    I think it would be cool if there would be a Mandalorian Civil War at some point in the ST or perhaps in a fourth SW trilogy(Episodes X-XII) with the New Republic fleet against a fleet of Mandalorian ships in spectacular space battles or land battles with the Mandalorians vs. the Rebels and/or Jedi.

    I think that the Inquisitor and the New Sith will be the enemies in Episode VII and throughout the ST. So maybe a Mandalorian Civl War with a new Mandalorian army & a new Mandalorian fleet of warships and starfighters against the New Republic could be a storyline reserved for a fourth SW trilogy set years after Episode IX.

    I wouldn't mind the Mandalorians as antagonists for the Sequel Trilogy but from what we know so far from the leaks about Ep 7 that they won't be appearing. Possibly in Ep 8 though assisting the main villain or something.

    If you want to discuss a possible trilogy taking place after the current one perhaps this thread should be taken to the General Movie forum.

    You never know. Since Disney owns the franchise. Anything is possible. If the new heroes of the ST become popular with the fans. There will be plans for another trilogy(Episodes X,XI and XII) set either a few years or a decade after Episode IX with the post-Episode IX adventures of Daisy Ridley's and John Boyega's characters ushering in a new era of SW and will likely be released in 2027(the 50th anniversary of the release of the greatest film of all time STAR WARS!)

    The question I have on Mandolorians is: What happens to Mandalore after 'The Clone Wars', Darth Maul storyline? The only reference to the Mandolorians since is in Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, and Sabine Wren in 'Rebels'.

    He doesn't have anything written for the Kenobi spin off, and that's happening...

    Disney will ride this horse long into the sunset...

    Are you sure that Lucas didn't have any notes, outlines, or treatments regarding the spin-offs? I have read that Lucas, in his own wishy-washy way, envisioned the saga to be 12 parts, like the old serials that he used to watch. I always thought that he compromised his goal of four trilogies to instead be three trilogies, and three spin-off movies.

    Well, I hope there will be more movies in this current series beyond Episode IX. I'd also like to see Mandalor get the cinematic treatment as well -- love the whole concept.

    However, as far as George having anything written there are two things to consider:

    1st - Yes he did have more than just the 3 treatments for the ST when he sold LFL. He said as much in interviews after the sale that he sold the treatments and some outlines for spinoffs and a bunch of other things. They could make Star Wars for 100 years.

    2nd - George Lucas no longer owns Star Wars which means Disney can do whatever it wants. And they have the deep pockets to hire a slew of writers to create the stories after Episode IX that George didn't.

    Do we know this as a fact? Brilliant if true. Cant buy that Obi Wan ment to live out the rest of his day as a hermit on Vaders home planet to look over Vaders son without seeing some action. (take that however you want) His story from Ep III to IV is crying out to be told.

    Well... one can say that during that time, there wouldn't have been much more important than that... but I agree that it probably wouldn't take 24/7 monitoring

    On the contrary, I am quite certain that he did. Disney would not have paid more money than God used to make the universe unless they thought they could recoup their investment... and yes, I remember the original (and I am that old) idea for 12 movies, 2 hours each, 24 hours of Star Wars shown round the clock...

    What I meant was that they will mine every spin-off avenue they can, like they are doing with Marvel... and they (hopefully) will be a bit hands-off, letting the team in place run with what they are, and them funding X amount of Y media over Z time...

    Lucas has long talked about having notebooks worth of material and backstory written... and any page of that can probably be turned into a spin-off. What I meant by what I said was that (while I am sure there is copious source material) nothing had previously been singled out as "this will be a spin-off movie, here is the treatment, etc" But a ton of source to draw from and slice out a section, to be sure...

    Expect the theme park experience to be great... Jedi summer camp, anyone?

    I have said it before and I will say it again, I do not foresee Mandalorians being villains in the main series. They are extremely interesting, as the massive amount of EU material on them shows. It's impressive to think that this all started because Boba Fett had really cool looking armor.

    The issue is Mandalorians aren't a galactic level threat like the Sith. It would be like saying Jason Vorhees is going to conquer the Earth in his next film. Some things are small scale, some things large scale. Mandalorians are extremely interesting, they will have a spin off or two devoted to them. But like the witches of Dathomir, they aren't main series villain material.

    Mandalorians I think can be a galactic threat because they are a conquering species and they have their own shipyards and could build a massive armada of ships to strike against the New Republic. I just think that a war between hundreds or thousands of Mandalorians in space dogfights with their warships and starfighters against the New republic warships and starfighters or in land battles against the Jedi or Rebels would make an awesome future Star Wars movie episode whether in the ST or SST.

    I can't see them as THE threat, but I can certainly see them on the battlefield

    While I agree with you on your post's face, TCW definitely set up that the Mandalorians had a war-mongering past and that there was a lot of under-current of dissatisfaction with the new "peaceful" ways. In the years since TCW they could very well have regressed into those ways and re-emerge as a very formidable threat to peace in the galaxy and I think that would be a very cool storyline to explore post ST.

    In fact, before we even had very much info at all in the early days after D-Day I speculated something extremely similar as it pertained to the ST -- that the galaxy was still in chaos and that the New Republic was very fragile and that several factions, including the Mandalorians, would be waging war for control.

    Riiiiiiiiight. You think Disney will just make a few one offs after finishing this movie? Nah. If they have to they will hump the corpse of their purchase right in to the ground to make sure they get what they paid for. I remember after ep 3 EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE was saying a sequel trilogy would never happen. For whatever reason I just knew it would. Then I remember reading a discussion by Harry Knowles where he made a STRONG argument (kinda implied insider info) that George had made comments about letting blast blow over from the PT and then selling Lucas Film and letting someone do with it what they please. Star Wars is a BILLION dollar franchise. They won't stop until it no longer is.

    this ^ plus all the pot noodles in the world.

    Disney may have deep pockets.. but they didn't give GL 4billion to make one trilogy, couple of spin-offs and sell a bit of merchandise. Lord only knows how much the final bill will be for making the new movies as well.

    they will have to do something 'amazingly' bad to NOT break box office records next december.

    buckle up and enjoy the ride star wars fans ;)
