SSW009: Will Star Wars VII Leave the Extended Universe Intact?

Dom and Fr. Roderick discuss the implications of Disney’s press release about the beginning of filming in May and the one-sentence description of the main characters in Star Wars VII. What can we deduce? What does this exclude? And what could it mean for the Extended Universe?

    In the EU, Luke starts his Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 in the Massassi Temple that the Rebels used as a base to stage the Battle of Yavin. 😉

    The “official” age (at this time anyway) for Luke and Leia’s age in A New Hope is 19. Carrie was 20 in 1977 and Mark was 25. I think they would have been 19 and 24 when filming began.
    Alec Guinness was 62 in 1977, same age as Mark is now.
    Harrison is 71 – 8 years older than Peter Cushing was in 1977 and 9 years older than Guinness! Only 11 years younger than Christopher Lee was when EP3 came out.
