    I would personally love to see a series of novels that feature the new big three post nine. I really wish that the books were made a tad more important but I understand that the movies need to have the big stories (stupid general audiences complaining about everything), but I wouldn't mind them releasing a series of novels that feature the new characters post the movies.

    What authors can we get to write this new series of SW novels with Rey and co. Post-Episode IX? Timothy Zahn(if it has Thrawn or Thrawn's descendant and the Chiss and the UR),Troy Denning,Chuck Wendig,Daniel Jose Older,Claudia Gray,Kathy Tyers(from the Bantam and NJO days)James Luceno,,Dave Wolverton(The Courtship of Princess Leia) and Matt Stover(Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor).

    I would love to see Matthew Stover lend his talents to the new canon. Shatterpoint remains one of my favourite Star Wars novels. I am more than confident that he could handle a trilogy of novels. For me, he really gets in the head of his characters and adds new layers of depth.

    Claudia Gray is another top pick and she has proven her ability to write compelling novels centred around a fan-favourite character. I believe that she would be more than up to the task.

    I would also suggest Michael A. Stackpole. He penned five of the X-Wing titles as well as the Dark Tide duology from the NJO series, so he has proven that he can take storyline and characters further than the standalone novel. I also enjoyed I, Jedi and would welcome his presence in the new canon.

    If you mean "Will Rey, Finn, and Poe star in a decent but overrated trilogy of books that resets them to their Episode VIII personalities, forgets that Star Wars isn't a military science fiction series, and gives the final victory to the author's OCs" then no, I would rather they be spared that.
