Within the next five years, we will get a five new Star Wars movies. There will be a new trilogy, which has already started with the release of The Force Awakens. But we will also get three spin-off films. These films include Rogue One, Han Solo, and Boba Fett. But what will happen after these five films? Will we get more spin-offs? Hopefully! So I created a list of my top eight spin-offs that I think should come out after Boba Fett.
Of course, I had to include Kenobi! When there was the announcement of three spin-off films, I heard the idea of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. I love the idea! It's a great idea. It would be set after Episode III, and would be about Obi-Wan and his time on Tatooine. Well, some argue that that wouldn't be a great story, because Tatooine is a very boring planet. While Tatooine isn't a very interesting planet, it has interesting qualities. This movie could involve Tusken Raiders, Jabba the Hutt and his criminals, and so much more! This movie almost doesn't have to be on Tatooine, either. The Force spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn could convince Obi-Wan to leave the planet for some mission. Either way, in my opinion, this movie is one of the best ideas for a spin-off.
The Force Unleashed
I've said before that I really, really want a Force Unleashed Netflix series. But if that doesn't happen, a movie would be the next best thing! The new Star Wars canon has integrated things from the old Expanded Universe into the new one. There are even rumors of Grand Admiral Thrawn appearing in Star Wars Rebels (which be awesome by the way). I love the story of Starkiller, and I think it's one of the best EU stories out there. His story would fit perfectly in a movie. Somehow put The Force Unleashed 1 and 2 together and make one big, great story.
Republic Commando/Imperial Commando
If a Star Wars TV show happens, I want it to be this one the most of all. But, a movie would be very good as well. I loved the Republic Commando game. I also loved the first book in the series. And I think a movie or Netflix series could easily be made out of Republic Commandos. A movie, though, would have to cover different time eras. It would cover the time of maybe Delta Squad and Omega Squad, during the Clone Wars. It would also cover Order 66, the Great Jedi Purge, and the Imperial Era. Overall, I think this would be a very fun movie, and it's a great idea.
Knights of the Old Republic
When my dad and I talk about Star Wars movies, this one always comes up. We want this to be the next Star Wars trilogy, after Episode IX. The story is so rich, and full of different characters, planets, and species, like Revan, Darth Malgus, Ven Zallow, and Setele Shan. It is the best idea for another Star Wars trilogy, and I think many fans would love to see hundreds of Jedi battling hundreds of Sith, or many Jedi fighting many Mandalorians.
This movie would be better made after a Knights of the Old Republic trilogy, but it would okay if it was made before. This movie would show the rise of Darth Bane in the Sith Empire, then him getting his apprentice Darth Zannah and killing all of the Sith. Honestly, I think a whole trilogy could be made out of Darth Bane, but that's probably too much. Bane's story is one that needs to be explored, whether it's a game, movie, or book.
This movie only applies to the theory of Supreme Leader Snoke being Darth Plagueis, if he is not, this movie has no purpose. If Snoke is actually Darth Plagueis in disguise, then this movie would be perfect, though. Base it off the Darth Plagueis book, and add more to it. Show Plagueis killing his master, Darth Tenebrous, and Palpatine killing Plagueis, but Plagueis surviving. Show all of Plagueis' life and how he became Snoke. I think it would be a very interesting movie, and seeing the backstory of the big villain of the new trilogy would be vert cool.
My favorite arc in The Clone Wars animated series was all of the episodes about Savage Opress and his brother, Darth Maul. I know I want to see more of Maul, but I think his story will be covered in Star Wars Rebels. So, I think a movie showing Palpatine going to Dathomir to get his new apprentice, Mother Talzin, but instead getting Maul, would be great! Palpatine would train Maul for years and he becomes the assassin he's known as. The movie could actually end with Maul going to Naboo, which would lead right up to The Phantom Menace. I would cast Sam Witwer to do the voice of Maul, and Ray Park to be him in live action. Those are the two best Darth Maul's, and it shouldn't be changed.
There is a huge gap in Ahsoka's story. The last time we saw her, she left the Jedi Order and went to do who knows what. The next time we saw her she was a very wise, Yoda-type figure. I want to see how she got that way. I want to know what she was doing after The Clone Wars and before Rebels. She has a very interesting story, and Dave Filoni needs to write this movie and finish it. Ashley Eckstein, who voices the character, would be perfect for the live action role. She looks like her, she's young enough, and she'll have a lot of make up on, so it wouldn't make too much of a difference.
There you have it. These are my top eight ideas for the next Star Wars spin-off after Boba Fett. I had a lot of fun writing this, and I had many ideas, some that I didn't include are Mara Jade/The Emperor's Hand, Kyle Katarn, Cad Bane, Captain Phasma, and the Grand Inquisitor. I love Star Wars, and I definitely want to see more spin-offs and anthology stories.
