It's May 1980 and the Empire Strikes Back is doing wonderfully in theaters.
In a stunning move, George Lucas announces he is leaving film for good. However, not wanting to disappoint his fans with the many loose ends in ESB, he commissions you to finish the Star Wars trilogy.
How would you do it?
Some issues to think about:
What will happen to Han Solo?
Who is the other that Yoda speaks of and how does this person enter the story?
Will Luke and Leia be siblings?
Is the love triangle at the beginning of ESB really resolved? Does Luke still have a shot?
Is Vader really Luke's father?
Will any major characters die?
How does Luke confront Vader and the Emperor?
When does Luke go to complete his Jedi training?
Is there another Death Star under construction?
If Leia is Luke's sister, does she play any role in confronting Vader and the Emperor?
What new characters would you introduce?
EDIT: More things to ponder
Where does the final confrontation happen?
To Ewok or not to Ewok?
Will Vader survive the film?
Will Vader be redeemed?
Should Luke fight the Emperor?
Who is Luke's mother?
How will Luke confirm that Vader is his father?
How will Obi-Wan explain Anakin's turn to the dark-side and his lie to Luke, if at all?
