    One of the things I've loved about some of the nu-cannon books (as well as in TFA and Rogue One) is the presentation of groups that worship the force (the church of the force, the acolytes of the beyond, etc...). However, the fact that they have been put forward and then not really developed has been my biggest disappointment.

    I loved the fact that Master and Apprentice explored the more religious aspects of the Jedi with Qui Gonna and Count Dooku reading prophecies. I would love to see more of this stuff.

    How about you all? What would you all like to see?

    The only thing that really interests me; beyond the conclusion of the Skywalker SAGA, is the full truth about Darth Plagueis the Wise. Tell me THAT story & my Star Wars journey will be complete.

    Yes! I'd really love to learn more about the civilization on Jeddha that built the Jedi Temple and that huge toppled statue of a Jedi.

    Both of those are fantastic ideas.

    @Lord of the Rens Did you read the Darth Plageius book from the EU? I thought that was fantastic.

    @Logray Ewok Medicine Man Right? I love seeing that statue and it makes me want to know more about Jeddah, the Holy City, the temple (and any other temples that might have been there, etc...)

    From start to finish the same day it was delivered to the bookstore.

    So spectacular, I even listened to the Audiobook. Which somehow went and made the story even better.... like being on par with the movies kind of better. Here are three samples to give a listen to and decide for yourself. I think Daniel Davis' portrayal of Plagueis AND Palpatine were simply amazing. https://audiobookslab.com/darth-plagueis-audiobook/


    Darth Plagueis is my 2nd favorite Sith Lord of all time.


    That wouldn't be possible with without BOTH versions of the story.

    You know, I'm surprised they've not published anything him yet. At the very least take the book by James Luceno and simply make it cannon. Then go and publish new material about his early life, etc.

    I’d love to see a canonized Plagueis book by James Luceno also.

    I think a story about a Jedi simply losing his faith could be interesting. For whatever reason, he or she no longer believes in the ideals and beliefs of the Jedi and leaves their religion. They could go to live a normal life or maybe even go to join one of those other Force groups. I think this concept could be very interesting.
