    As for me, what I want out of SW movies in general:
    - Spaceships firing lasers and blowing up
    - Good guys taking down lots of faceless enemy soldiers (It's Star Wars after all)
    - Final confrontation between the hero and the villain, preferably with meaningful dialogue about viewpoint and some lightsabers
    What I want out of Ep.IX in particular:
    - Rey, Finn and Poe interacting
    - Final duel between Rey and Kylo Ren. I'll accept any outcome, as long as it's meaningful and presented well
    - Poe becoming a great Resistance leader, while still kicking ass and chewing bubblegum in an X-Wing (and running out of gum just before the final battle).
    - Finn completing his character arc in a way, that would make me like him more overall
    - Make Rose a more likable character. For now she is fine for me, but I believe they can do more with KMT
    - Emotionally fulfilling ending, that would tease the future of the main heroes and outline the political situation in the Galaxy post FO war.
    - I somehow don't really care about seeing Luke, Snoke or Lando again. Please don't burn me for heresy.

    It could be weird depends how it’s done, would definitely give us a story we haven't seem before and move the story forwards in new ways if they can pull it off. But it is risky.

    They did, and some defiantly where upset with the mundanity of the answers to theories and questions posed and the subversion of those expectations that had been built up. both on and off screen. But that’s the whole issue we have been talking about for 8 months if you like the subversions you probably enjoyed the last Jedi if you didn’t like them you probably didn’t.

    Personally I think theorising can be fun If like you say, don’t get hung up on needing your theory to pan out.

    I'd like to see Ben Solo wielding Anakin/Luke's blue saber at the end. Something like, Hux takes control of the FO after Kylo does something that undermines the cause. Then Hux unleashes something that is going to devastate the Resistance, and spin out of control to devastate the galaxy. Maybe Rey shouts something like "Ben I need you!" and that's the turning point. Kylo throws down the red saber as Luke appears and holds out the blue saber. Luke says "This belongs to you, Ben." Ben hesitates, then Han appears with Leia and says "Take it, kid." Leia says, "You've earned it." Anakin appears and says "Fulfill your destiny and finish what I started." Luke tosses the saber, and it flies through the air in slow-mo. Into Ben's hand. Cue the music:



    And I'm sitting in the audience with a tear in my eye, and I whisper, "We just went next level."

    Okay more of an exaggeration than a serious suggestion, but you get the idea.

    I would like to see the following in episode 9, but not required:
    1. Poe, Rey, Finn have a mission together. I would like a solid scene with all 3 of our protagonists together.
    2. ROMANCE. I don't care if it is Finn and Rose, Finn and Poe, Finn and Rey, Rey and Poe or Rey and Kylo. I feel like the sequel trilogy is missing the romance, which I love in my Space Fantasy.
    3. Force Ghost Anakin and Force Ghost Luke.
    4. Acknowledgment of General Leia's Funeral or that of her presence instilled through the leadership of Poe, Rey, and Finn.
    5. A thematic tie that will bind all the trilogies.
    6. Lando used as a helpful asset to the new Rebellion.
    7. Knights of Ren - Rey having to fight those fools.
    8. Epic Space battles and epic lightsaber battles.
    9. More R2D2 saving the day, give this veteran droid more scenes.
    10. Return of Poe's Black Squadron - Jess Pava, Snaps Wexley. etc.
    11. Chewbacca - "Kick names, Take Ass"
    12. Rebels defeat the First Order and the last shot of all our heroes celebrating (like at the end of Return of the Jedi and Phantom Menace). Ben Solo and Rey looking at all the Force Ghosts from the previous trilogies - Yoda, Luke, Obi-wan, Qui-Gon Jinn, Anakin, and Leia, smiling back.

    Whatever JJ and crew have planned to end the Skywalker saga, I just want it to be compelling and great.

    We will definitely see them together. But I doubt they will have a mission together. It will be Poe and Finn on a mission, while Rey is dealing with Kylo.

    #BringHaydenBack

    Or: don't kill Leia at all.

    + don't kill him off.

    Rey AND Kylo vs the KOR.

    That's way too much fan service for my taste.

    But I agree with the remaining stuff.

    After the great experience with TLJ I prefer to be surprised. I just want cool twists and scenes that we can not predict.

    As for Force Ghosts all I demand is Luke. Any others have to make sense and have something very important to share with the characters. Forcing (no pun intended) other ghosts for the sake of it would bother me. Well except maybe if they wanted to repeat the ending of ROTJ. Then I demand that Leia Force ghost is done with CGI.

    I want to see Kylo Ren die unredeemed, consumed by his own hatred and anger.

    I want to see Luke emerge from the pool below the cliffs on Ach-to. He will have 2 real hands, no beard and a twinkle in his eye. Is he a ghost? Is he alive? He can touch things but then so could Yoda at TLJ. We will argue for decades whether Luke was back in the flesh or just a force ghost or something in between. He will be hopeful and playful and driven to save what's left of his friends and the rebellion. He will only remember seeing Leia after he disappeared and she asked him to come back to save the galaxy.

    I want him dead, as well. I don't care whether he is redeemed or not. I just want him dead. That's how much I care about his character.

    Me too. I adore Han and Leia, but I cannot bring myself to care one bit about their psychotic, murderous bad seed. I'm hoping he gets a lightsaber through the chest, just like he did to his own father. If that means that the Skywalker blood line dies, then so be it. As sad as that will be for SW.

    i need to see the lore massively expanded (Whills), Snoke returning & revealed as Darth Plagueis w/backstory, Luke returning, Rey & Kylo eventually teaming up with Luke to take down Plagueis.

    if no Snoke/Plagueis then a new villain to up the stakes, Kylo as the 'villain' just won't cut it.

    I want to see Finn awake from his coma to find that TLJ was a dream.

    Just Kidding.

    There are some basic things that most fans (including TLJ haters) would probably like to see:
    -The Knights of freaking Ren. I've been waiting since the trailer for TFA.
    -More Poe, Rey, and Finn interactions.
    - Exciting light saber battles
    - A big epic space battle similar to the one in ROTJ
    - More Luke. Even if he's a ghost. Everybody wants more Luke.
    - Lando. Let him fly the Falcon again.

    Personally I would like to see these things:
    -Leave the Rey parentage thing alone. Rey herself said she's a nobody. Let it go.
    -Some discussion about the chosen one prophecy to tie the trilogies together.
    - Rey gets her butt kicked by Kylo and she needs Finn and Poe to actually rescue her.
    - Kylo gets a new mask. Let him be scary again.
    - Kylo remains alive at the end and has to live with the remorse of all he's done. Like Prince Humperdink. But with an open-ended hint of redemption.
    - Dozens of Force Ghosts surrounding the heroes at the end. Maybe even use old footage of Leia for a ghost.
    - Don't recast Leia. I understand both sides of the debate but I would rather see her death respectfully mentioned in the opening crawl.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 19, 2018, Original Post Date: Jul 19, 2018 ---
    Snoke and Luke are dead. But if Yoda can burn a tree with lightning. Maybe Force Ghosts can fight each other. That could be epic.

    @Adam812, I agree with everything, except for:

    He doesn't need a new mask to be scary. Kylo ditching the mask was a very important development for his character.
