I don't want to see Luke and Anakin's achievements at the end of RotJ become meaningless.
I don't want to see a 3rd Death Star lol. The 2nd one was dumb enough.
I want Luke to seem like the most powerful force user in the saga and if a Jedi Order is already established I want it to be noticeably different then the prequel Jedi Order.
Ok, my turn! But its very similar to what a number of your already suggested.
No EU stuff!
Not another Death Star.
No Gungans, Ewoks and kids!
But its Disney, so there might be plenty more Ewoks and kids.
Any character coming back from the dead, or character that was thought to be dead.
Jar Jar Binks
I don't want to see anything that would be strictly fan service. For example, I just know they'll find a way to put Darth Vader in these movies if it f'n kills them. Even if it's in the smallest of capacities, the thought of smearing Darth Vader (and possibly Yoda) all over the new merchandise would just be too tempting for any studio to pass up. Unfortunately Darth Vader is dead. Yoda is dead. Boba Fett is dead. They belong nowhere in this new trilogy.
And most importantly, as I've said before... I'd prefer it if they ignored the prequels completely. Leave them in limbo and pretend they never happened. There is no need for this trilogy to have to reference anything that happened during them. I don't want to see one prequel element show up anywhere in the new movies. The only way to really restore and enrich the cultural legacy of Star Wars - in my eyes - is to wash away the stain those duds left behind.
We all know they exist, but please Disney... leave them in limbo.
I was thinking, along the same lines as palpatine;
I know its awesome, and super cool and evil. but I would like a new iconic darkside power. Something that makes the HEROX (and the audiance) go, "Ohhhhh Effffffffff"
No Death Star, Tatooine, Hoth, Bespin, Endor, Naboo, Kamino, Geonosis, Mustafar...
Gungans and Ewoks get no luuv here. Well, unless we go to Naboo or Endor again, they won't be featured heavily.
I'd have no problem with them, if they are kept in the background for a short amount of time. There was interesting Gungan bounty hunter in The Force Unleashed though...
But seriously, I doubt Lucasfilm and Disney will introduce more cutsie stuff after the RotJ and the TPM, but if they do, at least create something new that we can bash.
Yep. The most important thing they need to keep in mind. No destroying of what they did. Anything that concerns their future and what happens to their kids is fair game, though. This is why I am strict advocate of just jumping a hundred years ahead, so it avoids diminishing all their achievements.
Actually, there could be a way to get Vader in as a cameo and have it also work thematically.
NB - I'm not taking the EU into consideration at all as I don't know enough about it.
What if our hero is Luke's son or daughter and during their training which Luke is overseeing (as part of the trials?) they have a cave-like encounter with Vader, just as Luke did in ESB.
Obviously you put a fresh spin on it so it feels visually different but essentially you have a Vader apparition fighting his Grandson. The lesson learnt is that darkness rests in all of us (just as it did on Dagobah), only this time it is not the Padawan that has brought the darkness with them, it is a darkness that is still linked to Luke. This is how Luke's son learns of Vader's true identity (something that Luke and Leia have kept to themselves) and would prove a strong warning. I imagine that despite Jedi's quick wrap-up, it's likely that the truth about Vader would have had quite a lingering and profound effect on Luke.
It would be a like a combination of Luke's chat with Uncle Owen, Ben Kenobi's talk about Luke's father and the Dagobah cave all in one and is a legit, pre-established way to get Vader back on the big screen with cloning or time travel.
It may be too close to what we've already seen but if you could put a fresh spin on it it could work.
No resurrected dead characters. Nobody surviving getting bisected, tossed down a Death Star reactor shaft or thrown into a sarlacc pit. I'd rather watch a movie full of farting Gungans than that.
I'm debating whether I want to see any Skywalkers at all or whether a story with all new characters would be better. I'm leaning towards the latter, although I think a film centered around Luke and Leia's children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren would be fine.
I don't want new actors playing established characters.
Absolutely, unequivocally no
Without even a mention, no
Not even a reference
Please. I am so tired of every character slumming through some Tunisian desert filled with huts and hovels. Go somewhere else!
No recasting of Luke, Han and Leia.
We don't need to worry about Star Wars being "Disneyfied" with lots of kids and cutsie characters running around. Lucasfilm will be making the movie, Disney just happens to own Lucasfilm now. Disney owned Miramax when Pulp Fiction was made, and that had rape, murder and drug abuse.
No Expanded Universe - i love to read it but i don't feel that's a right way for SW movies.
No for kids as a center heroes.
I don't want to see any recasting, none whatsoever. I don't want to see any kind of remake. I hope Disney doesn't add a new dorky-cutesy character of any kind. And no child should play a leading character (it obviously didn't work in TPM). A teenage lead might work, however. Also, the overall look/feel of the SW universe should not be changed.
If any kid from radio Dizney is involved, if Lizzy Maguire or Hannah Montana ... I'm leaving Star Wars Forever.
No Papa Palpie...
No Harrison Ford, I'm sorry...he has too big of a screen presence. Luke would be fine, but Harrison Ford would take us back to han solo, Indiana Jones and is just too bold and loud for a new film.
Jar Jar and the flying fridge.
No clones, Vong, child leads, One Sith, killiks, or mortis(however that's spelled.)
Star Wars has always thrived on it's unique blend of science fiction imagery and fantasy storytelling. Because of this, a lot of common tropes and themes of both genres have never been touched before in Star Wars, especially not in the films. Many of them for good reason.
For example, I would never want to see a "merits of artificial intelligence vs organic life" theme in a SW film. Star Wars droids are probably the only robots in science fiction that aren't constantly questioning the meaning of their existence, and I'm so happy for that. No need for Star Wars to tell a "thought provoking" (i use that lightly) story that's been done dozens of times.
Dystopian future. Just... dystopian future.
Time travel, either forward or backward. We need to focus on the here and now. Episode VII should be approximately 25-30 years after ROTJ.
