    A film about how Padmé Naberrie/Amidala became elected Queen and what happened to her predecessor, King Veruna. I know it's already a novel, but I think it'd make an interesting film and also it'd be nice to see Naboo again. But there would definately be no gungans in it because they're not on speaking terms yet.
    ;)

    I'd like to see a Vader movie. Set between 3 - 4 with Vader leading the full might of the Empire against the remaining Jedi. It would include more from the Emperor and show more of Coruscant and Vader's castle. I'd like it to explain more of the Sith history and practices. It'd be cool if they could somehow include Obi Wan......

    I love me some Lost Stars. But honestly, it's not the sort of story that lends itself to being told in a feature film. Not one with the expectations that a Star Wars film carries with it. We're talking about the very deliberate evolution of multiple characters set against a backdrop of events that themselves took place over the course of multiple movies (as well as before and after those movies). You can't really tell that kind of story in a single film and you can't tell it particularly well even in a series of films. Lost Stars would be best told in a television or streamed series. That would allow it to skew far enough to drama territory to do the story justice.

    How about a film explaining how the Death Star plans were stolen? You could base the film off the details in the ANH title crawl and...

    *whispers heard*

    Oh.... nevermind....

    Agree. Maybe even an animated TV series would work.

    A Vader film would be awesome! Also coming to terms with his new agenda and forgetting the Anakin Skywalker before him would be cool. Slicing up Jedi would be the coolest thing ever!

    A film about Revan would be awesome, it could really set up the The Old Republic lore in New Canon.

    A bounty hunter film would be so cool! With a much more gritty dark tone to it. Maybe this would work better as a live action TV show but I don't know really, what do you guys think?

    I actually came here specifically to post something like this, so, thanks for that awesome segue, @Ty Mitchell! :D

    Does anyone remember the old "Tales of" books? Legends now, yes, but they are all based on canon characters. I would love to see a Bounty Hunters movie, telling 4-5 stories at once that somehow tie together in the end. Or one about some of the patrons in the Mos Eisley Cantina, that one could be easily turned into a Western type film, which I know has been mentioned here before. (Clint Eastwood for director, please!!)

    I'm not sure if I want to see a full-length feature film about Greedo, or Dengar, or IG-88, or even Boba Fett for that matter. But a movie starring ALL of them in some fashion?? Absolutely!!!

    That would be cool. Would love to see something similar to Shadows of the Empire where we get to see more of Black Sun and the Hutts.

    I think it would be cool to see some anthology films of the undeveloped TCW episodes. Or an Empire/Sith based movie. Or a Qui-Gon Jinn movie. Yeah... I think LF has plenty to work with!

    A just-shortly-after ROTS story where a Hutt crimelord turned Separatist warlord keeps fighting even after the Clone Wars has been declared over, and must face the might the Empire's new enforcer....Darth Vader. The galaxy will soon learn the Empire is large and in charge now, and any talk or separatism of anything like it will not be tolerated.

    If there is one movie that they should make, it should be about Ahsoka. There is about 15 years of her life THAT WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. Did she take the same training as Yoda, Qui-gin and Obi-Wan took in order to have an identity after death? Did she fall in love with someone (Lux?) and got married and even had children? Does she find out about other surviving Jedi? (Let’s bring back Jax Pavan!) Maybe her life gets really bad at one point and she makes bad decisions. You get my point. She needs a movie. And I’m telling you, if it is done right, best movie of the year easily and the office box will go through the ROOF! This will be the Ultimate “Shut up and take my money” movie for years to come.

    As a spinoff, I think the movie should avoid speaking of the main characters, mainly because the actors who played them once have aged, and there should be numerous recasts for all of them, that would be in certain cases ... "difficult".

    A good spinoff to me, would be : how did the whole Galaxy lived the transition from the democratic republic to the dictatorial empire?
    How the respected Senator, then Chancellor Palpatine was seen once he turned into the Emperor? How was Vader introduced to the Galaxy? How was the Senate muzzled?
    What have been the stories the peoples were told which led, twenty years after, to the point "all the Jedi are all but extinct", after the Republic lived for 1000 years under their protection and guidance?
    How a whole Galaxy has accepted to fall from democracy to dictatorship? How was the opposition (leading further to the different Rebel cells, then to the Rebel Alliance) formed? How has the repression been imposed?

    It would be an exotic movie, i mean, it would make the audience dream, with a bunch of numerous planets and aliens to discover: please more Alderaan, more Naboo, more Dagobah, more Felucia, more Mygeeto, more Cato Neimodia! More twilek's, more gamorreans, more hutts...
    ... and consequently: no more lightsabers, no more Sith, no more Jedi, no more Skywalker, no more Kenobi as movies, comics and books are full of them... Only plenty of inhabitants, some very evolved like the human, some less like the Geonosian insectoids, and plenty of ways to live/suffer/refuse the putsch.
