    Voted Qui-Gon, but it was honestly a toss-up between him and Ahsoka. Both feel like they could do well with a standalone, while for Obi-Wan I'd want either a tv show or a trilogy.

    I want an animated TV series about Luke and company set between ANH and TESB followed by a post-Jedi series.

    I think a set of animated movies would be great too.

    In regards to live action movies I want Luke Skywalker stand-alone movies and young Han Solo sequels.

    Is there any whispers of what “A Star Wars Story” is next?

    I know there is all sorts of chatter about their future but I think Lucasfilm is simply keeping things quiet.

    Only voted for Obi because there wasn't a "none" option.

    I've said this before, but I'd love to see a film or series following the journey of promising podracer as he/she navigates their way through the morally-ambiguous underbelly of the sport.

    They should do one of Bane, since he is more a historical figure in Sith/Jedi lore, the books based on him are some of the best, imo.

    Kenobi

    Vader Jedi purge horror/thriller

    Qu'ra/Maul dark times underworld series. Two or three 8 episode seasons maybe.

    I don't think I particularly care about much else in this era/part of the galaxy.

    Well...to be honest I'd like to see more younger Han, Chewie, and Lando (other than about all of Han's backstory was burned in his Al Bundy big weekend origin flick) but they could pop in the Dark Times Underworld Tales for the battle of Kiniv or some original adventures a handful of times.

    I voted for Qui Gon Jinn, as I’ve found him to be the most interesting character in the prequels. That being said, I think there’s a lot that could be done now with Mon Mothma. She has a very interesting and intriguing long-term arc that spans from the Galactic Civil War to the rise and fall of the Empire. The “Aftermath” Trilogy and “Bloodline” already filled out a lot of story points, but there’s a lot of material there for a filmmaker to work with, especially if they are willing to set their picture over the course of several decades.

    My third choice for a stand-alone: “The Tragedy Of Jek Porkins.”

    ...I also would welcome a stand-alone film about Lor San Tekka. He’s very mysterious and had deep connections to Luke, Leia, and Ben Solo (plus possibly more). He was also the leader of Jakku’s Church of the Force, which seems fascinating. It wouldn’t surprise me if we learn more about him in IX, and he seems to be a compelling character for a stand-alone feature.

    I would like to see a film which shows what happened when mace killed palpatine and Anakin joined the master council. Everyone would be happy. The film would take its place 20 years after ROTS and shows something like Luke and Leia are padawans etc. There may be some other villain because palpatine is dead.

    Combine that with Zulu and you might just have something.

    A film on the Praetorian guard would be pretty cool. Have it with the same atmosphere as those Japanese samurai or ninja films. Or chinese martial arts films.

    n

    Knights of Ren horror. With their ability to manipulate perception and emotion to induce hallucinations and force people to relive their worst nightmares. Think The Evil Within meets traditional slasher horror. Terror made flesh stalking down the blood-soaked corridors of a Resistance ship searching for survivors. You cannot conceal your presence from them.

    Or Snoke. Have him 'possess' Resistance and New Republic figures before making a bloody mess of them like Fettel did to Becket in FEAR 3.

    Absolutely Obi Wan Kenobi. I would like a movie between TROS and ANH. A training with Qui Gon Jinn like mentioned in Ep 3 by Yoda.

    Anakin/Vader directly after ROTS. I’d like to see Anakin dealing with his change, loss of Pademe, establishing the Empire and hunting down remaining Jedi. Lastly I would like to see Vader use his power in evil ways that make everyone fear him.

    That would indeed be interesting. A story from the perspective of the clones and any former Republic soldiery in this transition period would be interesting. How would Vader/Anakin be viewed by them?



    With regards to the whole evil power thing, yeah I can get that. Indeed I have several ideas. But not all of them suitable for younger audiences.

    Movies I'd love to see.

    1- Vader Trilogy- Hunting remaining Jedi (including Obi-Wan) up to ANH (Remember Kenobi thought Anakin died in EPIII but knew he was Vader in EP4..what happened in between).

    2- Young Palpatine/Plaguies

    3- Lost 20

    4- 50-100 years after TROS when the Jedi order has been rebuilt and Republic restored. Introduce new villains

    I wanted to write a screenplay about Bail Organa. It would be a kind of profile in courage as he tries to perform his duties in the Senate in public, while privately he's one of the few who know about all the different Rebel cells. He can connect all the dots, which makes him a high value target should he ever arouse suspicion. Which, of course, he does. He finds it increasingly harder to walk that tightrope between his two lives as the Emperor starts to realize he's a potential threat. The story would have climaxed with a desperate attempt at actual blockade running using the Tantive IV, and with Palpatine determined to make an example of Alderaan to the rest of the galaxy....

    I don't know if this counts as a "standalone" movie but I'm wondering if we're not headed for a feature film revolving around the Mandalore plot, Bo Katan, Gideon and the Darksaber, etc. I just don't think there is room for it to be resolved in The Mandalorian alone, or at least not room for all of it.

    That's a good point, actually. Say Disney & LFL are still set on releasing a film for December 22 2023, then doing a 2h:15m "episode" using the established Mando team and production could be a "simple" way to get there. Perhaps it could cap off the entire The Mandalorian series, even.

    A Qui-Gon story about him searching out old prophecies for The Chosen One. It ends with him being sent on the mission to Tatooine.

    For those not on this list, I've always wanted to see a "Dark Chosen One" in the vein of an old samurai film about Darth Bane. I want to see how the Sith treated their Sithaari, how he tried to follow the path of Revan (not knowing Revan turned back good...or maybe knowing and realizing it was a good strategy anyways). I want to see the Jedi and some scared Sith team up to bring Bane down as he brings the world the Sith have known for so long crumbling into ashes. Have it parallel what Anakin does to the Jedi later on, but this time make it intentional. I want it to be tragic and awe-inspiring...like a Superman origin story in terms of power discovery and a horror story for everyone else. He is the spark...the spark that shall light the fire that shall burn the Republic to ashes. He is their Bane.

    (I may or may not be listening to "Evey Reborn" from the V for Vendetta soundtrack as I write this...)

    EDIT: I was saving the Korean inspiration for some scenes in the Kenobi trilogy in my head (one of the Jedi temples Kenobi would visit would be based off of the Korean Imperial Palace - the Jedi there would wear clothes based off of the Hanbok) but it may work better here.
