One of the biggest questions raised by the prospect of a new Star Wars trilogy is “What’s going to happen to the Expanded Universe?” It’s especially an issue regarding the canonicity of the novels written in the period after Return of the Jedi, when Episodes VII, VIII, and IX will be set. So, to discuss this pressing matter for Star Wars fans, Hollywood.com has assembled an all-star panel of experts. Host Christian Blauvelt (@Ctblauvelt) and co-host Eric Geller (@ericgeller) of TheForce.Net (@TheForceNet) will be joined by Star Wars bloggers Amy Ratcliffe (@amy_geek) and Aaron Goins (@avgoins) for a Google Hangout discussion at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT that you can watch right here.
We’ll be looking back at where the EU has been and where it might go, and we’ll certainly share our picks for our favorite EU novels to date. Feel free to ask us any questions about the EU or its future using the hashtag #GTTTG. Hope to see you at 9:30!
