I’m thinking more of pushing the Prequels to later on like 2005 to 2011 and maybe the Sequel Trilogy being released from 1991, 1994, and 1997.

Also let’s just think if the Thrawn Trilogy never happened and if we can incorporate some elements of those stories: Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command. A few other sources of inspiration of how I could see the basis of a Sequel Trilogy in the 1990s being played out is The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars TV Show and Movie, the Jedi Prince books and the actual Prequels and Sequels themselves.

Awhile back I read this: https://www.reddit.com/r/fixingmovies/comments/i27pr4/what_if_the_sequel_trilogy_took_place_immediately/
and that’s what got me into starting this chat and maybe writing up a 90s Sequel Trilogy of my own.

Okay, that’s interesting. I skimmed through the reddit post, and it reminded of one of Lucas’ ideas for the saga. I think this was before RotJ (maybe even before ESB), where Lucas planned for Luke’s twin sister to be a separate character whom Luke would find and train after the defeating Vader. Together, Luke and his twin would go on to to face the emperor. If you want to go that route, that could work. Carrie Fisher would have been 35 by the release of your proposed sequels. Additionally, I think having Leia having kids could add a new element to the story of balancing her Jedi training while being a mother (this is a personal bias as the EU character Nomi Sunrider is one of my favorites as she was a Jedi and a mom, yet more could have been shown of her struggling to balance both).
