Here Are Some New Ideas Rian Johnson’s Trilogy Could Introduce

With Rian Johnson’s new trilogy set to come out…whenever…the slate will be wiped clean and he’ll have the incredible opportunity to shape a brand new story in this ever-expanding franchise. But with new stories come different concepts to things we may have or have not seen before. He has already announced that he wants to take the trilogy away from the classic Skywalker saga and begin a new legend. One that moves away from the iconography that Disney has been clinging on to for dear life. But how is he going to do that? Well, here are some of the ideas that I think could be instrumental in shedding new light on Star Wars. Enjoy!

New Galactic Soldiers

First Order Stormtroopers

Throughout Star Wars there is a common soldier of an army. Through the original trilogy it was the Imperial Stormtroopers. In the prequel trilogy, it was the droids of the Trade Federation and the Clones of the Republic Army. And now in the current trilogy, there are the First Order stormtroopers. So let’s say, theoretically, this new trilogy is set a thousand years into the future, as I explained in another post about Rian Johnson’s trilogy. There will undoubtedly be a new galactic order which means there needs to be soldiers to protect that order.

I think these soldiers should be actual warriors unprogrammed like robots in the fashion of the infamous stormtroopers but trained as people are trained every day in our real world to protect the galaxy they love. What their names will be, I don’t know, but I think it would be nice to see a different concept for soldiers beyond the monotonous clones and robots that we’ve seen before.

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Is Not the End, it Is the First Step Into a Larger World

During the Star Wars celebration this year it was announced that after The Rise of Skywalker we would be getting a break from Star Wars for a while. For those with Star Wars fatigue, I’m sure there were plenty of cheers and sighs of relief but as someone who’s a bona fide Star Wars fan, the news was a bit of a bummer. So, imagine my surprise when I saw this tweet.

If you look a little closer at the release dates on this list you will notice that in December of 2022, 2024, and 2026 we will be getting three new Star Wars movies. Yes, I said it! That secret Star Wars trilogy that we all knew existed has just been confirmed with literal release dates posted by yours truly, Fandango. That means these release dates are legit.

I am totally freaking out. This has been the best news of the week!

Should ‘Star Wars’ Get More Creative?

Star Wars is a multi-billion dollar franchise that Disney can easily milk for years to come with its countless stories that have been told over the years through its Legends canon. And yet, there have only been four movies and people are already starting to speak about Star Wars fatigue. How can that be? I’ll tell you why. The films lack imagination.

When The Force Awakens came out it was practically a replica of A New Hope, except with larger and grander schemes. The First Order is simply a remastered version of the Empire with barely any new creations.

Except for the Battering Ram Cannon in The Last Jedi which was pretty cool.

When Should Rian Johnson’s New Trilogy Take Place?

Rian Johnson, writer and director of The Last Jedi, has been given the unenviable task of creating a brand new Star Wars trilogy that is set to stand apart from the Skywalker saga which has been the backbone of this wonderful franchise for four decades. And that’s a great thing. One thing that has brought the Star Wars franchise to a skidding halt is its unwillingness to “let the past die” as one wise man (named Kylo Ren) once said.

The current trilogy is focused on a brand new set of characters who are living in a post-Empire galaxy but it’s set only thirty years after Return of the Jedi which forced the trilogy to bring back iconic characters, basically remake, beat by beat, a story that happened forty years ago, and kept the traditional ideas of Star Wars in place.

Then the two Star Wars stories, instead of focusing on characters and stories we’ve never heard of, also decided to remain in an area of the Star Wars universe that felt safe. Rogue One was a tad bit inventive as it told a tale of the rebels who stole the Death Star plans. And even though we all know what happened they still managed to make the movie enjoyable enough to become a billion dollar success despite the massive reshoots that took place through the making of the film.
