Do you think they will make any movies that start before episode 1 happens?

    Do you think after episode 9 they might go back to the Old Republic or just anytime before episode 1 started to see what it was like back in the old days?

    What movie(s) do you think they might make?

    I think it's a possibility. Especially if the whole Star Wars franchise keeps earning Disney profit.

    I could see two possible routes they'd go down:

    1) Prequel Anthologies. I think there are some cool untold stories they could make films of - i.e. a Qui-Gon Film, A Darth Plagueis/Palpatine Film, etc.

    2) Old Republic Series. I think there'd be an opportunity for an Old Republic trilogy. But unless you're a relatively devoted Star Wars fan - I think most people wouldn't quite relate or catch on to this idea (such as casual film-viewers).

    I think it might depend on the success of the stand alone movies. If they prove to be a hit, Disney might feel comfortable enough to dedicate one movie to an old republic era , or possibly a far in the future era movie. I think they will at least attempt it to gauge interest in stories that are in no way tied to the PT/OT/ST timeline or events.

    I feel like Disney already did something similar with Guardians of the Galaxy, which lets be honest wasn't really on anybody's radar, and that turned out to be a huge success; now we are getting another one, possibly a third.

    I feel Disney isn't above breaking away from the Saga films, but right now they are trying to play it as safe as they can to get the return on their investment. Once they reach that point I can see them being a bit more risky with the property.

    I have to disagree. Why wouldn't Disney think there is money to be made? Isn't the next SW movie we are getting set between two different movies who's stories are already told? If Disney can see profit in making such a movie knowing it can't go crazy so it wont ruin what was already told, why wouldn't it see profit in a whole universe it can explore without any limitations? And even more so now that the whole EU is no longer canon? My thought is that Disney is going to milk SW for all it's worth and this will be with movies and trilogies being after, before and in between everything we have already seen in the big screen.

    Because a random general viewer will be really confused if it's not directly related to sky walked and Death Stars and stuff like that .

    Well, we technically knew nothing going into A New Hope, but we were fine cause the film did a good job easing us into this new universe. A pre-Saga film would have to do the same, but with the advantage of having many of the basics known to the audience in general.

    But my friend think about it, do you want anything more confusing than Rogue One? How many people are going to the movies expecting to see Rey, Finn, Poe and the rest of the gang? How confusing is it going to be for many people to see Vader alive and well yet they will see not a single Jedi? For me, RO is the biggest risk that Disney could take as this is going to be the very first non-Jedi non-Skywalker related movie of all the saga. This is a movie about a mission that happened between the movies and it will be about a bunch of unkown people who nobody has heard from before. If Disney pulls this off then imagine the posibilites of future movies and the profit that these will have. We have to understand that with Disney's plan to make a new SW movie each year, many aspects of the SW universe will have to be explored and many of these will be non-Skywalker or Jedi related. RO is the first step into this larger galaxy but I think that if this is done well and the script is good, even a SW movie where the main character is a Droid can be excelent.

    Yeah biggest risk - SO FAR. - we still technically get a Skywalker since nearly everyone and their mother knows Vader used to be Anakin Skywalker, and this movie has clearly been labeled as a prequel so hopefully that shouldn't confuse anyone but maybe the little ones...I would think the biggest risk would be not having any Jedi but if we have a LIGHTSABER then that would complete the "Jedi" quota and while what you're saying is totally true & warranted, but unless people STILL believe that R1 will have Finn and all which would mean they'd think this is VIII then I think that's ridiculous.

    Judging by the way we prequel fans have been treated thu far, I'd say the chances are slim to impossible we'll ever get a PT era movie. We'll probably get tons of books, games, and comics...

    I think there is a good possibility Disney would make films that take place before TPM, but considering how much they've tried to avoid the PT as of yet, it would be a very calculated and thought out decision.
    I wouldn't be surprised if the went for something during the time of KOTOR and TOR, and recanonized/rewrote those stories. I personally hope after the ST in finished, they would make a trilogy about Revan.
