    New Republic crumbles, Skywalkers blamed, new threat rises

    in a few more words, I think Yoda's final instruction to Luke to "pass on what he has learned" could fuel the narrative for the entire ST and provide crucial connective tissue to the first six films.

    Building on this, an interesting narrative would be that Luke refuses to restart the Jedi due to fear that his father's sins would be discovered and that the Sith would be reestablished, this lack of a Jedi Order leads to chaos and anarchy in the galaxy and increasing hatred for Luke, and is the breeding ground for the rise of a new threat to galactic peace. It also creates tension between Luke, the leader of the New Republic military, and Leia, the Supreme Chancellor who finds it increasingly difficult to defend her brother's refusal to reestablish the Jedi.

    The new threat/villain eventually leads Luke to see the wisdom of "passing on" what he has learned and the reestablishment of the Jedi Order.

    actually, i think i once heard an interview that the story of luke, leia and han will be boring after episode VI.
    Luke will just go over to teaching, Han and Leia have a family and Leia gets involved into politics.
    Episode VII probably won't focuse on the Skywalkers, Luke will just have a short cameo in episode IX

    I'd watch it - it could be like About Schmidt, except with Mark Hamill and aliens.

    I'd love to see a movie series take place in the Old Republic era. Mainly the New Sith Wars.

    If it takes place after the sixth movie then have the movie take place 1,000 years after the Battle of Yavin with the Sith and Jedi involved in a war. Epic lightsaber duels and thousands of Jedi and Sith.

    Lots of fighting and explosions and Jedi-Sith battles


    Wait, so that's pretty much a given?

    It would be about how the Galaxy has become more secular, and don't feel like they need a Jedi Order. Until they do.

    I know my idea isn't that good, but what's yours?

    It's going to be real hard coming up with a new story and antagonist, anyway. Sooo many questions on why he wasn't brought up before.

    I can hear the whining, now...

    Who's this guy?! Where the hell did he come from?! Why wasn't he around before?! Whine, whine, whine, whine, whine...

    No matter what they come up with, they'll be some that'll trash it.
