Good.
 
The KJA "Jedi Academy" stories are execrable.  The worst form of tie-in fiction hackery.

I can tell you right now the new films will, at best, borrow a few names and concepts from the Expanded Universe stuff. That's how it worked with both the prequels and special editions, and it's how it will work with this stuff.

Apparently Samuel L. Jackson really wants to return as Mace Windu.

It's going to be wrong no matter what they plan to do.

Everybody wants Boba Fett Academy.

Everybody wants to fly around with a jet pack and sling floss at people and speak in some mysterious radio-like voice.

awesome. let's make that movie.

oh yeah, let's put a sexy Han Solo preteen boy in there too. Whatever you do don't put anybody in it who actually uses the force.

In fact, make the whole movie in the Cantina. You can put a Wookie in there, sexy Han boy... just don't put anybody in the movie who knows the ways of the force because that shiat ruins the whole point of the entire concept of the story.

fun as shiat

I'm releaved. Yavin 4 meant Jedi Academy. The last thing we need right now, or even 3 years from now, is a Star Wars version of Harry Potter movie. By which I mean, framed and set in a year at a school for special kids.

WHEW!!

I thought this would be another one of those awful fantard threads where people whargble on and on like people care about anything they have to say about the sequels...or production in general.
I liked Battlestar Galactica better...

/Nathionz Fillionz as Starbuck Rogers and Hammerstein
//Christian Balezzzz as Apollo Creed n' Clearwater Revival for the fail

THIS

I really hope they rework some things and make the Thrawn trilogy.

They need to not do anything with the expanded universe. They need to release something that says "We know there was a hardcover on it, but it was still nothing but bad fan fiction written by hacks."

The vast majority of it was, but Timothy Zahn's stuff was good.

Having written and read a lot of Star Wars fan fiction, I'd say it's average fan fiction written by hacks. Which of course does classify it as "bad" but modifying "fan fiction" with bad suggests that it would be on the lower end of the quality scale of fan fiction... and while there are some really good fan fics out there, there's a lot of really bad stuff, too... obviously...

My daughter is big on writing fanfic - she's hated in certain online Dr. Who fanfic communities because she likes re-writing other people's stuff if it is poorly written and she feels it was a good story underneath. She is strangely militant about it - apparently, writing bad Dr. Who fanfic is the equivalent of performing a Cleveland Steamer on a sleeping David Tennant.

She has a lot of friends at school who write this stuff, mountains and mountains of fanfic, slashfic and other terms I am sure they just invented tonight. Almost all garbage, useful only to maybe a pediatric psychiatrist. Weird stuff. I read a Beatles slashfic (?) in one of her notebooks and I can never look at the Beatles the same way again.

A group of them got in trouble (yes, mine included) for "slashing" a group of teachers at their school and distributing the "story" online. It led to counseling.

As long as Disney makes it another in their collection of fantastic musicals, I think we'll all be happy.

As was Mike Stackpoole's.  His X-WING SQUADRON books are decent pulp SF, and he managed to do in
one book (I, JEDI) what Kevin J. Anderson could not do in three as far as doing a good job of writing about
the ascent of a Jedi from apprentice to master.

It's a crazy community... but OMG... slashing teachers at your school??? that's... wow... good luck with that one! But hey, at least she's writing!! These are useful tools to develop.

/so glad my 15 yr old daughter thinks fan fiction is lame...
