    Default What comes next timeline-wise after 9?

    While of course we're going to see more stuff covering other aspects of the 60-year something span of the saga, and before (High Republic), I'm wondering if we'll see some continuation post episode 9.


    I think at one point Lucas did consider a twelve part saga before limiting it to 9 in his original 80's plans.


    While of course the prequel trilogy led to the state of things by the time of the OT, ROTJ pretty much didn't leave much clue to what would happen next, apart from Luke "passing on what he had learned". It's assumed by many that the Rebellion would restore the Republic, although I'm not sure the full name of the Rebel alliance goal being "The Alliance to restore the Republic" entered into things (The "Restore freedom and justice" I think appears in the opening crawls, but not "Restore the Republic").

    I assume the resistance would probably try to do that I guess, although while TLJ seems to indicate that the First Order has pretty much restored the Empire's hold over the galaxy, ROS seems to imply they're still not quite there yet as Poe and others mention "free worlds" and the First Order seems mostly willing to accept Palpatine's fleet to become a "true empire". Either that or Ren's one year reign has been so poor he's actually lost several worlds somehow.

    One thing would be how the Resistance would correct the mistakes of the two previous Republics, but that might be an issue. The sequel trilogy Republic's problem was partially that it had sort of a weak (If "Cherished" fleet), since they didn't want to repeat the militarization that led to the Clone Wars and eventually the Empire, which was the old Republic problem.
    So maybe a more balanced approach would be needed?

    As for Rey rebuilding the Jedi, Luke in TLJ did state the order is somewhat obselete and maybe Rey will take that advice, perhaps being a one-person force for good instead of rebuilding the order (Luke also was initially reluctant to rebuild the order as well, it seems, as most of the media pretty much has him go on a Jedi scavenger hunt until it's encouraged he rebuild the Jedi, perhaps manipulated by Palpatine/Snoke so they could get a hold of Ben)....but she does of course have potential students as we know there's other force sensitives around-not only the Canto Bight kid but of course Finn. The Poe Dameron comic series also sort of implied he had some possible force abilities too, living next to a "force tree" for instance.

    Star War Adventures is doing a post-TROS comic, but nothing else in the pipeline yet.

    Most aliens species are going to band and form "the alliance to get ride of those filthy humans who are just making problems for everyone". (the ATGOTFHWAJMPFE)

    And really, who could blame them?

    Hopefully they move so far into the future they can sweep these awful movies under the rug.

    Amen. Instead of trying to make an easy buck on cheap nostalgia and lazy writing, what about trying to build something people 20 years from now will be be nostalgic about?

    Sounds ambitious eh? Well, you sure as hell aren't going to pull that off with people like Abrams or Johnson lads.

    They did that a bit with the Legacy comic series (Now part of "Legends" canon), although it still feel into many of the same broad plotlines of the ST (Jedi wiped out again, Republic also destroyed, a new Rebel alliance etc, Empire ascendant again) although it had the interesting plotline of an Imperial Civil War-basically the relatively good Fel Empire (basically the old Imperial remnant but with reforms, but still keeping stuff like Stormtroopers etc.) vs the Sith Empire.


    One of the most interesting parts was melding the Jedi with the Emperor's royal guard in the Fel Empire, creating the Imperial Knights.

    Skip ahead at least three hundred years.
