    I never read any of the Star Wars books, so does anyone know if these movies are supposed to be based on existing books or not? Just curious if those could give an idea of what will happen in these movies.

    There are book series post empire where Luke marries and Leia marries (Han). Their children have very extensive story arcs. Boba Fett plays an active part as well ...

    Hard to say where they will take the movies though. There is a lot of content out there to choose from.

    Just speculating :)

    They will not be based on any existing material. George wrote the story treatment that the script writer is working from, and he has stated that it's an original story line.

    And probably everyone has heard the Story Team is has been starting clean and the existing stuff is being called "Star Wars Legends". Shame.

    Though I guess Mara, Corran, etc costumers are now Legendary? *shrug*. It would be nice if some stuff from books, comics, etc. sneak in.

    As much as I love the existing EU I'm really excited to see what is coming down the pipes. From what I've seen so far it looks like Luke is swinging single in the name of the Force so that really puts a nail in the Mara coffin.

    Sadness.

    Rumor (and only rumor) has it that there is one more female role up for grabs. So I shall hold my breath for just a little longer...but I'm not very hopeful anymore that we will ever see Mara on the big screen.
