    A long time ago, in a galaxy far,
    ......far away. . . .


    A vast sea of stars serves as the backdrop for the main title, which flies off into infinity. War drums echo through the heavens as a rollup slowly crawls into infinity.


    Episode IX
    A NEW ORDER
    Despite preserving the spark of hope that Luke Skywalker, in his final actions, returned to the galaxy, Rey and the heroes of the REBELLION have struggled to end the conflict which has since engulfed the galaxy.

    Having swiftly silenced any system which has dared to oppose his rule with the might of his NEW ORDER, Supreme Leader Ren is on the brink of winning the war.

    Now obsessed with finding Rey, the Supreme Leader has dispatched his loyal Knights of Ren in an attempt to end the legacy of the Jedi Order once and for all....

    What's with all these Dark Side titles? The Saga has to end on a positive note. They are not going to change it that much.

    I can't really write competently in English, but I can at least think of a title: FIRE ACROSS THE GALAXY

    We are the spark, that will light the fire, that will burn the First Order down.”

    Someone can take it, and run with it.

    The Resistance has relocated to the Outer Rim and restored their numbers to a respectable level. As Supreme Leader Kylo Ren leads an unhinged campaign for militant domination of the galaxy, his mother General Leia Organa does all she can to defend the few free areas left in the galaxy.

    While General Hux oversees the assault on a couple core regions -- which if conquered by the First Order would officially end the war -- Kylo and the revived Knights of Ren track down the remaining Jedi Rey, hoping to capture her alive.

    As Rey pilots the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca, Poe Dameron and his elite squadron of pilots head to the rendezvous point to obtain top secret First Order military plans, which Rey was sent to receive from an old friend of the rebels named Lando Calrissian. This information is the exact break the Resistance needs in their most desperate, dying moments. It's now or never for the Resistance, as the First Order is closing in quickly on total domination...

    Episode IX
    A NEW ORDER (I love this title...it sounds right!)

    The galaxy is at war! The FIRST ORDER has tightened its grip and established itself as a new GALACTIC EMPIRE. However, the legend of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker has ignited hope throughout the galaxy, and star systems are now rebelling against their Supreme Leader.

    Led by General Leia Organa, a star fleet has amassed in the Outer Rim, and has started a blockade on the Supreme Leader's castle on Mustafar.

    Hoping to gather more allies to the cause, the General has secretly dispatched Rey, a Jedi Knight, to the planet Coruscant. Little does Rey know that the vile Knights of Ren are already present on the planet, and that they are about to unleash a new weapon on the galaxy...

    well the theme seem to be balance of forces in this new trilogy i honesty dont see a side winning but you still need conflict in sw so having ren totaly take over but having a mutiny of say hux and military industrial complex trying to sell arms to the rebels and having good guys from rebellion join the good guys from new empire and climax be that its a galactic empire now but with a good side at the end puting the rey's jedi order in charge of administrating law and kylo giving up some powers to a new reinstated senate but keeping control of the military would fit better.
    like in d&d term
    old republic =chaotic neutral
    empire = lawful evil
    new republic = chaotic good
    first order = lawful evil
    new jedi order = lawful neutral

    and to those who say it needs to end with representative democracy because thats the only good option i say get out of my escapist fantasy world i dont want star wars to mirror the real world.
    its one of my main beef with the prequel is that they kinda change it that the old republic was too similar to modern systems , the senate that i imagined the emperor abolished in ANH wasnt a democracy it was more like a house of lords for nobles and land owerns like the roman empire.

    as for ren early years i think like the first emperor in china , ask the chinese if he was good and people agree he was actualy insane but he his viewed by history as one of the greatest because he unified the country and stopped incessant wars.
    pps in the galaxy probably just want a stable system and end of wars at this point and dont care who runs the ship.

    then if they want keep doing movies after they just time skip a few centuries and you have a large pool of jedi characters having to deal with blancing out the darksiders of the military

    Episode IX

    A NEW EMPIRE

    Five years have passed since the BATTLE OF CRAIT and the galaxy is now in a state of all-out war. Led by SUPREME LEADER REN, the FIRST ORDER has become the NEW EMPIRE, strengthening it's grip on power and finding a permanent base in the castle of his grandfather, LORD VADER on MUSTAFAR.
    Led by GENERAL LEIA and the self-trained JEDI KNIGHT REY, the RESISTANCE has been steadily regrouping its forces from a new hidden base on the grassland planet of SICEMON.

    Unknown to the rest of the RESISTANCE, JEDI KNIGHT REY and GENERAL LEIA have also been secretly training a small group of force sensitive padawans, inspired to come forward following the legendary return of JEDI MASTER LUKE SKYWALKER.

    Now, after intercepting a NEW EMPIRE communication indicating that SUPREME LEADER REN was regrouping his feared band of warriors, THE KNIGHTS OF REN and preparing an imminent attack on an unknown planet, GENERAL LEIA dispatches her first officers FINN, POE DAMERON, and REY on a secret intelligence mission to the planet of Mustafar.

    Once more, the fate of the galaxy rests on the shoulders of a small band of brave fighters, and they are the only hope of ending the tyranny of the NEW EMPIRE once and for all...

    Plot Ideas:
    It was a trap. Rey etc. turn up to find that Kylo was planning this all along, he knew how his mother would react and has already dispatched the Knights of Ren to the Resistance base to attack them. In the resulting attack, Leia is killed (she only appears briefly in the movie as a CGI hologram). Some of the resistance manages to escape and only one of the new Jedi (broom boy, with help of BB8).

    In the attack on Mustafar, it is clear that Kylo's powers have grown dramatically. He is wearing Snokes kyber krystal ring which makes him more powerful with the force. An overconfident, Rey attacks him thinking she can win easily again, and in the resulting fight, she loses an arm and her saber. She is rescued by Finn and Poe and they manage to desperately escape. In the fight Kylo taunts her about her family which makes her lose focus, with some new derogatory claim, about them making her doubt what he told her in TLJ. Hux is killed by Kylo for failing to defend the base from them getting in (get rid of him early)

    Returning Rey to whats left of the base etc are despondent. Rey (finds the remaining resistance who have survived on a large getaway ship. She gets a new mechanical arm. Rey finds broom boy, the only surviving padawan. In a desperate attempt to gain troops they get in touch with General Lando Calrissian. Finn and Poe go to CLOUD CITY to meet him and get troops. Rey decides to go back to Jakku to find out 100% who she actually is, saying that is her weakness and that until it's resolved she won't be able to match the new Kylo, that he has discovered her weakness and is using it. She takes broom boy who is also an orphan. They return to Jakku and capture Unkarr Plutt demanding to know exactly who she is or they will destroy him. he reveals her parents were not drunks but slaves, and that she was stolen by a mercenary drunk gambler and sold for money. He apparently bragged about it to Unkar Plutt and others in a bar in jakku. He killed the parents and put them in a shallow grave. They were not force sensitive but said Rey was a gift from the galaxy and that they had visions of someone (matching description of Yoda )who said the force would awaken in them through their daughter and that she would be unlike anything ever before, with so much power she wouldn't even require training and that she would rescue a Skywalker from themselves. She tracks down the mercenary who is now old and sick (some slippery character who it is revealed steals children from their parents and sells on for money, a human trafficker) and fights her anger refusing to kill them but asking him to take her to the graves of her parents. She finds it, they come to her in a vision and they say their death was worth it for her life, and that they loved her and she must save the galaxy and that they now live in the force because it has chosen them and her. She asksfor her name and tehirs, they say they were slaves and have none and she must find her own. Meanwhile, the mercenary has contacted the FIRST ORDER and they dispatch one of the KNIGHTS OF REN to find her. In the resulting fight, one Knight is killed and so is Unkar Plutt and the mercenary begs for his life as Rey consders destroying him. Rey says she is a Jedi and will not kill out of hate or anger, and that the rest of his life will be more painful than his death now and that she pities him and that he will soon kill himself, and that his sickness means he is no longer a threat to anyone. after this Luke appears and says Rey is now a true Jedi and says there is no light left in Ren and she must face him.

    She rejoins Finn and Poe and they have new forces led by Lando who says he owes them this for his old friend Han. The last ultimate battle starts on Mustafar. Full on battle happens. At the end the Knights of Ren turn on Kylo just like he did to Snoke, while he is fighting them Rey and the new resistance army. They cut off his hand and when he loses his ring he loses his new power. After a long struggle the Resistance win. Kylo on his deathbed says that the Skywalker blood is now dead, that they are all gone. Rey says the name will live on forever through the light side of the force and the galaxy will be at peace, and she strikes him down.

    At the end Finn, Rey and Broom Boy are together. finn and Rey have the romantic interest developed throughout the film. Three orphans together. they say they have no family. Rey says they are family. Broom boy says he doesn't even know his own surname, they laugh and say neither do they. Rey says they should take the name of Skywalker. They link arms together under two suns while the galaxy celebrates its famous victory, Luke and Rey's parents as force ghosts looking on, as all are finally free.



    Note: Just a few ideas that could be padded out, not saying its perfect just having some fun! :)

    It's never gunna happen, but here goes...

    STAR WARS
    Episode IX
    Rise and Fall of Legends

    With the news of Grand Leader Snoke's demise, and the loss on Crait, the First Order under Kylo Ren has continued to lose ground as the Resistance has brought a semblance of peace to the galaxy.
    With the enemy seemingly defeated, General Leia prepares to give her farewell to her friends and troops and pass the torch of leadership to Poe Dameron. After four years of battle, this will be the first time the heroes of the latest war will have come together in one place.
    But out in the far reaches, an old darkness has emerged and brought the First Orders remnants to new purpose and readies to strike at the very hearts of the Republic, echoing the terror of a past almost forgotten...

    Fade in Super Star Destroyer Chimaera...
