VII was the most fun I've had at a movie since Star Trek (2009)! So that's a pretty big accomplishment, and pretty much exactly the type of experience I was expecting -- Star Trek was clearly an audition to take a crack at Star Wars for Abrams.

Questions for those in the know:

I don't know anything about the extended universe, but I am interested in how the new movie stacks up. The internet is not kind to those of us who know nothing. For those familiar with it, did VII honor extended universe plot lines? If not, can you give me/point me to a quick run down of how the extended universe deals with post VI events? (What I am interested in: Does the empire survive with another leader? Does it become the first order, or is that a new invention? Do the "rebels" with the jedi ever win back control of the military forces or form a functioning legitimate government?)


There is now a new-ish expanded universe.  This is an excellent summary.

Not yet. I am working my way through Clone Wars on Netflix.

Where in the timeline does Rebels occur?

Just before Rogue One and IV.

If you haven't seen this yet, it's an impressively good fan-made short movie involving lots of exciting saberfights, and surprisingly high-level production!

Even your old padawan?  You know, the one you nicknamed "Snips"?

I'm gonna go binge watch them all with my friends sometime soon! I had to watch the 6th for school, but I mean, you can't watch it out of context of course.

Well that was unexpected. Big departure from the Expanded Universe, assuming they stay close to the teaser. Then again, I guess Rey could disagree.

Wonder who's playing Leia.

pacovf has a neopets account.  It has 999 hours logged.  All his neopets are named "Jessica".  I guess that must be his ex.

Carrie Fisher.  She was still alive when they filmed it.

From what it sounds like, Carrie Fisher will not be CGIed into Episode IX. One headline said this was bad news for Carrie Fisher fans. I disagree. I think fans of Carrie Fisher would prefer not making her into a cinematic zombie.

I wouldn't think that fans of Carrie Fisher are a homogeneous enough group that you can just generalize them all like that.

They totally are. They're just like Scotsmen that way.

Well, the Expanded Universe is pretty much gone.  They've already said that.  It's not a surprise.
