What are the odds Disney introduces Mara Jade or some crude imitation at some point?
I vote for a Luke Spin off between jedi and TFA. Dane Dehann can play younger luke and pic related as Mara jade
I think Kevin Zegers would be better for younger Luke.
If they were going to do that, don't you think they'd have already done it?
It's not like bringing back the original cast has really mattered so far; Han essentially took Mara's place.

trending at 85% probability
I'm no eugenics major, but it would seem to me that a blonde father and a redheaded mother would produce a redheaded child, not a... whatever Daisy Ridley's real hair color is.
I'm actually kinda floored by how close they got Ben to Jacen.
Idk how this works, but green is his color
it'll be me. Disney pls, give me 1 month with cavill and blonde hair dye and I'll be your jedi flipping Luke, bros
I'm more annoyed than anything: they swore up and down they needed creative freedom to do whatever they want then they ripped off the novels and ANH. But hey, Disney has been spitting in my face for years and this isn't the thread for that.
Cavil should've been Antares Draco or Uliq-qel Droma.
Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time... a long time.
Speaking of, I'm putting the likelihood at about 90% that the story of how Ben Solo became Kylo Ren is functionally identical to the story of Kyp Durron, only with Snoke instead of Exar Kun.
You should make a visit to
/co/sometime. At least some of us there keep the old ways. I posted Tales of the Jediin it's entirety not to long ago.
The story really shows it's age, but you can still appreciate it for what it is. In my naivety, I had hoped Disney was going to take the opportunity to fix the canon and use it for a film series with KOTOR and keep Bastila Shan as Vima Sunrider like she was supposed to be.
I always thought the Skywalkers should've been descendants of Uliq and Nomi. Don't hate me.
Nah, the Qel-Dromas and the Skywalkers work fine being separate families, no need to make the universe seem any smaller.
[spoiler[ I do hope they make a Tales of the Jedi trilogy in between episodes VII-IX and the next sequel trilogy. With based James Purefoy as Exar Kun AKA Marc Antony in space. I'd lvoe if they had a whole sword-and-sandal epic feel to it that made it seem like it really was Star Wars's ancient past. [/spoiler]
Yeah, they don't have to be. It's just my silly
Anyway, we're getting off track.
Given Mara Jade's already huge popularity in star wars fandom, I'm -or would be- surprise if Disney doesn't implicate her in new canon in some way. And turning her into cheap imitation know off will no doubt piss off Star Wars fans. I doubt Disney wants that if the nostalgic pandering of ep VII is any indication.
I was re-reading Thrawn trilogy just recently and I still found it still to this day superior trilogy sequel and more in line with Star wars yet also feel and be something bit different.
>And turning her into cheap imitation know off will no doubt piss off Star Wars fans.
I don't think they really care; people lap that shit up.
True. Though Star Wars fans can be quite fickle and autistic with huge backlash.
Also, funny how none of the "Legends" material will be on that database. Especially someone like Mara Jade who is big in the star wars fandom (appeared in video games, have action figures and statues etc).
yes please in my star wars

Kathleen Kennedy can't get fired soon enough.
