    Funny answer: An arthouse film examining the starcrossed romance between a Tusken Raider and her small Jawa lover. Dubbed in French, but with original "Utinni!" subtitles.

    More serious answer: A horror film, kinda like Deathtroopers meets Alien. Put some Stormtroopers on a derelict Star Destroyer and let them be picked off by some unspeakable horror. Bonus points if the horror ends up being revealed to be Vader in the end, working to hide some secret from Palpatine.

    I doubt that we'd get Stand by Shmi, but if the LFL folks end up wanting to retcon Snoke into pre-existing canon, we might get a novel covering that territory. Maybe an explanation for Shmi's 'immaculate conception'?

    The Force ordered a booty call. She forgot that the Force doesn't use protection. The end.

    That being said, I wouldn't mind if they did explore this - I just don't think it needs a huge degree of narrative embellishment.

    I so desperately want something that will re-canonize elements of Shadows of the Empire.

    I think a bridge covering much of what happened between ESB and ROTJ (complete with plenty of Bounty Hunter encounters) would be great, and I totally agree that only "elements" should be brought over.

    There are definitely some weirdly dated elements of Shadows that I'd definitely want to be rid of, though- the circus scene, most of Guri's characterization, the weird attempt at seducing Leia... there's definitely a lot of good in Shadows, but some of it comes across like a weird 90's rom com.

    I don't either, but as far as I'm concerned everything's up for grabs as far as Snoke goes. Maybe I've just heard too many theories at this point that I wouldn't be surprised by almost anything. At this point, even my reaction to the once dreaded Snoke = Plagueis theory is "F*&k it, okay, why the hell not?"

    Funnily enough, that's how much of Star Wars lore came to be

    An erotic thriller about an Republic senator, his Twi'lek lover, and the female Rodian masseuse they both love, and how their doomed romances brought about the Empire.
