I’m pretty excited for Rogue One too, and the Han Solo picture, but the sooner they can step away from prequels, the better. The fact that they have a whole universe to play with means they shouldn’t be focusing on small events that tie directly into previous films. But I like to think they know this too, which just means that Rogue One will be killer enough to justify the somewhat redundant story. At the very least it is certainly shaping up to be very different tonally from the main films, which is good.
What I DO NOT want to see is a Yoda film, as has been rumored here and there. What I do want to see, and we surely will get, is a Boba Fett film. Forget his bloated fanbase. He’s an interesting and mysterious character who was shown briefly in Empire (and, of course, subsequently lost all of his potential for coolness in his other appearances) - the perfect subject for a spin-off, especially considering the possibilities of a “Man with No Name” type film in space. Let’s hope it’s done right.
Films set during the OT would be nice. I know it’s a prequels and people hate it, but it would be interesting to see Coruscant under Imperial rule. It is sort of odd that we don’t see the Imperial capital at all in the OT. Would be a cool location for a GCW film (if they keep the politics out of it or at least to a minimum).
