SPECULATION Could Episode IX potentially become IX and X?

    No need to be short or defensive. I have made the point several times this was all hypothetical. No, I have not read the script for IX.

    I do think a lot of the questions JJ posed in TFA were answered in TLJ.

    • Why did Luke go to the island? Answered.
    • Who are Rey's parents? Answered.
    • What is Snoke's purpose? Answered.
    • Will Rey turn to the dark? Answered.
    • Will Ren be redeemed? Answered.

    I'm not saying they concretely concluded everything beyond reproach, but like a said, a lot of those loose ends were tied up.

    I don't see them adding another movie to the ST.

    A lot, as @BaserCreatures just said, has already been answered.

    Snoke will probably barely get a mention (if that) in IX. The KoR can be explained where they were in a line or two (add spin off movie or cartoon or simply just a book or book series later on). The main answers that are needed are the resolution of Kylo/Rey first and foremost. Then add the FO and Republic/resistance, but then again, that doesn't have to be completely final either. So far the ST has been far more about individuals than the war or politics. So unless they feel that needs to be addressed now (it should have been in TLJ at the latest, but I digress), and I highly doubt they do, this trilogy will be focused more on the people and the war sits more in the background.

    So add Leia, which can be dealt in the crawl or likely very early on, as a topic to be resolved, then add something to do for Finn, Poe, BB8 and Rose. I don't think there's enough material to make another movie necessary. I see a scene with Kylo and the KoR early on, then Poe and the resistance (possibly a funeral for Leia). Then there will be a Rey/ghost Luke moment. Poe and probably BB8 mission, possibly with Finn, or Finn will be off with Rose. Meanwhile Rey will be with R2 and possibly Chewie and 3P0 trying to thwart Kylo's plan. Poe and Finn and friends will run into the KoR, while Rey will meet with Kylo one last time. Throw in possibly a superweapon and that will pretty much sum up IX.

    I think splitting it into two films risks being viewed as another sellout franchise. With Star Wars under the command of Disney now, I think many already do feel this way, but honestly, in a lot of cases, film franchises do this to double their profit. After the fan backlash The Last Jedi got, though, I think it’s safer (and probably more likely) that they’ll just conclude everything in Episode IX.

    I wouldn’t be upset if we got two parts to the film because I love the Sequel Trilogy, but I do feel like this is a trilogy and it needs to end with the events of this film. I don’t see why there would be a need to split it in half because there really isn’t that much to tie up in terms of loose ends.

    I used to like the idea of splitting it into two, but I would rather have a longer Star Wars movie than splitting it into two, as it would affect the pacing. :)

    If they have a compelling story that merits doing this then I'm excited for it. If they do like the Hunger Games/Harry Potter and split one long movie into two then I'm very against it.

    I agree with the Hunger Games, but I am one of the those weird people who loved Deathly Hallows Part 1 and was really glad they dedicated the time to it.

    That is sort of my reasoning in thinking it could need to be split. It isn't that there is too much to really wrap up. It is the fact that I think this movie has so little to wrap up that it is almost going to feel like a standalone plot or story rather than a real continuation.

    JJ might have an awesome idea how to really close the trilogy out in a stellar way that may prove me wrong in a huge way, and I would be fine with that.

    Don't get me wrong I still love Deathly Hallows P1 it just felt stretched to me.

    Not to start writing fan fiction but could you imagine a situation story wise that would be compelling enough to make Episode X immediately after IX?

    An idea that's been in my head lately is Rey training new jedi and Kylo having an apprentice and then how a possible Kylo redemption could affect Kylo's apprentice whose been trained in the darkside. I don't think all of this could be done effectively in one film. Maybe it's a bad idea overall but just one I think personally would be interesting.

    I like that! I have this weird sort of idea of taking the idea of balancing the Force in another direction. I sort of see it as there being a rift in aspects of the force. Essentially at it's core the living force and the force ghost world have fallen out of balance. There is a rift. It is what enabled Yoda to be so active in the the living world in TLJ.

    The film begins after a time jump. Rey is called back to a barren Ahchto to reveal Luke has come back. But he doesn't know how or why. We sort of start to begin a slow build to reveal the balance that has been prophesied for so long is less about good and evil being the light and the dark, but life and death. Anakin's redemption should have closed the door, sealed the force worlds as separate. But the existence of Luke and Leia and his bloodline has prevented it from closing. Luke comes back with a dire warning that a war like no other is coming if they can't close the metaphorical door.

    Rey's immense powers are no accident. She is the key to it all. Sort of a little bit Blade and little bit Hercules. She can tow the line of both worlds. She is OLD, really old. Trained by the jedi long ago, and when the worlds began to split she, much like Luke found herself back on the side of the living, but as a child.

    VERY MUCH just a fan-fiction idea I had, but that is the sort of story that could tie all three series together and close out the Skywalker Saga in a satisfactory way. But, would need a two film set-up to accomplish.

    I never thought I'd like an idea of Luke returning to the physical world but a Gandalf like return would be interesting.

    I think he would have to have someone to fight against that only he could defeat. The only thing I can think of is the Emperor. That starts to get a little messy. I'm sure everyone can see why I'm not a writer at this point lol.

    They better not extend this segment of the saga longer. It's time this era starts giving some answers and stops just kicking the can down the road to provide answers later. Also, once those answers are in place, we can start getting some proper side-stories to flesh out the fiction. Right now, since they don't know where they are going, no one can write/produce side-stories of any consequence. =\

    Strange that want the entire Sequel Trilogy spanning a timeframe of a few days or weeks.

    Prequel Trilogy spanned from 32 BBY to 19 BBY = 13 years.
    Original Trilogy spanned from 0 BBY to 4 ABY = 4 years.
    Sequel Trilogy (Episodes VII-VIII) spanned 34 ABY to 34 ABY = 0 years, x weeks, x days.

    This just confirms that the current crop of new fans are very impatient and very literal with their perception of time.
