Fair enough.
Where would you go from now with the series with the films not being as good as some would hope?


They're absolutely as good as I've been hoping. I'm sort of interested in the Old Republic, as long as they tell new stories, and don't rehash old ones.

I would like to see a Boba Fett film, maybe Cad Bane - a rivalry film would be neat, but I don't know if Bane survived long. I think Fett killed him in an unaired, partially-made Clone Wars arc. I'm fully expecting Lucas' Force-explaining plot originally planned for VII-IX to be explored.

Make a different main arc.

The whole Episode 1-9 is all about the Skywalker saga.

The problem is that they need a new villain force, as I doubt the Empire would suffice as it’s heavy linked to the Skywalker saga.

So something in the Old Republic or before Palpatine took up politics would work.

Or they bring Thrawn to the big screen. He’s the only Empire character we haven’t seen in the films, and in the EU he was searching for the shattered survivors of the Empire after Return of the Jedi and would make a good villain.

So no time travel or alternative timeline bullshit. It wouldn’t work.

If they were to do a new trilogy, old republic is the way I’d go. They need to wait awhile though.

They do need to end the Skywalker saga with 9 and explore new stories or look to the past, I agree. Another vote for The Old Republic here.

Rather than look at the past, look at the future.

The only thing Star Wars needs to improve on is games. For the past near ten years, aside from Battlefront and LEGO, the only output has been mobile. I'm pretty sure this point has been discussed before, but comparing every other form of media to the previous ten years, the output has increased. The games are the only area to see a decrease.

Even if the Disney films have been poorly received by some, there's no reason to call a full reboot over it - especially as the last time that happened when Disney first took over there was an outrage by a good portion of the fanbase and the exetreme part of it are still fuming in their pots about it.

Well that’s down to EA now. They have the exclusive license until 2023 I believe and since 2013 have only used it to produce 2 Battlefront games.

Fallen Order looks like it has potential at least.

Fallen Order does indeed look a return to form, yes. I still hold to the belief that EA should have taken the reigns of 1313 and brought it to completion, along with that First Assault game, just to get something out before Battlefront. But I guess they could only start once the licence had been finalised, so it would have been even odds whether those games could have released before then.

I'd love to see Thrawn brought to the big screen, he's easily the best written Imperial character, and while I don't know if he survived his Rebels arc, I really hope he did.

The EU isn't an alternate universe, it's all set within the preques timeline fleshing out said prequels and Anakin's story therein. It's only because the Clones series was cut short that it didn't tie up properly with ROTS. Rebels is a continuation of the tale prior to the events of A New Hope.

Bringing back Palpatine makes absolutely no sense given the Anakin/Vader story arc. Kennedy and co are just throwing everything they can at the new trilogy in the hope something sticks. Unless proven otherwise I've no doubt in my mind that that EP9, like TLJ, will be a mixture of tenuous links and complete twaddle.

Ah, I see.

Still stings a bit that they just wiped all that stuff away. 25 odd years of characters and stories that no longer count.

I can understand why they had to do it, but it's still a shame.

It seems from what little I know that the current story (I've not seen TLJ but have seen all the other recent Star Wars films) has really gone down badly with the fans so maybe it's time they gave the franchise a rest and then decided on a new story for a reboot.

Could that work or is it a truly terrible idea?


Jar Jar Binks has force time travel. He trips over in a hilarious stunt and accidentally resets everything before the podrace. Wacky hijinks ensue.

The first was alright, but I have little interest in the prospect of sequels.

The first one was a real event movie, I remember going with friends and watching it at an IMAX. The 3D was magical and it really felt we were transported to another world. But the movie doesn’t seem to have that re-watchability that many sci-fi fans want. Maybe that will change if these expand the lore.
