    I would like to see a movie about the Bounty Hunters and I wouldn't mind if they used some from the CW era like Aurra Sing or Cad Bane.

    That's on the cards, actually. Has been since 2015 or possibly even 2014. They just pushed it back due to a director switch-up.

    I'm not sure about Aurra Sing showing up in that movie, but from the looks of things, Boba Fett killed Cad Bane during the Clone Wars, so he most likely won't be in there unless they switched his story around from the unproduced episodes of TCW.

    Boba Fett killed Cad Bane? Was that in a book or something? Is that canon?

    Sort of... This info comes from a story reel from an unfinished Season 7 of TCW shown durind SW Celebration in 2017. Since Season 7 of The Clone Wars has never been made, the events in that story reel aren't officially canon. However, you can safely assume that they did happen in universe unless some other material proves otherwise (and that won't probably happen as long as Filoni stays in Lucasfilm, so... it won't happen.) Here is the story reel:

    Although he didn't die he was still shot in the head which is quite bad regardless of type of damage. Probably a concussion or something along these lines knocked him out.

    But I really don't think we can assume that is canon because then we would have to say the Yuuzhan Vong are canon as well. I take these things the same as I take deleted scenes from the movies which can't be taken as canon and many even contradict themselves.

    ok, i have a few ideas to throw out there. feel free to throw them straight down the trash compactor... i won't be upset.. promise.

    1. Rey's Story
    won't ever happen, but the first 40 minutes of TFA go into my top 5 list. I could happily watch 2.5 hrs of young Rey trying to survive on Jakku. Not sure how you'd sell it to the normal movie watching world.. but it's something i'd drool over.

    2. Jedi/Sith Trials
    This would be set during the old republic time, based on either a youngling trying to advance through the ranks of a Jedi academy.. or a young sith wannabe trying to survive a sith academy. easy one for Disney to sell, as they could easily 'teen' it up with romances etc. Perhaps even do both.. with a Bastilla type jedi coming through the Jedi ranks the same time as a Revan esque character pushing his way through the Sith academy.
    perhaps this could be how an Old republic trilogy could start?

    3. Ahsoka. nuff said, but i don't think that is out of the box lol

    4. The Great Hunt.
    follow many groups of bounty hunters and others on a hunt to find a Krayt Dragon. fighting each other along the way.. perhaps having to band together to tackle something they never had a hope of facing alone. could def throw in a few familiar faces here, or go completely fresh.

    5. Survivel !
    now this one's completely original.. nobody has ever come up with this before:-
    So, the FO does a lottery on each world to see who will represent their planet in a deadly arena where they have to kill each other until there is only one standing. I even have an idea for the lead character... she would be an expert with a bow caster. Jennifer Lawrence would probably work.

    Hmm. How about this idea?

    Imagine taking the old story of A New Hope which present day kids wouldn't have seen because "it's an old movie with bad graphics" that only their parents and grandparents have seen.

    Get a director well known for reboots and remakes and make it look like this new film was co-written with one of the original OT era writers to avoid worrying the original older fans.

    Alter the story with some updates, change the Luke character into an orphan girl. A girl, because its a different and "out of the box" idea and pleases the feminist SJW shareholders. And make the orphan girl appear invincible like she's got Force abilities like Luke had in ANH too.

    Then change Obi-Wan into Luke, who's been in exile someplace, like on a deserted island somewhere. Then call this "new" film "Reawakening Of The Force" or something....

    *hears whispers*

    Oh...
    ;)
