Abrams would be smart to bring in Filoni for IX

    Seriously though...I understand what you mean, which might be (IMO) mis-stated, but to me it seems that Filoni stuck with Anakins story with Clone Wars which is the foundation of the SW saga. When Rebels came around, of course it was a different story, BUT with Ahsoka incorporated into the mix, I felt like it was still firmly anchored to the foundation, and aside from the SPACE WHALES (which is no worse than milking sea cows) it stayed close to the story that we (or at least "I") have always gone back to...so to speak.

    Even though Filoni isn't solely making the decisions about his story because he's only part of the story group, I think that he has good ideas and vision, HOWEVER, I'm not sold on what small part i've seen of the upcoming Resistance, so we'll see.

    Yes, they do need to get IX right, and I'm hoping that JJ will give us a film that will at least attempt to heal some of the wounds that some fans feel that they have...I have faith in him.

    I personally think that the foundational elements of the saga need to remain (specifically the Skywalkers, Jedi, and Sith), or at least keep the references to them in the films. Taking off from those elements (IMO) would alienate too many fans whom would agree that the saga was dead in their eyes, and is no better than a sequentially numbered set of unrelated films.

    Remember that this saga is the story of the Skywalker family, and if some element of them isn't always present, they might as well stop numbering the movies.

    I have faith that it'll be fine.

    Space whales are much worse than milking sea cows.
    We know milk exists in Star Wars and has since 1977.
    It has to come from somewhere!

    Space whales are....I don't even know.
    People Vhlor that Leia was in space for 10 seconds or whatever but whales that live in space and use hyperspace are kosher!?!

    Space whales are much closer to midichlorians than sea cow milk.

    I like the idea of having Filoni come in and kind of look over some things. I think in general he is probably the best source for connecting and expanding Star Wars lore at Lucasfilm. I don't think I would want him in charge of everything or directing movies but I would love to see him overlooking the story arcs and such.
