    I think we'll definitely be seeing more of Poe and Phasma, no idea about Snoke though. I really hope Lando is in this movie and returns upon hearing of Han's death. Another lightsaber duel with Kylo is pretty much guaranteed although we don't really know who will be against him (Rey/Luke).

    In this case, I'd like to see a OT style duel as both are older and cannot do all the flips and twirls found in the PT duels. Something more along the lines of the duel in ESB.

    - Not to use The Empire Strikes Back as a story template for another safe bet.
    - More R2-D2 and C-3PO screentime
    - For Leia to give Chewie a big hug and a Maclunkey medal for ANH (not Han's old one!)
    - For Snoke's true size to be revealed. (I still think he'll be smurf sized!)
    - Better music and played by the London Symphony Orchestra. (not that freelance LA band)
    - General Hux to be made to look older, possibly with a beard and some massive mutton chops.
    - Han Solo to remain completely and utterly dead.
    - A 'blue ghost' appearance by either Obi-Wan or Yoda. If Anakin show's up, I'm walking out...

    ;)

    Problem is we, well me anyway, don't actually know how big Snoke is! He could be the size of an Ewok or taller than a Wookie for all we know or could be in a wheelchair or something! Regardless, I hope he looks better in the flesh than that awful cgi hologram!

    1. Rey identified as Luke's daughter, with the backstory of her mother and the trip to Jakku.
    2. Finn, Poe, Chewie, BB8 still important figures in the film.
    3. Reveal of Snoke and backstory.
    4. Backstory on Maz.

    1. Luke being a bad ass.
    2. Chewbacca ripping someone's arms off.
    3. The full power of the Dark Side. Not a mechanic super weapon.

    1. Finn being a Forcie!
    2. Stormpilot! ALL THE STORMPILOT.
    3. Luke + Rey and Training. Maybe even a training montage. Don't care
    4. Force ghosts
    5. Poe flying. I can't stress enough how important that is
    6. no senseless fillers like the freighter scene in TFA
    7. Finn getting less socially awkward and growing into his skin
    8. Rey being awesome and so god Maclunkey cute.
    9. Leia snarking politicians into oblivion.

    Forgot something:

    TWI'LEKS!
    I WANT TWI'LEKS!

    Would be cool to see Finn become Jedi.
    Hard to believe he lasted as long as he did against Ren and not be at least some force-sensitive.

    Especially since he didn't have any specialised close combat training.
    His absolutely above average blaster skills can be explained away with being trained since he was a kid (not sure if that extends to ship canon, but whatever), but the lightsaber fight?
    Nah.
    Rey, yes. Rey is a melee fighter and that will always carry over to other weapons, but Finn?
    Nah... there needs to be more.

    How about Jar Jar Binks accidentally uses the next star killer to blow up the forest moon of Endor and wipes out those Maclunkey Ewoks for ever? Or, he really is Snoke and does it deliberately?

    More of an emphasis on story than action
    All of the questions TFA left unanswered
    Captain phasma being a badass
    Finn becoming a grey force user
    Luke training with Rey
    Rey with either a green dual bladed lightsaber or two green lightsabers. It would be so boring if she just had one lightsaber. She should stand out.
    Finn and Rey romance
    Poe having more screentime
    Rey getting her arm cut off by kylo
    and ORIGINAL story plz don't rip off ESB

    - Rey will lose her battle against Kylo.
    - She will become a huge target by the First Order.
    - Being the middle chapter, the First Order will show the Resistance what they're really made of.

    I rather see something like this happening than some trainin Kylo/Rey scenes. Kylo is all about revenge and will have his revamp with Rey. And I rather think this time he will win (no crossbow hit on side might help that).
    I don't think Finn will be a Jedi. Just doesn't fit in the way the way he has been portrayed.
    And FO will kick ass in this episode. This just feels obvious, especially because there's nothing left of Republic and resistance is low on resources.

    With the Resistance forces diminished, it'll be where Finn's elite training as a soldier will come in useful.

    Every major scene should be filmed with IMAX cameras.

    I just want more Finn & Poe bromance time. As long as that happens, I'm sure I'll like the movie :)

    I thought the CGI was fine. To be honest though, Snoke is most likely just normal size and purporting to be some tall and menacing figure when he's just a normal dude. I bet later we'll get a duel with Luke against him or something.

    I really want to see the First Order rampage and destroy much of the Resistance in retaliation for blowing up Starkiller Base. Kylo might win or it might be a draw if there's another duel (most likely will be another one).

    I think the "new" cast is going to hit it out of the park. Now that they are comfortable, and have received mostly positive feedback they can really shine!

    With that being said I'd love to see...

    1. The Return of Lando. It's needed. Smaller role, but I want to say hello again.
    2. Luke kick Kylo's butt. It needs to happen.
    3. Improve or no CGI Snoke. I want to really get into that character.
    4. Bossk. The guy needs a lot more time on the big screen.
    5. More Maz. I liked what I saw, and want to know her back story.

    We are set up for a great next installment! The story has been set, the director is good, and the actors now have more confidence.

    - Luke in action

    - Snoke in the flesh

    - Development of Kylo Ren and Finn

    - More Poe, Leia

    - Lando

    - Knights of Ren

    - New planet/s the doesn't resemble Yavin, Tatooine, and Hoth (They played it very safe in TFA)

    - Jar Jar Binks
