    In my opinion, for this new trilogy (and other trilogies that come after) the key will be to show us stories that are far-removed and different from the 90 year span between episodes 1 and 9. That might mean having these new stories take place thousands of years in Star Wars’ future or past, and untethered from the tedious empire/rebellion conflict.
    With all that being said, which direction would work better for Mr. Johnson, the future or the past? Personally I would enjoy a trilogy of Lagacy movies from RJ because his style of filmmaking might not be best for the more grandiose tone I imagine for an old republic trilogy, but perhaps you guys have a different idea in mind! What do you think?

    I think they should go the MCU route - set everything around the ST era, so they could make crossovers and make people want to watch everything.
    Although I would love to watch some wars (in the stars) with totally new factions.

    I really don’t think the time frame for this movie really matters. The only thing it will change is the technology. If I had to say I would say Old Republic.

    Old Republic, but not TOO old...give me Jedi that can be relatable to just before the PT era...that's just me. :)

    I would like to see something in the vein of LOTR; just the epicness of it, I’m just dreaming. I have a feeling it’s going to be more art house, less cool.

    Old Republic and be inspired by the games. Although, it'd also be interesting to jump over 100 years into the future post ROS where Rey would be a legend and there would be generations of a new jedi era.

    The opening crawl could remove "Long Ago" for the first time and just be "In A Galaxy Far Far Away"

    Personally, I don't really care WHEN in the Star Wars timeline Johnson's trilogy is set; I'm certain it is going to be great in any case.

    I would regard it as weird, however, if they adapted/remade a video game story and I'd much rather they do something fresh. Also, I don't particularly want a trilogy overly focused on Jedi/Force Users as Star Wars is more than those guys and Force-iness tends to overshadow everything else if handled carelessly. Jedi inflation is a real challenge for Star Wars…

    Then again, I'm not super heroes-guy and I might therefore be biased against following the exploits of a Jedi cohort slicing their way through a plot...

    No, personally, I want a powerful and emotional tale, preferably depicting unlikely heroes struggling with insurmountable odds, and any Force-iness would best be reserved for small and personal story arcs running in tandem with a bigger picture central story. For instance, the desire for "thousands of Jedi fighting thousands of Sith" idea that seem to prevail in the fandom wouldn't interest me in the least, except possibly as a framing story/backstory for a close, personal story. A two hour LotR battle with lightsabers would be pretty boring.

    I’m more psyched for Johnson’s Star Wars than anything else in the franchise, (although that does not mean I’m not looking forward to other things we’ve been promised!), and I think that Johnson’s core idea of doing a trilogy about brand new people, plots, places, and conflicts will be fantastic! :D

    Personal wish list:
    --An alien main character protagonist
    --Gothic evilness
    --Underdogs story
    --Low-life before high-society (although both is good)
    --Fresh ideas (we don't need another super-charged Jedi or handsom über-pilot dude)
    --Droids
    --A huge/galactic scale conflict that doesn't (primarily) take a Jedi to fix
    --Personal struggles and conflicts that matter to all
    --Exploration of morality

    It would be interesting to have these movies be set during the PT or OT or ST. The characters hear or even feel the consequences of the conflicts of the certain time era, but they are not involved and have their own fights to handle.

    Neither. Considering how much RJ divided fans....Start his trilogy 100 years after TROS.
    Jedi Order and New Republic 2.0 reestablished gives RJ the freedom to go where he pleases.

    Making people happy during the PT/OT/ST era is an impossible task. By nature Star Wars fans are "divisive" because when you ask them what they believe Star Wars is about you'll get different answers.
