The Usual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

Bingowings said:

I still think we missed a grand opportunity in the sequel trilogy. Consider the chaos of the last years of the Republic. Putting things back together after ROTJ would have been deeply frustrating for Leia. She has the Skywalker blood. She lost her home. The war as left a squabbling mass of political intrigue. She could have invented the First Order. To give the Republic something to unite against but eventually the allure of the powers she was using could have corrupted her. Imagine the reveal that it wasn’t Palpatine pulling the strings of Snoke but our beloved princess. Wouldn’t that explain why Luke would lose faith? Especially if she had warped her own son into becoming the new Vader. Rey could just be the Force readdressing the imbalance as it did with Anakin. How the hell someone would edit the material to make this work I don’t know. Perhaps replacing the Smoke model with a cowled figure that could add plot changing exposition. Just imagine Kylo’s face when Snoke says" I am your mother"😁
