Simon Kinberg Discusses The Expanded Universe's Role In STAR WARS Spin-Offs

As well as writing and producing The Fantastic Four and X-Men: Days of Future Past, Simon Kinberg is also working on a Star Wars spin-off. Here, he talks about exactly how much of a role that the Expanded Universe will have on these new big screen adventures...


So, as we'd previously assumed, it sounds as if fans of the Expanded Universe shouldn't expect to see any of those stories have an impact on what we see in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII or beyond. However, the fact that they are at least turning to those for inspiration should come as good news to many, but are you still disappointed that after so many comics, books and video games set in that world, that none of it is canon in the film series? Or, are you excited to see brand new stories? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on these comments in the usual place!
