My thoughts on Black Angel here: http://sfcrowsnest.org.uk/black-angel-1980-film-review/
Black Angel was a short film shown prior to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in UK theatres during the summer of 1980. I never forgot the dark, evocative, imagery, nor how it foreshadowed the Star Wars sequel that would bec...

Since Lucasfilm annexed all Expanded Universe content into a galaxy called 'Legends' this represents the first time we'll see new adventures for Luke, Leia, Han and Chewie, outside of the movies in the new continuity. We only have two books so far - 'A New Dawn' and 'Tarkin' so the comics should add a nice layer of story. Interesting to note that Brian Wood's version of 'Star Wars' that ran with Dark Horse from Jan 2013 to August 2014 over 20 issues was also set in the period between 'A New Hope' and 'The Empire Strikes Back'. The storyline initially dealt with there being a traitor at the heart of the Alliance, which in itself was intriguing. One wonders if we'll see the appearance of Jaxxon - http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jaxxon perhaps the original Marvel runs most notorious character, basically a space rabbit smuggler. That he's already going to appear on a variant cover for #1 of the new Marvel run bodes well. Interestingly 'The Clone Wars' episode 'A Sunny Day in the Void' features a crashed spaceship with a giant rabbit skeleton in a space suit inside it.
According to Comicbook.com, Marvel is expected to sell 1 million copies of Star Wars #1 when it goes on sale in January 2015. The new comic series, which marks Marvel's return to a galaxy far, far away, is set between A New H...

+John Rivers Insightful! Must confess I haven't read any Dark Horse Comics Star Wars since the halcyon days of the Dark Empire trilogy and Classic Star Wars, which featured me in Stellar Scribes (twice). Marvel's timed things perfectly, what with my birthday and all.

Sounds like 'Star Wars 1313' and what that was supposed to be 'street-level, gritty'. Instead we've got 'Star Wars: Rebels'...

Great discussion, guys. One thing I might suggest you look at is how many adaptations Hollywood carried out in the 20s, 30s, 40s etc. Hollywood has always recycled. It is both good and bad. Also... when The Matrix ended, didnt you want a sequel? I did. I'd love a sequel to Inception. Im not sure it would happen though. Sometimes the public want more. I think studios assume they do and critics assume they dont.
