    Me too. Maybe a failed and thought dead apprentice.

    I also wouldn't mind a Padme zombie monster. ;)

    (I just watched AOTC again last night and Padme already sounds like a zombie)

    One of my ideas was that Vader sends a failed apprentice on a wild planet full of monsters and dangers to prove his worth. He never returned. Vader in term assumed he was dead. But he was wrong.

    Sith are intelligent beasts. If we could get one who is more openly bestial (without being an idiot) this would be great.

    Update: Padme and her decoy posse were stoned out of their minds. There is room for this plot device!

    Does the Oldman confirmation on the fact that 'they have inquired' hint at a living dead theme in the ST, since Oldman played Dracula for Coppola? Just a little harmless speculation.

    I'm hoping if one can jump into the Force, perhaps the opposite is true too? How epic would it be to have Ewan fighting alongside Mark?

    And then there's that Gary thing.....

    They can do all that and more in the inevitable Marvel/SW crossover comics were they can easily fulfill every fanwish there could possibly be.

    But these kinds of "plottwists" have no place in the episodes.

    In an effort to re-start the discussion about who the baddie will be, I will pose this question to you all:

    With the script done, obviously they know who the villain is, so with all the talk about creating a new continuity for Star Wars, do you think that the way they use the villain may be a little different than originally intended? And if so, do you think the villain will be used to close this saga, or used purposely to keep it open?

    To me, it looks like they want set thing sup so that everything is properly related. That said, I would think it made the most sense to close this saga with Episode 9, and then move forward in an unrestricted sense with a new saga that does not interfere with the events of the current one.

    In terms of the villain, this would point towards a fully connected, somewhat familiar character for this trilogy.

    That's what I tried to explain in another thread. I think each saga trilogy (if that's even the franchise business model moving forward after 9), is in of itself it's own story. Though yes, there are familiar characters that may loosely or tightly connect the triune story lines. The PT and OT were tightly connected due to Anakin. As of yet, unknown how tightly the ties will bind the ST. Looking beyond #9, I believe there would have to be a main narrative, some may still refer to that as "the saga", that continues to chart a course through SW space and time. In it's wake would a spin-off society vigorously thrive, depositing Force laden roe to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. Whether or not "the saga" continues to focus on the Skywalkers' remains to be seen. It is entirely plausible it may evolve to showcase a new journey; which I would welcome.

    Edit:

    Your postulating that a villain set up might occur in the ST, and carry over into future movies agrees with my point. A "tie" that brings the main narrative forward.

    I think you misunderstood my post.....

    What I meant was the villain in the upcoming ST will be related to that saga, and will be defeated as final closure to that saga, leaving room for the new heroes to move into a "new beginning" with future movies and sagas to come.

    Thats my opinion.....

    And I was asking if others felt either the same or rather that a villain was being set up to continue this saga to another trilogy or more.

    Would be an interesting idea if the new baddie was from a world that was attacked by rebels during the alliance, unbeknownst to the Big3 or other surviving rebels. Therefore in their mind, they are the good guys while the new Republic are the bad guys.

    I think Darth_Pevra should be the villain. That avatar has been freaking me out for months

    It's just that they are the fat-free kind of evil. The diet kind. The "I count my evil calories at every slaughter meal" kind of evil!

    Palpatine didn't underestimate the power of The Force. Rather, he overestimated the power of The Force. He believed his visions of Luke turning to the dark side and Vader staying on the dark side and believed that the power of the dark side would prevent Vader from ever sacrificing himself.
