'Stars Wars' films not to go into expanded universe
More on Star Wars
The new Star Wars films will not draw upon the expanded universe, says screenwriter Simon Kinberg.
Kinberg is working on a script for one of the spin-off films, but has not discounted using inspiration from the expanded universe for future projects.
"I'm working on animated show for Lucasfilm as well, as Star Wars: Rebels, that will take inspiration from everywhere," he says.
Directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Adam Driver, Star Wars: Episode VII will open in the UK on 18th December 2015.
