    Seems obvious to me what happens now. The shot focusing on Ben putting his hand on Rey's stomach, could likely mean she's pregnant with a Skywalker. I mean it isn't a stretch at all, what with all the force projection stuff.

    It would be perfect for me if she went to Coruscant, rebuilt the Jedi Temple and filled the library with busts of all the notable Jedi. Really that's how I wanted to Episode 7 to start, with Luke in Rey's place.. so maybe the next trilogy (inevitable) will be more in-line with what fans wanted for this one.

    The Skywalker saga is over. All Skywalkers by birth are gone. The story of the Skywalkers vs the evil that was Palpatine is done. Lucasfilm’s best bet is to do something completely new. Something during a different time period with all new characters. By calling I-IX the Skywalker saga they have allowed themselves to create different sagas. As far as the ST characters they can bring them back in 10-15 years for another saga of their own.

    I don't think they'll do it, they definitely won't do it in the near future, but having Rey adopt the Skywalker name doesn't close the door completely on the Skywalker saga.

    I think they'll start to explore other timelines, whether that means far into the future or into the past who knows, but if I had to make a guess it would be the latter.

    What I hope they don't do, and I'm becoming increasingly worried that it might happen given the talk of Feige getting to create a movie and possibly more, is MCU-ify the GFFA. I don't want that. I don't want a series of standalone movies for certain characters that eventually leads up to a big Avengers style movie. I can see them doing that in either a new timeline or, especially, with these ST characters down the line.

    Go somewhere and tell an original story. No more nostalgia. Try to make new fans and quit trying to appease stubborn old ones. They can use TV to keep that crowd happy.

    If they're gonna make films that appeal in China they need to get a big actor and a big idea.

    I wouldn't mind going way back to the origins of the Jedi. I'm up for anything.

    I do think that's the case. The bloodline of Anakin ended with Ben and this saga was all about Anakin. Rey being the spiritual successor to the Skywalker family and name, I would think any new saga would begin with a new episode 1 covering a new era. That they had Ben become one with the force seems to me to indicate the Skywalker saga is closed with TROS. I would personally like to keep Rey's story at an "open" ending along with the rest of the Skywalkers, and not have her in any future movies as a main character - but I wouldn't mind cameos or such. I just think her story ended perfectly at the close of episode 9 and there's no reason to go further.

    The Skywalker saga films are finished. There is a reason they started calling it the Skywalker saga. It gives them the ability to create new sagas if they choose

    The Eternal Empire is another area they could explore; there is so much free reign there. They could also do something brand new (different galaxy, same time era and have completely unconstrained story writing space). I think they should make something that appeals to the old fans AND the new fans. Any approach that suggests that you focus on just one is a recipe for disaster.

    Yeah, I’m thinking that’s a possibility. Go see it again.

    Personally I think it was a mistake to "end" the Skywalkers. They could have explored new original ideas through Luke and Leia's children just as easily as through new original characters and kept those that grew up the OT much more invested.

    I don't know. But taking a break from the movies is a great thing right now.

    I have a feeling there will be a little Skywalker (Solo) involved if there is a X, XI, and XII.

    Since this is a spoiler thread, I feel like it is safe to discuss the closest thing we will get to a Disney sex scene in TROS. As Ben is restoring Rey to life, he places his hand over where her womb could, in theory, be and transfers his life force to her through that physical contact. She awakes with new life in her and then they seal the moment with a final kiss passing his love and life to her. To follow that potential narrative logic, symbolically, it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to say that that transfer of life produced new life while giving her a new life so as a Skywalker, she is now the mother of the next Skywalker and of the future of the Jedi Order.

    Not passing judgment on whether that could happen but that's certainly a way to continue the saga if they choose to do so with what they set up in the film.

    The problem is China is a huge film market and they don't have history with the saga so it's dead on arrival there. Also, making a whole saga just a bloodline soap opera is severely limiting from the storytelling perspective.

    I don't think so, we have nine movies about the Skywalkers already, most of them with Luke and Leia.
    The only Skywalker now is Rey and I'm glad that they end like this.

    This, this is what I have always said would be an interesting story. How the first jedi order split and the sith were formed would be an awesome narrative for a tv/film series.

    They could also tie it in with the kotor storyline to help separate it from the ot. I would love to see KOTOR on the big screen but the biggest problem is that it's really just a slightly adjusted version of the PT and OT. It would be too familiar.

    Maybe blending the characters and style from KOTOR with the origins of Jedi and Sith would tell a really interesting story. Ie Revan and Malak formed the first sith/dark jedi when they betrayed the council during the mandalorian war. It would almost give the sith a pov you could sympathise with. It's an interesting dichotomy that was touched upon in a few of the saga films but never really poked at from both sides in any massive detail (except maybe TLJ).

    IMHO this would be interesting and it would add some significant history and lore to the new canon.

    Any era that they set the next film(s) in can work. It's just a matter of story and execution of that story.

    If we are simply discussing stories within the canon universe, I share the opinion of many of the previous commenters that we need to explore a different time period of the GFFA for a while. Part of what is so exciting about the Saga (episode films) is that they were so spaced out and we had to wait for them, not knowing if there would be another trilogy.

    As far as stories go, I think Disney/Lucasfilm should prioritize Disney+ content for a while. Mando Season 2, Clone Wars, Obi-wan, and Cassian are all a good representation of the character-driven long-form storytelling we will be seeing in the new Lucasfilm blueprint for a while.

    I think the Obi-wan show should include the Legends character A'Sharad Hett and be able to spin off into a sequel series about his fall to becoming Darth Krayt sometime after the current trilogy.

    I'd like to see a political thriller like a Game of Thrones set in the era when the galaxy was split between Republic, Sith Empire, Mandolorian, and other factions vying for control.

    I'd like to see an Indiana Jones-like story of these Jedi-inspired and Sith-inspired relic hunters and acolytes competing for the history and the relics of the galaxy. I'd like to see Lor San Tekka, Luke, and the Sith relic hunter from TROS. Separately, I think a Doctor Aphra (comics) show could be entertaining. I'd be interested in even seeing Mike Mignola (Hellboy and BPRD) come in as a story/art co-showrunner on a show that explores the mythology, living lore, and relic hunting of the GFFA.

    I'd like to see a show about Thrawn in the post-Endor period.

    I think we could do a Black Sails like show from an era of instability where piracy, colonialization, mercantilism, and competing Core worlds made the shipping lanes as dangerous and volatile as the Caribbean in the golden age of piracy.

    I would still like to see the Curoscant Underworld show.

    And now that we have revealed Palpatine to the galaxy one last time, I want to see a Plagueis and Palpatine story based on James Luceno's book.

    The list could go on and on but I'll save you all the trouble of having to read my full GFFA story wishlist.

    Yeah. I think we need about 5 years. Maybe do another stand alone between Jedi and Force in that window. How Kylo and Knights of Ren came to be.

    Mando trilogy!

    I really liked the Solo movie, despite the flaws. I think they should reconsider it but in the format as the Mandalorian, with a much smaller budget and small episodes.

    I know it wouldn't happen, but I'd like to see some EU stuff as a show or movie. I don't see why not. There are 3 different Spiderman versions. Why not allow for alternate timelines or stories since most other fandoms seem to do it.

    To each their own of course but in my opinion the Skywalkers ARE Star Wars. That's not to say that there can't be interesting stories that don't involve them but to me, the stakes within the universe are much greater if they are around.
