So it will feature Tatooine a bit more but I don't expect Darth to visit, as he would have felt Obi-Wan's presence and he doesn't like sand. :laugh:

I sure hope James Earl Jones is up for making the voice of Vader.

Re: How to find Novels by Era

There will be no more 'Legends' novels. Disney don't want this universe to continue. They actually had the series of three novels called 'Sword of the Jedi' which was going to cover Jaina stopped from going to print. I believe that Christie Golden had complete the first two novels from that series....

A totally pointless change intended for the never-released 3D version. The change only introduced continuity errors. The shot is also not static, but it pans.

Sorry for the DP... I've been a stark defender of the Special Editions and later changes. However, I can't defend the latest changes made to ROTJ introduced in 2011. The door to Jabba's palace is just dumb and Vader's "Noooo" ruined the scene.
