I don't think they're going to toss huge chunks of EU out at all. Only a few minor pieces as before.
1. NO resurrected characters. Old characters can be referenced in dialogue (or statues, busts etc)
2. No Lucas at all past the idea/treatment stage. At. All.
3. No/very little EU material.
Those are really my biggest wishes. Unpopular? Maybe, maybe not.
My unpopular opinion? It will be universally loved by all.
- Is it unpopular to want SW7 to restore my respect for Darth Vader as the ultimate badass in the universe? I miss him.
- Is it unpopular to want SW7 to taken seriously by the people in control of it, and not be used merely as a way to make money from poop and fart jokes for 8 year-olds?
- Is it unpopular to want SW7 to be about the characters again?
- Is it unpopular to want SW7 to cause the franchise to become something more than the definition of "Bad Movies" in the zeitgeist?
No rule of two.....as I have said being a "Dark Lord of theSith" meant you are second in command of a group of two.
I want a Gungan Jedi.
Search yousaa feelings, yousaa know them to be bombad! I spake!
Also, I want and old mentor Luke in it (who will die in the first one), but no Leia and PLEASE no Han!
I want Qui-Gon's force ghost to be prevalent in the the whole trilogy.
I want a double load of CGI and a absolute ban on puppetry!
I want a good guy with a double-sided yellow lightsaber!
I want Mandalorians to very prevalent characters, especially as infamous heroes (republic commando style)
I want it to be new but to attach itself to both the OT & the PT, so as to reenforce in everyone's minds that the PT is here to stay and it is truly part of the Saga.
I want more Twi'lek females!!
I have no interest in Tattoine, and don't want to see any Wookies, or Ewoks!
Power to unification of the PT & OT. Glad the Palpatine Saga IS commplete.
I'm of two minds about how much the ST conflicts the Zahn novels.
On one hand, I know Lucas would never ever follow someone else's lead in that sense, and I'm very excited to have the mystery and unknown of a brand new series of stories.
On the other hand, I do feel as though Zahn's books are pretty much the perfect sequel trilogy, and feel more like the OT than anything I've ever read or seen ( including the PT and CW), and if the ST ends up not being as classic and definitive as those books, I probably will be pretty disappointed.
I hope the get rid of the episode numbers. I know this will be a post Jedi story and will be somewhat Episode 7, but probably not quite the Episode 7 that we wanted from before. I don't know actually. But either way. Id like to ditch those now. I think. Episode numbers is a great way to distinguish George's movies and the "Skywalker Saga" Getting rid of episode numbers now frees them up to go anywhere and everywhere they want. Just want to see Star Wars and then the Crawl starts with the Movie's title. I know this is unpopular though.
I also firmly would like to see a scene between Hamill as Luke and Neeson as Qui-Gon force ghost. My hunch is that that is unpopular, though Im not sure. I think it would be bloody doggone brilliant though.
You know, part of me would like to see that too(the other part thinks that's crazy since they have no connection to each other). But it would be cool to see two of the main actors from 2 different trilogies interact in the new movie.
And since obviously Alec Guinness can't force-ghost back either, part of me wants to see the force-ghost de-aging in the form of Ewan McGregor interact with Mark Hamill(but only if this doesn't tamper with Alec's ghost in the OT).
I would love to see an interim trilogy about the foundation and growth of the rebel alliance. By the time Luke enters the scene, it's a battle-ready organization capable of taking out a death star. But a story about the early years would be nice. They could tell a story taking place over just a few months to a few years. Darth Vader could be the central villain. What could be better?
I think that is the territory that would have/will be covered by the television series.
I love this idea
My unpopular opinion? No "new republic", the alliance simply restores the Senate, and they vote in a new Emperor, maybe Leia. No "new jedi order". Let Luke be the last. NO SITH. Having sith makes the entire PT and OT irrelevant. The whole point of Anakin's story was for nothing if there are Sith all over the place 20 years later.

I like that.
I often wonder how badass the star wars universe would have been in an 18 cert. I definitely agree that they should leave the kids and silly nonsense behind, even though they probably wont.
How about a whole sith army. massive war.
Isn't that what SWTOR is?
dont know what swtor is please expand.
The Old Republic. The games are rated Mature and generally feature difficult morality choices that deal in murder, theft, slavery, racism, torture, and so forth. I would love a series of Old Republic movies, but they'd have to keep that dark theme, and I don't know if LFL or Disney are ready to make a rated R or borderline PG-13 Star Wars film.
My unpopular opinion is the idea of the Emperor returning, but instead of it being the *actual* Emperor, it's a clone who thinks he's the Emperor, but has the same force potential. Like TFU II's clone of Starkiller. I wouldn't want the Emperor back in Episode VII though, Episode VIII more like it.
1. No EU at all. It's not pure canon anyway so who cares?
2. Only young Jedi. I don't want to see a huge, thriving order but a very small, struggling group.
3. No Jedi Leia. I'd like to see Luke keep to traditional Jedi ways. If Leia marries Han, then I'd like her see her develop Force abilities, but not a Jedi Knight.
4. No real presence of the Empire at all.
5. No bounty hunters crawling all over the place.
The dialogue and acting in VII would be too realistic at the expense of the visual storytelling.
