    So for the first time in 7 years we don't know what time period or place of the next Star Wars. There's plenty of rumors about who and what, but we've got some time to speculate.

    What will be the subject of the new Star Wars film?

    I've given a few options, if you chose "other" what do you have in mind?

    I think they will spend some time making more Disney+ series. Eventually they may make an Old Republic movie (or Disney+ series) but I think the best idea is an entirely new set of characters set in the same universe but completely removed from the current story. I believe that is what Rian Johnson had in mind. I hope they give him a chance to make it. Looking at Knives Out, he is entirely capable of making a movie that pleases critics and audiences alike.

    I'm ready to give anything a chance though. They've already started on season 2 of The Mandalorian, and we have another season of The Clone Wars on the way, Resistance finale, an Obi Wan series, and possibly a Cassian Andor series. Can't wait to see what comes after that.

    I’d like them to do something totally new. Far future or far past or far away from the existing films etc. But I'm happy to just be getting new content of any kind and have been very pleased with Disney’s work so far.

    I have some major issues with TLJ but he is clearly a capable director. I've always thought he would do better with something completely* new and while in-universe, mostly removed from the big established elements like the Skywalkers, The Force, etc. Give him a new world far, far, away from the OT and I'd be happy to check it out.

    Knights of the Old Republic would be the best approach IMO. Plenty of material to plunder for ideas, despite what KK says.

    I’m kinda torn on this. I can see that there’s material, but it’s all prequel stuff - it gets stifled by the fact that you already know the future of the story and where things will end up - how the various powers in the galaxy will come to be, how the Jedi and Sith dynamic will play out...

    it’s a bit like how Trek went from the TNG/DS9/Voyager era and has then dwelled on Enterprise and Discovery and all these ‘long before all this happened there was X’, and only now with the imminent Picard series do we see things move forward again.

    For me I’d like to see them move the overall story of the galaxy forward - what comes next, whether by a day, a year or a century, what new challenges lie ahead rather than how did we get here.

    Well, I PERSONALLY think that RJ's trilogy will be old Republic...or at least it should, considering the MOUNTAIN of source material that is now "Legends", but beyond that, I personally believe that Rey isn't done being "Rey Skywalker" on film, and will either have her/their own independent trilogy, or will continue on with the saga...which has yet to be announced due to the amount of SW projects that are on Disney/LFL's plate currently.

    Also remember that B&W had their own trilogy deal until they backed out and went with Netflix, and I'm not sure that that trilogy would just get cancelled because the writers departed....so there's that....and I suspected that their movies were going to be Old Republic based, so I figure either way, we're going to see some history with Sith and Jedi....but when is the question, but it'll be the next set of movies...I believe.

    Good points.

    I also wouldn't mind this approach. Skip ahead and take out all current characters and have a wandering Jedi introduced dealing with stuff less galaxy changing and maybe researching the legends of Jedi and Sith. Giving us glimpses into the Skywalker Saga from a different POV.

    Go somewhere new. Where new stories and new ideas can be explored.

    I love the OT. But we need to move beyond it or it just becomes the same story over and over. I thought (for better or worse) TLJ was a step in that direction but TROS went right back to the well.

    The PT, (which I do not really care for) at least tried new things. But it tried them and I managed to still love Star Wars even though it would be over a decade before I had SW content I felt connected to again. People need to stop being afraid of change and new ideas.

    On top of the same story repeating itself, staying in such close proximity to it makes it all too tempting for the writers & directors to fall back on fan service or even direct tie-ins. That isn't to say that having stories related to the episodic films is necessarily a bad thing, but I do think after 3 trilogies, 2 spin-offs and 3 animated shows that tie into them that's it's high time we let those stories rest and introduce new characters, locations and stories that can stand on their own two feet.

    Right. I'm even cool if they want to do a Rey movie about the beginnings of a new Jedi Order. Just make it it's own thing. Bring in a writer director with a clear vision that ISN'T just a fan service or member berry type person. It should feel different at some point.

    It really worked for TFA because it was getting us used to SW again. But it hasn't worked (for me) in the other stuff as much because it just feels safe and kinda lazy now when they just resort to call backs and fan service.

    I'd rather not like the next movies with a passion than feel like I did after TROS again, which is ultimately apathetic. I still talk about it to work through things but it already feels a million miles ago.

    I'm taking this with a grain of salt, but Jason Ward says he's heard the same thing.... The High Republic era or some other name. 400 years before the Skywalker saga. I guess Yoda could be involved.

    What do y'all think? Is that far enough removed to tell new stories effectively?

    Far enough removed yes, but why go backwards again when there's a whole new galaxy out there post-TROS?

    I voted Mandalorian-Jedi war because that's the only SW movie set in the past I'd want to see. "Other" is the best choice.

    AMEN TO THAT. My inner cynic says it's because they have NO IDEA what to do in a Post-TROS galaxy. That without the Sith, without Palpatine, Lucasfilm doesn't know what to do. That they don't have a vision of where the series can and should go moving forward. And when you don't have a plan you go back to old habits that "will surely make the fans happy!"

    My inner optimist is saying that this is a stalling mechanism for making a plan. If the next movie is set in the past, the ones after will be set in a Post-TROS after they've figured out what that looks like. This is also what the time off is for - to figure out how to do that.

    But here's a question for everyone. We always so "go forward to other parts of the galaxy/move beyond the Skywalkers and the Sith/move forward/etc," but what does that look like to you. Like, if you could create a Star Wars story in a post-TROS world, what would you create. I'm curious because I too say that and sometimes I don't have ideas lol!

    Unless they go way into the future anything they do post-ROTS would essentially be dead on arrival sequel in China. Moving 400 years back would be mostly new and also have some known elements. Moving back 400 years seems only to keep Yoda around.

    I do love the idea that Lucasfilm appears to have spent considerable time planning out what they're going to do. This is exactly what they need to do going forward.

    I'd be ok with this. Back then you could see some familiar locations like Coruscant and the Jedi temple. Maybe Yoda could appear, not sure whom else. Yaddle? But for the most part you'd be seeing all new characters and new stories. The villain would have to be non Sith, I suppose. Not a bad thing.
