New Star Wars films won’t draw on expanded universe


From TotalFilm

Simon Kinberg is currently working on a script for one of the forthcoming Star Wars spin-offs, but according to the screenwriter, the main series of films will not draw upon the expanded universe.

“You know, it’s not off-limits, and it’s certainly inspiring,” says Kinberg of the expanded universe material. “I’m working on an animated show for [Lucasfilm] as well, Star Wars: Rebels, that will take inspiration from everywhere.”

“But…” he continues, “I know for the movies, the canon is the canon, and the canon is the six films that exist.”

Which isn’t to say that Lucasfilm isn’t keen to develop the expanded universe further, and indeed, Kinberg’s spin-off will do just that… it just won’t feed directly into the main series.

Directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Adam Driver, Star Wars: Episode VIIwill open in the UK on 18 December 2015.
