    Well in honour of the fan who put up the bill board asking for Rey centered content. An animated series involving Rey recruiting and rebuilding The Jedi. And that can be combined with the goings on in the Galaxy, different players trying to gain power. I say animated because I don't see LF doing a live action show with Rey or Ben. I also agree with content surrounding the Old Republic. I would really like to see something more sophisticated. Not just a re-tooled version of the Old West or WWII.

    A Luke game in the same style as Fallen Order, searching for force-sensitives and searching the galaxy for artifacts & relics!

    I want a new trilogy. I think they might be working on one. I don’t know. One that takes place during the Old Republic Times. Maybe one that stars that one kid we saw at the ending of TLJ because his significance was kinda foreshadowed.

    I answered "yes" previously, and while I stand by that, I think my answer today is a little more...nuanced. (Or full of complaints, depending on your PoV.)

    What I want is something like the MCU. Not in terms of jokes or banter or whatever, or even in terms of crossover material (at this time), but in terms of aesthetic and variety. The MCU has about a dozen different heroes who all have their own genre, supporting cast, and aesthetic. The Spider-Man movies are John Hughes-esque high school adventures; Black Panther is an Afrofuturistic global adventure with a theme of family and generational sin; Captain America: Civil War is a psychological thriller; and Black Widow is looking to be more of a political thriller - all four films exist within months of each other. THAT'S what I want. I want fans to feel like they have the power over what shows to watch because the taste of each is so different. I want fans who don't like Episodes 7-9 to have some ST or Post-ST material they can latch onto that doesn't fully require them to watch the ST. I want to go on a fun road trip in one show, and then go on a more serious pilgrimage in another.

    I want my meta-action adventure movie about a girl who hears the Force in music and must use the diegetic music to solve the film's mystery, while also being able to watch a zany sitcom set on a giant exploratory vessel, while also being able to watch a THIRD thing that's a Dark Hero's Journey. That is what I want.

    And granted, Star Wars is getting better at this - The Mandalorian and Book of Boba Fett are set to occupy the same space, as well as that forever rumored Rebels Sequel That May-Or-May-Not-Be-the-Ahsoka-Show and Rangers of the Republic. But these don't really do it for me, since they're all fixing an issue that is long overdue (the Post-OT era being explored), not one that I think is more important to fix (The Post-ST era needing to be explored), and none in the way people have actually wanted (Luke's Jedi Academy). All of these shows are still set in the OT aesthetic and relative timeframe also, and are covering the same sort of "underground/bounty hunter" space.* I want something post-ST, so I can at least feel like I can move forward past it.

    And a Finn show spearheaded by Regina King, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Dave Filoni would be wonderful.


    (And I wouldn't mind a Greg Berlanti produced Rey/Luke show that functions like Arrow did when the show worked well - have Rey in the present and Luke in the past, and then have them deal with similar issues in different ways. The problem with this is that knowing Luke's academy fails whereas Rey's is all but certain to succeed may make fans feel like Luke's journey is...lesser. There are ways around this though:

    One way is to muddy details. Have Luke and Rey both try to temper the eagerness of a prospective student, but the situations of the student are different. For Luke, the student wanted the power to destroy those who his people saw as enemies; in Rey's situation, it's to fight off a surviving First/Final Order bastion. In Luke's situation, he teaches the child that those who are "other" aren't necessarily evil; in Rey's situation, truce talks go downhill fast and the student needs to learn quickly in order to escape. So two different lessons that can be combined into one ultimate one. (In my head, this would take the form of Luke and Rey discussing things at the end of the episode and the arc, and their joint discovery is what they tell the student.)

    Another way is to actually have Rey fail. At the end of the first season, have her academy fall apart due to a rogue student, not unlike what Luke had. Now Rey has to pick up the pieces and start all over, but the second time around she does things a new way.)


    Overall, I don't want fans to peace out of Star Wars because they feel like the franchise is force(heh)-feeding them a select amount of characters. I want Lucasfilm to expand the characters onscreen in post-ST content, so fans like me who no longer look forward to series rewatches can have something at the end of the tunnel to look forward to.


    *The Mandalorian has a chance at leaving that space, since BoBF may take over that particular atmosphere, but I still have my concerns.
