    Default Things you do not want to see in future Star Wars movies...

    Things you do not want to see in future movies...
    What kind of things would you like to not happen in future Star Wars movies?

    For instance I don't want Disney to make Luke Skywalker a father figure to Rey. Rey already lost a father figure when she watched Han Solo die.

    Jar-Jar.Seriously though, I hope that the newer films don't repeat one of the mistakes of the EU and feature two many superweapons. Starkiller was OK, and the Death Star in Rogue One was of course highly relevant to the film's plot....but the old post-ROTJ books kept rolling in weapon after weapon after weapon. Sun Crusher, two new Death Star deriatives (prototype and Darksaber), giant Star Destroyers with Superlasers, World Devestator (Basically somewhat similar to Mega-Maid from Spaceballs, although much smaller) Centerpoint station, etc....and then there's the Vong's stuff.

    Don't lots of modern real world conflicts hinge around super weapons in the end?

    I agree with the variety argument. Variety is good!

    The words 'Written and directed by George Lucas'.

    Just joking. The point about the overabundance of galactic super-weapons just lying around is well made. If Episode IX is announced as being called 'Darksaber' then we might as well just give up.

    I found TFA too derivative and there's no need for future episodes to be the same. I'm pretty sure a SW film can succeed without playing the nostalgia card. Let future films take more risks.

    Probably little danger of it happening now, but I hope all current & future SW production teams find Wookiees making the Tarzan call when they're swinging on vines to be as unfunny and dumb as I do.

    Democratic and republican style governments repeatedly collapsing under their own weight and quick corruption schemes. Seriously, it took Plapatine over a decade and a massive Galactic War to turn the Republic into the Empire. It shouldn't be as simple as reacting to some terrorist attacks with a legislation droid.

    I actually don't mind that idea. However, I do not want the "Rey is a reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker" to become true.

    He is expressly not a Sith Lord. But all Sith Lords are pathetic in their own ways, even Vader.

    I agree about no superweapon. It is overplayed. I would prefer armies.

    I thought that was perfectly serious! Certainly the first thing that came into my head :-)
