    Even if we have no idea of the plot....I thought this would be fun :) Here's mine.

    STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII

    THE FALLEN LIGHT

    The galaxy is poised on a blade's edge. The galactic senate, the NEW REPUBLIC, has been destroyed as several splinter factions fight to seize the position that once belonged to them.

    Estranged of their only ally, the Resistance must now come to terms with a most powerful faction, the dauntless MANDALORIAN ARMY, to prevent war with the First Order and certain chaos within the galaxy.

    Leading this endeavor, General Leia Organa has recruited countless newcomers to justify the absence of their greatest asset, a young warrior who has set out on a journey to seek the guidance and training of Luke Skywalker....

    Luke has died of a stroke.
    Rey has vanished
    Lucas is back in charge
    a dark time with bad dialogue,
    bad acting
    and green screen worlds
    and more, many more gungans
    and trade disputes
    and people standing in circles
    no hope.................

    Episode VIII

    THE SWELLING SHADOW


    The galaxy is in a state of flux. The fearsome Starkiller Base has been obliterated, but an even greater challenge awaits as both the REPUBLIC and the evil FIRST ORDER scramble to rebuild and take control of the universe.

    Seeking to disrupt the ORDER's sinister schemes, General Leia Organa and her RESISTANCE have secretly infiltrated the backwater construction world of Maida 12-18, where the assembly of a deadly new Starfleet is underway. Little does she know that the dreaded SNOKE is well aware of her plans...

    Meanwhile, on the ancient world of Ahch-to, a wizened Jedi Master has prepared a gift for his young apprentice...

    Episode VIII

    The RESISTANCE to the DARK

    Chaos! The GALACTIC REPUBLIC and the FIRST ORDER have suffered incredible losses as the detente they previously endured has dissolved into open war. General Leia Organa is now Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, and has utilized it's vast infrastructure to revitalize the REPUBLIC war machine.

    Meanwhile, Rey has undergone an intense training regimen under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker. Her friend Finn, is now on a mission to discover his parentage with the help of Poe Daemeron. As these allies choose their paths, their affinity for each other is not lost...

    STAR WARS

    EPISODE VIII
    THE ECHO OF DARKNESS
    War has broken out in the galaxy. After the devastation of the
    Hosnian System, the remains of the New Republic have
    teamed up with the Resistance to rid the galaxy of the sinister
    First Order and its power hungry Supreme Leader Snoke.


    With the destruction of Starkiller Base, the First Order is seeking
    for revenge. They have taken hold of several systems around the
    galaxy to increase their influence. With this new gained power they
    strike fear into the galaxy.


    Elsewhere, the scavenger Rey managed to locate Luke Skywalker,
    the last of the Jedi. He is the only one who can restore peace and justice.
    With his help, the Resistance may end this conflict....

    The NEW REPUBLIC is defenseless! After the destruction of the REPUBLIC ARMADA

    by STARKILLER BASE, the evil FIRST ORDER led by SUPREME LEADER SNOKE

    has unleashed a massive fleet of STAR DESTROYERS across the galaxy.

    Many systems have surrendered support to the SUPREME LEADER, others

    RESISTANCE FIGHTERS left to the neutral planet GENEVA where they

    begin plans to slow the scourge of the FIRST ORDER. Little time remains before

    the FIRST ORDER enslaves the entire galaxy. Hope is fleeting, until

    the RESISTANCE receives a message from two JEDI KNIGHTS...

    SKYWALKER FAMILY MESSES


    In the aftermath of the destruction of the STARKILLER BASE, The noble RESISTANCE has claimed a small victory, while the REPUBLIC is in tatters. Even with such a victory, GENERAL LEIA ORGANA never seems to get a freaking break, with the whole son going darkside thing going on and him killing his father last time and probably won't get a break in this episode either.

    Meanwhile, THE FIRST ORDER regroups and recovers from the loss of it's weapon, GENERAL HUX looks everywhere on his ship, The Finalizer, for his beloved cat, MILLICENT, who is nowhere to be found. Little does he know, she has been hidden by KYLO REN who is recovering from his wounds and wanted some comfort from the little cat. Meanwhile, CAPTAIN PHASMA gets a bigger role and plots revenge on the former stormtrooper FN-2187, now known as FINN.

    Our young hero REY has finally met with the last Jedi Knight LUKE SKYWALKER and offers him the same lightsaber his father killed a bunch of younglings with and a plea.....

    I'd like to use this as the frame of reference for my own hypothetical Opening Crawl.

    STAR WARS

    EPISODE VIII
    THE LAST JEDI


    Chaos reigns after the destruction of the REPUBLIC capitol of HOSNIAN PRIME by the FIRST ORDER. After STARKILLER BASE fired upon the planet and was destroyed by the RESISTANCE, the First Order mobilizes for a full-scale war to conquer the Galaxy while the divided worlds of the Republic are left in turmoil.


    KYLO REN returns to SUPREME LEADER SNOKE to complete his training with the other KNIGHTS OF REN. His murder of his father HAN SOLO and his defeat by the scavenger REY have given him a renewed sense of purpose to destroy JEDI MASTER LUKE SKYWALKER, his uncle and former teacher, before a new generation of Jedi can be trained.

    The Resistance, led by GENERAL LEIA ORGANA, struggles to unite the scattered Republic worlds against the First Order as they prepare their next assault. Believing that her brother may be the key to defeating Snoke and her traitorous son Kylo Ren, Leia has sent Rey to find and recruit Luke on the the mysterious world of AHCH-TO, the planet believed to be the home of the FIRST JEDI TEMPLE...
