NJO Teaser Note From The Essential Reader's Companion

Posted By Mike on May 12, 2012

Erich Schoeneweiss took to Del Rey's Star Wars Books Facebook page on Thursday in order to tease a little from the NJO chapter of the upcoming Essential Reader's Companion...

"I'm working on editing the New Jedi Order chapter of Pablo Hidalgo's Essential Reader's Companion (due October 2) and I thought you might be interested in this little behind the scenes note on some early plot ideas for the series:

"The story arc was to very closely hew to the myth structure of the Hero’s Journey as outlined by Joseph Campbell, a huge influence on the creation of the Star Wars cinematic story. With that as its basic framework, the plot underwent much evolution and exploration. Its earliest descriptions had Luke Skywalker sending the three Solo children on an epic quest, upon which they encounter a new female character from the invading species sent to infiltrate the galaxy. This unnamed female corrupts Anakin, nearly turning him to the dark side, but she falls in love with him and Anakin instead redeems her. In a fit of intense sibling rivalry, Jacen and Jaina turn on Anakin, and in the resulting conflict, Jacen dies."

Oh what a different EU we would be in now if that story had played out. (ES)"
