With the release of the first Star Wars spin off, Rogue One, we take a look at other spin offs we all want to see.
More Star Wars Stories
I’m a massive Star Wars fan. But mainly of the films. I was never one to delve into the canon books or comics. There is a massive Star Wars Universe out there that goes back centuries before Darth Vader ruled the Galaxy. Stories about how the Sith first came about, how the Emperor became the Emperor, the origins of The Rule of Two, the list goes on. When Rogue One came out, I found it surprisingly refreshing to get a break from the Skywalker saga that has been going on for almost 40 years now. We get a taste of what else is going on with other unsung heroes we haven’t met yet. And with a Han Solo film set to start filming soon, here’s a taste of what us at Goos3D want to see in the future of Star Wars.
I think it’s a story we all want to see. In Empire, Yoda tells Luke he has trained Jedi for 800 years. It’s safe to say that Yoda has almost seen and done it all. He has seen Empires rise and fall. Jedi turn to the dark side and Sith brought back to the light. One question we all want to know is where is Yoda from? At no point is his home planet nor his species mentioned in the whole Star Wars saga. There are so many avenues Disney could go down with Yoda. Let’s hope they give the fans what the want.
There were talks of a Boba Fett spin off being released but rumours say it has been scrapped. I for one would still be very much interested in seeing how one of the galaxies most efficient bounty hunters gained the trust of Vader.
We know that Boba is the son of Jango Fett. He was created along with 10 million other Clones we see deployed in Attack of the Clones. But Jango requested one clone be created just for him who isn’t motored to do and say whatever he was ordered. Jango met his demise at the end of AOTC, but we don’t know what happened to Boba afterwards. It’s likely this film would take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. We could also be treated to a bit more Vader, who possibly could have groomed Boba into the bounty hunter he grew up to be. It would also explain why Vader seems to trust him so much.
In ROTS, Palpatine tells Anakin about a Sith called Darth Plagueis who was so powerful he could control the mediclorians in the force and even bring people back to life. After he thought his apprentice this, his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It isn’t said directly, but Palpatine is basically telling Anakin that he is the apprentice in the story. And that he can teach him this power and help stop Padme from dying, which Anakin has been dreaming of frequently, similar to his mothers death. I for one would be very interested in seeing the power of this Darth Plagueis and the beginnings of The Emporer’s rise to power.
The Rule of Two
The Rule of Two basically states that there can only ever be 2 Siths in existence at one time. The Master, and The Apprentice. It was created by Darth Bane, a Sith that existed long before the days of The Empire. He created it because he thought the Brotherhood of Darkness was weak. If there was more then one apprentice, he felt the weak ones would hold back the stronger ones. It also prevented the weaker ones from possibly over throwing the master and being ruled by someone weak. This all happened after a war between the Jedi and Sith that lasted about 3000 years, which in itself would make an epic trilogy. Think Lord of the Rings, but with lightsabers.
Besides Vader, Darth Maul was probably the most badass Sith in the series. With the double-edged lightsaber and freakin horns, Darth Maul is one Sith that if you saw him, you’d probably turn and run before he even took the Lightsaber out. He was a scary looking dude, but there is a whole Dathomirian Zabrek race of him. Where did he come from and where did the Emperor find him? He is the first Sith we know of that the Emperor trained. A back story to Darth Maul would be awesome to see and would also give us a taste of the Star Wars Universe just as the Emperor would have been planning his take over of the Galaxy. It’s one worth thinking about.
As I said earlier, there is a massive universe spanning thousands of years worth exploring. Star Wars has been around for almost 40 years, and a lot of people would be more then happy if it stayed around for 40 more. Hopefully Disney will keep the universe alive. Tell us below what spin offs you’d like to see Disney take on in the future.
