MORE ORIG­I­NAL­ITY

1 Lots of you told us that while you en­joyed The Force Awak­ens, many of the plot points – like a droid car­ry­ing se­cret plans and a planet- de­stroy­ing weapon – felt a bit, well, fa­mil­iar. “Be brave,” says @ ClubFDO. JJ has se­cured the perime­ter now. Rian John­son should move from there to some­thing new.” “No more Death Stars!” chips in John Gardiner.

LOTS OF LUKE

2 Un­sur­pris­ingly, pretty much ev­ery­one wants more Luke, which won’t ex­actly be dif­fi­cult. Peo­ple gen­er­ally sug­gested that he’s seen train­ing Rey, but Jo­eri Lonsu had an in­ter­est­ing dif­fer­ent an­gle. “Use the orig­i­nal ac­tors and make them young again with CGI… show what hap­pened to Luke five years af­ter Re­turn Of The Jedi, in a flash­back.”

LEIA HERO­ICS

3 While it makes sense that, as a Gen­eral, Leia wouldn’t be get­ting her hands dirty on the front­line, quite a few of you want to see her show­ing how handy she is with a blaster. “I’d like to see Car­rie Fisher in­volved in a fi­nal bat­tle – per­haps against Cap­tain Phasma,” said John C Far­ris. Snoozie Hick, mean­while, had two words: “Jedi Leia”.

AC­KNOWL­EDGE I- III

4 The fact that The Force Awak­ens was light on call­backs to the pre­quel movies didn’t sit well with some. Amy Dohnt wrote, “Stone- cold badass Padmé Ami­dala doesn’t even fea­ture in a throw­away line? Not cool.” MR Michael, mean­while, re­quested, “Gun­gans, Geonosians… any­thing that re­spects all six films, not just the first three!”

AD­VEN­TURE!

5 This one word cropped up a lot… Andy Foster was just one of those who used it. “Rian John­son def­i­nitely shouldn’t go with ‘ grim, gritty sci- fi’ like he’s pre­vi­ously been quoted as say­ing. Ad­ven­ture!” Craig Oxbrow con­curs: “Rey, Finn, Poe and BB- 8 hav­ing ex­cit­ing ad­ven­tures in space. That’s all I need.”
