?

Would you like to see more prequel elements added to the sequels?

  1. Yes, avoiding them too much will become a distraction.

    I didn't say have none of it. I said lean too hard. The PT basically runs through whole acts of political talks. That's different that a few dialogue parts. That's not leaning, that's good writing.

    I don't mind references to the PT as long as it is relevant to the story. Not just thrown in the there for the sake of it. I really don't think they are intentionally avoiding anything. The PT era is 60 years in the past, before the dark times, before the Empire. I think with TFA, they were just looking for new, to move the saga forward. Seems TLJ is also going new as far was we know for sure. I agree with others, if anything I think we will see Coruscant or maybe Mustafar.

    So, allegedly, a reddit user is claiming (great source I know...) that JJ told him that ep9 will tie all 3 trilogies together.

    IF SO, that would mean the ST will have to acknowledge at least certain events in the PT sooner or later.

    I hear ya and agree. Prequels= too much politics TFA= No Politics

    Anyway, my complaint is much more about the planets. :)

    I actually think uniting the prequels makes a lot of sense and has to be done. It is the skywalker saga, therefore, you have to acknowledge what happened in Episode 1. The ending of episode IX has to fit the entire set.

    This is why Snoke being Plagueis makes sense, as does Rey being Luke’s kid.

    By doing this, it becomes about Vader and the legacy he left for his children and grandchildren.

    If Abrams does this successfully, I’ll be a happy fanboy

    Interesting thought on tying this in with Snoke being Plagueis; if he did help create Anakin, we have even more of a cohesive storyline.

    Couldn't agree more on Rey being a Skywalker. If this is about tying things up and bringing a close to the Skywalker saga, it absolutely makes the most sense to have her be Luke's daughter.

    The more I think and talk about it, the more likely it seems that IX will be the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. Whether or not we get X - XII continuing the story but not focusing on the Skywalkers is another question entirely (imo, if you want something new like that, why not just start a new trilogy altogether? This is a multimedia fictional universe: if Rey is a Skywalker, her turning up in the films doesn't mean it has to be a part of the Skywalker saga if it's somebody else at the forefront).

    I'm genuinely excited at the thought that IX will be the end of the saga: likely the last SW film with new music composed and written by John Williams; a trilogy of trilogies, etc.

    But now I think about it...it could be drawing near to a three hour runtime if that is the case - which my mind is absolutely for, but I'm sure my bladder is not.

    No matter if Rey is a Skywalker or not, I fail to see how IX will be the last episode.

    The working title is 'The Last Last Jedi'

    epX will be 'We're serious this time...' and so on.

    Why is this highly likely? Did I miss a news post?

    I don't think we know anything about Snoke's plans or what he cares about.

    I super agree. How many recent movies set in the present refer to 1957?

    Frank Oz reportedly recorded new lines for Yoda in TFA, Ewan had a voice cameo in TFA and is eager to return to the franchise, and Hayden Christensen was supposed to be in TFA as an Anakin/Vader ghost. (Not to mention his appearance would make sense from a storytelling perspective.) I'd say these facts make their future involvement more likely, but I don't know anything, just speculating. ;)

    I wouldn't mind if they referenced them if it made sense and was organic, but I don't want callbacks just for "Hey, remember this?" moments.

    Looking for new? Like another Tatooine and another Death Star? Another Cantina scene? None of this would bother me much besides the fact that everything is similar from the first trilogy, but just different names and not even as well thought out. Just my opinion though.

    Agreed. Just seems like they could have mended more of the PT in with the ST to make it feel like the same universe. TFA really feels almost generic to me with all new planets, but look the same as OT planets.. Just not as cool. haha That's my humble opinion thought.
