Star Wars Anthology Movie Wishlist

(Anonymous) 2016-01-07 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know about you guys, but I'm super excited about the standalone Anthology movies and the potential to focus on specific characters and eras outside of the main trilogies. Sooooo, my question is: if you could pick anything in the Star Wars universe to be the focus on one of the Anthology movies, what would it be?

For me, it's one hundred percent an Ahsoka movie, especially one that follows her from The Clone Wars to Rebels.

I'm kind of dying for the young Han Solo series, as long as he is well cast! I doubt they will use any stories from the Legends books but I'm still interested in seeing what they come up with.

Yeah, the biggest hurdle for the Han movie is going to be casting. Like, I already feel sorry for whoever they get, because even if he's perfect, there will be too many people who won't be able to get over the fact that he's not literally Harrison Ford de-aged. At this point, they probably need to go with someone unknown, just so it's easier for them to disappear into the role.

But I'm looking forward to it, too! Like you say, I don't know how much they'll take from EU - Han defecting might seem too similar to Finn's story in the aftermath of TFA. But if it involves Han and Chewie's first meeting and plays like a rom-com between them, I am here for that! XD

I'm kind of gutted they cast Billie Lourd as Lt Connix for TFA, because I would have loved a movie with her as Leia that focused on her adventures in the lead up to ANH. The resemblance between her and Carrie is uncanny (for obvious reasons) and while Scream Queens was kind of a mess, she was always really watchable and charismatic, despite playing a catty sociopath.
