    Not just this but after 9 we need to be able to step back and look at 1-9 as one better overarching story that makes sense. My fear now is that not only does ST stand a little disconnected from PT and OT, but each film within ST is somewhat disconnected, even thought they are enjoyable/entertaining films in their on right.

    OKAY STAB IN THE DARK. MONEY TIME. LET'S SAVE EP IX!

    - My hope for the episode. The movie begins 5-8 years in the future, over this time the resistance (now bulked up by the help of allies) has been raging battles with the First Order across the galaxy. the First Order led by Hux and the resistance led by Leia or Poe.
    - Kylo Ren has not been seen since the events of the last movie, the presumption is he has gone to find and learn more of the darkside and his grandfather. On this journey it recaps (from kylo) the events of the temple falling, the construction of his lightsaber and the form of the Knights of Ren. Along his journey I see him seeing his grandfather both as Vader and Anakin.
    - While this happens, Rey instructed by Leia continues Lukes work finding more force sensitive teenagers and younglings to Ach-To to learn the ways of the force and rebuilding some what of a Jedi Order. Luke, Yoda and Obi Wan would play a massive part in the force presence to guide her. In this time Rey leaves from time to time to meet on the battlefield to help push a front for the resistance.
    - The Knights of Ren would return from being (somewhere), after hearing Snokes demise to find their master Kylo no where to be found. Hux would receive news of the Jedi Temple, fueled with rage he requests the KOR to wipe out the temple. The KOR armed with their Black Sabers/ red sabers, land on the planet, they expect to be met by children and a weak girl. But instead a very battle ready group of young Jedi, a massive battle between Rey, the apprentices and the KOR would commence. The result would be only a few KOR escaping with their lives, and it sparks Rey's decision for the Jedi to return to the battlefield sooner than planned.
    - In this time we would be seeing awesome space battles between FO and Resistance, X Wings, Tie fighters and the whole PEW PEW light show.
    - Kylo would return to Hux's new dreadnaught, just as the KOR return from their complete failure. He would clearly be different, aged, matured, his mind would be more focused and sharp. He would walk into a new throne room, followed by the surviving KOR, Hux and some Stormtroopers. He would stare at the seat for a while, his eyes looking to almost tear up don't, instead an angry frown appears, he sits in the seat. Looks to Hux, "It's time to finish, what I started", with a smile on his face. Hux nods, leaving for the bridge, the last surviving KOR stand to either side of Kylo creating a new Supreme Leader.
    - Rose is killed in a tragic trash compactor accident...... Okay, maybe not but seriously piss her and Finn's "Love" thing off, that was so cringe, not needed, way to forced.
    - Unfortunately Leia must pass on, so I would see her going in a very noble way, a sacrifice that may save the Jedi or help the victory. I honestly don't know the best way to do this, will be heartbreaking either way.
    - The final battle would see a mix of ground and space battle. Old school style cutting between all things awesome. The final battle would meet with the bulk of the First order and the bulk of the resistance meeting above the planet the First order or resistance occupied planet. In the space would be Poe leading X wing fighters to disable some of the many many first order destroyers. The ground could have Finn leading a battle on a First order strong hold (with some of the Jedi), to destroy all their communication and air support. While this is happening Rey and some Jedi and Resistance board Kylos/ Hux's dreadnaught and fight their way to the bridge and throne room. Here Rey and Kylo would face again, with their entourages, both would attempt to convert the other but ultimately fail. Rey with the Jedi and Kylo with the KOR would explode into a final battle, it would be a huge battle cutting between all scenes of this final push. Rey would ultimately fatally wound Kylo, he would lay on the floor dying, she would kneel beside him, holding his head, "Why Ben? You didn't need to do this". He would look her in the eyes, "This was always my destiny, to be the scared one, the damaged one .... and yours was to be the good one, the hope, I knew it and our mother knew it"..... Before she can question him further he dies there in her hands.
    - The ending could really be wrapped up with Rey return to Ach-To and continuing to train the Jedi in the New Order, Finn along with Poe continue to lead the resistance mopping up the final pieces of the First Order. Could see Rey burning Kylo's body on the high peak of Ach-To with her and the force ghosts of Luke, Leia and Anakin. (Somehow get Han in there haha)

    Personally I would like to see something like this. Happy to hear changes or disagreements :)

    Fair enough, you still may want to create a new thread about your opinion if you want more people to see it because it's a bit much to read.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 20, 2017, Original Post Date: Dec 20, 2017 ---
    Sounds good but I would say 5 years would be max. 8 years gap wouldn't give the actors time to age naturally without using make up. I think 2 to 4 years is plenty of time gap and still set things up nicely. The movie comes out in 2 years not 10 years from now.

    I would either try Episode 9's thread or maybe the ST general thread. Maybe a MOD can help out?

    I imagine either Benioff & Weiss, RJ, or another series will eventually take off where IX ends. Maybe not necessarily as a numbered title even, but as a continuation of the Jedi.

    So, I expect we'll see hints at a new generation of Jedi a la Broom Boi, but I don't think it'll be the focus of this film- continuing the Jedi tradition was already the ultimate theme of TLJ.

    If Randoms like Broom Boi aren't the focus of the film, the failure of Rainy Johnston will be complete.

    The entire point of 8 was that randoms like Rey would rise up and win out against the Evil Skywalkers.

    Don't you just love the Kennedy-verse?

    "Randoms" almost certainly will be the focus, for the most part.

    Like a week in-universe before The Last Jedi, almost no one in the galaxy would've known who Rey, Finn, or Rose are... I'm sure that we may get some new characters, too, but each of them already exemplifies the lack of a need for legacy.

    There's no need to pretend we have problems that we simply don't have.

    All three of them exemplify the need for legacy. The family elements are what tie one trilogy to the next to make it a Saga.

    Nobody gives a rats rear about the first two if they're nobodies. It completely castrates their characters because then they don't play into the overall Saga. They're just nothings that found themselves at the right place and right time for their trilogy. And people care more about Rose in Titanic, than Rose in SW. If the start of IX revealed she died off-screen, nobody would care.

    Oh look, the "nobody cares" argument.

    How original. I'll give you a cute rating, even though it's more of an abomination. I guess it's kind of like a pug- so ugly it's actually kinda cute in the end.

    I think everyone is overthinking. I think JJ will go back to basics. Love the theories though, they'll most likely be better than the movie.

    I think there will be another super weapon, possibly in construction, possibly a force weapon... at the very least they'll be assembling one and finding the parts to it. Finn and Rose will have to infiltrate a base and turn off the defenses so that Poe can attack the base and Rey can get in and face off against Kylo. We'll probably see things like an academy and Hux plotting against Kylo early on. Hux could die early, or he might die on the super weapon. If Hux dies, he'll be replaced with either Phasma or a KoR. Rey will have to defeat the KoR to get to Kylo, possibly/probalby with help from Finn, Poe and Rose, though Rey will face Kylo alone, or alternatively, Kylo will turn back good and help the heroes defeat the KoR (at least one of those will get some character development and prove to be formidable).

    The movie will end with our heroes victorious, and Kylo/Ben dead. Rey, Finn, Poe and Rose the future.

    We will get a conclusion to the Skywalker saga. Ben's ending and coda will give us that end. I suspect he will die in the sands of Tatooine. Redeemed? Maybe. Yes, maybe. But not good necessarily. If anything Rey, I suspect will be tasked with rebuilding the Jedi order herself.

    Until she fails between the ST and the SST, tries to kill someone in his sleep, runs away and hides as a homeless on a remote planet. Then it is time for broom baby to be the next hope. :cool:

    Mate, here are the keys to the car go write a Star Wars fan fic if you think he did so badly. Also, for the record, with the exception of Ben, both Skywalkers grew up as nobodies.

    I had a dream last night that Rey will have a beard like Luke in Episode IX.

    I'm not trying to be funny, I really dreamed that. :confused:
