    if you could make one thing happen in 2019 in any aspect of the franchise, what would you wish for?
    could be related to the ST, the new EU, merchandising, you name it. but you can only pick one thing.

    what's the most important thing for you to happen in the coming year? : D

    People to calm the Blast down and stop thinking Star Wars owes them a specific story

    you can have that one for free: let's assume a happier fandom is at the top of everyone's list (it should be).

    so what else would you like? : D

    I am well past having 'let's all be happy and sing kumbaya" wishes. I'll be selfish.

    I want to like EPIX at least as much as I liked The Last Jedi. If JJ manages to make me like it more, he will become legend in my eyes.

    ugh, just one?? :D

    I want Lucasfilm to stay the course, and be persistent. Some things need changed, yes, and some already have been. But I don't think any wholesale changes should be considered, even with another potential mis-step. Work out the tweaks along the way, but just keep going.

    Part of that is my wish for The Mandalorian to rise above and beyond the hype, and surprise anyone who is currently having doubts. I'm very excited for this show, but also nervous because I feel a lot hinges on the first Star Wars live-action TV series receiving a warm welcome. If it doesn't, I don't want it to potentially affect future projects. Maybe too much was made of the "Lucasfilm shelving some projects in light of Solo flop" but I really don't want to see another instance of that. Again... stay the course!

    Assuming a date with Daisy Ridley is off the table?

    I want Kylo Ren to live and not be redeemed.
    Set up a future story for him. I know the Skywalker saga is "ending" but that doesn't inherently mean these characters are done.

    They have cancelled character spinoffs and things set during the OT timeline.

    I could say I want an awesome EPIX or an announcement for EPIX being split in two parts. An announcement for an Obi-Wan movie. A book about Luke and Ben etc... But no! I'm deciding for something completely different:

    I just want to watch EPIX at the midnight premiere with @RockyRoadHux:

    Lego finally releases a model of a Mon Calamari ship. I get it, Star Destroyers are cool, but Rebels need some love with their capital ships too! Preferably the Raddus, because I NEED a TLJ Leia figurine.

    A 1:1 Bust of Admiral Raddus who was in fact the real hero of the Rebellion going in to back up Rogue One and secure the Death Star plans.
    The REAL important Mon Cal Admiral who didn't get a snappy line to be meme'd to death and thus the spotlight

    I really want some proper variety in the Nu-Canon supplementary materials as far as eras go. So many books and comics being published these days are set during the OT Era and revolving around the OT Trio. It's gotten to the point where I've seen enough OT iconography like X-Wings, TIE Fighters, Stormtroopers, and the "used future" aesthetic to projectile vomit like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. I'm not saying the solution is to shift focus to the Prequel Era or The Clone Wars (although, given the Nu-Canon offerings in that era, it wouldn't be a bad start), but would it kill them to start expanding the world a little bit? Try and make these comics and novels stand on their own by having ships, planets, factions or characters that you can't read or see anywhere else.

    It's 2019, and the sole prolific comic-exclusive character in the Nu-Canon is Doctor Aphra, with the novel equivalent being the personality-devoid caricatures of Chuck Wendig's Aftermath books. Part of the reason people harbor nostalgia for EU icons like Grand Admiral Thrawn, Bastilla Shawn and Mara Jade was because they were exclusive to books or comics, and a substantial offering to fans dedicated enough to pursue the expanded material.

    This comes from a place of genuine want and not one of spite or bashing. This is something I really think the folks in the Story Group are capable of overseeing, and with movie material winding down after Episode 9, I hope they take the opportunity to make the universe a little bigger by populating the supplementary media with memorable characters and engaging concepts...ones that aren't just recycled from the films.

    I want everyone to get along.

    I also wouldn't mind more info on how they plan to fill in the 30-year gap of Han-Luke-Leia adventures. I'd love to see a series of novels or comics announced.

    We differ a lot on the new canon but this is something I definitely agree with you on. It does look like they’re starting to head towards that direction with the novels, at least getting into more of the prequel era even if it’s still gonna be centered around characters we’re already familiar with, (but I’m not gonna complain about that)

    Well, there is a Padme book set between 1 and 2. I could be wrong, but this is the first time (including eu) that she is getting her own book. There is a book with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan set before 1. The different era's... they're coming just be patient.

    Please no. Having 9 be split into two parts defeats the purpose of a trilogy.
