    It was a lone destroyer acting as a scout.

    if it all "rhymes" then it will probably be Jakku, a flashback, etc.

    The shattered planet of Alderaan that is slowly reforming into a planet under gravity, although for the next billion years it is mostly a ball of chunky debris with a huge Saturn-like ring around it. A difficult moment as Leia is laid to rest.

    I voted for Mustafar.

    I did because I think that would be an interesting location for Kylo Ren to try his hand at ruling the galaxy -- right from Vader's castle.

    In another thread or two I suggested he is on his own Dark Side path where he eventually begins to see the First Order as an obstacle between him and absolute rule of the galaxy.

    And so, seeing they are not getting things done (i.e. not eliminating the Resistance which has now reconstituted and grown into a galaxy-wide Rebellion), Kylo Ren is taking matters literally into his own hands, relying more on the Dark Side of the Force to compel both the First Order and the galaxy to bend to his will.

    One possible opening scene:

    A giant Star Destroyer soars over the planet, then careens precariously downward toward Mustafar.

    Outside: the ship quickly begins to burn up in the smoky atmosphere, which thins swiftly to reveal lava flows below.

    Internal shot: Alarms sound off. The First Order crew is frantic, fleeing, frightened.

    Admiral Pardon issues a plea into a microphone: Supreme Leader, we beseech you! Please be merciful! We tried--

    Inside Vader's castle. Kylo rises from his throne.

    Kylo Ren (Supreme Leader): And failed. And now... you pay.

    Kylo Ren reaches out, watches stoically as the Star Destroyer, just miles away, is swallowed by an ocean of lava.

    Kylo Ren turns, motions to a command post. A hologram displays several nervous First Order commanders before him.

    Kylo Ren: Continue to fail me, and you will be next.

    Hux steps forth: We will crush the Rebellion, Supreme Leader!

    Kylo Ren: Crush. Or be crushed. Your decision. Do what you must.

    With another gesture, the hologram disappears. Kylo walks swiftly down the hallway, cape flowing. He turns, looks up reverently at a statue of Darth Vader, kneels before it, lowering his gaze.

    Kylo Ren: I will finish what you began, grandfather. This is my promise to you.

    Since I personally want the film to start with Leias funeral, I am not sure what planet or location she would be laid to rest on. Naboo is the safe bet, next to her mother perhaps. I voted for Coruscant and Mustafar though, as the funeral doesnt need to be the VERY beginning. Seeing Kylo at Vader's castle would be very cool, but seeing Rey and 2 new Jedi apprentices attempt to visit the Jedi Temple on Coruscant would also be neat. Unsure if Coruscant is under FO control, but I think it would be cool if the city-planet had been mostly taken over by the criminal underworld and had multiple regions governed by different crime lords, with a large chunk run by "Peace Keepers" who are trying to regain control. Anyways im going off topic.

    First scene will be aboard a Star Destroyer or will see a shuttle leaving a Star Destroyer, someone will come to inform Kylo Ren that his mother has died and he will force choke them. Then we will cut to Leia's funeral. I like the Naboo idea. Poe will give a rousing oration at the graveside to thousands of mourners which will act as the catalyst for a new uprising.

    I like this idea. In Aftermath: Life Debt, this asteroid field is called Alderaanian Graveyard. Also, it's worth remembering that surviving Alderaanian were given remains of blown up Death Star to build the station in Alderaan System to live on. So, I can see this happening.

    Alternately, I'd like to see a new planet.

    My guess is Jakku, just because of the symmetry with ROTJ. Not that I necessarily want this. I just think it will happen.

    I’m hoping they start over the planet of some major system, which is being fought over by Rebels/FO. Not Coruscant, as this has been done before.

    Or (dare I say) a moon being orbited by a super weapon.:p

    I think it's probably going to be an earth-like looking planet with a brand new 3/4 built starkiller base in the foreground. A new dreadnaught will slowly cruise over the top of the screne with Kylo-Ren's ship emerging from it and heads towards the new starkiller base. Tie fighters follow behind him. Cue scenes of starkiller workers wearing absolutely ridiculous looking helmets preparing for his approach. Kylo emerges and greets Hux.

    Pan to BB-8 and threepio approaching a really really rich and powerful dudes house. So rich he has an arm/eye robot thing talk to them. Inside we discover slave Finn, Poe frozen in carbonite, and a hologram of Rey detailing she offers gifts and is also very powerful.

    Best guess would probably be Ahch-To, where we will see Rey again: "Rey-ing About." (Whatever the hell that's supposed to mean.) It'll make the most sense story-wise, unless there's a chance we'll have a time gap in between 8 and 9.

    But seriously, who knows? The most recent entry opened with a space battle; whilst D'Qar was the first planet that reared It's fat head... so yeah:

    Kamino. I bet Kylo would love to get that clone army to spite Hux.

    Naboo for Leia’s funeral. Kylo will be there in the background using that cross galaxy force presence shiz to mourn Leia, but he’s actually on Mustafar.
