The actors are 30 years too old, anyway. It plays right after Episode 6. Is there an english Audio Drama of it, btw? There is a German one and it is awesome. All original (dub) voices and professional sound effects.
Because, and this is coming from an EU fan, the Thrawn trilogy has a lot of great characters and contributed a lot to the future of the EU but is overall pretty boring.
Also it took place only 5 years after Jedi, so instead of having a generation of new blood ready to go, they'd have needed to recast the big 3, and we'd have to wait for several movies for Jacen and Jaina to be adults and do anything interesting.
>there is an alternate timeline running RIGHT NOW where lucas died in the 90s or sold early, and we got a sequel trilogy first based on these books (starring famke janssen as mara jade), and only now are they doing the prequels
The main cast is too old. You'd have to recast them and that would be too controversial.
Regardless, there are a few scenes that I think would be really cool in live-action. >Han and Lando hustling people at a space casino >Luke getting out of his X-Wing to do exterior repairs while he's in space >Luke re-wiring his robot hand so he can force an electronic gate to open >Kashyyyk scenes that are way better than the scenes from Episode III >Reprogramming C-3PO to have Leia's voice so they can confuse someone during a transmission
