Hi everyone. So right now, I’m busy plotting out my own take on what the Sequels should have been. I’m going to try and base them off of as much of George Lucas’ original ideas as I can find. I would like to ask you guys for some ideas right now on a certain aspect. George has said that the Sequel Trilogy was to be more Ethereal. I’m assuming that ties in with the Whills and how they reveal our Destinies are written. What do you guys think would be an interesting plot line to have that involves the Whills with the Force?
In my Sequel Trilogy, the Whills are immortal beings that created the Universe, and they Control the Force. They decided to create Midi-Chlorians in the Star Wars galaxy, to see what would happen, and have been keeping track of the Jedi wars in the Journal of the Whills.
Some ideas I have (though I might not use) involve the discovery of the Whills by either Luke or the Jedi Killer. Maybe they discover them by discovering first the Journal of the Whills, which details the events of a different Galaxy. If Luke discovers the Whills, then maybe it would discourage him to know that we do not have free will, for we are always adhering to the Whill of the Force. Maybe he ignores the call to action this time round because he believes the Whills will take care of everything. However, if the Jedi Killer discovers the Whills, then I’d imagine he’d want to either learn their powers or force them to do his biding. Maybe he’d want them to destroy the Galaxy and create a new one for the Sith to rule.
Another idea I have is that Anakin might be a Whill. I imagine a scene where Kira touches the Journal and is transported to the realm of the Whills, where she meets the ghost of Anakin who turns into Darth Vader under the right light. The idea is that Anakin is the chosen one, so his eternal duty is to preserve balance in the Force in this realm.
Those are some basic ideas I have right now. I have to be honest, this is toughest part of the Trilogy to come up with. I’ve got a nice political plot line, and a story for the characters and how the Saga ends, but I’m having difficulty coming up with something “ethereal”.
“Who are you?”, asked Kira.
“I am the balance”, replied the ghost.
