    KraytHS-LW2.jpg Darth Krayt

    Asharad2.JPG A young Jedi A' Sharad

    Darth Krayt has the connection from PT as a Jedi Master who survived the order 66. He knew Anakin was from Tatooine and had a confrontation with Obi-Wan on Tatooine. He ended up on Korriban turned dark and ended up in a stasis. Kylo Ren comes across him during one of his sith treasure collection hunts and comes under his control. Darth Krayt has a hatred for the Skywalker family maybe because Anakin who killed a Tusken raiders camp who could have been the Tuskens who raised his mom. The confrontation with Obi-Wan could have been about Luke and he wanted to kill him because of Anakin and end the Skywalker lineage. I don't know why Darth Krayt as a Jedi named A' Sharad was not in Clone wars series at some point. My first created thread so don't kill me just your thoughts. Thanks

    Doubt it, lucasfilm is trying to use new ideas not recycle them from my observations. They could get ideas from him but not use his actual character. Tbh I wasn't a fan of the EU after ROTJ.

    There are so many ideas from the old EU that could be pulled and re-done to fit in with the new canon. I like the idea of maybe Darth Plaguies or Darth Krayt coming into play because they have a direct connection with the Skywalkers from Anakin that can come back to haunt Luke and gang. We shall see lets just hope that the new trilogy makes sense and continues the Star Wars saga forward smoothly.

    Once you start down the EU path, forever will it dominate your destiny. In other words, there's plenty of EU Sith Lords who would work. How would they choose which EU Sith Lord to use?

    Who knows maybe JJ has his top 3 baddies and decides with Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe catch a sith by his toe if he hollers let him go. ;)

    I think they are borrowing from many EU ideas and outside of SW and making something unique that might have connection but I don't think even if they use EU names you will see whole stories redone.

    I would like to see Plagueis or an ancient sith lord much more than Krayt or Maul!

    I really think Uber is Plagueis.. We never saw him in the PT, and JJ a fan I think would want to put him on screen.

    Me too. Andeddu (my favorite aspect of the Legacy era) was far cooler than Krayt imho.

    Please let Uber be a new character not under a different alias, please let him go down his own dark path.
