J. J Abrams (Star Trek, Super 8, various TV series)
Frank Darabont (Almost directed TPM)
Kathleen Kennedy (Basically is co-chair of Lucasfilm)

They're mentioned in ROTS during the opera scene, when Palpatine starts talking about Darth Plagueis.
BTW there are some rumors that we'll see a return to Yavin Four, the moon from the end of the first film. In the novels, Luke builds a Jedi academy there in the old rebel base temple. It also shows up in the Kyle Katarn/Dark Forces/Jedi knight PC games. So some people are speculating that we'll see that. The actual real life temples are actually Mayan, and I think they used some of the footage or photographs for Naboo's forests in TPM.

...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

I have a comic book podcast, my name is Luro on it. Please listen for the good of mankind.
According to an article here at CBR apparently the license for Dark Horse may run out in 2013. So 2014 may be the return of Star Wars to Marvel, just in time for Tie-ins and movie adaptations.
PALPATINE: "Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the Midichlorians to create life..."
It ran from May of 1999 through June of 2002, I believe. It only stopped in favor of "Jedi Quest" since AOTC came out. Likewise when ROTS came out, "Last Of The Jedi" launched.Originally Posted by Addams
Yeah, it is. It gives a good look into Obi-wan and Qui-gon's relationship and shows how they got to where they are in TPM.Worth reading ?
Thanks for your opinion Matt, i'm going to give The Rising Force a try and see from there.
You should read books one and two. Jude Watson took over with book two and wrote the rest of the series.
