    See THIS is potentially even more exciting than the reveal that R1 would be made, because it's not going to be part of the saga which will immediately release the weight of "expectations" (yeah, I know) of those that have some idea about how it should be made...it'll be new.

    Now it's been said that this new trilogy will be set "during a different timeline", which could be left to personal interpretation, and/or may yet to be defined, either way...

    As I was never a "really deep" fan of the EU, I'm not really concerned about any specific era's of the EU, but I want Jedi and Sith, as i think a large amount of SW fans want a callback to this time...give this to me.

    I'll be selfish...I want to be introduced to Mara Jade.

    @Trevor Totally agree! Mara Jade would be awesome.....but from all I have read/heard I think RJ is going WAYYYYY off the grid for his trilogy. No ties to ANY other SW material, canon or EU.

    To me this is kind of exciting, like "leveling the playing field" , or, back to May 1977, when no one knew ANYTHING about the movie they were about to see!!!

    A few things I think would be cool:

    A trilogy about the founding of the Jedi, including the creation of the first lightsaber. At the beginning, force sensitives could all use vibroblades or something more crude and it would have a sort of LotR or Game of Thrones angle to it. In the first or second movie the first saber would be forged and over the course of the trilogy the Jedi as we know it would be formed. Perhaps in the beginning, each planet had a force temple and the force users were all split into different factions, like houses or samurai. Then they are united into the Jedi order by a hero from Jedha.

    A trilogy set in the Clone Wars, starring another set of Jedi (possibly an alien hero) in another part of space. The trilogy could tell another side of the fall of the Jedi, but with new set of characters and a different perspective. Sort of like a second chance for the best things from the PT era to have new life.

    A hero from a city, not a wasteland.

    Droid armies.

    Massive lightsaber on lightsaber battles.

    Mark Hamill as a mo-cap supporting alien character.

    Completely new starship designs, and lots of space battles.

    An alien protagonist would have to be almost completely human to make her/him relateable to audiences. A little bit of prosthetic makeup should be more than enough. I doubt this can't be executed in a satisfying way. I mean Avatar worked perfectly fine 9 years ago, so I'm sure a movie in 2020 can do a satisfying job portraying an alien character no matter if they use CGI or prosthetic makeup or a blend of both (my fav)

    There is a pretty big landscape between the prequels and Rogue One. I’d imagine a Darth Vader trilogy would be pretty bad ass.

    That’s after Rogue One and it’s not about a Darth Vader. The Prequel is about Anakin, the originals are about Luke. We still didn’t see Vader fully embody Vader, only how he became, not how he became the most feared person in the Galaxy. Everyone thought he was dead at the end of the prequel.

    I'm pulling for a totally new set of contemporaneous characters off in the unknown regions with their own brands of force wielders, heros, villains, and politics that we can fall in love with then set up a conflict with our existing heros that will really challenge the audience of which side to choose down the line.

    I think Benihoff and Weiss are a better fit for KOR era.

    I guess since it is a new trilogy and there is no fan expectation to subvert we should be safe for the first episode in his saga. It is the second episode of the saga that i am worried about lol

    Part of me is feels kinda lame for thinking it but I really would love massive Jedi/Sith/Force stuff. Stuff around the KOTOR/TOR era.

    I say lame because it's nothing new. If I like that content, why don't I just go and play the games/watch the cinematics? Let's use the movies to explore new ideas/themes/locations/etc.

    So to kind of make it less lame, I'd love to see a cool mystery/detective/noir like Star Wars movie. Probably will not come from this trilogy, but hopefully in the future!

    I read somewhere (and I hope that this is not true) that Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm are tearing down or ending the Skywalker family saga/family line in order to make room for Johnson's new trilogy. Please tell me that it's not true. Because if it is, I will not watch it. Period.

    "Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. That's the only way to become what you're meant to be." - Kylo Ren aka Rian Johnson.

    The Skywalker saga will probably end with IX with or without Rian's trilogy.

    "Pass on what you have learned. Strength, mastery, mhm, weakness, folly, failure also. Yes! Failure most of all. The greatest teacher failure is... Luke. We are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters." - Yoda a.k.a. Rian Johnson.

    I know Yoda's speech to Luke isn't as "hot" or concise as Kylo's, but it is an encapsulation of the philosophy of TLJ. People who kill the past will be lost. People who embrace it and learn from it will be the ones who succeed. Remember, at the end of the day Kylo lost and that loss will be the undoing of the whole First Order. With each father figure (Han, Snoke and Luke) he kills or tries to kill he gets lost more and more.

    People who claim that Episode VIII undoes the legacy of Skywalkers or Jedi are wrong. Sure, at the beginning both Luke and Kylo want to destroy it but Luke changes his mind and in the, he is the one who wins. Unless of course the only thing you care about are Anakin's genes, but if that's the case, then I have a few questions to ask - did the death of the Tudors undo what they did to England and other states under their influence? Does the murder of the Romanovs negate their legacy to Russia and countries that used to be under Russian control? We love our dynasties, that's undeniable. I, like many others, am interested in the lives of Windsors. But would their demise suddenly make UK less appealing to me? No. The same holds for Skywalkers. I sure like then as characters, but pretending like the life of Anakin is the only pivotal moment in the history of the galaxy is limiting, at least in my opinion. Besides, the fate of Skywalkers has nothing to do with RJ's trilogy.

    There's a good article in the LA Times about Rian Johnson and they talk a little about future Star Wars films.

    So was watching a video
    about the similarities between Star Wars and The Dark Crystal and in the video a couple of shots from Marvel Star Wars 2015 Comic #009 are shown. Since this is considered canon I think with Luke dialogue and the image of the Prime Jedi in The Last Jedi makes me think that the RJ trilogy will go back very far in Jedi history.

    The images in the comic start at about the 420 mark in the video. Luke finds a holocron that brings forth images of past Jedi. In the conversation the Jedi say that "Once we were brothers in the Force, but from the hundred-year darkness were born the Sith".

    I think this is where the trilogy will be set. It is a time when the Jedi are in balance. They use both light and dark powers in moderation. Then a split occurs. Jedi take sides. Some believing that using dark powers should be forbidden and some believing that dark powers lead to true balance and power in the galaxy. They each try to take control of the Force and push out the other. Thus beginning the the Jedi vs Sith conflict. This wouldnt be depiction of the massive Jedi vs Sith wars that lead to the Sith rule of 2, but rather the beginning and the inner conflicts.

    The heart of Star Wars is the force. Essentially these are fantasy films. It's that magic that holds these stories together. The thing is we don't need another story of someone discovering this power. We've seen it now with Luke and Rey. A high adventure film with a clear concept of good and evil is what audiences is want. It's a daunting task to come up with something entirely new.
