DISNEY! ALL THIS STUFF OUR READERS WANT BETTER BE IN THE NEXT MOVIE, OR WE’LL THROW A big KYLO REN- STYLE STROP!
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.”
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!”
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.”
