From the Comments Section: A Fan-made Rough Outline of the New Star Wars Trilogy Plot.

 


One big annotation before you continue reading. The following plot outline has been posted by an anonymous member at the site’s comments section. He says that he has been fired from Disney and could share some info about the upcoming movies.
I just want to make it clear that there is absolutely no way for someone to have access to such info beside J.J. Abrams, Michael Arndt and Kathleen Kennedy. I’m posting this just because it’s an interesting read and you should consider this as something that came from the imagination of a Star Wars fan…



Edit: made another clarification in the title that this is fan-made!

Direct quote:

If you guys really want to know why you haven’t heard any official info as of yet, it’s because there isn’t any. I just got fired, so I’m going to spill the beans on what I know:There are still heavy discussions on how to do the new trilogy, and they are trying really hard to map out all three films at this point, and also account for contingencies such as the unexpected death or withdrawal from a cast member (let’s face it, the big three aren’t getting any younger or healthier).

Here is what I know from the last I heard:The big three is fully intended to return, and this will be their goodbye trilogy where they leave in a blaze of glory. Leia is to be killed off in Episode VIII, which will cause a division between Luke and Han, which doesn’t amend itself fully.Lando’s character is still being discussed, because they really only want him for Episode IX, where they intend to have him and Han die in a suicide run on the Falcon, leaving Chewbacca behind. The problem is they can’t justify his involvement in Ep. VII & VIII.

In Ep. VIII they want to introduce two EU characters, Dash Rendar and Kyle Katarn (who succeeds Luke after he dies in E IX), however Dash Rendar is still being discussed, and they are considering talking to Jason Court to reprise his role from the JK cut-scenes, but they also have other actors on the to be considered first list, even though he’s at the right age now and the one the fans of the games would identify the most with (partly the reason why I got fired is for bringing up all these things). The Vong will appear, but they will be more like minions (there is no longer an Empire or a remnant of it) of the new villain (who they haven’t decided on). Also, they will be fully susceptible to force detection and attacks (unlike the EU).

The children of the big three will share equal amounts of screen time with them, and will gradually become more important as the trilogy progresses. Luke is a widower, his wife (who may or may not be called Mara Jade), died giving childbirth to their only son, this plotline is only to serve to show that he was able to succeed where his father failed. Palpatine appears to tempt Luke’s only son (and is successful for a while), Obi-Wan appears to counter act that. They want Judi Dench to play Mon Mothma, but haven’t talked to her agents as of yet.


You can definitely see some fan favorite elements in this. What I really like about this post is that it really makes you think at the enormous variations and possibilities from all Star Wars sources that the writer and the director has to choose or ignore about. It’s not an easy job because they’ll surely try to show something never before seen in any Star Wars books, comics and games. That’s very hard indeed…

  1. I LOVE IT! I know it great work from all team there! J.J. Abrams, Michael Arndt and Kathleen Kennedy YOU ARE THE BEST!

    I love Yuuzhan Vong part the most! They are so cool and hot.

    Judi Dench idea is excellent!

    But best thing is that they think for all Star Wars trilogy from now not just for one movie. Which is right thing to do. Great team great story i love you guys.

  4. I’d have to go all out on this being totally insane and an inspired mix match of SW elements. I’d also say it’s far to tragic and less uplifting than any of the past SW. Of course that could have been what got Harrison Ford on board. He’s been all for Solo’s death for a long time…

    All that said I agree with you Viral. It does make you sit back and just wonder about all the variations. Kind of like the new Dark Horse comics of Lucas’s first draft. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it but it was really cool seeing Star Wars in totally different light.

  6. It looks like they want Star Wars universe to compete with Marvel universe and DC universe. That is good. I think Star Wars is bigger and better than Marvel/DC. But add more new heroes, antiheroes and ideas please.

  7. This is totally bogus, Michael Arndt is or has written the script for episode 7 and I find it hard to believe that the guy that wrote the script for Little miss sunshine and Toy story three, which were masterpieces in there own right, would have any trouble writting and finishing the film. And I would think a professional script writter like Arndt would be able to come up with an original story for episode 7 not rip off some cheesy EU story about The Vong. If any one hear actualy believes this $HIT you are a dumb A$$. I am sure that the script is done, I am basing this on the fact that Lucasfilms has begun the process of casting, casting ushualy does not happen till after the script is finished.

  9. This is absurd. The poster contradicts himself so often it’s not even funny. First he says they are having a difficult time mapping out the movie then he gives out all the plot lines for all 3 movies in a great deal of detail.

    I seriously doubt Disney/Lucas Films would allow anything like this to happen. What I don’t doubt is this person may have recently been fired from Disney. He then turned in the cast member ID, name tag and took off the Mickey Mouse costume. He is a bit ticked off and is just trying to get some attention. Personally I can tell you I worked for Disney in Orlando. I knew some of the animators that were working on Mulan and Hercules. I knew some of the secrets about those movies. Nothing spectacular and not worth divulging to the general public. So yhea he may have worked for Disney. So What. Post your real name and prove it!

  10. You guys are taking this post just too seriously. I would like to hear your ideas about the plot of the new trilogy. What would you like to see?

    1. I would like to see and hear references to the original and prequels (just not too many). I would love to see the original cast back in a supporting role as well, but introduce a new ensemble cast. I think this trilogy should have a much darker and mature story. Many people think that Star Wars is a kids series, I’d like to see them push the PG13 rating (I’m assuming it will get) to the limits. It would be great to see ghosts of Yoda, Obi-Wan, and yes I’d like to see Anakin’s ghost make an appearance. I think the story should focus on the Sith and not the Imperial Remnant. It would be neat to see the galaxy at a major low point at the point of crumbling from having dealt with the Sepratists, the Empire and now the Sith. The conflict should be resolved in Episode 9, but it will be cool to see them do a fourth trilogy 5 years or so down the road with yet another threat. So far much of the rumors I’m hearing are fantastic and EXACTLY what I want to see in Episodes 7-9.

    3. I totally agree that this should be a more mature story. Not to be rude but the original fanbase is quite old now… Actually so are the prequel fans.

      So I think Star Wars would be well within it’s rights to be a more adult film. However PG13 can get away with quite a lot. The Dark Knight anyone?

      I also think the Sith as a dark menace that is threating to somehow tilt the balance or regain control should be the central plot connecting the three episodes. This ties in the problems the hero’s children must face.

      I don’t want the original cast to be thrown in for fanservice. Make them have a valuable impact on the plot and or their children’s character development.

      Iconic vehicles return in some form. Be it old TIE fighters or X-Wings. A Star Destroyer needs to be somewhere even if it’s dry docked :P

    4. I think ONLY thing we all AGREE is that Sith lords should be the central plot in next movies. Not sure why but all fans want them. I think darth vader and darth maul are to blame for that.

    5. I think we all want the Sith because they are the true evil/darkside of the universe. The Vong was just a culture and honestly… will likely never appear in film form.

      Plus the Sith just like the Jedi are everlasting. It’s a conflict that has no end. Just brief moments of peace… Sometimes years decades or even centuries. One of them always comes back.

    6. i think the plot should be what mr.lucas already has imagined in his head :) he had ideas for 7-9 already in the 70s & in his own words: “it would be about an elderly Luke Skywalker passing on the torch, having a obi wan type role”

      & that is exactly what i want to see: A bearded Hamill, training new jedi & to see Leia as a jedi also.
      -i want too see an original story, something NEW, not anything from the EU (although i don´t care if the borrow names from it)-If they did the EU that would NOT be something NEW, but they already said it is an original story

      Hopefully familiar design from original trilogy on vehicles etc. .. Hopefully forceghosts: Obi Wan, Qui Gon, Anakin & YODA (as a puppet) :) & as many as possible from the orginal cast, to see what has happened to their lives.

      & in my opinion it doesn´t need to be dark at all, it could be about a bright future for the galaxy, new generations building up, but of course i want lightsaber duels so some kind of villain needs to be there & maybe we can see some new lightsaber colours?

      & finally i would very much like to see Warwick Davis in many roles, maybe as a villain? & maybe wicket decides to leave endor & travel in space with the crew of millennium falcon? & yes, as much screentime as possible for the MILLENIUM FALCON !!! :)

  12. I think Abrams, Arndt and Kathleen Kennedy should not listen all of us and just make Star Wars pure ENTERTAIMENT and nothing else. That is why mass people watch hollywood movies all over the world. We don’t need oscar movie like The Artist(nobody watch it). We need avatar/avenger movie pure entertaiment and nothing more. But not from marvel universe from star wars universe. It’s so simple.

    1. Wow. Clearly you don’t understand the genius of Star Wars. Star Wars is amazing because it’s NOT pure entertainment shlock. It’s good deeper meanings; good vs evil, politics and empowerment, war, mythology, and all played out in such an iconic and interesting way. It’s a movie series everybody says was going to be for kids, it just goes to show how genius it is if adults enjoy it more than the actual children because of how complex it is. Movies nowadays are just explosions explosions fight scene fight scene gun fight gun fight car chase car chase. It’s just endless crap shoved on the screen that we’re supposed to be interested in the development of, there’s never anything deeper or interesting happening underneath the surface unlike the beauty that is star wars and many other iconic franchises. 10m minutes after you’ve watched modern hollywood films, you’ve forgotten about it. 10 minutes after star wars you’re probably still thinking about it and thinking that you want to see the next film. I want an interesting complex story to get involved in. I men yes, you’re right, pure entertainment is what the mass see, that’s the whole point, it’s depressing, it’s a corporate business designed to make money. They do things the cheap and easy way. Budgets are getting smaller. Where is the movie magic gone? I want movies to go back to the way movies were, when you were like WOW over one tiny thing because you are so invested in the story, instead of drifting off to sleep over a huge explosion because the story means you simply don’t care. I mean it’s ironic really. We haven’t had a “I am your father moment” in god knows how long. Is star wars entertainment? Of course. But is it actually interesting? YES! I want star wars and films in general to go back to that WOW feeling. Because instead, we get mindless rubbish designed to entertain kids and people with a very low IQ.

  14. I hope they at least use Jaina Solo and Mara Jade. Jaina is awesome and a Mara Jade stand-alone movie would be great especially if it took place during the same time frame as Return of the Jedi. Imagine the possibilities.. A new Star Wars movie where Vader is still alive and perhaps she could even be in Jabbas Palace when Luke arrives..

  15. A few nods to the EU I wouldnt mind but other wise Episode 7 should be an Original story. I would think that Lucas and Arndt would have come up with an original story. When has a Star Wars move ever been bassed on an EU book? I will answer that question, “NEVER”, and that should not change for any star wars movie.

  16. It should definitely be an original story. They should however use some of the EU characters. That would make Star Wars fans very happy while leaving the EU as an “Alternate Reality” in the Star Wars Universe.

  19. well that is completely stupid….frankly..i see Han Solo getting killed in episode 7. he has always wanted Han to die, and I do not see him signing a contract for other than one film and to only do it if he finally gets his wish of killing Solo off.They will ignore the EU. and have already stated so..sorry…sad but true. If they follow the Lucas formula of mirroring trilogies…Luke would possibly die in episode 7, just as Obi wan did in episode 4 and as Qui gon did in episode 1…and there will be a big battle and luke/ or Hans kid destroys some kind of giant space ship or space station….then end

  20. It has been said time and time again nothing of the expanded universe will be used. So lets assume that. So no Vong, game characters or Jacen, Jaina, Anakin and Ben (though I personally would miss them).

    What would be logical for us to see in the next trilogy, is another jump of 20 ish years, like between 3 and 4 (thus also leaving room for spin offs and possible tv series).
    In this case, it is possible to bring back Luke, Leia and Han (who would be 50-60 ish, hey, make-up and minor cgi can fix a few years!)for minor roles, which is likely, because Disney can’t really ignore them (there was also some character overlap between the first two trilogies and they are needed for some connection to the other movies).
    Both of these things make sense, right?
    Now, the next bit is pure speculation, what I’d PERSONALLY like to see. I’m disregarding any EU, though some of it may seem somewhat familliar. I think it would be next to impossible not to have some overlap, since the Expanded Universe is so.. EXPANDED.

    So, here it is:
    In VII, we are introduced to a small community of young jedi, being educated about the Force by Luke. We might see a few holocrons or recordings from Yoda, Qui-Gon, Windu, I dunno, lots of options there. At the beginning of the movie, everything is peaceful in this community. But suddenly, they are under attack! This could be externally, by aliëns, Sith, remnants of the Empire or something, or, much more interesting, from the inside. The attack could be subtle at first, then out of the open, imagine Luke fighting a younger, STRONGER student, who wins, maybe kills him, and leaves the community). The students ask for help from Leia, who is, inevitably, doing something governmental, and is with Han, who is bored from being tied down and up for adventure! (Add in Chewie, Treepio and R2 or Lando wherever you like.)They set out to hunt for the bad guy(s), find the location of their base, and an epic fight starts. At the end of the fight, one of the old characters dies tragically, but data is discovered about some hopeful new way (or person that will help) to defeat the bad guy(s). The bad guy gets away, but is wounded. End of VII

    In VIII, there will be a search for the truth of the information found in VII, a few dead ends, a few fights, and at the end, the information turns out to be true, but the person/item/thing is on some dangerous planet/location, and it takes stealth, help from an indigenous people (NOT cute/silly), and some awesome tricks to get to it. Eventually they do, of course. Now and then the movie cuts to the bad guy(s), who lick their wounds and gather their strenght. End of VIII.

    In IX, our group of young jedi goes looking for the antagonist. Before they find them though, they walk into a trap and turn out to have been betrayed by someone (for a good reason, of course). They are taken to the bad guy(s), but escape, and end up in some facility of theirs (NOT a weapons factory), where they see some horrible stuff and free a bunch of victims. They confront the bad guy(s), and use the secret weapon. This however, turns out not to be enough! The joined strenght of the young jedi, some of the locals who joined them, and a few victims is needed secure the victory. In the fight, one of the last few ‘oldies’ sacrifices him/herself and gets mortally wounded. This one is forgotten by the bad guys, but in the end, is crucial to his defeat. The last few minutes are filled with celebration, but also closure!

    Again: none of this is based on stuff I KNOW, just on what I have read before and would like to see.
