EU history Edit
Ok in the opening description it says the EU is older then the movies. But then it goes on to say the EU first started in 1978 with the first novel "A Splinter in the Minds Eye" It then repeats this later in the article when it talks about the books. So which is it? —Unsigned comment by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs).
Well, the novelization of Star Wars came out in '76. That may be what it's referring to. What I want to know is: it says Lucas prohibited stories taking place before ANH, yet the list of novels by release date lists at least 9 books written in that era, during the prohibition. 18.104.22.168 20:21, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
- It's not made clear in the article, but at the time the Han Solo and Lando Calrissian Adventures were written, Lucas really didn't have anything in the way of policies dictating what could and couldn't be done in Star Wars productions. Those didn't start coming into being until Heir to the Empire jump-started the EU and made them necessary. The Han Solo trilogy is something of a special case, and largely exists specifically to help reconcile those earlier works with the later canon. Dangerdan97 20:55, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
Where did George Lucas establish that Darth plageius was a Muun species? Edit
Please post a quote from george lucas confirming what he said about darth plageius.
- That it was George Lucas's idea was stated at a panel at Celebration IV. There is no quote from Lucas himself. NaruHina Talk 03:01, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
Just a question, where does this idea come from that George Lucas thinks the EU is in a canon all of its own? Just asking because I have never found a source for it. Matt Seay (talk) 03:20, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
