    TFA and TLJ has steered the Skywalker saga into an incohesive mess. There were too many questions raised in TFA and TLJ did a blast job of only answering a couple of them. There is no "story" that can tie all three trilogies together. And I'm not saying this to be a troll. Sure, revisiting sites or planets would be neat if done correctly.

    Please don't redeem Kylo....the redemption card has already been played with Vader/anakin arc. Doing it again will be lazy. The only path forward for Kylo should be epic dark side blast. Otherwise it will contradict Luke's brief lapse to strike down Ben.

    I think Kylo becomes so powerful and destructive that no one can stop him. Episode 9 ends with with a big battle between Rey and her new Jedi students vs Kylo and the KOR. It ultimately comes down to Rey and Kylo as the only 2 left standing. Kylo gets the upper hand is about to kill Rey, but FG Anakin steps in to freeze Kylo and allow Rey to kill him. Thus ending the Skywalker lineage at the hands of the first Skywalker. Essentially purifying the force. The last shot of the movie is Darth Plagues's first on-screen appearance. He says nothing, only staring into a crystal ball type item.

    Man I suck a storytelling. All ranting aside I hope JJ and co. have something up thier sleeve. I really look forward to EP9 and hope it's the best Star wars movie to date.

    Have you ever seen the episode of Futurama where Fry goes back in time and has sex with his own grandmother? Imagine if Kylo/Ben goes back in time and knocks up Padme with twins while Anakin is out fighting in the Outer Rim! Now THAT would tie the trilogies together!!!! :p

    Not Padme, but Shmi! Supposedly Anakin has no father. Step in Kylo Ren... Oh boy, I would hate that soooo much!

    Here's what I'd like to see -- Anakin Skywalker turns out to be an experiment by Darth Plagueis. This means the Skywalker Saga is the story about darkside characters trying to overcome their predispositions for power and control. Rey, in fact, would turn out to be the real Chosen One, and this would explain her powers and help make the character make sense in this world. The Force has made her special for a reason, and it would be fun to know -- this is called traditional storytelling -- why.

    Mustafar. Midway or towards the end of the movie you could have Kylo head to Vader's castle for him to see if he can sort out his constant conflict between light and dark. Then a Ghost Anakin can then appear to him and show him through a series of flashbacks the way Anakin went from this nice young kid to the moment where Obiwan has defeated him and left him for dead and thus becoming Vader as the final result. This could could show Kylo where he is heading and with that it could complete his redemption and head off to save Rey or something.

    In the flashbacks you could have Padme , Anakin nd even some more Vader doing whatever.

    I would rather have a "force ghost" of Darth Vader than Anakin. Or they should use that one concept art from TFA featuring Anakin who goes back between himself and Vader.

    This would be very fitting because I think Vader's castle will appear destroyed and very scary. It's haunted by a version of Anakin/Vader (but not the real one! He will appear later in a key scene of Kylo's redemption).

    For what it's worth, in one of the Vader comic runs, it does talk about bringing Padme back to life.

    I hate the Reylo crap but I'd like to see them have a brief fling. Kylo Ren ends up fighting her on Mustafar and Rey gets the upper ground but he tries it anyway and ends badly burned and having to be placed into a suit very much like his grandfathers. Similar enough to sell a lot of toys but also different enough to sell a lot of toys. The film ends with the rise of Darth Ren and then Rey finding out she's pregnant. Wait 7 years and give us Ep X wherein they introduce Jake Skywalker, son of Darth Ren but he doesn't know he's the son of Darth Ren as he's being raised by his uncle Lando. He will have a twin sister.
