    You're J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm has just hired you to write and direct Star Wars: Episode IX. You've read the script for Episode VIII and loved it so now how are you going to carry the story forward to its climax? You have a meeting with Kathleen Kennedy in just three months where you will present your vision for the film. Three months to crack the story and develop a detailed treatment for your movie that will wow the LFL brass. You also have Iger constantly calling you just to say you better not screw it up. No pressure. :p

    Rules and such:

    1) This contest is for fun and needs to stay positive. If you despise TLJ it might not be the contest for you.

    2) Your treatment must adhere to the rules of the forums and be family friendly. Keep in mind your writing a SW film not Fifty Shades of Grey. :p

    3) Your treatment can be as long and as detailed as you want but remember other users will have to read it so writing the next War and Peace might be overdoing it. :p

    4) Given that this isn't the real Episode IX I'm not going to say you can't include Leia as a major supporting character but I encourage you all to challenge yourselves. Put yourself in J.J.'s shoes and really try to come up with a plausible way to give the character a respectful send off.

    5) All treatments must be sent to me via PM. DO NOT post your treatment anywhere else or it will be disqualified.

    6) You have three months to write your treatment. Deadline for entry will be April 19th, 2018.

    7) After the deadline all entries will be posted in a separate thread(s). Voting will be done via a poll and last a month.

    8) First place will receive a month of colors and custom title, second place will receive two weeks of colors and custom title and third place will receive a week of colors and custom title.

    9) This contest is open for all: regular users, mods, admins, etc.

    Good luck... you're gonna need it...

    ...if you ever intend to work in this town again. :p

    This thread will stay closed just in case anyone is tempted to post their treatment in here. If you have any questions or just want some feedback on ideas you have see this thread:
