    The Star Wars universe is a vast one with many stories about various characters, locations, etc. Outside of the films, TV shows, and video games, many of these stories are told in the form of books and comics. This thread is to come up with your own idea(s) for a book and/or comic that you'd like to see in the future. It doesn't have to be a major event, it could be about a background character or a one-off reference to another event.

    My idea of a story that could be written as a book about the earlier days of the Clone War.
    • Despite the various adventures in The Clone Wars TV series, there are still many events that we are missing: such as the Jedi's first encounter with General Grievous and Assaj Ventress, where Anakin got his scar, Obi-Wan and Anakin no longer being master and apprentice, etc.
    • This could recanonize many events from the original 2003 Clone Wars miniseries, such as Anakin's duel with Ventress on Yavin.
    • It could also show the development of Obi-Wan and Anakin's relationship, how Cody and Obi-Wan met, how Anakin and Rex met, and the Jedi's thoughts on the clones in the earlier days of the war.

    My idea of a story that can be told as a comic is one about the Siege of Mandalore.
    • It could be like Son of Dathomir, but maybe a couple of issues longer.
    • Could show Anakin and Ahsoka's last encounter, encountering Bo Katan, more of Maul, Order 66, and more.
    • Maybe even have some flashbacks to some of the other Ahsoka arcs that were shelved, such as when she found the Sith Temple on Coruscant.
    • Maybe in the last issue, have Darth Vader show up at Ahsoka and Rex's fake graves, as a cool little ending.
    Those were my ideas, so tell me yours.

    Ooh! I have another idea:

    Jango Fett ongoing comic series:
    • Show how he was once the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.
    • Show how he got his hatred of the Jedi, how he met Count Dooku, became the template for all the clone troopers, and him raising Boba.
    • Could have flashbacks, where we see his past.

    Some admittedly "out there" ideas and some others I'd personally find interesting:

    A single issue comic on Jar Jar Binks perhaps with some particular focus on his role as revealed in Aftermath: Empire's End.

    A limited series concerning the world of the Ugnaughts.

    A thematic series of "origin story" comics for all the lesser-known bounty hunters (4-LOM, Zuckuss, etc.) and how they got to be as such.

    A limited series of comics focusing on Mon Mothma, perhaps her earlier years.

    A very young Leia series of comics focusing on her life on Alderaan and/or an Alderaan-centric series of comics featuring Bail Organa, his wife Breha.

    A Knights of Ren comic series. Too interesting a set of characters to constrain permanently to the so-called "mystery box."

    A single or limited series comic on Jocasta Nu and the Jedi archives.

    A Qui-Gon Jinn series of comics featuring a younger padawan Obi-Wan and perhaps a pre-Sith-convert Count Dooku.

    A Darth Plagueis series of comics. While his self-titled novel is now "Legends" material, he is canon via the Tarkin novel and deserves development (unless his non-Sith name does somehow rhyme with spoke).

    A Snoke series of comics (perhaps after Episode VIII or IX) spanning the PT / OT / ST and perhaps beyond, if he is truly that old.

    A General Leia series of comics focusing on the pre-Force Awakens formation of the Resistance and its relationship with the New Republic.

    A Maz Kanata series of comics. She's lived a very long life and must have many tales to tell.

    An Ahsoka Tano series of comics focusing on her post-Clone Wars life / adventures / pursuit of Force knowledge outside of the Jedi order and perhaps her eventual joining with the early Rebellion (up to the Rebels timeline).

    A single comic canonizing "Skippy's" (R5-D4's) sacrifice. What? you might wonder. Take a look at this: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Skippy_the_Jedi_Droid

    Well, maybe they could drop the "Skippy" part.

    :)

    Those are some pretty good ideas! Although Skippy's sacrifice was already canonized in "From A Certain Point Of View", maybe a one-off about his history with the Rebellion? I too would like to see more of Bail Organa and Alderaan in general.

    Thanks! I have not yet seen From a Certain Point of View, but that's great news!

    Some other ideas:

    A Jedi Council series of comics focusing on its creation and/or activities before (or leading right up to) Episode I.

    A Bespin series focusing not only on Lando but the many other possible stories / subplots which might unfold in such a unique environment (possibly including some pre-Empire Strikes Back Imperial interest in the facility.

    A one-shot comic finally relaying Constable Zuvio's untold tales.

    A limited series of Han/Chewie's activities just before The Force Awakens, possibly elaborating on why/how the Falcon wound up on Jakku.

    A young Armitage Hux comic (single or series).

    A young Finn comic (single or series).

    A pre-Episode VII Luke Skywalker series of comics. Such a vast gap between there and ROTJ.

    A comic miniseries detailing Dooku and Qui Gon's relationship

    An ongoing Obi Wan and Qui Gon comic set during the year they were on the run protecting Satine. Feature a bunch of bounty hunters, one of them being Dex who Obi Wan spares and convinces to help them.

    Jango Fett ongoing comic detailing his early life (show him being adopted by a Mandolorian family which is why he wears the armor and claims to be from Concord Dawn). And also show his interactions with Aurra Sing and Hando.

    Sifo Dyas comic detailing his last days and showing his death.

    Ongoing Obi Wan/ Anakin set during the ten years, show Obi Wan falling into the nest of Gundarks.

    Recanonizing Darth Bane's whole shtick with whatever new ideas want to be added. (Preferably this would be a movie)

    The Bad Batch and Utapau Clone Wars arc (like Son of Dathomir or a book like Dark Disciple)

    A comic of how the Grand Inquisitor went from Temple Guard to sith acolyte.

    Miniseries about Luminara surviving for a brief time after Order 66 before being caught and killed.

    Young Ki Adi Mundi, detailing his exemption from the no marriage and no children rule.

    A Maul story about his very early life and training.

    An Asajj book or comic about era time as a jedi, ending with the death of her master.

    Random Clone Wars comics of non-main Jedi like Kit Fisto, Ki Adi Mundi, Plo Koon, Aayla Secure, and Quinlan

    General Grievous prior to him becoming a cyborg and the events leading to his augmentation and eventual training by Dooku.

    A comic miniseries about the battle between SCAR squadron and Twilight Company

    A novell about the rise of the First Order under command of Rae Sloane and the powermove that Snoke made to get in control

    An ongoing comic about the remainig Jedi after Order 66 and there stories. (A bit like the Dark Times comics from Dark Horse)

    An animated series about Luke and Dr Aphra setting off to find the old Jedi temples

    A Lost Stars sequel off course

    Yes please!

    Old Republic comics, books and movies!

    A book about the population of a (new) planet, with politics, wars, love, internal conflicts and so on. But with no Jedi, Empire, First Order or Rebellion. Just a gripping storie about characters wo don't know yet

    They said Battlefront 2 story will take place throughout the 30 years between RotJ and TFA so maybe we will see Sloane and the beginning of the First Order. Personally I'd love Gina Torres to voice and be the physical model for Sloane.
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 14, 2017, Original Post Date: Oct 14, 2017 ---
    The author said she'd love to do a sequel but as of now the 30 years in time is mostly off limits.

    Knowing that Leia was going to be important in IX and they did not change the story of VIII after she died, why not come up with a beautiful book or comic series featuring the last acts and dead of princes Leia. That would definitely solve many problems.

    The time between a few decades prior to TPM up until AotC is a fascinating period to me. On one hand I would love to get canon material about it, but on the other hand... I don't want it to be misrepresented or overexploited, so there's a little bit of comfort in it being uncharted. ;) I don't like when they fill certain periods with so many stories that there's virtually no space to do something there in future.

    How about short stories about Sebulba? He and his band of buddies go around racing and stealing parts and money from Spice road truckers. It could be called"Hyperspace and the Furious." Until Anakin beats him.

    He could have outlawed pod races on the streets of Mos Espa.

    I really want a "Certain Point of View" for the other 5 movies. Its a really cool way to explore those random background characters as well as some bigger ones who didn't get much to do.
    Think about the potential, Quinlan Vos story during Phantom Menace, IG-88 getting to Bespin first and his subsequent destruction, Rex on Endor, Hera or any other Rebel leader during Endor, Bossk and Dengar on the Sail Barge and how they survived, officially canonize Boba's survival, Shmi shortly before Anakin arrives, Boss Nass during Padme's funeral, Tarful and Chewie after Yoda leaves, further explore Siege of Mandalore, other Order 66 Jedi, Qui Gon watching Anakin slaughtering the Tuskan Raiders (and not just the men but the women and children too), Tarkin at the end of RotS, Dooku's perspective of "Do it", Qui Gon's first moments after his death, Maul's first moments after being halved, Dooku finding out about Qui Gon. There are so many possibilities.
