    Kashyyyk: And the Expanded Universe continues to unravel

    . . . well, maybe.

    I'm not posting this under the "No Spoilers" section, even though that's where I'd rather be, because it is a spoiler.

    I'd appreciate it if everyone could keep unrelated or major spoilers to a minimum in this particular thread.

    The design sketches and discussion of Kashyyyk shown at the SDCC got the giant trees right. But that's about it.

    Giant trees and lagoons? Lagoons? Are some of the giant Wrosshrs so tall and interconnected that actual lagoons can form in their canopies?

    Lucas has always said Kashyyyk has multiple levels within the miles-high trees, with only the top levels safe enough even for Wookiees to live. But lagoons seem to suggest the ground level, where few Wookiees have ever dared tread and survived.

    If the trees aren't that tremendously high and Wooks can go about freely on the ground, what happened to Lumpy when he fell into the depths? Did he just bonk his head and dream everything?

    The movies are the only true canon. The EU is great, but it's pretty much nothing more than 'What If' stories set in the Star Wars Universe. You can choose to accept them as canon, or you can toss them asside as not. To Lucas, the movies are what sets canon, and if they negate something in the books, than too bad.

    I wonder is Chewie's family will be in Episode III, and perhaps the home from the HS ?

    Yeah, but like I said elsewhere, why approve someone else's playing around in your sandbox if you're only going to come along and kick down their castle later to make room for your improved, uh, whatever?

    If Lucas is going to allow folks to come up with a very detailed description of Kashyyyk, why not later respect what was previously created? The Holiday Special may be doondoon, but The Wookiee Storybook and Timothy Zahn's descriptions are really cool.

    Agreed to that. I like the EU stuff, but when it comes to the movies, those who make them get to choose. And maybe lagoons form where many of the tree's intertwine, almost like taking a leaf, pinching it and putting water in it, like a spoon? Or perhaps the battle does take place on the ground, that was my first inclination. And the Wookies cant go freely on the ground. If theres a battle down there, and many Wookies are together, then theyre alot safer in packs and groups I'd think. Who knows, just have to wait and see.
    Go ahead and reply, I probably wont read this for another week or so, much less even care what you've got to say to begin with. So I'd advise you to not waste your time, but if you want to, then go ahead :rolleyes:

    Except in the case of the Prequels, those movies are negating the previous canon, so all's fair at this point. Oh well...what else is playing this weekend?

    There is no evidence of anything in the Prequels negating anything in the OT. Other then the nitpickings of a group of fans, who refuse to see anything beyond their point of view as possibly correct. But go ahead Stilla, bring up the same tired and boring Yoda/Obi-Wan argument. You know you want to.

    You did it for me. Thanks! I don't need to. The evidence of that and a few other things is there for anyone to see without my help.

    Well, JJB was right about one thing. It is tiring to talk about, so instead of listing the parade of problems here with full detail and description, I'll have to unfortunately refer you to the archives. I am sorry. I'm sure that someone somewhere has compiled everything in one handy to access website or something, but I haven't. Sorry. Really.
