Is there or has there ever been a real canon for these stories, at least as a backdrop? Since the veteran characters aren't going to be the focus of the story anyway, I really hope the old married couple angle is played up well in Star Wars VII. It'll be the best source of comedy for the movie. Han and Leia should be constantly bickering about snoring, weight, sagging boobs, erectile dysfunction, leaving the seat up, and whether it's been 34 or 35 years since they vanquished Jabba the Hut, with Han failing to remember needing to be rescued and trying to steal the credit from Leia for killing Jabba. Ultimately, Leia wins the argument by using mind tricks because where she's concerned, Han is most decidedly weak-minded. Just my silly thoughts. What are your thoughts about the sequel trilogy?
