You guys let us know your hopes for the Star Wars Anthology movies, among many other things.
I would love Mara Jade from the Expanded Universe to have her own movie and be elevated to official canon! I’d hate to see Disney cock- up twice over and pull an Avengers/ Black Widow- style mess, with no female- led Star Wars movies for years on end. Mara Jade has such a great character arc and so much opportunity for great action scenes. And depending where you take her story she could be tied into the main franchise via Skywalker.
Casting- wise, how does Battlestar’s Katee Sackhoff look with red hair? Let’s find out please! ( Watch Oculus – Ed) Caveat: do not costume her in that hideous, tacky, fan- servicey catsuit! It’s such an illogical outfit for someone of her profession/ lifestyle.
