    I saw we have a newly added thread for this new trilogy from Rian Johnson. Since we know nothing about the direction he will take. We can at least talk about the things we desire to see from this very exciting blank slate. The question that comes to me the most is what the new heroic face of this trilogy might look like. Hopefully we can rule out space orphan on a desert planet so other than that the possibilities are boundless. Will it be a Jedi in some form, smuggler, a cyborg space pirate:confused:? What do you want to see?

    Please do not use this thread to bash Last Jedi. There is a place for that elsewhere! All about the future here!

    Some people will say broom kid, but I think that would ruin the power of him as a symbol in TLJ. It would turn a poetic moment into a plug.

    I'm with the OP on the idea of a royal lead. My change would be to make it a prince or a king, since I miss the royal theme but we've had the female royalty thing quite a bit already.

    The trials of a would-be king would be fresh but still fit into Star Wars.

    My ideal hero is a teen princess strong in the force who for whatever reason (I am not being paid to write :)) Is being hunted. She comes under the protection of a wandering Jedi Ranger<(Space Aragorn) No idea what happens or why but the idea is exciting to me. The Ranger would be the hero of the first movie and after a time jump Princess/Ranger co lead the rest of the movies. I want these two to be the focus. Not a large cast.

    What I picture for my characters.

    T
    he Ranger: Hiroyuki Sanada is what I picture in my head.

    New Hero: Age and look similar to Vaylin in this cinematic.

    Planet: Love this design from TFA artbook this will be the new hero's homeworld. Love the idea of fishing type village in Star Wars.

    Already posted above but the double post was spazzing me out.

    As mentioned in another trhead maybe the new hero or the main antagonist will be an alien. That's something new for the saga.
    Also the main character could be an android or a robot.

    I would like to see an alien / humanoid in a leading or co-leading role. Twi'lek, Chiss, Zabrak. Something not too outlandish (don't think a Gamorrean would work for instance, haha), but just not fully human.

    edit: Aw drats, you barely beat me out, @Messi! :D

    I would like that as well. My favorite Mass Effect characters were always the aliens. [​IMG]
    Would be awesome to have a well designed intelligent alien that was not their for comedic relief.

    Protagonist begins as ANTAGONIST, then sees the light (no pun intended) and switches sides to be the hero, like say...

    ...with a different lightsaber, of course! :)

    Shouldn't that be damm Caedus.

    & I was so tempted to give your first post a Porg rating :p.

    As for my idea I think they will go for a mid twenties hero/heroine & from the lower levels of a Coruscant type world.

    Though the idea of a young member of a imperial family on the run though a GFFA also has a lot going for it.

    I’d like to see a droid centric narrative. Their role in this universe is so damn bizarre. It really should be addressed at some point. I don’t know if that’s enough for a trilogy, but I’d really like that to be a focus sooner or later.

    I'd like to avoid some of the typical Star Wars tropes with the new hero:

    Force Sensitive
    Smuggler
    Naturally talented fighter/pilot
    Slicer

    Give me the Star Wars equivalent of a fry cook in space, and let us see them grow and expand their abilities (read: again, not in the Force).

    I'm no fan of the Human League, but a droid for the lead? Hmmmmm. Don't know about that one but I can appreciate your open mindedness.

    Yea like Darth Bane - when we're introduced to him he's a miner on a crap planet with a drunk for a father who beats the crap out of him.

    I don't care what the race or sex is as long as the actor kicks a## and is well rounded.

    A Mandalorian with a dark saber would be friggin awesome.

    I have no concrete expectations, but there is a "worst case scenario" where I would be happy if they avoided (or is it avoid - I need some language help here :D) it: the white human jedi. I wouldn't have something against a very new kind of SW hero... maybe an alien, maybe something different than a jedi or "scoundrel" (like Han or in some way also Jyn) or rebell soldier... the more different to the previous heroes the better...
