Star Wars author Pablo Hidalgo posted on the official Star Wars Blog about the announcement of three new Star Wars movies and the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney. You can check it out here. Steve Sansweet weighed in with his thoughts here. And you can also check out J.W. Rinzler’s post here.
Star Wars author Timothy Zahn also shared some initial thoughts on Facebook.
1. No, I haven’t been contacted by either Disney or LFL.
2. There’s no indication that anything from the Thrawn Trilogy (or any other EU book/comic will be part of the new movies.
3. There’s also no indication that they *won’t* make an appearance. Right now, we really have nothing on any of those details.
4. If Disney *did* want to use anything from the EU, they wouldn’t need the author’s approval or permission to do so. Everything that’s been written under the Star Wars logo is LFL properly (as is only right and proper), and they can do with it as they please.
5. If by some miracle Disney *does* want my input on the project, I *will* be on the next flight to California. Heck, I’ll charter a plane if I have to.
