SPECULATION IX should wrap up Kylo's story and begin a new saga for Rey, Finn and Poe.

    I've been thinking about how IX could have a satisfying ending to the saga. My answer keeps coming back to, it can't. I think this film needs to end the Ben Solo story, probably with his death. However, in no way should the war end right after we saw it supposedly begin at the end of TLJ.

    This film can simultaneously close out the Skywalker saga (wish they didn't go this route to be honest) and setup the beginning of the Rey/Finn/Poe trilogy where they fight the First Order and whatever else comes their way.

    There's a huge opportunity to introduce new villains. It would open the door for other factions like cartels and conglomerates to make a play for their piece of the galaxy. It could show Rey's struggles in starting the Jedi Order. The possibilities are endless.

    What do you think? Do you want to see IX wrap up everything or see more from Rey and company?

    Interesting idea! Personally if they're going to continue the story after Episode IX with these characters, I'd rather have it in a TV show and focus on Finn. Granted, this could get risky considering how...kid oriented Rebels and Resistance are.*

    Poe I'm iffy on due to him already having a very nice comic run and some nice cameos in Resistance. And I personally want to see Oscar Isaac act in more non-Star Wars things! But he's great so I can't complain.

    Rey...I'm gonna be controversial and say no. The Sequel Trilogy is Rey and Kylo's story. Not Finn and Rey like I feel they pitched to us. Definitely NOT the OT character's story, despite the legacy they leave behind. Rey and Ren. And I'd rather her be about, wandering the galaxy and helping where she can than set up a school/academy like Luke did, or like the PT had the Jedi. Make her a wandering monk!


    All that being said, if they randomly happen to make Finn a Jedi in EpIX, then that changes everything! ...but not really likely...



    *I still really enjoy these shows, but they ARE for kids and I'd rather not have Finn reduced to that.

    Meaning no offense, but this could simply be a failure of imagination on your part. I can imagine a number of ways to end the trilogy in a satisfying manner. But, would you find them satisfying? I suppose that depends on your criteria for satisfaction. Did you think the ending of the OT was satisfying? If so, what criteria did it meet to cause satisfaction? It's basically, Vader turns at the final hour because, I guess he loves his kid; blow up something and, poof, the end.

    Okay the war had begun prior to the start of TFA, right? That's why there was a Resistance. So I'm not sure what you mean here by, supposedly begin at the end of TLJ? What happened at the end of TLJ was the rebirth of hope (via the rebirth of Luke Skywalker) for the Resistance to defeat the FO which at the time of TLJ "reigns supreme" as noted in the first sentence of the opening crawl.

    Yeah but this is also true of Star Wars (or, any franchise) in general.

    Wrap it up. Three threes seems a proper aesthetic; a trilogy of trilogies contained in a narrative center with prequel-sequel bookends.

    No, this will only wrap up the "Old Skywalker's" story, which means Luke and company. There is little doubt that Ben/Kylo will go on with the rest of them, but there will have to be a major (either) reveal or development that will close the arc....has to, but I have no idea how.

    Remember, the saga IS the story of the Skywalker family, and that story will go on...without (as before) Luke and company, not to say that there won't potentially be direct or indirect references to them in the future, but now it will be about the newest characters that we have.

    I personally think that JJ's "End of the Skywalker story" statement was only meant figuratively...and done so purposely.

    i agree, and i'm also clueless as to how they achieve it.

    my gut tells me that JJ is hiding a brand new bad guy/girl in his list of cast additions, and will somehow introduce him/her/them during ep9. a certain blue fella springs to mind actually.

    we will definitely see the end of a story.. but the saga continues in my opinion.

    Episode 9 will certainly be the last in the saga for a good while but I'm 99% certain we'll be seeing Episode 10 - 12 at some point, so they'll leave it somewhat open ended even if the story doesn't demand it. There's simply too much money to be made. Despite how it'll be marketed I don't think anyone really believes this film will be the last chapter.

    I think this could be a strong possibility. Kylo whether redeemed or not has a strong possibility of dying in IX. I also think there is a good possibility that somewhere down the line they could very easily continue the story of the new characters. I think that it will be a number of years away. Daisy, John and Oscar are going to want to do other things than just SW and waiting a number of years will allow this. Besides we know that the next series of movies will be from Benioff and Weiss and the new RJ trilogy is still out there so episodes X-XII won’t be for a while

    I know there are many that are not ready for the Skywalker saga to end but I truly believe it to be the case. They are looking to do new stories. I think Lucasfilm wants to grow beyond just the Skywalkers. In order to fully do that is to cease with Skywalker stories. They are moving off the idea that the term saga and Skywalker are synonymous. They wouldn’t have started calling this the Skywalker saga if that was the case. The new series and trilogies of movies will be called ??? sagas. I-IX is the Skywalker saga.

    I wonder if RJ or Benioff and Weiss could be tapped for 10-12. I don't see why one of these guys couldn't pickup the story (sans Skywalkers and legacy cast) but continuing the war and the rise of the new Jedi.

    RJ already has said that his trilogy was going to be a completely new story. I don’t believe anything has been reported about the Benioff and Weiss series and what sort of stories are going to be told. It does appear that the Benioff and Weiss movies are the next ones in line. I suspect we will get more info at Celebration

    As someone else said, this is subjective, the idea of satisfying. Personally, and this is just my opinion, I think Kylo should go full on dark side and Rey should die fighting him. She sacrifices herself. So we don't see her anymore, but X-XII (which they will make, we all know they will) perhaps would be the Kylo redemption story, if they want to go that route. Or maybe it'll be how the New Jedi Order destroys Kylo?

    As for the other characters, I'm not sure I care all that much about Finn or Poe. I'm far more interested in Kylo. Rey? Same as the other good guys... not so much. Just my opinion. But as I once said years ago, they could serve up garbage, put a Star Wars tag on it and I'll probably be there. That statement still stands.

    Yeah, I think they will eventually do an episode X, XI and XII. I'd like to see an older, more evil Kylo. If they don't kill of Rey in IX then they could have an older, wiser Rey.

    Either way, they are insane if they are truly going to end the "skywalker" saga. If Solo taught them ANYTHING they should have learned people want stories about the Empire and they want stories about the Skywalker family. If you aren't gonna have either of them, then you should go Jedi/Sith. Otherwise I think the fans aren't going to show.
