    Mara Jade, hopefully.

    I really want her to be voiced by Karen Gillan.

    We're getting Rukh. It's possible someone else will be, before Season 4's Rukh episode airs though.

    Mara! Laura Dern's character hasn't been revealed yet--I think it will be Mara Jade. Rey needs a mother. Why not bring back a fan-favorite character?

    It's hard to say just one character. I can't really decide on one. Revan, Exar Kun, and Kreia will probably be made canon. Even if they return as holocrons or something on Yavin 4.

    Mark my words, it will be Cole Fardreamer.

    And if not him, it will be some sort of Viper.

    Yup - just as "Janson" - Star Wars In 100 Scenes confirms his first name is Wes.

    Even if it wasn't completely overseen by the story group (being one of the first post-announcement books published) - Wookieepedia seems to be going with "canon till proven otherwise".

    I'm hoping for Mr. Jedi Master K'Kruhk. Hat optional.

    But I have a gut feeling that we'll see Mara Jade sooner than the bad ass Whiphid.

    Well, we've had a few recently made canon again. The next place we could get some are the books coming out over the summer, which I think are Inferno Squad and Phasma. So it seems an Imperial officer or someone would be most likely.

    However, I think we've already gotten it, but just hasn't been confirmed. Old character in a new location. That island Luke is on at the end of TFA that's shaped like a mountain? Mount Sorrow.

    I've mentioned it before but Revan is probably the second highest after Thrawn I imagine that people would want to see back in canon (Mara Jade would be third probably) and given the push for his Black Series figure I have a feeling the Story Group are hard at work trying to figure out a way to reintroduce him and once they do they'll reveal him in a big way like they did Thrawn at Celebration. Plus there are things that exist now that could indicate a return.

    For one the Mandalorian VS Jedi war from the Old Republic is canon or some kind of version of it is because of Rebels. Revan did play a part in this battle in Legends so whose to say he didn't play a role again in the new canon? Obviously things would be tweaked.

    Another reason I could see him returning is because of how his views fall in line with the various Force beings we've encountered. Someone who fell between light and dark and eventually came to master both like the Bendu has. Well until TOR when he separated into two beings and had to reestablish his connection and combine his two halves into one again but that's another story.

    So yeah I'm going to guess Revan maybe then Mara Jade. For a character to return they need to make sure it makes sense and wouldn't contradict anything they've set up before and how things are now.

    Kyle Katarn, sole surviving member of Luke's New Jedi Order. Would make a great set of new games set circa sequel trilogy. They can also remake the original Dark Forces, removing the now non-canon first level regarding the Death Star plans.
