    There are a lot of ideas and opinions for future Star Wars stand alone movies. What would be your most unique and outside the box idea?
    Whether your answer is serious or humorous, let's hear it!!

    How about a "cops" style movie. A couple of Stormtroopers are filmed while they have to deal with domestic disturbances, and robberies on the mean streets of Curosant...

    Or a private investigator in charge of figuring out the disappearance of local Nerf Herders...

    Or a documentary about a jawa hooked on spice and his struggles to get clean...

    Use your imagination!!

    A movie about the politics of the Star Wars Galaxy... But the politics themselves are actually engaging this time. Think House Of Cards.

    The Lost Planet of Youth. Legends tell of a world is so strong in the Force that just stepping foot on its surface will prolong your life indefinitely. It is said that it lies at the center of a nebula that causes hyperdrives to explode. But what if someone found a way through?

    A group of youngings learn of a dead body out in the woods and set off on a journey to find it. Along the way they find out more about themselves and have deep conversations of introspective discoveries...

    A troubled padawan gives up training as a Jedi and grows up on the hard streets of Coruscant. He or she uses his or her combination of former Jedi training/mean streets upbringing to become the most dangerous and feared assasin in the galaxy.

    Is that a reference to this?

    I already posted my "idea" about the Dejarik championship movie - I can't think any farther outside the box than that. :)

    "Top Gun: Rebel alliance version"
    Just that. A movie about rebel pilots and X-wings and all that stuff. I would pay for it.

    I want a seedy film with bounty hunters and Imperial occupation, and a group of rebels and jedi to the rescue of said occupation.

    "outside the box" star wars movie?
    How about a star wars spinoff set outside of ANH time period, like Old Republic era?

    I would be all for that. I bet we will see a live tv series about that before a movie though. NETFLIX would be a good choice. A 10 episode series on the old republic would be great!

    As proven by TCW, there's a lot of possibilities with SW films. You can do a horror a la Alien, a monster flick, political drama, western, etc. It's just a matter of creativity of filmmakers.

    I will go down to the bitter end pitching a Star Wars horror/thriller about a rebellion squad and imperial squad on Hoth forced to work together as Wampas being to attack and pick them off one by one.

    I'd love to see a horror movie set in the Star Wars galaxy. I don't really have a rough idea on the story but there are enough creatures that you could certainly make a scary movie.
