    I want to see the following projects realised into anthology films:

    - Stark Hyperspace War film, with Yoda, young Dooku, young Qui-Gon, and many others

    - Darth Maul origin story, showing his path to darkness

    - Quinlan Vos and Aayla Secura movie, taking inspiration from the Republic comics

    - Jango Fett film, taking inspiration from the bounty hunter video game, with characters such as Zam Wesell

    - A trilogy about the origins of the the Force, kind of like a biblical epic

    - Sith trilogy, with characters such as Naga Sadow and Ludo Kressh

    I think (Idk if this has already been mentioned) General Grevious would be an amazing story to make a movie of. From his planet being at war, to turning to hate the Jedi, and getting hit by the bomb and getting the machine body he was now would make an amazing movie.

    I'd like a true to form, Disney-style 2D Animated movie. Post RotJ, Big Three. Or maybe a retelling of Shadows of the Empire.
    Disney Feature 2D animation is the best style for something like this. (I'm sick of the mediocre 3D CG of Rebels. It lacks life IMO)
    True Disney feature animation would be amazing for Star Wars. Also, no need to recast the Big Three. Just get sound alikes or whatever original actors you can get your hands on.
    This is the first though I had when Disney first bought Star Wars...and still not a whisper of a classically animated Star Wars movie. Shame! Star Wars and Disney animation are perfect for each other!

    Yes to the old Republic, The Mandalorian War, Jedi Civil War, The Sacking of Coruscant, The 100 years of darkness...

    Some of these wars dont have to be the backdrop necessarily but maybe referenced via flashback or force visions...but in a way explain why these wars happened and had they made great impacts on the galaxy as a whole in relation to what is about to come and or what is currently happening throughout. Depends on the significance though and how some of the characters feel as they reflect on past, current and future events.

    I agree, personally I would love a story set during the 19 years showing that Mace survived but was badly injured and during his weakened state was captured and sold into slavery where he has been fighting as a gladiator. Make it like Spartacus with Mace leading a slave revolt. A poster and gladiator design I made.

    Oh nay nay, not "Mace a Slave" rather "Mace the Revolutionary"
    Think of all the badass gladiator supporting characters they could have of all the various species like a Besalisk, Wookie or Zabraks,

    Oh heck, there's that!

    I actually was thinking of him surviving the fall, recovering his Saber and going underground as he knew what was coming with Palpatine coming to power, only to recruit a small guerilla army and perform hit-and-run strikes on Imperial positions all over Corsicant...post Order 66. :)

    That would be badass also but I probably would keep it away from Coruscant just so you don't have the events happening too close to where Vader and Palpatine (and the Inquistors) would be stationed. I like the gladiator idea because A. it is something new and B. It allows for the events of the movie to happen without directly having an effect on the greater Star Wars universe. If you did want to connect out a bit you can have Mace's revolt fail and he is forced to fight in the arena until he dies and after fighting for hours and hours an Inquistor shows up he and Mace duel. Mace kills him but then collapses (like Maximus in Gladiator).

    -Ahsoka (Like what did she do during those 15 years of her life? We need more details!)

    -Boba Fett (Like how he survived the Sarlacc and what did he do afterwards.)

    -Darth Plaguis (Sometime before TPM. Proves that he is Palpatineā€™s master.)

    I'd really like some pre-TPM, a stand alone movie about the first sith or something in that area.

    Great idea! It would be nice if they did an ongoing series of animated films for streaming/home video release--kind of how this has been done for the DC comics. Since such films will be much cheaper to make than the live actions films, they can afford to be a lot more bold in the stories they tell, and the characters on whom they choose to focus.

    i would love this! go wild with it.

    +100 from me too, @Cole on the old-style animation. just think about how stunning it could be if they built it old-style with the painted plate backgrounds.
    i don't care that it's insanely laborious; this is an art form we can't afford to lose!
