Yeah, you're probably right.

^^Listen to this person.

Back in 2013, after Kasdan was first announced to be writing a spin-off film, he specifically said he wasn't looking at the books.

That said, it doesn't prevent the movie from having similarities to the books. They just wouldn't be planned that way.

And it could also be possible if Lucas developed any background or reference material about Han's past, those ideas could end up in both the books and the movie. But that's just me speculating.

Yeah they pretty much wiped the slate clean, which was probably the best thing to do if they plan on tying up the future films, cartoons and books to the previously made movies and cartoons. But I wouldn't be surprised if they cherry pick things out of the old EU books to use. For example they've added Admiral Thrawn to the Rebels cartoon for the new series.

Now filming. Have to imagine a formal start of production press release will follow in the near future.

Nice to see they reaffirmed the release date in that article. Last few releases only said "2018," which was leading to rumors of it moving from May to December like Episode VIII did.
