We all have visualizations of how future films will turn out in a franchise. Just because there isn't a book to ground the story in doesn't mean we don't have an abundance of source material. Now of course we won't be able to predict the newer planets they might create or bring up such as Jakku or Takodama, but we can hope and dream for older planets in the Expanded Universe to be exposed on the silver screen. These are not in particular order, I'm just coming up with 10 planets from the top of my head.
We heard about it when we read Wookiepedia articles about Han Solo. There are even ships designed by Corellia. We hear about the best star pilots being from this planet. Enough with the teasing! I want to see this planet! I want to see another planet that'll make Mos Eisley look like a Monastery! I want to see a scummy place that make the seedy under belly of Coruscant look like Kamino! Enough teasing, guys. Let's see the home of the best star pilots.
Long before EA got their hands on it, Sullust was first mentioned in Return of the Jedi. Lando Calrissian's wingman is from Sullust. Later in Empire at War we see that this planet is a volcanic planet that's used for Rebel vehicle production. Then later in Battlefront we see that Sullust is a significant place of conflict in the Galactic Civil War. I liked in the design EA made, it wasn't just a copy and paste of Mustafar, it was a unique take on how very much a lava planet could have regular clear skies. I have theory that the place might have an ocean, after all molten rock is lava and water coming together. Either way, I'd be happy to see just what the hell these two factions were doing on this molten rock.
Years later, we catch two glimpses of Dantooine. Once it was mentioned by Princess Leia when she was trying to keep Tarkin from destroying her homeworld of Alderaan. Then we see it in the Clone Wars Animated Series as seen above.
Apparently the Rebels had a base here and that's something to consider. When the Empire found the abandoned base, was it without incident? Did the Imperials come across Rebels. Did the Rebels evacuate without leaving behind any trace of evidence. If not, what did they use this base for exactly? Why would the Rebels leave? There's a lot more questions left than answered when it comes to events surrounding Dantooine. And I would like to see this in an Anthology film of Star Wars.
Haven't we already seen enough of Endor? I want to see the Death Star wreckage. Remember in Jakku where a Star Destroyer was crashed into the sand dunes? Remember that AT-AT walker Rey used as a home? I want to see how the Ewoks reacted to the wreckage of the Death Star. Was it an apocalyptic event that the Rebels had to help out? Was it a massive humanitarian crisis Princess Leia had to deal with?
There's a lot of questions and it would just be fascinating to see what happened to the second Death Star, which comes another question, did Yavin IV receive any wreckage from the first Death Star?
Korriban is the ancient homeworld of the Sith. It's a desert world that is still haunted by the many Sith Lords and the Dark Side Aura that's still present in the world. Basically think if Ancient Egypt was haunted by cultist warriors.
There's a strong possibility that Supreme Leader Snoke would use this planet as his home. The Supreme Leader is assumed to be strong enough in the Dark Side to be leading Kylo Ren over to the First Order. Occasionally , Emperor Palpatine would come to this planet to meditate and refocus his Dark Side Energy. I would just love to see how Film Production could design and bring this dark place to life.
Whether we like it or not, the Clone Wars are canon and it is a major conflict alongside the Galactic Civil War. We may not see this, but it would be interesting to see more history, meaning the no longer active Droid Factories. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin was ordered to shut down all the Droids. Within Star Wars Battlefront II, the droids are reactivated by a Geonosian terrorist. The Empire puts a stop to it and the Droids are shut down once more.
If you thought seeing a Star Destroyer in the ground was surreal, just imagine how eerie it would be to walk within this large factory Anakin and Padme was traversed through. All these inactive droids that make the place look like a skeletal version of the Terra Cotta Army. I know this would certainly be George Lucas's nightmare due to the anti-technology reliance messages throughout Star Wars and his short film, THX 1138. This facility would be a great area of exploration and perhaps the accidental reactivation of the droids, making for a great chase scene. Something unfamiliar to the newer characters and something familiar to Prequel ones.
We've seen plenty of Coruscant, what are you talking about? No, there was one part that we were promised. Star Wars The Clones Wars (2008) teased it in an episode. And there was massive hype where this game was being compared to the Nathan Drake of Star Wars. I'm talking about 1313, a level of the planet that takes days to get down to. So yeah, we've seen seedy underbelly of Coruscant, but being that Disney now has finances to fund into video games the fans demand for more! They want the hype to be fulfilled! 1313 is a must!
Why this particular planet? We're promised a Boba Fett anthology film and I've been thinking about this. In Star Wars Clone Wars, we're introduced to more than just Jabba the Hutt. Yes, we've seen Gardulla the Hutt in Phantom Menace and the Jango Fett video game (awesome scene with a Krayt Dragon), but in the Clone Wars we're introduced to a conglomerate of Hutts. It seems that we've come across a gathering of the Hutt Cartels which hold an alliance to preserve their power and wealth.
I'm pretty sure Boba Fett didn't start day one with sending a job application to Jabba the Hutt or Darth Vader. He had to build up to that height of badassery. In order to be the deadliest bounty hunter in the galaxy, he had to work and dig through the grime left behind most likely by a Hutt. In Star Wars The Old Republic, the bounty hunter character starts off on Nal Hutta. I see no reason for a young Boba Fett to walk in the same foot steps thousands of Bounty Hunters have before, working for a Hutt on their home turf of Nal Hutta.
When we first heard about Ord Mantell, Han referred to when he ran into a bounty hunter on the planet in Empire Strikes Back. Just what the hell happened on Ord Mantell that ultimately made Han leave the Rebel Alliance after he was clearly a part of the Rebel Alliance toward the end of A New Hope?
What we do know for sure is that this bounty hunter wasn't a Greedo. How do we know that, Han referred to the incident as if he were too close for comfort? Wouldn't the Rebel Alliance be powerful enough to counteract against the criminal syndicates? Apparently not, being that Han and Leia argued about him leaving the whole time. So mainly, I just want to see this planet to see what made Han change his mind about the Rebel Alliance.
No, I am NOT talking about Holiday Special. I'm talking about the Kashyyyk we see in Republic Commando and Revenge of the Sith. I also want to see better justice for Chewbacca's home life because there is no way you're going to tell me that he lives in a 70s Bungalow watching a crossdressing celebrity say "Stir, whip. Stir whip, stir, whip, whip, whip! Stir, whip, stir whip, stir whip, whip, whip! Stir whip, stir, whip, whip, stir!" Ok you get it.
Basically it's said in the Force Unleashed that wookies were enslaved and used for labor by the Empire...after ironically freeing them from the slavery of the Separatists...jeez guys even the United States didn't...*sigh*...never mind...
Basically I want to see what happened to Chewbacca and what his home life was like. From what I hear, Han is the one that freed Chewbacca from his captivity whenever Han was an Imperial Cadet and they took off to become outlaws. I'm hoping they still keep to that canon in an anthology film. It would also be interesting to see a Trandoshan's interactions with the wookies...the lizard thing in Empire that didn't wear shoes, that's a Trandoshan.
Those are the Ten Planets I want to see in some form of movie. What planets do you want to see in Star Wars Episode 8 and future movies?
