To be completely honest, I do not want any of the OT characters or events be stained. So I don’t really want any directly OT-related spinoffs.

Stained? I doubt the original trilogy can be stained more than the prequels.

Well PT obviously stained a lot of OT stuff. But that doesn’t mean now the clean stuff (like Han Solo) should just be stained as well.

I repeat. Han Solo written by LAWRENCE KASDAN. Directed by the directors of the LEGO Movie. Lots of potential.

I may sound a bit weird but some things are best to be left alone. For example, the scene when Obi-Wan tells Luke about the “old times” is prefect by itself. No matter how good the prequel describing what Obi-Wan said is, it will always in a sense stain the scene.

An At Stars’ End adaptation would be cool, but I do think they’ll go with an original story. Still, as long as it is in the same vein as the Daley books, it could be pretty great.

I think Disney shouldn’t adapt Expanded Universe storylines because it’s just lazy. I think I’d rather see Lawrence Kasdan’s take on Han Solo’s past than an adaptation of an obscure EU novel. I know there’s some good stuff in there, but why would you want to see the same story again?

Speaking for myself, I wouldn’t mind having parts of the old EU recanonized. Adapting some of the stories to the big screen would be a good way of getting this done.

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.

Let us not forget that when they announced George was leaving and he was handing the keys over that they made a big deal about the fact that they had the entire EU to mine for stories, characters and settings.

…Take the fact that most stormtroopers are human in The Force Awakens. Did the clones expire after a while?

The troops in the OT are human too. They all have different voices and heights.
I dunno what happened to the clones. I’m not into the PT or EU.

It was explained in Rebels, which is apparently canon.

I don’t want to see ANY spinoff movie. But I would love to see a new animated show called let’s say “Shadows of the Empire”, which would take place between Episodes 5 & 6. I know there’s a novel (which I never read - I never read any SW novel), but if it’s good I’d like to see it made into a show

I’d love to see a Vader movie set between ROTS and ANH in which Vader is hunting Jedi.

I’d actually like to see something set in the prequel era. I think a well-written and competently directed film tied into the PT could do a lot to redeem that section of the timeline.

As far as Boba Fett goes, recent rumors about Michael B. Jordan being up for a part got me thinking about a neat scenario that I hope they use. In Aftermath, there’s an interlude where a character on Tatooine tries to buy a set of Mandalorian armor heavily implied to be Fett’s from the Jawas. I think it would be cool if Jordan played a new character who ends up with the armor and starts impersonating Fett, thinking like everyone else that he’s dead. He isn’t, of course, and either A.) he’s not wild about Jordan’s character using his reputation and hunts him down or B.) he develops some kind of elaborate plot that hinges on the fact that Jordan’s posing as him. The rumor itself is probably bogus, but if not, I think this is a good direction to take it in.

Well there’s also a rumor about the Fett film being about a Fett imposter so maybe you’re not wrong.

I want to see a spinoff with a score by Tangerine Dream.

That’s a pretty weird concept for a Boba Fett movie. Maybe Michael B Jordan is just playing a new character in the movie. Also, I think the prequels are too janky to be fixed. How do you explain midichlorians?

Ever Googled “Star Wars: Neon Noir” ?

I have now.

You wouldn’t, you’d just ignore it. There are plenty of stories to be told in that era where there would never even be any reason to mention midichlorians. In fact, since the prequels were already almost entirely focused on the Jedi, I think chances are if they went that route it would follow someone other than the Force users. The criminal underworld, maybe, or some other aspect of the war. It might even be kind of cool to have an Indiana Jones kind of thing set around or just before the time of TPM where characters find out about something that happened much earlier. Maybe that’s how you re-canonize some of the stuff that worked from Darth Bane and/or KOTOR. I’m rambling at this point, but I’m just super curious what a movie set during the Clone Wars or before with real sets and practical creatures and a sane script would look like. Not only that, I think that’s a good era for world-building stuff that’s maybe interesting but only tangentially linked to the main saga, since I’m so much less invested in the story of the prequels.

Well, the Genndy Tartavosky Clone Wars pretty much perfectly showed the timeline in between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Some people want to see a Palpatine movie, but I say NAY! I don’t want to suck out the mystery of that character. He’s much more threatening when he’s a mysterious behind the scenes manipulator even if he is the best character in the prequels. If the movie was centered around a Jedi, the movie would be boring because of lifeless prequel Jedis are, so an Old Republic movie might not be a good option. Really the only movie with prequel characters that could be good would be an Obi Wan movie which I outlined in my first post.

I don’t think I’ve made myself clear. I’m not necessarily interested in seeing a movie about any of the characters we’ve seen in the prequels. I’m just curious to see something set in that 40-20 BBY range, preferably featuring only minor characters from the PT or entirely new ones.

The world is definitely a colder place without a film starring Elan Sleazebaggano.

I’d enjoy an anthology film about someone who’s a slave of the Empire. Their goal could be to escape to a free planet.

I think I needed to see Episodes 7-8-9 being made but I don’t need to see the anthology movies. Until they prove me to be amazing I just see them as bonus. Although I must say that the idea of Rogue One is pretty smart to start those movies. I really want to see this one. But a Han Solo movie? Yeah, I’d like to see Anthony Ingruber in the role, but that’s it. A Boba Fett movie? Not interested much. A Obi-Wan movie? Why not but I’m not all sweaty about it either. I think I’m more interested by a strong idea or concept than picking up a character and make a story around him, that’s why Rogue One is fine by me.
I think a movie about the birth of the Rebellion would be interesting but I suppose it’s alredy kind of covered by the series Rebels. So I would go way back in time, before Yoda’s birth an tell the story of the first Jedi temple… although this story could possibly be told to us by Luke Skywalker in Episode 8.
