How many of you are Star Wars fans? Well, I am a HUGE fan. Our family has watched all of the movies, a hundred times over. Also, reading the novels is one of my favorite past times. My preference in timeline relates to the character of Luke Skywalker, basically storylines after Return of the Jedi. Needless to say, I am super excited about another Star Wars Trilogy.
There has been a lot of speculation about which actors or characters will be in Star Wars VII. Even more speculation has been discussed about which stories will be followed. It appears Michael Arndt, originally tapped as the writer, was removed from the project. Supposedly, he was going to close the door on Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, and Luke Skywalker in favor of their offspring. There are several storylines that would make great movies, but I am going to stick with three.
1. Luke falls to the dark side
2. Yuuzhan Vong war
3. Darth Cadeus
All three sagas have enough storyline to be trilogies in their own right. Luke falling to the dark side has some really good content. There are many interesting plots, one of which is Palpatine lives. Palpatine proves his claim of defeating death through the dark side, as he once told Anakin. The main plot of this trilogy would be Luke falling to the dark side. Find out what happens to Luke and Leia’s relationship. How do Luke and Palpatine co-exist? Let us not spoil anymore of this story.
The Yuuzhan Vong war series is epic. A story, which was told over a great number of book with several authors. There are so many plotlines where so much happens. The Vong are a race of aliens who do not know of the force and are unaffected by it’s power. In this storyline, there are two character deaths that rock the Star Wars universe. The galaxy changes forever in this set of plots. This plot line causes the change in destiny for another main character, which leads to the rise of Darth Cadeus.
The Darth Cadeus saga is a decent story because of how this character is born. Cadeus, a sith lord, was not developed, like many of the other sith, who took up the dark side. Several character deaths are in this storyline, as well. One is catastrophic and is felt for years in the Star Wars world and story lines. Some nice storylines are written for the Mandalorians and the newest Mandalore. Can you say Boba Fett storyline? Who can get enough of the Mandalorians or Fett?
Many more details could be given for these three plots, but then I would just be spoiling some great reading for you guys. In my opinion, the Yuuzhan Vong would be the best story because of action and character losses and development. However, Luke falling to the dark side is a perfect fit for the movies previous trilogies. Anakin struggles with the dark side and succumbs. Then, we saw Luke fight against the sith; following me? Now, Luke falls to the dark side. It seems to be a perfect match to the series. In my mind, the Vong series is the obvious choice.
