What should we see in IX?

Author

If episode IX really is the last saga film, I want to see the stakes as high for the fate of the galaxy as always, but I also want to see the stakes raised high against the nostalgia of the audience as well. Imagine a return to Tatooine in a replica of the original movie, with an oughnslaught looming, and our heroes hiding out in the ruins of the Lars homestead or Obi Wans hut. Visits from the force ghosts when all hope seems lost. Snoke revealed to be the creator of the Skywalkers and has an obsession to destroy them. Imagine the possibilities. I want it to be similar to the Deathly Hallows part 2, where iconic locations and characters are not safe and anything could happen. That’s just my opinion, what do you think the last saga film should look like?

It needs a bigger Starkiller Base and some average-height furry natives that help the heroes topple the Empi-er, First Order.

I don’t for a minute believe IX will actually be the final numbered episode. There’s no way Disney’s going to do nothing but anthology films ad infinitum after 2019. My only hope is that they allow a reasonable amount of time to pass between trilogies. Maybe start another series in the distant past a la KOTOR and then come back to the “present” in ten years or so.

Anyway, as for what I hope to see in IX, I guess some sort of resolution for Luke? It’s hard to say without having seen VIII.

Didn’t you get the pan-galactic memo? Ix changed his name, he goes by Ford Prefect now. 😄

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

A definitive end to the Star Wars story would be a tricky to write as destroying whatever Dark Side faction would be anticlimactic as the conflict goes beyond the physical.

I believe in Rian Johnson

Luke finds out Leia is NOT his sister after all!
