I think he has some serious unfinished business with the original 3. He could be training a mutant rancor that Luke and his son find their selves faced off against and need to fend off. I think it could sell movies and books. He's the perfect villain. I rather see him come back than some one like Darth Maul. I think this would make for a better book series, and could maybe even inspire future spin offs for Disney. They could really do a lot with this. Malakili could even be trained in the force by now and could have become a dark Jedi. Maybe like Mara Jade or something he can be turned from the dark side and join Luke to take on the evils of the galaxy. If they are going to bring some one back it should be a main supporting character like Malakili who only has the potential to expand and be more of a developed character. Every one was left wondering about the future of Malakili who had seemed to lost everything in his life. How would a man like that coupe? I think it is logical to assume that he learned the ways of the force so that he could get even with Luke. Also that he was training a mutant rancor as he developed his force capabilities and was able to then tame such a monster. I think it's a logical choice for Disney and that it could even give them a lot of new exciting toys to manufacture. There's a lot they could do with this. We always knew that Malakili would be back , it was one of the main reasons people always felt that there would be a episode 7, 8 and 9. He was the perfect villain in the series. He had the acting chops of alan rickman . He's a tremendous talent and gave an absolutely unforgettable performance in the OT. When his part came on I knew that it was a long time coming, that the films were all working up to that moment. His scenes were top of the and really helped balance out the entire saga. Now that we're in a new triology and in a odd number of films I feel that they need a new center or balance. I feel that recasting Malakili would be a good decision and help give this new trilogy some balance. Without Malakili in the originals it would have all been off center and imbalanced as a film series. He was such a strong and important character and everything became clear and balanced with him between. How can we make another trilogy without such an important character?
