Like many people here I am very excited for the next chapter of Star Wars, and I am certain that whatever story they come up with will be very interesting. However, we know next to nothing about the film at this stage, so speculation is all we have. I thought it would be fun to post your ideas of how you would open Star Wars Episode VII. I'll start: After the opening titles, the camera pans down to a small fighter (X-Wing? Something new?) traveling through the blackness of space. The ship goes past the camera and the shot follows it until you see a gigantic gas planet, and orbiting it is the volcanic world of Mustafar. We descend through the clouds with the ship until it lands in a charred clearing (not the same place from Episode III but maybe close to it). A lone hooded figure steps out of the ship and walks to the edge of the clearing, to a precipice. The person removes the hood and we realize it is a grey haired, aging Jedi. It is Luke Skywalker. Luke continues to take in the hellish landscape, and then finally closes his eyes and bows his head. "Father. Can you hear me? We haven't spoken in a very long time. I am finally here. I've put it off for far too long, I know. Father?" The voice of Anakin is heard, as if carried on the wind. "Luke. You have come to the the place where the last vestiges of who I was once was was burned away. You will never fully understand why I did what I did, nor should you. You had the chance to make the same mistakes I did, but you didn't. And that's what's important." And so on and so forth. Something like that. I figured Mustafar was the final place Luke wanted to go to understand his father and what he went through, and it took him a long time to go there, as it was the most painful for both him and the spirit of his father. I thought after this conversation, Luke gets a message from someone from Coruscant about whatever the crisis is (the overall plot of the movie). It's just a way to reconnect with Luke, his father, and the journey they both went through. Anyone else have ideas on how you would open the next Star Wars movie?
