    Star Wars, especially after ANH, always facilitated massive components of horror in them. I want them to go off the ledge and go full on horror

    I'd totally be down for something like this. I've been contemplating writing a story with Wampas and such.

    After watching "Trials of the Darksaber", I think they should do a standalone movie of the Jedi-Mandalorian War:
    1. The Mandos must have been a worthy adversary. Their strength would be the numbers and high-tech gadgets (like those bracelets to compensate Jedi powers).
    2. The Mandos may be the puppets of a higher power: Darth Plagueis The Wise, in another attempt to get revenge for the apparent extermination of the Sith.
    3. The movie can feature young Yoda. Depending on how long before TPM, we could see a cameo of Dooku as a youngling/padawan.
    4. Palpatine as an apprentice, learning lessons from his master. Experimenting with the midiclorians. Failed attempts to create the chosen one.
    5. Eventually, we know this would be a failed attempt to get revenge, but a lesson. Perhaps the mandalorians were too unpredictable and lacked discipline. For this reason, in the Future, Palpatine uses clones from a mandalorian in the next revenge attempt.

    Well, some admittedly odd possibilities I'll toss out there...
    • a PBS/National Geographic-style documentary on the creatures of Star Wars
    • Meet the Whills
    • a Cheers-style Cantina comedy
    • a Step-Up-styled movie about competing Twi'lek dance troupes
    • a Twi'lek ballet
    • When Zukuss Met 4-Lom
    • a Mon Calamari opera
    • a Max Rebo origin film
    • a Three Stooges-styled comedy with R2-D2, C-3PO, and BB-8
    • a Lobot / X-men crossover film

    How about a stand-alone film about the origin of the prophecy of the chosen one?

    I would like to see a movie about a simple Alderaan Nerf Herder and his family, made sort-of like a western saga. And at the end the Death Star blows them all up.

    A time travel film where you get to see lots of different Star Wars eras and perhaps have someone change history. Maybe they can give Greedo a heads up so he shoots first.

    Odd idea: Pawn Star Wars, featuring Watto and Unkar Plutt.

    Another interesting idea might be a film from Maz Kanata's perspective, with the timeline spanning over a few centuries, and also featuring the stories behind some of the artifacts she's collected.

    I'd like to see more history - a Yoda movie featuring a young man Qui-Gon and a young boy Obi-Wan. Or an age of lighsabers movie with protosabers n all.

    Outside box idea would be C-3PO movie where we get to see from his eyes like in the PM scene. This can be comedy gold!
