    I'll do my best - it basically plays out over the course of 19 books. Essentially, in the distant past a sentient planet cut them off from their ability to access the Force in the Jedi sense (this ability was part of existing lore in the Legends continuity, albeit not on this scale). As a consequence, the Jedi are not able to sense them in the Force. The books are somewhat inconsistent as to what that means as far as the Force affecting them. However, over the course of the series a few Jedi do bond with Yuuzhan Vong technology, and do "bridge the gap" between their Force powers and the Yuuzhan Vong presence in the Force - and are able to sense them and impact them the way the would normal beings. The main character spends a significant of one of the books thinking about how the Yuuzhan Vong could exist outside the Force, and comes to the conclusion that they cannot and do not. This leads directly into him learning to sense the Yuuzhan Vong in the Force.

    Bottom line: early books tease the idea that the existence of the Yuuzhan Vong could imply the Force is much smaller than previously believed, but in the end it really shows that it is far bigger than even the Jedi believe.

    Think electro-magnetic spectrum.
    We can't see Gamma Rays, Radio waves, etc. But with tools we can see them.
    Just like Anakin using a lambent Crystal in his lightsaber to sense the Yuuzhan Vong.
    Or Jacen and his slave seed to sense the Yuuzhan Vong.
    Or Tahiri using her shaping to sense the Yuuzhan Vong.
    And the Yuuzhan Vong's connection to Zonama Sekot harkens back to the symbiote circle Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon were talking to Boss Nass with.
    There is more than Light and Dark.

    Absolutely!!! Some of the best characters come into their own as heroes. There is so much storyline, and the way they tie everything together. We get the "Lost Tribe of the Sith," Zonoma Sekot, Imperial Remnant and Republic working together. The Chiss involvement. I think Disney should do a Boba Fett movie about him not being able to return home because of Darth Caedus releasing the nano-killer bomb on Mandalore, then go back and do Yuuzhan Vong invasion as a live action T.V. series. He would tell about it in the movie, then we'd actually see it play out. Like Clone Wars. I'm soooo ready to see Corran Horn(best Jedi) in action. ...and "the Ganner!"

    They could have done it after TLJ too. Have Supreme Kylo, have Resistance trying to get it's stuff together, have Hux contact Vong or whoever to help him overthrow Supreme Kylo. After all, FO spend decades in Unknown Regions so they must've had secret resources that weren't Palaptine's old SD BS. Boom, you have 3 sides:

    Hux and part of FO loyal to him + Vong
    Supreme Kylo and his loyalists
    Resistance filling trying to fill in their ranks

    second and third have to make an uneasy alliance against the first. You get material for more than 1 movie. Basically treat TFA and TLJ as a 2-parter and then continue with unspecified number of movies, as many as needed to tell the story.

    Oh well. Not saying it would have been good but certainly different from Poor Man's ROTJ.

    I think there are rumors that maybe Ran Johnson’s trilogy could actually be like New jedi order with yuuzhan vong vs Chriss in his trilogy.

    Obviously it’s not going be like the books of the EU/legends. It would of course be a reboot.

    But we still don’t know if Rian Johnson’s trilogy is going to be about or if it’s going to happen.

    If his trilogy is going to be about the yuuzhan vong ,becomes successful it spans into multiple projects of more movies, tv shows, like Star Wars franchise within a franchise, count me in.

    I hope not, tbh.

    I simply do not think that the Yuuzhan Vong are good villains.

    Stupid concept, and stupid execution of that concept. Too simplistic and overwrought. Doesn’t comport with the complexity of the GFFA. They feel more He-Man or Power Rangers than Star Wars.

    They just don't have the "presence" that a Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine would have.

    The Yuuzhan Vong should be used in the inevitable animated series that links the OT to the ST. They would be a good villain for Luke, Han, Leia and the New Republic.

    I am sure they will be in the Ezra/Thrawn new show but they will be called The Grysk instead

    Honestly, judging by the amount of EU material that's been repurposed for the new canon, not just for the relatively niche books and comics, but some of which is soon appearing in the wildly mainstream movies and Disney+ original series, including a crossover even between three series that's clearly leading to a confrontation with Thrawn, and a whole Rogue Squadron movie... I'm not so sure that the Yuuzhan Vong are off the table. I'm still not crazy about the way they're portrayed in the EU, but I wouldn't be opposed any longer to see a different take on them.

    Hmm... I’m not huge on the Vong as an overall concept, but there are interesting elements. I like the idea of the villains being disconnected from the force, but perhaps doing so through training a la Luke in TLJ rather than a “sentient planet” doing it for them would be a better story.

    I’m simultaneously wary and intrigued by the idea of a hive mind species. It certainly runs the risk of not “feeling like Star Wars”, but if properly executed it could be interesting and refreshing. It has been done well in other stories in the past, notably Ender’s Game.

    I’d need a good reason for them destroying planet after planet beyond simply evil for the sake of it, preferably it being the only way for their species to survive or something else that elicits just a slight twinge of sympathy for them.
