Well, with the news that Thrawn would be rejoining the Star Wars canon, I thought it might be fun for us to banter over who should be next from the EU/Legends to gain entrance into Star Wars canon, whether in film form or TV show form or other media form. I think you guys obviously know who I want. (But I find that one doubtful... depending on what and when we find out more about Luke's backstory post-ROTJ and pre-TFA). But what are some others?
So I thought it'd be interested to bring this up for discussion. Whether the rest of the new trilogy will follow similar naming conventions (at least, in how I see it). So for Episode I, we had The Phantom Menace. Which at first, was quite ambiguous. I mean, we had no idea what or who this might be referring to. Then Episode II and III come along, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, respectively, and their titles really leave nothing up to the imagination. They basically tell us what is happening. The clones will attack; the Sith will finally get their revenge. We have Episode IV: A New Hope. And again, it's a bit obtuse. What is this new hope? Why do we need one? Etc. etc. And once again, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, for Episodes V and VI. Telling us exactly what the deal is. So when the title for Episode VII was revealed to be The Force Awakens, we again had to wonder, what does this mean? Has the Force been dormant? Is it awakening in a person? Rather like the titles for 1 and 4, it presents a few interpretations. So then I ask... do we think the titles for Episode VIII and IX will go the way of 2 and 3, and 5 and 6, and give us a more concrete idea of what's happening? Do you want them to, so they fit the 'formula' set in the previous two trilogies? Or could you care less about the titles? I have to say, at the end of the day, I just want the movies to be good. But it would be nice if the titles kind of followed suit, paying homage to what has gone before.
There's filling a lot in between ROTS and ANH right now, but what era do you really want to see more from? I want more between The Hand of Thrawn Duology and Vector Prime. I want to see what makes Luke and Mara the power couple that they are.
