The Star Wars saga doesn’t stop at the six movies. It’s been able to feed fans for decades with novels, comic books, video games, and TV shows. However, none of this material will be used when it comes to the upcoming films. Screenwriter Simon Kinberg, who is working on one of the Star Wars spin-offs as well as the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, tells IGN, ” You know, it’s not off-limits, and it’s certainly inspiring — I’m working on an animated show for [Lucasfilm] as well, Star Wars: Rebels, that will take inspiration from everywhere, but — I know for the movies, the canon is the canon, and the canon is the six films that exist.”
Hit the jump for Kinberg talking about the Star Wars expanded universe. Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015.
