    I thought it might be fun to open up some discussion about the future of Star Wars beyond the ST. We had something like this before the forum separation, but it's worth giving it a fresh start.

    What are your hopes, expectations, dreams, fears, predictions and theories for the future stories we might see in the Star Wars universe?

    The spin offs have been confirmed, so we know we'll be getting those but it is still unclear which characters will they focus on.

    Personally, I'm probably most looking forward to exploring some of distant past or far future aspects of the GFFA, preferably with completely original characters.

    After the new trilogy (or maybe in between Episodes) I think we'll get a sort of prologue to the saga and I think it could possibly be based off the novel Darth Plagueis or perhaps their version of that story. Eventually I would love to see a saga concerning the Sith War a thousand years before TPM and I completely agree that it should be about new heroes and villains. It doesn't have to follow the Bane novels but I would love to see him as the main villain. A new saga in the far future would be awesome too.

    This is where my fear sets in. With so many films on the horizon and Disney seeming to want to milk Star Wars for all its worth, I fear that it will just become one of those tactless sequels that Disney churns out every so often that everyone groans about. I really hope that doesn't happen, but I do think there can be a thing as too much Star Wars with the path they're taking. Of course, being a Star Wars fan, I am interested in some spin-off films, particularly of aspects we haven't seen explored yet, but I will remain cautiously optimistic.

    Actually I'd rather just see them finish on this 'finale' trilogy and maybe give us some spin offs in between the films in the interim. After that they should just let Star Wars go out on a high note before it turns into a diluted and unoriginal cash cow... Much like the direction I think Marvel (cinematic universe) is headed. Then give us Star Wars Underworld on tv after the films. When that wraps up they should wait another 10 or so years and on the 50th anniversary of A New Hope (2027) being making 'the reboots'.

    I chose 'Other', because that's what I do in every poll, just to skew the results.
    If you must insist on providing of examples, I'd go with something totally off the wall and new. I fell in love with Star Wars because it took me to a place I've never been, but somehow...always known. I don't have any idea how that could be accomplished again, since everything since A New Hope has been an extrapolation and imitation. There's only one GL, but perhaps somewhere...there is another. ;)

    I want the Episode III.5 more than anything!

    That would be the BEST movie ever !!!:D

    It would feature Ewan back in the robes and it would allow him to confront Vader before Episode IV and allow for all sorts of coolness...

    It would also make a ton of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    I truly hope the ST is the final trilogy in the Skywalker Saga.

    There is a lot of great opportunity for other Star Wars Sagas that could get their own trilogies.

    And a ton of great spin-off standalones.

    I want to see the episodes continue forever. George designed it as a serial and there's no reason why it can't continue on with new characters and eventually not even be directly tied to the Skywalker clan.

    I see the spinoffs as just background material that fills in the characters.

    If they stop the current series. I would hope they begin a new series set during the era of the Old Republic, however with the rumors that there will be more Sith in the current series then we may have all the Jedi/Sith battles we can handle.

    I'd like to move away from the existing films--spinoffs involving a young Han Solo or Vader being "badass" for two hours hold no interest for me. Far future would probably interest me the most provided it actually feels like a far future, and not something that merely offers a different time period on paper but with obvious Luke, Vader, Millennium Falcon, etc. stand-ins. I'd also like to see new fully CGI film that's styled more towards realism than The Clone Wars.

    I don't want any movie to be set after Episode 9. When it ends, that's it. They lived happily ever after.
    I voted for distant past movies. I'd like to see the creation of the Jedi order and that kind of things.

    I would certainly not complain to have a new Trilogy deal with an early Sith vs. Jedi conflict and how that schism even came to be. There are thousands of years of history in that vast timeline, they can tell just about any story they want. Not to mention the unclaimed far future.

    I don't know if this will be a spin off, but I would definitely like to see a spinoff, in between Episodes 3 and 4, of Vader hunting down the remaining Jedi Knights.

    While I would love to see any one of the choices on the poll, I'm particularly hoping to see a movie or spinoff set during the Old Republic era before the Ruusan Reformation, or even earlier, as there are thousands of years of history worth playing around with. Such films can overlap the era shown in KOTOR and TOR, or some other period that's only been covered sparsely in the EU, or not at all. There are really a lot of possibilities they can go with this. I'll be especially ecstatic if they can show us the Mandalorian Wars, fought by the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders and the Revanchists! I'll also certainly not be averse to seeing the Jedi of the Old Republic fighting the armies of the Sith Empires of the past.

    I wish to see Disney going bankrupt, GL rebuying SW for a minimal cost, then fixing up the then 9 part saga a bit more and continually tinkering with it until he becomes one with the Force a happy man and I can enjoy his movies that took 70 years to make

    I'd like the saga to end at 9.
    I'd maybe like to see an occasional origins story for a main player - but there's not many of them to be done.
    I'd be cool with distant past or distant future films.
    I'm most interested in spin off films based on secondary/tertiary/side characters/background characters. I'd like stories that run parallel with a point in the saga so you may see the back of Luke's head in a 1 second scene in a familiar location, but the action this time is centred on the bit part saga character. I think there are unlimited interesting GFFA life stories to be told.

    I truly hope this ST is the end of the "Skywalker Saga".

    As for anything else........

    I would like to see spin-offs and other trilogies where all stories reference or cross over this main Saga in some way. This would be similar to a lot of the short stories in books like Tales from Jabba's Palace and Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina.

    Any such stories could take place in the past and lead up to Ep I-IX, or the future based on events or results of Ep I-IX.

    I do love that old idea of the Skywalker Saga having been told to historians by the Droids, and somehow don;t want that thought to become impossible, even if they never do it.

    I would love it if they started a Saga II which could start over with Episode I and set it in a completely new era with new characters and possibly involving a new family that serve as the main characters. They could place it in the Bane era when the Sith rule the galaxy or put it in the far future or anywhere else really. I think this would be a great way to carry on the saga without having to focus each new trilogy on the next generation of Skywalker.
