I was going to get into all your bullshit, but it is clearly you are someone who clearly lacks the intelligence to understand what someone else has to say, let alone be willing to listen. You might "eat, sleep, and breath" the novels (which is not official cannon and I am pretty sure most of it wasn't even before Disney, but that doesn't mean you fully comprehend everything of Star Wars more than everyone else. Here is what I will say though, without getting into everything. When I stated that 1% of the films from Lucas contained the EU, that means the story lines involved. I included 4-6 to incorporate the fact that he kept that consistent in all his films. Character names, ships, planets, objects are all just a small portion of what makes the films. 1% might be low, but it is to imply that not much was used. In fact, the main plots and points for all 6 films were created around the same time. All the details were not drawn out, but that is because as you make 1 film and make changes to it, it makes it easier to adjust the other films. It still remains that not much of the EU was used in any of his films, which means that not much should be used in 7. Once again, how original would it have been to base 7-9 entirely on the EU novels, especially when you have complained about so much of 7 already not being original? If you were to read articles from JJ about 7, you would see that he wanted to make as much of it original as possible, and not just be another adopted film. Honestly I think Lucas should never have sold, which would have meant that 7-9 would most likely never have been made, and I think a lot of people could have lived with that. And yes my definition of stand alone is going to be different, but I also base it off of what the actual definition of stand alone means, which is able to operate independently of. You honestly cannot say you can watch 5 without watching 4 and say that you understand what is taking place, let alone 6 without 5. I would like to see this quote from Lucas stating that all 6 films were designed to be stand alone films, because if you look at any forum they would say the exact same thing I have stated, that 4 and possibly 1 are the only ones that could be stand alone films. A good example of what would make a stand alone film is if they were to make a Winter Soldier film. I am not going to get into the rest of anything else because I just see it as pointless, especially with you.
