    I would like to see that planet Lehon. Something about a space battle graveyard, where the destroyed ships' debris had been fused together into clumps of metallic asteroids, sounds very appealing to me. Especially since the planet itself is tropical and contains a bunch of small islands spread across its surface.

    Anything with color. I'm tired of Sci-Fi movies set in massive universes filled with boundless visual possibility... that restrict themselves to a dull blue-and-gray (or orange and teal) color scheme.

    All I ask is variety.

    I wonder if there's any other "tooine" planets out there.

    Aside from Tatooine and Dantooine? EU has a couple. Wonder if we will see one since we might get them mixed up? You think that would be more confusing than the Korriban/Moraband/Coruscant thing.

    Speaking of Moraband, maybe IX will end with its destruction.

    How about a Canyon planet, like the Grand Canyon with its inhabitants living in the walls of the canyons, like the Native Americans, but these aliens could have technology, ships, hangars, all built into the walls of the canyons.

    Something could be wrong with the land on top of the canyons, which is why they live in caves.

    I have a question...how many planets should the heroes have to travel to in each episode? Only a few, like it was in the OT? Or should there be several, like it was in the PT?

    The only movie with several planets is ROTS, and that's simply due to the nature of the Clone Wars and Order 66. Otherwise, it's fairly consistent throughout, with about 3 primary environments per movie.

    This article says they will spend 2 weeks shooting in Morocco: http://badassdigest.com/2014/04/01/episode-vii-shoots-april-14th-in-morocco/

    Do you think they're going back to Tatooine? If so, why?

    Maybe Luke re-settled there after ROTJ and that is where we will find him, 30 years later. Or maybe the new hero is coincidentally from Tattooine as well.

    Do you want to see Tatooine again? To be honest, the prospect doesn't excite me. It's a big galaxy, after all. I'd rather see something new.

    Yeah that's true. I thought about amending that but I got distracted and decided to leave it alone.

    Edit: I'd say Morocco looks promising for a return to Tatooine. I figured there would be a very good chance of returning to Tatooine for this movie anyway. I know some people are tired of it for some reason but at this point I honestly don't think it would feel like the first part of a Star Wars trilogy without it, and the more things they can do to create that feeling the more goodwill they'll get from me. And I suspect much of the less hardcore public would be on my side with that one.

    I would definitely be up for a return to Tatooine for at least the first movie. Yes, it's a big galaxy and we should explore more of it but it's also pretty big planet and there's plenty we haven't seen of it yet. I want to see more of it and I want it to continue to be an important place in the saga.

    No, this isn't Tatooine, this is Tatooine's twin planet.
    Really? What's the name of Tatooine's twin planet?
    Bob.
    You're saying the name of Tatooine's twin planet is Bob.
    Yep, it's Bob. Welcome to Bob!

    I don't mind them going back if there's a good reason. Fascinating to think what that reason might be. No one of note is there any more, as far as we know. Could it involve something in Ben's old house?

    I'd like to see Luke use the remains of Jabba's palace as a training area for young/new Jedi in addition to using the cave on Dagobah.

    If I were to guess (and of course I'm going to) I think it will play the same role it always has in the first movie of the trilogy. As the starting point for the hero's journey.
