As a fan since I was a kid, I was always told by everyone that the PT would seal the deal, shut it down, and ultimately end the story. In 05, after watching ROTS, I was satisfied with the conclusion. Not a week later, I became curious as to what would be necessary keep the saga going. After reading the news of a ST on 10/30, I once again began to ponder, even after 7 years. I rapidly began to search for secrets and hints as to what might drive the story. I read about the General Thrawn trilogy, Yuuzhzan Bing Bongs, EU, and all that non-sense, I happily learned that it will stem from original material. For me, the Force is an integral part of the Star Wars universe, and to remove the dark side as the antithesis of the good/heroes would all but ruin it for me. IMO, I think George and his team of talented writers can somehow incorporate a new Sith. As we all know, Sith's are known for their patience, as every successful villain should be. I would like to think that maybe, possibly, another Sith could be brought in to the scheme of things. I know that Anakin, yes Anakin, destroyed the Sith and the dark side forever. But what if, for the sake of things, George chooses to have more offspring, preferably evil offspring at that. Sidious, Dooku, Maul or even a mini baby Grievous could come to existence. Perhaps even that the said descendants would even have learned the Force. I'd like to think a disdain for all Skywalkers will come into play, with young (most likely not, since VII is rumored to take place after VI), hate fueled Sith taught by his dark sided father. Perhaps he (or she) could even learn about the Kyber Crystal, which gave Palpatine his strength (unbeknownst to myself at the time of the PT). Perhaps their is a clash against Luke for the formation of a new Republic, where once again the Jedi and the Sith, although it most likely won't be a large number obviously due to the losses beforehand. Who knows, maybe the new Sith is also in cahoots with the a new technologically sound enemy bent on building a third Death Star! Sorry for the long read, but this is my first post and I'm new to the game. But tell me what you think, if their is any likelihood to my premonitions haha. Also, let me know what your thinking about/hoping for in the ST. May the Force be with us all!
