    Right now, I cannot help but think that Star Wars really needs to lean into a single time period. Like, right now we've got the three main eras: Age of Republic, Age of Rebellion, and Age of Resistance. Then there's the High Republic stuff coming, and a spattering of content that's outside of those categories.

    But the next movies really need to define what Star Wars is, and how it can evolve. If the next film is set in the Old Republic and then we get Rogue 2 (pre-Endor) after that, already alienated casual audiences will be all sorts of confused.

    What we need, is a comprehensive shift of all Star Wars media to the new era, at least for the most part. I know we'll probably have Mando for a few years, and Cassian/probably Kenobi too... but really, that should be it. Let the High Republic stuff play out, give us Jedi Fallen Order 2, finish off the original trilogy comic line... and then send all power to something new.

    Really, that's what I was hoping Project Luminous was anyway, because such a thing needs to happen.

    I thought that it would be cool to see Jedi armies that are fighting in wars against the Sith armies, hence why I voted for the old republic times. I also thinkk that having to see a story that is far in the future from the ST would be cool, even if it is about some deep space explorers that venture into the unknown regions and just discover different and new artifacts and planets (That idea might not suit a trilogy though, even though its unlikely anyways).

    I personally find these guys to be the most fascinating design in Legends. I hope someone brings them back into canon.

    I am not really particular about the era. I'd like to move away from the known space and planets we have seen over and over in all the media. Let's put a flag in something new and then pick an era.

    And contrary to overwhelming majority, I am not really into massive Jedi/Sith battles. I'd like a smaller movie, with a smaller number of characters to really get to know them and their corner of the galaxy.

    If I have to pick one era, it would be post-TROS. Move forward, not back.

    I voted for either before the PT or after the ST, but if I had to only choose one it would be Old Republic. Ideally, I'd make two movies based on Kotor 1 and 2, then have the third entry finally give a solid conclusion to those storylines. I honestly can't say I'm all that excited about this "High Republic" thing, but I'm hoping it'll at least be somewhat decent and allow extended Canon to grow. The only reason I voted for after the ST is because I feel like the franchise has spent an incredibly long time confined within the "Age of the Republic" and "Age of the Empire" time frame; there hasn't been as much material set after RotJ and/or after TRoS.

    Are we even sure this trilogy is still happening? I hope it is, because there’s nothing like seeing Star Wars in cinema to me.

    Anyways, if I had to choose I probably would go with a distant post-ST trilogy of some sort. I’d be fine with an Old Republic Trilogy, but I’m such a fan of Legends Old Republic content — I feel like nothing could ever live up to it.

    In the movie-making world, one can never be sure about anything until a film is actually released, but Rian Johnson's series is the most consistently confirmed SW film project in the works right now. There has been zero hints that it won't happen, and several re-confirmations to the effect that it will happen. So... no, we don't know it will happen (just as we don't really know that the Kenobi or Cassian shows will happen either), but seldom have a SW series in pre-preproduction been so consistently confirmed as RJ's trilogy have been. No one but hate-spinners and click-bait mongerers have ever suggested that Johnson's series is in trouble; by all serious accounts, LFL loves Rian Johnson (as they should).

    I’m glad to hear it. As you’ve said, a lot of rumors go around and that’s why I wasn’t sure.

    I’m not the biggest fan of TLJ but I’d love to see what RJ does with his own trilogy.

    Post TRoS for me as well. That would be my answer for any future SW.

    An awesome idea would be to make a movie or two set in the Old Rebublic, where the heroes have do fight the evil Sith Empire, and than a movie set after TROS, where Rey, Finn and Poe would have to deal with the previously hidden remnant of the said Sith Empire. Preferably with some of the more popular villains coming back.

    Something like that. But I've been thinking about putting a huge fleet into stasis (or something) and have it reemerge into the post-TROS galaxy. Ideas like that have been used in Legends for a while.

    It can be the fall/Rebellion/Resistance time period or anytime earlier too, I'm not too focused on the time as much as the place I want to see a whole different frame of reference in the same galaxy.

    New conflicts, new schools of force users, new politics, new threats that can eventually run into our more familiar ground and see what comes from that meeting if civilizations one day.

    I wouldn't mind, as long as it only has minor connections to the Skywalker saga.

    I voted for "After the Sequel Trilogy". I'm still looking forward to the upcoming Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan shows (especially the latter), but I do have a longing to see them explore a completely brand new era. Although if that happens, I wonder how far after Episode 9 would they set it? And would characters like Rey and Finn and Poe still show up, or would there be an entirely new cast?

    My second choice would be "Before the Prequel Trilogy". I'd prefer they move forward instead of back, as LadyMusashi said, but at the same time I am still curious to know more about the High Republic, and it would still fulfill that longing to see a new era. :)

    My third choice would have been between the OT and ST, as there's a fresh 30 years to explore after the Empire's downfall but before the First Order. Although we are starting to get that already with The Mandalorian and the (hopefully) upcoming Rebels sequel show.
