5 Stories I’d Love to See in Star Wars

I know, I know. Every single Star Wars fan on the planet has, at one time or another, said, “I wish they’d make a story about….” and put in their two cents worth on future Star Wars projects. I’m no exception. And while of course the good people at Lucasfilm/Disney can’t satisfy every fan’s wishlist, we all do have our opinions; I simply see it as proof of the richness of Star Wars and its storytelling potential.

So in an ideal world, what stories would I love to see? Well, here are my top five ideas (and this includes movies, books, comics, TV shows, or whatever medium may tell the story best):

  • Okay, so I know LF/Disney are done with the Skywalker saga, at least in film, but I’m hoping that books aren’t off the table in continuing Rey’s story. I would love to see what she does next, if she trains more Jedi, what the galaxy is like after the Emperor is gone. Is there another central government, or do all the worlds and systems simply rule themselves now? What about Finn’s Force sensitivity? Does he become a Jedi? What role would the Jedi play in this new world? What kind of adventures can Rey, Finn and Poe go on? And what is the legacy of Ben Solo, pertaining to Rey in particular? Is he with her in some form? Force ghost? Voice? I want to know!
Ochi of Bestoon was responsible for the death of Rey's parents, but he was involved with the dark side of the Force way back during the Clone Wars.
  • I’d love to know Rey’s parents story. Palpatine’s clone cast-off–what was his life like? How did he meet Rey’s mother? Who was she? What were their names, for goodness sake! What was their life like on the run from Papa Palpie, and how did they survive? Tell me this wouldn’t be a good story.

  • I would love a book telling the story of how Obi-Wan met the Duchess Satine Kryze when they were young during the Mandalorian Civil War. Qui Gon and Obi-Wan’s mission to protect her, what they did and where they went, the budding relationship between the two young people. And where does Bo-Katan fit into the story? Who are Satine’s parents and what happened to them? What are the particular politics involved? There may be some answers to these questions somewhere, but I want a book, darnit!
  • Shmi Skywalker‘s story. Where is she from, who are her parents, how did she become a slave? I suppose we could go back and back into the history and genealogy of the Skywalkers, but I’d love to know at least Shmi’s story. What were the circumstances of her discovering her pregnancy? I’ve heard a reference about Thrawn and the Chiss’ knowledge of “Sky Walkers,” though I haven’t read any of the books about Thrawn yet to quite know what they are. Coincidence? I think not.
  • This one is kind of obvious, and may be answered in some form someday, but the mystery of where Thrawn and Ezra disappeared to has to be addressed. Some people think perhaps The Mandalorian may shed some light on it, but who knows? Where do they end up, in what circumstances, do they become allies against a common enemy, or do they remain antagonists? And what about Sabine and Ahsoka’s journey to find them? Aarg, so many questions!

There’s literally a zillion spin-off stories that could be told in Star Wars, but these are at the top of my mind. They’re mostly character-oriented, personal stories, the kind that I particularly enjoy. And if none of these stories get told, that’s okay. That’s what imagination is for. Or fan fiction, if that’s your thing!

  1. Greetings Jedi Mistress Tina, first off “I’m glad to meet you” and thanks for supporting me and my little site. I may be able to shed a little light on the origins of “Sky Walkers” and Thrawn (don’t worry I won’t spoil too much I hope). From what I have read, the Chiss knew of and utilised the skills of Force Sensitives (mainly youngling aged) as navigators for their starships when travelling Hyperspace corridors/lanes. The reason being that the Sensitives could foresee any obstacles in the way and take avoiding action, they almost “walked through the heavenly skies” and were referred to as “Sky Walkers”. Maybe the use of Skywalker as a family surname is a co-incidence but usually at some point a connection/explanation manifests itself.
    Thanks again for the follow and I’m going off to read more of your postings, MTFBWY!

    1. Thank you! It’s my pleasure to follow your blog, as you may have learned I’m a big Jedi fan, and lightsabers are a big fascination. Very cool. And thanks for the “Skywalker” insight, that’s an interesting tidbit. Thrawn and the Chiss are definitely a branch of Star Wars I want to know more about. See you around the blogosphere!

      1. I have just read of your plans to get Jedi body art and am just catching up on your list of favourite Jedi….I wonder if Master Tyeth made your list? I never seem to make it on anyone else’s 😀 We’ll see a lot of each other in future for sure. (<Hope I didn't sound like Senator Palpatine talking to young Ani just then)

      2. Sadly, I am unfamiliar with Master Tyeth. Is he a Legends Jedi? (Will be googling him soon). I’m working on catching up with all that, but it’s a big job! Thanks for following, it will be fun talking Star Wars with you.

      3. Oh, oops! I thought you might have taken a name from Star Wars. Sorry, lol. When I googled Master Tyeth, I got “Did you mean Master Teeth?” So in the truest sense, it’s nice to meet you, Master Tyeth!
