still a source to draw from. saying there is absolutely nothing to draw from. we're going from scratch is BS. even she said they refused to use EU

    and i thought George sanctioned a few of them

    That's not what's she's saying at all. Good grief, you dudes need to slow down and actually comprehend things. It would also help to read original articles instead of interpretations by shytty websites.

    This is not a cry about a lack of source material to lift from, but about the pressures in the process involved in developing an original story.

    Yeah, but again, gift wrapped, Harrison Ford didn't want to play Han Solo anymore, Hamill is 68, how do you expect them to do even half the stuff that's in Heir to the empire or Dark force rising. Even then there's really only one lightsaber battle and that's at the end of The Last Command.

    In terms of spinoff films or trilogies like using George's Whills sequel trilogy outline, Darth Bane trilogy, Rogue Squadron, New Sith wars, Yuuzhan Vong, black fleet crisis, New Jedi Order, Knights of the old republic sure.

    But, there are times when adapting is far harder than creating a new screenplay.

    Although I suppose they could bring in Zahn to the writers room.

    I'm not defending her, the optics are horrible. She continues to look like she doesn't know anything about Star Wars. She doesn't need to eat, sleep and breath Star Wars, but she should at least know when to step back and leave the creatives to their business.

    thats where her problem is... those pressure are self imposed. there is source stuff to use . even as an influence there is stuff to use. i'm sure they couldve found a few stories to pick ideas from and still have a fresh story for eps 7-9

    Also having 3 writers / directors is OK but at least have a 3 film outline.... each writer was starting from scratch.. how the hell can they tell one story if theres no outline

    Again, I said none of them were gift wrapped in the same way Infinity Gauntlet or COIE was.


    Nah, George just vetoed some of the stuff he didn't like or gave a couple suggestions here and there. Remember, he had tiers of canon, and the only thing he cared about where the films and Clone Wars.

    i understand its not gift wrapped. but saying there's nothing to draw from is untrue.
