    yes, this is my point. He wanted the Résistance to know, so why did Hux have to die? He helped to make this go viral : p

    What if Lucas had successfully bought the rights to Flash Gordon?

    What if Robert Englund decided not to tell Hamill about the casting call for SW?

    What if American Graffiti bombed?

    Join me in some intriguing “What ifs?” - either making of SW movie-related or in the movies....

    What if Prequels had received the same writing and editing input as the Original Trilogy?

    I've wondered about this ever since reading Marvels "The Star Wars," which adapts one of Lucas' early New Hope drafts. It's so crazy because the story feels just like the Prequels--oddly fast pacing, stilted dialogue, too much sitting and talking about politics.

    But of course, The Star Wars had a lot of help. Other writers punched it up, other people helped edit.

    So what if the Prequels had received the same help?

    What if they used the original creepy baby head design for Darth Maul, would he still have been as well received?

    I realize I'm somehow like a year late in answering this, but I think finding Luke would be a task that consumes Kylo Ren, as impossible as the task may be.

    However, having seen TROS now, I think this can be a bit updated:

    - Fueled in his obsession to find and eliminate the last Jedi Luke Skyawlker, Kylo Ren becomes consumed by the dark side and eventually destroys his master, Superme Leader Snoke.

    - As the new Supreme Leader, Ren searches for ancient Sith knowledge. No matter the timeline, all roads lead to Exegol.

    - There, Palpatine helps Ren learn of Luke's true location... but he also reveals that there is a younger Palpatine on a desert planet on the outer rim.



    I'm not sure I'm able to really say what happens after that. I think it'd make sense for Rey (and possibly Finn, having befriended her years ago) to somehow be wrapped back up into the story given the connection there, but I'm having a tough time coming up with a realistic happy ending. I'd assume Luke is probably the spanner in the works for Kylo, so maybe this would just be the end of the dark middle chapter with him sacrificing himself and having Rey continue on her journey (much like in TLJ) but that's going down a huge rabbit hole now.

    I know that Marvel is doing this kind of series for Disney Plus in the future. Now, I’m not sure if it would work for star wars, but I started thinking of a few what if scenarios yesterday.

    Here they are:
    What if the Blue Shadow Virus leaked into the Galaxy?
    What if Chancellor Palpatine was defeated by Master Windu?
    What if the Rebellion failed to destroy Death Star 1?
    What if Ahsoka stayed in the Jedi Order?
    What if the Republic listened to Fives?
    What if Anakin lost the Pod Race? Haha this one is just funny in my opinion!
    What if Padmé never died in child birth?


    To answer my own poll, however, I’d put maybe because when thinking about anything, there is a possibility. I would answer no, but I just had so many ideas so it seemed cool to put a maybe down. Haha xD
