I swore up and down I saw this idea/discussion topic mentioned here, but I couldn’t find it and didn’t find it on FE or Reddit, so maybe I dreamed it up on my own…

So, just for fun to kick around or discuss, what sci-fi movies or Star Wars ripoffs could be tinkered with and repurposed to be their own Star Wars stories that take place outside of the grander stories?

I recently was watching a little bit of Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone and thought that this could be a cool, smaller story that took place in the Star Wars universe. The main character was definitely a poor man’s Han Solo, but maybe with some sly editing, you could make this a Dash Rendar movie that takes place before ESB, or forget connecting it to the main story, try to just make it seem like they are on Jakku and replace sounds with Star Wars sounds.

Battle Beyond the Stars could be a Star Wars Seven Samurai (even though that story was covered in both The Clone Wars and The Mandalorian).

I know these are crappy B movies, but was wondering if anyone else had thoughts or ideas just for discussion and kicking around or fun edits.
