Re: Star Wars - who wrote the original storyline?
- As i recall, the book on the first movie was actually written by
Lucas, so he wrote the screenplay and the novelization attached to
it. However, the Empire strikes back was written by Donald Glut, i
believe, with Return of the Jedi being written by James Kahn. I have
all of these. So i guess they would be more along the lines of Terry
Brooks' version of Phantom Menace, Salvatores Attack of the Clones
novelization and now Matthew Wooding Stovers version of Revenge of
Funny thing is, a long time ago, Alan Dean Foster wrote Splinter of
the Mind's Eye, which was a standalone Star Wars Novel that took
place after Episode IV. Very good book, as far as Star Warsy feel,
and was the only other star wars universe material out there, beyond
the horrible comic book series, at the time it was written. I would
recommend it more than the novelizations.
