Put in your Episode 7 predictions! See if you can write what is unwritten! Predict the unpredictable, or in most cases, predict the predictable!


- the new Skywalker(Skywalker/Solo?) protagonist/focus will be female (with apologies to Princess Leia: not a "strong female character" enough to undo this "creative" move?)

- the rule of 2 for the Sith is broken - MOAR SITH!

- MOAR SITH = MOAR BADASS(read: ridiculous) SITH LIGHTSABER VARIATIONS! say hello to the onscreen Lightscythe! Light-chaku!

- See your favorite (cashgrab) OT characters relegated to background work: Commander Solo dismisses briefing rooms, Senator Organa-Solo leads a house session, Master Luke Skywalker instructs baby Jedi in how to remove their personalities

- Wedge Antillies is the highest ranking Rebel

- Old Boba Fett...yup, we dismiss all liscenced comic and novel ideas except that he climbed out of the pit. Not only that, but he's tamed the beast and rides it on Tattooine like we're watching Dune.

- Old Han vs Old Boba...even though you fantasized about a real rematch, did you also imagine them as 70 year old men?

- Darth Maul...again...robo spider/goat legs, whatever...he's also ageless with evil

- Stormtroopers II - someone reopens the old cloning facilities...because "its like poetry"

- at some point, in a cutesy nod, Chewbacca is given some sort of medal

- Alec Guiness is ressurected via CGI! Ewan McGregor supplies the voice - OR - young ghost/McGregory Obi, because if Anakin can get off murdering children and get to be young looking again...

- personal longshot prediction: Luke Skywalker has trained no new Jedi after we last saw him and has stopped practicing/promoting , perhaps letting it go due to the inconsistencies of the Jedi philosophy*, the lies and failures of the past*, and the inherent danger of force sensitives* or perhaps just letting his guard down under the flag of peace in the galaxy. A new evil (Sith?) shows up and allies itself with the remnants of the old Empire, threatens to turn the force sensitive child(ren) of the Organa/Solo side of the family, and Luke takes up the mantle of Jedi again. Of course, that would mean that only Luke and possibly the new villain would wield lightsabers...and we could never let that happen, as its boring if a lightsaber isnt ignited every two minutes* (*see prequel trilogy*)

You know, hearing Lucas say that in reference to all of the forced, shoehorned OT references in the prequels was when I realized this guy was not a writer.

But anyway. I guess I really don't have any predictions about this movie yet. I have a lot of hopes, no predictions. I guess I will make a general prediction that Abrams will be very "old school" about this and leave out a good portion of prequel nonsense like meicalorians (not debunk it, but not address it either). But again....I guess that would fall under the "hope" category.

If Lucas was still at the helm the predictions would come a lot easier.

When I'm feeling more creative and sarcastic I'll come back with more :)

I'll just wait and see. No need to predict anything.

OK, here's a prediction: Much like the R2 cameo in the Star Trek movie where he's floating amongst debris of blown away ships, the new Star Wars will feature an easter egg Star Trek character.

Here's my prediction there's gonna be or there already is an awful lot of hyping which in turn will spark an awful lot of complaining and then the movie is gonna hit theaters and everyone(even those that complained) are gonna go see it. The movie will make enough money to be considered a hit or at least successful enough to move ahead with more movies or even spinoffs and we'll be back where we started. That's my prediction, a second prediction is that the toys from the movie are gonna sell... a lot, so again more money to be made from the movie.

But we're talking predictions here, not facts :)

But his was a good prediction, 90% of your post was just poking fun at Star Wars, or SW fans in general... @smilepunch@

I would say that about 50% of my post is poking fun...yet I put it out there because its not that far fetched. its true that 90% of SW fans lack a sense of humor about SW and their fandom...I mean, I and many others think that the concept of a lightscythe is ridiculous, but how many more would salivate at the thought? Any of these concepts could prove true in fan catering...It would be nice to see the finished film, look back at this thread, and maybe be able to say "TNI users could have come up with that..." Or, "Wow, they completely surprised us with the new SW! We were way off!"


more speculation:

forget the ghost of Obi, Hayden Skywalker will appear to guide Luke! Gotta further justify deleting Shaw, I guess.

callbacks: the lines "bad feeling about this" and "here we go again" will be uttered...probably more than once. And while not yet a SW cliche, expect the inevitable "getting too old for this" is some form. A long shot, but some cant resist running pop culture into the ground: "It's a trap!" from an extremely old Ackbar, or his grandson, Colonel Ackbar, or something...

Death Star III (or IV, if you like Star Tours)

expect to see stars that have less place in the SW Universe than Jefferson Starship and Harvey Korman: who can guess what stars will lobby, or beg, to be in it. Even in small cameos...shudder...

one element ripped from the expanded universe and repurposed: the death of Chewbacca...I must see Malla, Lumpy, and Itchy (if still around) at the funeral!

The Falcon in shambles!...not unlike a ship we will see in another "Star" movie...

freefall lightsaber battle...freefall not unlike another "Star" movie

while the character wont appear (or will he?), the mask of Darth Vader will be utilized...cashcow visual/taunt against the Skywalker gang

the actions of the new Jedi council and New Republic will be questioned by spunky reporter, Cindel Towani

New Death Star type superweapon? Nope. The remnants of the Empire go full on terrorist with chemical/germ warfare, introducing a plague that affects the midichlorians in the blood of force sensitives.

Lando opens a casino and is embroiled in the politics of legalized gambling in the lower sector of Coruscant.

I'm surprised no one else has thought of this one:Mickey Mouse is the main villian.

yup...of course. if the "rule of 2" would be broken it would have to be done with cloning. Again, its like poetry.

hidden base on Dagobah

Han Solo has a run in with Rotta the Hutt

the remnants of the Empire will be more diverse (bye bye Limeys), with women, aliens, and peoples of different color...though probably for more than just weak story reasons. Or maybe that will just be the New Republic's game...which would be more predictable. Cuz the good guys are more tolerant, right, Hollywood?

Leia is the one the prophecy spoke of...the one that will bring balance to the force.

(lol) Best prediction yet...

I'd like to speculate that Yoda might appear as a Force spirit to Luke in a poignant scene. I'd like to see that.

There's an April Fool's joke going around online that George Takei was going to be in the new movies.

I'm one not into much on what story we will see but on the future look of the ships and gadgets..We seen what looked like convential ships during the origional trilogy and the 1950's style looks on the prequel but what will the futuristic Star Destroyers and fighter craft looks like?

I bet these stories focus on the people loyal to the Emprie as the rebellion this time like I have read in some of the stories
