    I'm OK with the FO coming back after Episode IX in Episode X and beyond or even the RJ trilogy. But I would also prefer anything from the Unknown Regions or Rey and co. having adventures in Episodes X,XI and XII or RJ's trilogy or even Benoiff and Weiss's upcoming series battling threats like the Killiks and their fleet of Dartships from the Dark Nest trilogy or the Vaagari from Outbound Flight and Survivor's Quest and their fleet of warships. Or even the Chiss and their fleet of warships and Clawfighters then becoming allies fighting threats like the Killiks and/or the Vaagari or how about Nuso Esva and his eastern fleet of warships.

    They might survive but they’ll be changed forever. Those who survive will all get perms.

    I think aspects will survive but they'll be mostly irrelevant. A time jump could show a new Jedi Order is being trained, bringing everything back full circle.

    Why perms? Why not buzz cuts?

    Fro's! If you really want some '70's nostalgia in you Star Wars. White guys with Fro's.
    Pull off your stormtrooper helmet and... FOOM. Hair explosion.

    They won’t be in the RJ trilogy.

    They will and they’ll create a Deaf Star because in space nobody can hear you scream.

    I'm very partial to the idea of FO being almost a red herring in that IX won't come down to a Resistance vs. FO showdown like in ROTJ. I think it'd make for a much more interesting story if we see the FO fall apart internally as Finn maybe leads a stormtrooper rebellion and the galaxy at large rises up against them. Let's be real, the FO vs. Resistance conflict itself is one of the weaker aspects of this trilogy. This direction would also finally break the Empire vs. Rebels mold of this whole plotline and I think provide a better, more thematically appropriate ending for all 9 movies.

    I think the setup is there in TLJ, as I think that movie introduces themes that call for a resolution beyond just a simple military victory in both the force/military plotlines.

    Maybe the FO falls and is replaced by a bunch of oligarchs a la post-Soviet Russia?
