Star Wars sequel-sequel trilogy ideas

Fredde

Citizen of Gotham
I'm not sure if this would be the right place to post this, but ever since seeing Rise of Skywalker, I've begun to have ideas about what a new trilogy of movies set after it would be like, and I would like to express them in some way (without clogging up the main Star Wars thread). Here's my very vague ideas. Feel free to add ideas of your own. Spoilers for all Star Wars movies might be found here!

Episode X: The Last Clone
Since Rise of Skywalker introduced a whole fleet of ships that each had a planet-destroying laser, it lead to another, apocalyptic war being fought some time later, in wich an arms race led to horrifyingly destructive weapons being unleashed, including new armies of clone soldiers. The movie is set many years after this war, when the galaxy is basically post-apocalyptic, without any central government, and almost all planets are isolated from each other. A small spaceship crash lands on a planet, carrying a warning that some Mysterious Evil Guys are coming with a deadly fleet. A group of heroes band together and travels across the planet in search of a legendary spaceship graveyard or hidden hangar full of spaceships or something like that, to use to fight this coming threat. The whole movie would take place on a single planet, with many different environments that the heroes travel through and explore (instead of there being a Desert Planet, Ice Planet, Jungle Planet, etc.). On their journeys, they run into an old hermit who turns out to be a clone soldier (so we can have old Temuera Morrison in the movie!), and he reluctantly helps the heroes find the spaceships. The movie ends with a space battle against the fleet of the Mysterious Evil Guys, and then the heroes sets of into the galaxy to find out where the Mysterious Evil Guys came from.

Episode XI: Curse of the Jedi
I guess there would be a lot of space adventures and journeys to different planets, but finally the heroes ends up on Coruscant, which was attacked by a terrible bioweapon during the previous war. The weapon wiped out all life on the planet, but left the buildings standing, making the whole planet one big ghost city. Deep in its bowels they find a stasis pod containing Rey. When they wake her up, she seems to have gone slightly crazy, and reveals that after having All The Jedi in her head in Rise of Skywalker, the voices continued to talk to her, leading her to Coruscant, but too late to stop the weapon, and leaving her trapped there. She joins up with the heroes (acting like their Wise But Flawed Mentor, like Obi-Wan and Luke did previously), and they find out that Coruscant is haunted by the ghosts of all the dead jedi, who reveal the various mistakes and failures of the old jedi order that lead to their destruction, teaching Rey what mistakes she should avoid repeating. Finally they manage to set the ghosts free to go to the afterlife, and keeps on looking for the home base of the Mysterious Evil Guys.

Episode XII: The Force of Others
I only have very vague ideas about this one. There would be some kind of final battle against the Mysterious Evil Guys, and we of course find out who they are. They would probably finally be defeated when one of the heroes realizes that The Force is in, and can be used by, all living creatures, not just those with a certain amount of midichlorians, and manages to channel the Force of every living being nearby (or maybe the whole galaxy) to defeat the Big Bad Guy (who might not actually be Bad).

As I said, my ideas are very vague. Who are the new young heroes? Who are the Mysterious Evil Guys? How are the ghosts freed? Will R2-D2 and C-3PO show up (yes)? I just wanted a trilogy that maybe fixes some of the mistakes of the previous films, without ignoring them or retconning them too much. I guess it's kind of fanfiction, but I don't think I have the skill or time to make it into an actual story.

I’d like a movie or series of movies that are set in the same universe, but not directly connected to any of the main characters from the Skywalker Saga. I’m not really interested in knowing winks or tenuous connections to other stuff. I’d just like a fun space adventure with some new folks.

I'd like for the series to lay fallow for a bit but I doubt Emperor Mouse would allow that to happen.

This is me. Have other Force religions which aren't Jedi, set it long before or after the saga. Use the idea to show me something new (but be true to the spirit of Star Wars, don't do grimdark for example). Let's have some space based swashbuckling but without baggage. Broaden it.

I would LOVE a film, or an exploration in a miniseries, about Chirrut's religion. He was probably the last Keeper by the time of Rogue One, but still, it's fascinating.

Alright, how about this: On the planet in Episode X, the Guardians of the Whills has grown into a major Force religion, and one of the band of heroes is a Guardian who uses the same cool fighting style as Chirrut. In Episode XI, the ghosts of the jedi are banished by a Guardian ritual, finally freeing the galaxy from the influence of the old Jedi Order and allowing other perspectives on the Force to flourish. And in Episode XII, it's revealed that the Mysterious Bad Guys are in fact The True Knights of Ren, a creepy cult of whom Kylo and Snoke were only pale imitations. They're established to be an amplified version of all the bad parts about the jedi, including baby-snatching, a complete supression of all emotions with brutal violence as the only outlet, an obsession with midichlorians and other biological manifestations of the Force, and a haughty conviction that only they know the true meaning of the Force. They are finally defeated when they are shown that the Force is much bigger and more complex than they ever imagined.

Well that made my idea seem a lot cleverer than it was! But yeah, I love the idea of Chirrut (as I understand it) - he doesn't control the Force but he does trust in it and it protects him as a vessel to do its will. It papers over the problem that most people have no connection to the Force and aren't important in the grand scheme of things. It means that the normal proles, the mes of this world, can have a meaningful connection to the Force.

I really like a lot of the stuff Rogue One did as well - the Rebellion was the real main character of that film.

Will there be any more main saga films? They killed all of the Skywalkers and Rey doesn't count.

Give it back to Lucas and let him do his movie where they shrink to microscopic size and meet the Whills inside Midichlorians or whatever. It sounds like an amazing trainwreck.

Or film that original script where Luke was a lady, Han had a laser sword and Chewie had a weird face.

I don’t think it’s fair that Vaeran gets a whole team of writers composing his posts while the rest of us have to rely on whatever odd scraps fall out of our brains.

Star Wars X: The Return of Episode IX with all the Plot Points It Should Have Had

Poe: "Intelligence from the First Order Remnant confirms it...[weary sigh] somehow, Finn is the leader of all the stormtroopers now."

Rose: *runs into frame, accidentally shoving Dominic Monaghan into a sarlacc* "That's great, but why are you upset?"

Poe: "Because I never got to tell him how much I love him."

Rose: "Maz is loading up her ship so she can find Rey and tell her exactly how she found Luke's saber, if you hurry you can catch her."

Poe: "You're right, I can! And Maz said something about how Rey was actually switched at birth and she really did come from regular people."

Rose: "What happened to Palpatine's real granddaughter, then?"

Poe: "Intel says she was a technician for the New Republic until she discovered her passion for herding nerfs."

And R2 has a weird arm dangling out of his head. And C3P0 was replaced by the robot from Metropolis
