Star Wars Anthology: Movies We Want to See
Headlines

Rogue One was the first movie that expanded the Star Wars universe without being in the main saga continuity. It opened up the universe to other characters not named Skywalker. Our Abel Loza lists some of his favorite possibilities for future Star Wars anthology movies.

Star Wars Anthology: Movies We Want to See

If you’re like me, the fact that we might have a Star Wars movie released once a year is a reason to stay alive. Christmas has now taken a back seat to Star Wars as the most important thing in December. Sorry Santa.  Recently, the new title for Episode was released, “The Last Jedi” (How very ominous) and the now third wave of Star Wars-mania is underway. The only difference is that with this latest wave could last a while, depending on how long they decide to keep releasing movies.

Rogue One was a massive success for Disney, and there is no reason why they couldn’t expand on the rest of the universe and canonize new material, since Disney made it official that that anything published before April 25, 2014 is no longer considered canon (except for all the movies and the animated shows Rebels and The Clone Wars.) What a great opportunity to expand the Star Wars universe to re-canonize some of our old favorite stories.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

So here is a list of Star Wars single-shot movies I would love to see come to the big screen.

10. Clone War battle movie

I know we have the cartoon (which is amazing. Check it out if you haven’t). I also know we had Episode II (which was not that amazing). Because Rogue One played like a war movie to me, I would be interested in a Star Wars movie that was just centered around a very important battle during the Clone Wars. Characters in movie like this would be expendable, yet, they wouldn’t be any less important or lovable. Movies like these (ones that are outside the immediate story line) also do a good job of showing that this is in fact a HUGE universe and that it all doesn’t revolve around the same family, so let’s get more of that

9.Darth Maul

This is perhaps the fan boy in me talking, but I love a Darth Maul origin movie. Darth Maul makes appearances in The Clone Wars but most of this is post-Episode I and nothing really before The Phantom Menace. In Rebels it was previewed that Maul will finally have the battle versus Obi Wan he has been seeking. How was he found by the Emperor? Why did he choose the Dark Side? These are things I think we would all like to see in a Darth Maul movie.

P.S. Here is a link to some concept art of a now canceled Darth Maul game that we will never get. Perhaps these ideas can be developed into a movie

 9. Shadows of the Empire

Gaps between each of the main Episodes is a great opportunity for untold stories to be told.  Spotlighting Shadows of the Empire could be a great epic story told that would grow the Star Wars Universe. Shadows of the Empire fills in the gap between Episode 5, 6 and explains exactly how and when Han Solo was found. The main story line of Shadows of the Empire spilled over three projects: a novel (which was the bulk of the story), a comic series and a video game.

The novelization is the main plot line, which explains how the character Prince Xizor is trying to take Darth Vader’s place. The comic book centers around Boba Fett and other bounty hunters and Darth Vader’s assistant Jix. The video game is centered around a Han Solo-esque character named Dash Rendar

A cool idea Disney could get from Shadows of the Empire is that they could make a trilogy within the trilogy. Trilogy-ception.

7.The Force Unleashed

I’m sure we have all played this game, or if not, have heard something about it. Unleashed is set between Episodes III, IV and tells the story of Darth Vader’s apprentice, Starkiller.  This makes me really excited for the possibility for a movie about a long lost Vader apprentice. Perhaps more interesting , this story would build on and expand on the relationship between Darth Vader and the Emperor. This relationship is almost non-existent in the original trilogy and vaguely touched upon in the prequels.

6.Yoda

Yoda is one of the most well known Star Wars characters, but is also the most mysterious. We know that Yoda is about 900 years old during The Empire Strikes Back, yet we know so little about him before The Phantom Menace. Even before the re-canonization of the Star Wars mythos there was little known of Yoda. A solo a movie that explores a bit of his history, while still leaving a bit mystery to the character of Yoda.

5.Qui Gon Jinn

Courtesy of Disney/LucasArts

I have always been extremely interested in the origin of Qui Gon. Qui Gon’s backstory took a hit with the redefined canon and a well done movie for Qui Gon could reiterate some of his backstory. It was mentioned briefly in The Clone Wars that Qui Gon was the one who thought Obi-Wan about becoming a Force ghost. If the climax of a Qui Gon movie can be about the process of becoming a Force ghost, that would be spectacular. Also, Liam Neeson in a second Star Wars movie would be amazing.

4.Knights of the Old Republic

Courtesy of Disney/LucasArts

Knights of the Old Republic takes place around 4000 years before the formation of the Galactic Empire and it is the Star Wars universe’s version of the “Medieval times.”  The main story of the Knights of the old Republic centered around Darth Revan and Darth Malak who set an armada to not only break up the Republic but the Jedi order as well.

During this period of the Star Wars history, there would be multiple Sith and Jedi fighting one another, as the “Rule-of-Two” did not exist. How awesome would it be to see 100 Jedi take on 100 Sith in a battle for the ages? In the prequel because of the  “Rule of Two”, we were very limited in Sith characters. Something like this would be a great story to tell and would perhaps spill into its own trilogy.

P.S. This was a FANTASTIC game. If you have yet to play it, please do so.

3.Princes Leia

Courtesy of Disney/LucasArts

With the recent passing of Carrie Fisher, a story about young Leia would be a great way to keep the memory of Carrie Fisher alive. One of the most interesting parts about Rogue One is that it was able to explain one of the major flaws that many saw in A New Hope, “How is something so big like the Death Star, so easily destroyed?” Well in Rogue One, they answered that. So what better way to clear up what Leia meant by “She was very beautiful. Kind, but sad.” It personally doesn’t bug me, but I know many Star Wars fans are bothered by the inconsistency that was created by the prequels.

2.Darth Vader Solo

Courtesy of Disney/LucasArts

The once scene everyone is talking about from Rogue One is THAT scene. You know which one I’m talking about. If they could stretch out that 20 second scene into a full length feature film, every Star Wars fan would love to see that.  Vader has always been talked about as a bad ass, yet we have very little glimpses of said bad-assery. In the comic book story line, Vader Down we find out what exactly happens to Darth Vader after he crash lands during the Battle of Yavin. This story line can be the basis for a solo Vader movie.

1. Obi Wan Kenobi

Courtesy of Disney/LucasArts

The reception of the prequel Star Wars movies are mixed (to say the least). We can gree however  what Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan Kenobi was a highlight of the three movies. There are so many unanswered questions about the whereabouts of the Jedi Knight between Episode III and Episode IV.  I think a solo movie  would be a very interesting and the one I would be most excited for. Bringing back Ewan McGregor as an old and grizzled Jedi who has wondered the deserts of Tatooine can be the only acceptable actor for this role.  Although nothing has been made official, there have been rumblings from executives and fans alike for an Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film.

Which possible idea for a fild did I leave out?

Out of the ones i listed, which one would be the best for a Star Wars Anthology film?

What do you think of Rogue One?

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
