    A Thrawn type character centralizing power in the Empire post-ROTJ would make for an interesting spin-off. It would be it's own separate story and could illuminate what the empire was like, but it would be illuminating to the central story, since it would help establish the setting for the sequel trilogy. In my mind this really should be the goal of the spin-offs: to tell there own stories, but stories that give us greater insight into the saga itself.

    Another note: one of Lucas' original plans for the saga was 12 episodes. It had a prelude, a clone wars trilogy, an interlude, the original trilogy (so for those counting that would make ANH ep VI) then another interlude and finally a conclusion trilogy. So these spin-offs could serve as the prelude/interludes. For example: if Plagueis is the villian in VII, then maybe our prelude could be about plagueis. And the thrawn-esqe spin off would be the interlude between the OT and the ST. And then a spin-off could be set between the PT and the OT (like a Kenobi or Fett spin off).

    I have a couple ideas. I admit they may seem more like fan-fic then potential movie plots, but here goes:

    I would like to see a Vader/Ahsoka spin-off which could also include an appearance by the Inquisitor. This would have to probably be the 3rd spinoff, after the tv show Rebels has ended (only because it might be dependent on what happens in Rebels, and admittedly my idea might not work if Ahsoka turns out to be Fulcrum). Audiences who hadn’t seen TCW or Rebels could easily be brought up to speed via an opening crawl. The Inquisitor is searching outer-rim planets after getting wind of rumors of a Jedi (or ex-Jedi) in the area. He has finds Ahsoka but is clearly no match for her. He does manage to follow her into a jungle/forest/wilderness and contacts Vader, telling him he better get out here cuz this Jedi is pretty legit. When Vader arrives, he and Ahsoka immediately realize who the other is and could be a great moment in the film. As the film goes on Ahsoka tries the “There is still good in you” stuff but doesn’t work. Vader eventually kills her in the darkest ending in the history of Star Wars films.

    Another I’d like to see is a Jedi-Sith war movie set roughly 1000 years before TPM. It could be about the ending of the Sith Empire that forces the Sith to hide in the shadows for the next thousand years. It could have some really cool massive battles between Jedi and Sith armies. My only real thoughts are on how the movie would end. The Jedi hero wins what appears to be the final victory against the Sith on board a massive starship above some unexplored and unnamed planet. He believes he has killed the last of the Sith just as the ship is about to self destruct. Of course one Sith does escape at the last moment. The Jedi gets off the ship just in time in an escape pod. The Jedi crash lands onto the planet and the film ends with him finding….baby Yoda! (Hence the “roughly 1000 years before TPM").

    I want to hear everybody's spinoff ideas! I will share mine first.

    I would make a film based around the Jedi Lightsaber construction droid Huyand (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Huyang), being hunted down by Darth Vader and a pack of Inquisitors. Throughout thefilm I would slowly reveal that he is not a droid, but in fact a "Shard" a Crystalline lifeform that uses a droid body.

    I would use it as a study of Darth Vaders and Huyang, with Darth Vader having to come to terms with his own mechanical attributes and the mysteriousness of the force. And Huyang the isolation and removal of purpose and meaning in a persons life.

    I would end the film with Huyang being torn apart by Vader, but the crystal remaining. And then show the years pass, and crystal being found by a droid... this if for you EU lovers... the droid that finds Huyang,would be 4-LOM.

    ----

    My second would be an "all things mandalorian" film, it would be an adaptation of the Mandalorian story from the original marvel comics. It would feature the Mythosaur bone city, ruled over by the overseer (who would be combined with Jaing).

    Basilisk War Droids, Lagortoz War Dragons, Mandalorian beasts and weapons of alltime. I would try to create a definitive Mandalorian experience, a war between an outcast clan and one that has sworn loyalty to the empire. I would go as far as to include at least one Mandalorian Battle Legionare as a member of the outcast camp.

    I am a bit obsessed with details :|

    I would love to have Ewan McGregor back as Obiwan.He was the number 1 reason I liked the PT.
    I wouldn't mind seeing what Yoda and he did during the "Dark Times" and also the Force Ghost training from Qui-Gon would be awesome to see. Anyone else?

    I would like to see a spin-off called "Star Wars Cantina" it would have former deck officer Bren Derlin spending his post-OT days in a cantina as a regular bar patron who constatly annoys the other regulars with his pointless trivial facts and endless talk about the importance of deck officers. Things heat up when Bren gets a spot on an intergalactic trivia game show. Bren starts with a commanding lead but on the final question about Count Dooku, Anakin Skywalker, and Shiev Palpatine. Bren answers: "who are 3 people who have never been in my speeder?". The host refuses that answer and Bren loses. The film also would star Lando as the cantina owner/bartender, Esther Derlin as Bren's live-in mother, and his best friend Norm Porkins.

    I heard the second Anthology movie was going to revolve around Jar Jar's fate

    Here's my problem with Han Solo... I do not want to see anyone besides Harrison Ford portraying that character. I would prefer they use the upcoming video game to tell Han's story and use the second anthology for something else.
    I would really like to see a canon story on how Yoda become so powerful. It would take place in a very unexplained time period which I find interesting. I'd also love an Obi Wan spinoff. Another thought I've had is a spin off about Master Cipher Dias(sp?) the Jedi master who ordered the clones. Did Palpatine pose as Master Dias and order the clones as part of a master plan or did Cipher Dias fall to the dark side? I would be interested in this

    I'll bite. I want to see a Kurosawa's Seven Samurai remake with bounty hunters (namely IG88) getting roped into doing the right thing, despite their own agendas. Humorous but slow on action until the big climactic battle.
