    Yeah, the Vong mix the barbarian vibe with religious zealotry. They are certainly an option for future films. Maybe too dark a visual for movies, but that would make for a different SW experience.

    One thing is certain : if the anthology movies are small scale affairs and any villain will do, the next SW saga -whether it's called ep 10/11/12 or has a brand new name- will have force sensitive bad guy(s). They may not be Sith but they' be affiliated to the dark side of the force , and will use weapons that can be used dor lightsabers battles.

    No way there's a new jedi-focused saga without adepts of the dark side of the force or lightsaber battles!

    I prefer banal authoritarian institutions as villains. More interesting. Though a touch of demonic evil at their core is good. Basically, the magic balance the OT (and Rogue One and Mandalorian) struck well. If the antagonists are all snarling evil people wielding magic, I'll lose interest.

    I still think Dark Rey would be money. Pure gold. I literally gasped when I saw Dark Rey in the Rise of Skywalker trailer...but then...DREAM SEQUENCE. Aw shoot.

    Well usually in STAR WARS there are internal, real world villains and the external, metaphysical villains. In terms of reality and real world grounding an oligarchic Corporate Sector Authority or CSA with villains at the top would be interesting. The creation of private armies and security firms hint back to THX-1138. An enforcement arm in the cycle of privatization, deprivation and extreme inequality in the galaxy. Not only does it give a patina of reality but makes great allegory for our current economic malaise.

    1. A threat related to Trade Federation shenanigans (perhaps within the scope of a tv show).

    2. Villains entirely different from what we've seen on the screen before (no Sith, Hutts, Empire, FO, etc)

    We need a Lor San Tekka series: STAR WARS: A San Tekka Story. Who is this character and his relation to the Church of the Force. Lor San Tekka and the Last Crusade.

    If we are getting a film about ace pilots I think it is high time to get actual pirates as a threat, in the absence of an Imperial fleet. One notorious pirate whose crew are skilled pilots and attack and board ships midflight. The films have not really offered any sort of ace enemy pilot with an identity.

    We need white collar crime criminals in the galaxy. Those who turn paper into money and use technology and algorithms to create esoteric financial instruments. Darth Collateralized Debt Obligation.

    I actually would love to see a GFFA movie where there isn't a villain.

    I think it would be really cool if they explored the origins of hyper-space travel and/or how different systems handled being reached for the first time by other systems. It would be fascinating if they could make a movie where a technologically advanced world such as Coruscant is missing key information that a less equipped world discovers and brings to Coruscant. So the "antagonist" is something like the inability to understand each other initially, navigating a galaxy with "primitive" maps and finding a way to accept that the "other" has something you don't, and of course, somehow the force plays a part in their ability to ultimately come to an understanding and achieve progress on a galactic level.

    I’d love to see a Star Wars film about exploration and the yearning for the open road that doesn’t have a villain. Only the obstacles one encounters in the wild.

    I’m talking about “Henry F. Potter. The richest and meanest man in town”.

    One of the greatest antagonists of all time!

    We need something fresh. I hope all the things they do now with Ahsoka, Mando, Grogu do not lead to the ST but that their story is happening in addition to the ST. We saw the Ghost in IX so I have my fingers crossed that some of the characters will meet Rey/Poe/Finn after IX to join a fight against some SW Thanos. How about some force using cult from a different galaxy far far away. I'd even give them another bigger badder Death Star :p.

    I have a feeling (and a desire) that we'll see a revanchist Mandalorian Empire, under the autocratic and expansionist rule of Bo-Katan or someone else, as the primary antagonist of the post-ST world. I would much prefer that to some orc-like extragalactic enemy ala the Vong or the Grysk.

    I believe those are the two options in the menu. They are the ones LFL has had in the oven for some years now.
