For those wondering, the plan is to see Thor: Ragnarok on Saturday. Not sure if that will be my post for Sunday morning, but I know I’ll definitely write one about if by Monday.
Apparently on The Star Wars Show, something I’d never heard of until today (again I like Star Wars a lot, but it’s not my go-to in the realm of nerddom), the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy said this:
“We’re sitting down now, we’re talking about the next ten years of Star Wars stories and we’re looking at narratively where that might go…”
And she goes into moving forward to episode nine and farther down the line with the new characters. But she also alludes go in different directions — which leaves room for a LOAD of options. There’s already the Han Solo “origin” type movie, and apparently there’s an Obi-Wan movie in development, which is great because I’d like to see some more Qui-Gon (and they’d better bring back Liam Neeson, otherwise you’re wasting my time).
But if they’re working on a look into the lives and origins of multiple characters, I might have a few ideas to run by them. Some better than others, but they’d all put asses in the seats.
4. Sith v. Jedi — Yeah my brief description sucks, I get it. ALL the Star Wars movies are pretty much based around that, I UNDERSTAND. What I’m talking about is make a movie from back when there were more than just one or two frigin Sith Lords. I understand all these jackasses betray one another at the drop of a hat, but Yoda’s alluded to there being a time where there was more. He’s like 1,000 years old so he may have seen one or two eras before where that as going on. And having huge fights like that would be more than just one Jedi killing 100 robots wouldn’t suck.
3. Yoda origin — Honestly, those two words would get EVERYONE on this planet to watch the movie. No questions asked. In reality, this should be the number one idea, but I really want the next two guys. But who wouldn’t want to see Yoda when he was younger? Better yet, I want to see who first taught him to be a jedi.
2. Boba Fett solo — Yes I’m a Fett fan. I know he didn’t say much during his appearances in 5 and 6, but he’s clearly an intimidating character. Plus he’s got some of the sickest gear of any character pretty much ever.
1. Darth Maul origin — The fact that this character was only in one movie is a sin. We saw 3 apprentices under Sidus/Palpatine: Maul, Dooku and Vader. Maul was the only one, as far as we know, that was never a jedi. There was a recent short series of Maul comics and the dude was filled with nothing but HATE. All he wanted in life was to kill jedi. Probably had a rough childhood, but give me more of that guy. For that matter, I wouldn’t mind a Palpatine origin either. Dude was a NUTCASE.
