The Future Of Star Wars: Possible Plots For Episode VII | Dark Empire
Dark Empire

Another trip to the years immediately following the Battle Of Endor, this one goes full throttle with the OTT plotlines, having Emperor Palpatine’s consciousness transferred to a cloned body and Luke agree to become his apprentice (under duress). Han, Chewie and the rest try to rescue him even as Palpatine creates massive new weapons and takes aim at various planets. Some things never change, eh?

How It Might Work
We’d probably ditch the cloned Palpatine thing (after all, he’s not exactly a new threat). But Dark Empire is loaded with cinematic ideas, including Luke successfully crash landing a captured, Alliance-controlled Star Destroyer on Coruscant and Leia proving to be a total badass yet again by stopping the big threat. Oh, and Boba Fett’s back! Hooray!
