    RJ said in his SlashFilm interview a while back that he's only going to write and direct the first one, and then he's going to bring other writers and directors in for the other two. So he's basically going to play the same role the George Lucas did for the OT.

    Also, while I'm here, I'll add that I actually would prefer the protagonist stay human. However, I'd love to see a really weird, and almost abstract looking villain. If anyone's seen Annihilation, then that's kind of along the lines I'm thinking of. I'm really tired of seeing white male human villains. Even something like Darth Nihilus would be a nice change.

    Or a badass seductive manipulative sith witch. A type of Lumiya. Annihilation was good but I wonder if that would be a little too abstract for star wars?

    That would actually be pretty damnationly cool, sir! I don't remember too much from the old Marvel SW comics I read to pieces in the 80s, but I sure remember Lumiya and her weird light-whip-thingamajig :)

    Not to be a pessimist, but I’m going to curb my enthusiasm a bit. We fans on The Cantina can really dream big. Sith witches, Old Republic, etc. I would be overjoyed if RJ’s trilogy was centered on any of that, but the fact remains: Disney is not interested in the “old times” due to their lack of legal possession of KOTOR. If I were to bet money on what RJ’s trilogy actually will be about, it will probably be set in between III and IV or directly after VI, which are “hotspots” in storytelling, I’ve noticed.
    Personally, I’d watch anything Star Wars. I may be the only one on this message board who was genuinely disheartened to hear GL’s “midichlorian” trilogy would never see the light of day.

    You might be right here, Ghost of Obi Wan Kenobi. In all likelihood, RJ is going to create something spanking new for his trilogy. And that's a pretty cool thing too :)

    That I would like to see. Disney should move this saga forwards without using the OT as a crutch. Many main characters in the ST are connected to an Original Trilogy character either as a fan (Rey is a Luke fan, Kylo is a Vader fan,) a relative (Poe Dameron,) a former co-worker (Holdo,) etc.
    What Star Wars needs Rian to do is create a set of films that are not directly connected to familiar previous installments. I heard Jon Favrau’s show may be about Mandalore. This is a good first step. They really need to push it beyond that. That puzzling last scene in TLJ makes me wonder if this trilogy will be about Broom Boy & Pals learning the ways of the Force and becoming Force users separate from the Jedi Order? THAT I would like to see.

    I think RJ's trilogy will be good because he is creating new characters with no baggage attached. he is a great filmmaker. I'm worried about the GoT show runners because expectation are very high for their films so I foresee disappointment.

    I think they can pull it off. Look what they did with GOT?

    I've watched GOT, all the season at least 3x already. I love the series. What I'm saying is before TLJ was released, most thought that RJ was going to make a great movie. Go back and read some of the threads b4 TLJ was released, all the praise for RJ:rolleyes:, but allot of those people were disappointed by the film afterwards. I think the same thing will happen with the GOT show runners because people are expecting it to be so good like GOT. Thats my opinion I could be dead wrong but its funny how allot of people were so hyped for TLJ and then after seeing it hated RJ to death.
