    After I posted this I did realize this question was posted recently as well. But hey, at least this has some different characters in the poll so it's not an exact duplicate.

    Definitely Obi-Wan, who is spending his time on Tatooine watching over Luke. I would like to have this movie structured like a character study. The villain of this movie should be Mace Windu (Yes, Mace Windu!).

    I don't really care about the other characters on that list, but I definitely don't want a Maul or Ahsoka movie. You can use Qui-Gon and as mentioned before Mace in the Kenobi movie.

    Why Mace as a villain? And why him during that time frame when he's already dead?

    In that case, I would run for JABBA.
    How did he became a Crime Mastermind.
    How was he dealing with the Empire (was he unknown, or an ally, or an enemy of the Empire ?)
    How did he use to recruit the bounty hunters.
    How was he respected by the bounty hunters and killers, having only two ridiculous little arms (unable to hold a weapon), and no legs to run.
    How did he achieve to be a master villain - even if he was just a slug.
    How could he live on a desert planet (slugs need humidity).
    And since SOLO has been screened : how did he deal with FS and "former Sith Lord" Maul.

    Think about it. Mace Windu survived his fall and feels betrayed. Betrayed by everyone. The Jedi, the Senate, the Republic. It fills him with rage and madness. He only has one goal: kill Luke Skywalker to prevent the same mistakes happening again.
    A crazy Windu played by an older Samual L. Jackson... This could be awesome!

    I could imagine this movie split in two story lines: the current time with Obi-Wan watching over Luke and a past time line which leads up to Kenobi's plot featuring Windu who tries to find Skywalker and gets more and more crazy.

    I don't know. What I think would be rather nice and what I'd like to see is if - at least once - a character who gets killed just stays dead.

    I do think this would be an interesting story and fun to watch. But I like the Mace character a lot and wouldn't like to see him turn evil just because Anakin turned on him. And also...

    ...I feel the same as this quote.

    I’m apprehensive about a movie with a villain protagonist. I don’t think that suits Star Wars very well. The only exception, as I see it, are scum villains like Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt or whatever; these moves in the gray shades of the galaxy where a protagonist story is easier to do for them (i.e. they can be heroes against bad guys even worse than them). An all-out-evil protagonist would be like… I don’t know… a WWII movie with Hermann Göring or Heinrich Himmler as protagonists, and it wouldn’t be very Star Wars-y.

    Still, I’m sure it could be done (at the very least as an intriguing prequel/character backstory movie) although I remain skeptical. Bad guys, especially in a b/w franchise like Star Wars, works best as antagonists, I think.

    Finally, I voted for an Obi-Wan plot, which I think is pretty much a given. As a bonus, it doesn’t really matter if such a movie lies far in the future, as Ewan McGregor could spend another 2 decades maturing into his role before becoming “too old”. (That said, it is probably wise to put a Kenobi move at least a few years before ANH so that the difference in actors are easier to accept; that, or we’ll have proper face morph tech at that time, allowing new actors to wear whatever face the film-makers would want).

    PS: I would also dig a film, or even series, featuring Ashoka Tano. I didn’t care for her at first, but she’s pretty cool now :D

    To me it would appear like a nonsense.
    Mace was mastered. This is the highest level of wisdom.
    Anakin wasn't mastered because he had flaws.
    Those who were mastered were the best among the best.
    And I cannot buy a master can fall.
    (This is just my point of view).

    Since Cloak of Deception is one of my favorite SW novels, and I miss actual Jedi being in the movies, I’d like to see a prequel with a similar plot line. A terrorist organization wreaking havoc on the Trade Federation and interrupting Palpatine’s machinations, and the Jedi attempt to halt their activities, while the actual enemy IS the Trade Federation. Obviously the main characters wouldn’t be Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, but that’s what makes Rogue One so good, brand new characters and introducing new ideas to the saga.

    Not an option, but I totally think a movie that focuses on all the bounty hunters/crime syndicates would do well. Wouldn't get bogged down focusing too much on one single character and could add some interesting back story to some characters (bounty hunters, hutts, maybe Maul). I would love to see an Obi Wan movie, but would be interested to see how they would tackle that without it being just him wandering around the desert.

    I would totally love a Stormtroopers movie in the style of Full Metal Jacket.

    I like the idea of the stand alone films, but the execution has been spotty at best. Just randomly putting out a film based on X or Y or Z doesn't make much sense. I think the stand alone films should be related to the trilogy films. Used as a way to flesh out the story, characters, etc. A friend of mine who likes TLJ (I do not) said it would have been a great idea to have a film or two that told the story of Luke leading up to VII first. Then release VII. Then have a film or two to develop the characters of Rey and Kylo. THEN do VIII. I totally agree.

    Having said that while I would love an Ahsoka film I voted for Obi Wan.

    I would love to see a prequel film about Qui-Gon Jinn and his Master. I loved Rogue One but I really want a good Jedi film. Jedi and Padawan on their journey. I read about it allot in the comic books that Dark Horse published I'd like to see it on the big screen. Marvel comics' Kanan series or I, Jedi novel would be great references for a film.

    I think a lot of people feel this way, and I'd like to see something based either during or shortly before the prequels, like say the backstory of Sifo Dyas and how the idea for the GAR was drawn up, OR EVEN something like an "Outbound Flight" type of story where many Jedi are involved only to be mostly killed at the hands of a shadowy and merciless army in the unknown regions, and at at the end of the movie, out of the shadows steps.....SNOKE.

    Something like that perhaps, but give me Jedi. SW has somewhat gotten away from the Jedi, and yes, I know the current story line, but we keep getting movies that are far removed from the Jedi, and a lot of people miss them.

    I’d love one that tells the story of Galen Erso from Rogue One. It could be a real thriller, showing all the devious schemes and close shaves that he must have had trying to sabotage their plans for the Death Star. It would have some great characters in it: Tarkin, Darth Vadar and Palpatine, and we’d get to see the Death Star from the inside as well.
