I'll start with my own list of fears: -The trilogy will once again use the Sith or a bunch of evil Force-users as the antagonists. Seriously, the galaxy is too big. Have some other person or faction threaten the Jedi. -That Earth will be in it somehow. It's a baseless fear, I know, but I can't help it. I mean, when you saw The Phantom Menace for the first time, did you expect someone as exasperating as Jar Jar Binks to enter the picture? No? Well, that's why I'm expecting the unexpected. I'm expecting some big ****-ups in the new trilogy in case they do happen, so that if or when they do, at least I expected it; at least it's not a surprise. And speaking of Jar Jar Binks... -Jar Jar Binks. I hope he's not alive by the beginning of the trilogy. Sadly, I can see Jar Jar appearing because like I've said a couple times already, Disney will want to bring in the younger generation to the Star Wars fanbase and so therefore, they may make an effort to attract them by putting Jar Jar in the movies, no matter how antipathetic adult/adolescent fans are towards him. Or it may not even be because of that. Maybe the treatments of the films that George has written for Disney have the character in it? -That the movies will retcon Thrawn out of existence. Now I'm OK with this happening to the Yuuzhan Vong(though that will probably aggravate the minority fans that actually do like them) but Thrawn is sort of the pinnacle of EU greatness. He's a symbol of everything good about the EU. To take Thrawn away could alienate the entire EU fanbase. They'll always associate that retcon with the sequels. Of course, maybe I'm exaggerating the hypothetical fan outrage. Maybe people are willing to accept retcons as big as what I just described, but fans who grew up with the EU will nonetheless be upset. - The Mandalorians to being the villains of the new trilogy. A couple people have said that they should. Now, I could see them as side-villains who work for the main antagonist. But to HAVE them as the main antagonists of the story would be boring. Mandalorians are badass but that's the only thing going for them. They'll never be a threat like Palpatine was, who could turn the whole galaxy against itself, kick ass, and destroy the Jedi Order in the most unexpected way. Palpatine was interesting because he was subtle. If the Mandalorians once again posed a threat to the galaxy, it wouldn't be subtle. It would mostly be by brute strength. That, and the Mandalorians are 2-dimensional. Not only can they not carry a plot but they're not original villains. -The new movies having bad directors. I hope Disney considers having people like Brad Bird helm at least one of the movies. But I'm also afraid that they'll make a grievous error such as having Michael Bay or M. Night Shyamalan to direct the movies or at least one of them. Perhaps George Lucas will have a sudden change of heart about going into retirement and decide to direct the new set of films? -John Williams won't be directing the score. -No notable progression in technology. -There is no "New Republic" and the Rebellion will still be the Rebellion. I don't want a continuation of the Rebellion storyline. I hope Disney doesn't use that plot. -No diversity in new planets. And that's about all that I'm afraid of for the new trilogy. As for the topic, what are you worried about in regards to the new trilogy?
