Star Wars: reboot/remake?

They're not going to recon VII-IX.

Sequels probably should have been made in the 90s.

Well I suppose you could make a sequel without the old cast or have the Luke/Han in minor roles.

They didn't do a very good job in the world building or passing the torch to a new generation.

So much information was put in other media so it was hard to follow what plot they did have.

I’ve read no SW books since before the EU got de-canonized, and I’ve never read a SW comic book, and I had no trouble following the plot of the sequels.

Only issue I have with them is that Luke’s story makes it so that there isn’t really room to tell more stories about him. Or at least not as much room as they could have left.

Personally I would have kinda sidelined Luke after the first movie. Wouldn't have killed him off though and there would have been a reunion with Leia and Han.

A reboot would be beating a dead horse even more than it already is

EDIT:
At least if it was a total reboot. I'd be down with a reboot of the Disney sequels (as this would allow then to de-canonize Last Jedi)

I think having Traveller Star Wars would be cool.
Psionics = Force Users
Travellers = Smugglers and the criminal underworld
Imperium = Empire or Republic or some other star-spanning culture.

Base the trilogy on 3 Shakespeare plays, like Timon of Athens, The Winter's Tale, and perhaps Julius Caesar.

Brand new characters, far away from the Skywalkers.

In a (different) galaxy far far away...

They are already doing a Star Wars spinoff with High Republic.
Although what was so far revealed for it was less than enticing. It has a very Knights of the round Table feel, the primary antagonists are the Nihil (space vikings) and one of the first storylines starts with a freighter breaks up while in hyperspace and now the debris endanger the galaxy as they might hit planets with the speed of light and cause massive devastation which makes one wonder why build deathstars in the first place (or don't blow them up with such debris).

What Star Wars needs is not a reboot, its better writers.

Seriously?

You could technobabble away the problem in Last Jedi because of the hyperspace tether, but this is just stupid.

Yeah. Putting the Holdo Manuver into canon was perhaps the second biggest writing fail in Star Wars history. The first being Jar Jar.

Thats the news I have heard. Its in German, so no idea how useful this is. I will link it but am currently not in the mood to hunt down the source of this. So hopefully google translate does a good job with it

EDIT: Found the English source (IGN, the full first chapter of the book)

“The destruction of the Legacy Run is the catalyst for a galaxy-wide disaster. Fragments of the destroyed cargo vessel begin flying out of hyperspace at super-accelerated speeds, meaning that deadly missiles of debris can appear anywhere at any time, from the Outer Rim to the Core. In this moment of crisis, the Republic turns to the guardians of peace and justice—the Jedi.”

Re: the Spoiler tag just upthread
Umm, scriptwriters, Jedi (guardians of peace and justice) should be dealing with people-caused problems, not nature-caused problems.

Because your galaxy spontaneously manifests lightspeed-capable cargo vessels? If not, it is a people-caused problem

In a time of crisis, you use the resources you have that can do the job.

The Republic Navy, which has (or can build or upgrade / kitbash) some Cruiser -sized ships capable of "All power to the tractor beams!" is who I would call first. That and the Galactic Astronomical and Hyperspatial Survey, to make maps and try to figure out where the debris is / will be - so I know where to put my fleet and when they have to be there.

"Use the Force to substitute for the map that isn't ready yet" would be a good assignment for Jedi, but not the central role in cleaning up the mess.

Last time I checked, the Republic Navy cannot predict the future. Jedi can. So... given the stated scenario, you'd probably need the cruisers to be in place before things show up. How does that happen, I wonder? Dumb luck?

Not that I know the plot of the work, but really, when you have space wizards with lots of different powers, and something weird happens, you probably call in the space wizards.

Absolutely. Even just the premise that Jedi should stick to people-caused problems is odd. Why? They have magic powers and can help in a wide range of situations.

Sadly, we will have to wait till KK is no longer involved with Lucasfilm.

Then it will be a GREAT day for Star Wars Fans when the KK-prequels are de-canonized.

I can't wait.

And the whole story of the "Veil" is already a part of CANON, as it is part of the animated series.
